What Car? Awards For Kia

Kia UK has won two awards at the 2023 What Car? Car of the Year Awards, including a major category win for the Kia Sportage.

The Kia Sportage was named ‘Family SUV of the Year’ ahead of others in the most popular and hotly contested vehicle segment in the UK. The latest Kia Sportage was introduced at the start of 2022. It was the UK’s sixth best-selling new car last year, with 29,655 units of the SUV being purchased by UK buyers through 2022. This version is the first in five generations of Sportage to offer hybrid and plug-in hybrid options.

Meanwhile, the Kia EV9 was voted winner of the ‘Reader Award’. This trophy is voted for by What Car? readers, who named the upcoming EV9 as their most highly anticipated new car of 2023. 

The Kia EV9 is due to be revealed later in 2023, with UK deliveries set to commence towards the end of the year. The large electric SUV is the next EV due to be launched under the brand’s ‘Plan S’ long-term strategy for electrification leadership.
