At the AM Awards 2023, Kia UK Limited was once again named "Manufacturer of the Year," while the Sportage was named "Used Car of the Year," giving the company a double victory.
The prizes were determined independently by votes from AM's readers and evaluated by a panel of qualified judges. Kia received praise for both categories for its appealing model line-up, creative business plan, and superb cooperation with its dealer network.
"Kia is one of the most recognised brands in our industry," said Tim Rose, AM's editor. Our panel of judges awarded it high marks for its fantastic cars, significant technological advancements like electrification, and degree of support and collaboration with its dealer partners. Congratulations on this award for the second consecutive year!"
The AM judges, readers, and dealer partners who voted for kia were thanked by Paul Philpott, President and CEO of Kia UK Limited, for the prizes. He said, "We are happy to get this recognition and I would like to thank them. This outstanding award is a great indicator of our business practises and our cooperative relationship with our dealers. It is also a great reminder that Kia's award-winning product line up continues to be among the finest in the business and ideally tailored to the needs of their customer base.
Kia Sportage Awarded Used Car of the Year
After winning AM's desired "New Car of the Year" award in 2022, the Sportage, one of Kia's most popular models, was presented with the "Used Car of the Year" award in 2023. The Kia Sportage, now in its fifth generation, offers consumers a variety of effective powertrain options with its full hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The model has received a number of awards for its adaptability, usefulness, and dependability, all of which are backed by Kia's outstanding seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
Rose stated in response to the Sportage's victory: "The vote's results demonstrate how highly the motor retail industry values the Kia Sportage on the used car market. It's simple to comprehend why. Due to its track record of dependability and durability, the Sportage appeals to buyers of old cars. The equipment levels are excellent, and most of the models in the line-up include premium options like heated seats and keyless entry. Used automobiles under five years old will be covered by the manufacturer's guarantee thanks to Kia's renowned transferable seven-year warranty, which is a wonderful perk for potential purchasers. Congratulations to Kia!"
