NK Motor Group is delighted to announce that Kia has been named ‘Best Manufacturer’ at the 2023 Autocar Awards, following a record-breaking 2022 and start to 2023.

Celebrated at a unique ceremony at the Silverstone Wing, the Autocar Awards celebrate the best of the automotive world, as well as recogning individual excellence throughout the industry. Autocar is widely regarded as the world’s oldest car magazine.

Available to buy today from NK Motor Group both the all-new Niro and Sportage continue to cement themselves as class leaders. Together, they position Kia as the most popular brand for Compact SUVs in the UK, with both models regularly featuring in the UK top 10 best-sellers list.

Taking the lead, Kia’s fully electric line-up – the Kia EV6, all-new Niro EV and Soul EV –receives regular awards and praise from independent reviews and customers alike. Kia’s broad model line-up ranges from the smallest city car, the Picanto, to a seven-seat large SUV, the Sorento, bringing one of the widest and most versatile product ranges available from any brand.

Autocar praised not only Kia’s award-winning products but also the brand’s customer experience quality, first-class ratings and selection of high-quality convenience services and apps.

Mark Tisshaw, Editor of Autocar, commented: “It seems like a very long time since we have thought of Kia as ‘that funny budget car brand from Korea’. What a transformation Kia has been through. Very few brands of Kia’s size can boast product lines half as up to-date. Both the totemic EV6 and Sorento family SUV were launched in 2021, and still feel box fresh. The sheer confidence exuded by the design of the Niro and Sportage was what really impressed and made it so obvious that this year’s Best Manufacturer award could go nowhere else.”
