President and CEO of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, Paul Philpott said: “These wins for Kia are especially important to us as they’re voted for by our customers, people who live with our vehicles day to day.”


He added: “It’s also humbling to see a range of our vehicles praised for important and relevant ownership elements like infotainment and practicality.

The Kia Sportage was also widely recognised and came second in all Infotainment, Connectivity and Electrics categories. The Kia Ceed followed closely behind, coming third in the Infotainment category.


Ellena Frost, Marketing Executive for Sandicliffe Kia shared: “Kia topping 5 classes at this year’s Auto Express Driver Power Survey is a huge testament to the work that goes on in the background in design and in production. We really do have an amazing group of people behind this brand and they all seem to know exactly what our customers are looking for. Well done, Kia!”

Also commenting on Kia’s impressive performance was Stuart Milne, Executive Editor of Auto Express: “The Kia Sorento may have topped this year’s Driver Power poll, but it’s by no means the only success story for the brand – hugely impressive wins in five classes proves it really understands what its customers want. The reasons for the five class wins are many and varied, but across the board, these models were praised for their fantastic infotainment systems, low running costs and how they’re just so easy to live with.”
