Kia Sorento wins iF Design Award
With all of the attention the 2016 Kia Sorento has been getting lately, it is no surprise to us at Carriage Kia that the flagship SUV is already bringing home awards. Just recently the Sorento was awarded the prestigious “iF Design Award.” The 2016 Kia Sorento was judged on design, degree of innovation, environmental impact, and safety.
The iF product design award began in 1953 and has become one of the world’s most important prizes for excellence in design. Every year since 2010 a Kia vehicle has been awarded the iF Design Award (the Venga, Sportage, Optima, pro_cee’d, and Soul), but this is the first time for the Sorento. It won the award in the “Automobiles/Vehicles/Bikes” category.
“I am very proud of this award for the Kia Sorento because it is recognition of the great advance in quality we have succeeded in achieving in this model,” stated President and Chief Design Officer of Kia Motors Corporation and Hyundai Motor Company, Peter Schreyer. “The Kia Sorento unites the classic poise of an SUV with a premium look and feel that is particularly tangible in the cabin. It offers the very highest design quality and excellent value for money. This is largely the achievement of our international design teams – which is also why I am so delighted with this award.”
The 2016 Kia Sorento is the perfect sized SUV for any lifestyle, with amazing versatility and practicality. The sleek, dynamic exterior design is complimented by the luxurious, comfortable interior. The 2016 Sorento is available with 5 or 7 seats and has more interior space than the model year before it. The design of the new Sorento is protected by first-rate safety features such as the Around View Monitor and a smart parking system, making it easier for your to get into those tight spaces.
