- All-new model adds another major award
Kia’s multi-award winning all-new Sorento has added another major award to its resume with outright victory in the highly-competitive Carsguide Car Of The Year.
The Sorento SLi diesel left a stellar field of 10 other finalists in its wake, scoring the only unanimous decision in the 19-year history the Carsguide COTY awards.
“Kia has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years,” Carsguide Editor Richard Blackburn said. “They have lifted their interior design, they have used Australian engineers to tune their suspension for local conditions and their diesel engines are on par with some of the best for refinement.”
Already voted as International SUV of the Year by US publication Road & Travel Magazine and Best New SUV/CUV in the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada awards, the Carsguide COTY award put Sorento into elite company.
“This is an outstanding endorsement of Sorento as a model and of Kia as a brand,” Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Damien Meredith said. “It is difficult to overstate just how much this award means to Kia.
“It is another milestone on the brand growth journey that we are on in Australia.”
