Kia Named ‘Manufacturer of The Year’ At 2022 Topgear.Com Awards
Korean firm commended for its ‘remarkable’ year after key launches
- All-new Sportage, all-new Niro, and flagship EV6 GT contribute to Kia’s changed perceptions
Lloyd Kia is delighted to announce that Kia has been named ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the 2022 TopGear.com Awards.
Kia has launched several major models in the UK this year, notably the all-new Sportage and all-new Niro. These two cars are Kia’s most popular in the nation, and available to purchase or test drive at Lloyd Kia. Both cars offer major updates over their predecessors, including striking ‘opposites united’ design, technology and sustainability, including the use of recycled materials throughout the interior.
Jack Rix, Editor of BBC Top Gear Magazine, commented: “Kia’s recent form is remarkable. Despite gale force headwinds, the upward trajectory simply shows no sign of abating. In fact, it’s getting braver. The latest Sportage is a superior family crossover to the genre-defining Nissan Qashqai, the new Niro looks a bit bonkers, and offers hybrid or electric versions and Kia seems to be sticking the landing when it comes to the e-transition. The EV6 GT offers a 577bhp version with tyre-delaminating drift mode to tickle our caveman brain’s pickle.”
The all-new Sportage is available with several economical electrified powertrains, with prices starting from £27,800 for the entry-level model. The all-new Niro, available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully-electric car, starts at 28,295.
