5 Amazing Wins For Kia
Over the last month or so Kia picked up a number of fantastic awards at various ceremonies, with their used car programme, the all-new Picanto, Niro and Optima all picking up prestigious titles.
Recognition For Kia’s Used Car Programme
Launched in 2010, and with over 45,000 used approved cars sold, the multi-award winning programme has been a huge success amongst the dealer network as well as customers. The programme gives used Kia buyers the same peace of mind as those buying new, with all cars having the industry-leading warranty reinstated at seven years, demonstrating the high standard and confidence that Kia has in the reliability, quality and preparation of all its nearly new Kia Approved cars.
This all contributed to the judges’ decision to recognise Kia’s used car programme at the Car Dealer Used Car awards for the third successive year.
Double Win For The All-New Picanto
According to Carbuyer if you’re looking for a brand new car for under £150 a month then the third-generation Kia Picanto should be the choice you make with the judges noting its practicality, low running costs, value for money and impressive technology as some of the key benefits of the city car. Features in the Picanto 2, which is currently available from Pentagon Kia for only £139 a month, include smart 14 inch alloys, bluetooth with music streaming, air conditioning and electric windows.
At this year’s Car Tech Awards a panel of experts from Carbuyer and Alphr agreed that the all-new Kia Picanto has the most user-friendly technology available on the market today. The 7-inch touchscreen found in the 3 and GT-Line S trims significantly contributed to the car claiming this award. Its Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Google Maps integration was particularly noted for its ease of use compared to other models.
By 2020 Kia aims to reduce the average CO2 emissions of its entire range by 25% and its PHEV range is set to play a vital role in achieving this. For the second year running at the Next Green Car Awards the Large Family Car Segment prize was won by the Kia Optima PHEV with the Niro PHEV winning the Crossover segment for the first time. The Picanto was also shortlisted in the City Car category as well.
The Next Green Car Awards recognise the very best green cars that are currently and soon-to-be available. The judging is based on a number of factors, but is focused on the Next Green Car (NGC) rating, based upon real-world emissions data. This ultimately aids the judges in identifying the greenest models available.
