e-Niro and Sorento are best for business
Added: 29 January 2020
Both the Kia e-Niro and Sorento picked up prizes at the Company Car Today 100 Awards 2020.
The e-Niro was named Electric Car of the Year, while the Sorento was ranked Large SUV of the Year.
The all-electric e-Niro and luxurious Sorento topped their respective categories, in which vehicles were rated on 12 key factors, including emissions, overall price, running costs, company car tax, practicality, desirability and all-round driving experience.
The CCT100 is Company Car Today’s definitive list of the top hundred vehicles that can best fulfil business car requirements.
Company Car Today editor Paul Barker said: “Kia has taken a lead in the most important company car sector of 2020, with electric vehicles on the verge of a series breakthrough thanks to the company car tax changes coming in April.
“The range, practicality, and all-round excellence of the e-Niro makes it a pioneer of the segment and brings EVs into the mainstream.”
The zero emissions e-Niro has a fantastic 282-mile driving range from a single charge. It was also commended for its abundance of interior space and competitive pricing.
“Meanwhile,” added Barker, “the Sorento gave Kia a double Company Car Today CCT100 Awards success, combining sensible running costs and off-road style to offer a great all-round large off-roader. It’s capable, well-priced and good to drive.”
The Sorento is the largest model in Kia’s line-up, boasting many safety features: Trailer Stability Assist, Hill-start Assist Control, Downhill Brake Control, and intelligent all-wheel-drive. The award-winning Sorento is also equipped with a maximum Five-Star rating in Euro-NCAP safety tests.
John Hargreaves, General Manager of Fleet and Remarketing at Kia Motors (UK) commented: “It’s fantastic to see Kia top not one, but two, distinctly competitive categories in this year’s awards.
“Both the SUV and EV markets are continually expanding, which makes the double win even more impressive.”
