Winning Car of the Year is a prestigious accomplishment. However, what makes it more prestigious is when not one, but two of your vehicles win International Car of the Year awards.

According to a Kia press release, the 2016 Kia Optima and Sorento both won International Car of the Year awards from Road and Travel Magazine.

The International Car of the Year titles were handed out by Road and Travel Magazine, who grants the title to vehicles that possess features and designs that really connect with consumers.

Two Kia vehicles, the 2016 Optima and the 2016 Sorento, received the title for their excellent designs and their innovative features.

“We’ve never had one brand win this award four years in a row, but Kia has done it.  It goes to show just how exceptional the new Kia models are, providing clear direction of where the Kia brand is headed,” said Courtney Caldwell, editor-in-chief of Road & Travel Magazine.  “We are near speechless at the level of progress the Kia brand has made in spite of the stiff competition.  It is without a doubt the brand that gets the most ‘wows’ from our staff and is truly an industry success story that we can relate to in many ways.”

When it comes to awards, the new Kia lineup just can’t be beat!
