Top Diesel Award Goes to Sportage
Only recently unleashed onto the UK market, the all-new Kia Sportage has won the Diesel Car Magazine Car of the Year Award. What’s more, the Kia Sorento and the Kia c’eed were also well placed, being in the top 50 on what was a superb day for Kia, confirming the exceptional quality and competitive pricing, particularly of its diesel cars.
Naming the all-new Kia Sportage as Diesel Car Magazine’s Best Medium SUV and the Car of the Year, judges were keen to praise the Sportage’s value for money with prices starting from only £17,995 or £139 a month, especially bearing in mind the high specification, where Bluetooth with voice recognition, air conditioning, DAB radio and cruise control with speed limiter are all standard equipment, even on the entry level Sportage ‘1’. Additionally, the judges liked the dynamic handling and distinctive design – as Kia says, it is designed to WOW! And as the editor of Diesel Car added: "The Sportage won the top spot because of its generous equipment levels, keen prices and excellent road manners, which means that the Sportage leapfrogs the competition to sit at the very top of the class."
