Move over Crossovers, there’s a winner in town.
It’s the car that has the future written all over it and now, the all-new Kia Niro has won the ‘Best Crossover’ award in the UK Car of the Year (UKCOTY) Awards 2023.
The UK’s most well-respected and professional panel of motoring journalists couldn’t help but be bowled over by the Niro’s raft of winning attributes, topping the popular crossover class which, just so happens to be one of the most competitive segments in the UK.
The Niro’s range of powertrains, striking aesthetics and impressive value for money make it a winner in every sense.
UKCOTY judge, Alex Grant commented: “The new Niro builds on the success of the very popular first-generation car, combining the familiar choice of electrified powertrains and spacious interior with a much-needed step up in aesthetics.”
The award jurors came to the same conclusion that the all-new Niro was a thoroughly impressive model which picks up where its revolutionary predecessor left off, albeit making great strides forward in design and refinement. Having won its category, the all-new Niro is put forward for the overall ‘UK Car of the Year 2023’ Award, which will be announced in March.
President and CEO of Kia UK Limited, Paul Philpott, commented: “The all-new Niro has helped ensure we start 2023 as strongly as possible in the UK, and is currently making up almost 30 per cent of all our sales. Whilst the all-new Niro has only been available since Q3 last year, it has received numerous award wins, glowing editorial review and excellent reaction from customers. Now, with its newest accolade of ‘Best Crossover’, awarded by the UK Car of the Year jurors, our 191 dealer partners have yet another respected badge of recognition when discussing the Niro with our valued customers.”
Available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicle, the all-new Niro gives maximum choice to customers looking to make the transition to electric motoring. A simple three-tier selection structure – each model is available in ‘2’, ‘3’ or ‘4’ grades – ensures the Niro is equipped to suit a broad range of needs and preferences.
The all-new Kia Niro.
Make way for even more wonderful.
