Double Win for Kia Niro at Car Dealer Used Car of the Year Awards
Kia Niro takes home the overall ‘Used Car of the Year’ award
Niro also takes home ‘Used SUV of the Year’
The hybrid model was commended for its efficiency and styling
Kia also highly commended for ‘Manufacturer Used Car Scheme of the Year’
The Kia Niro has been named ‘Used Car of the Year’ and ‘Used SUV of the Year’ at the Car Dealer Used Car of the Year Awards 2019.
The judges commended the Niro on delivering the high efficiency and low running costs of a petrol-electric car with the style, practicality and desirability of a compact crossover. As well as easy maintenance and clever packaging, the Niro like all Kia models comes with the industry leading seven-year warranty.
James Baggott, founder of Car Dealer Magazine, said: ‘Kia is a brand that likes to innovate, whether that’s by the introduction of exciting new models or the launch of attention-grabbing marketing initiatives such as its famous seven-year warranty. It has really hit the sweet spot with the Niro which is performing exceptionally well in the used car market. Very well done to Kia and its efficient and spacious Niro.’
John Hargreaves, General Manager for Fleet and Remarketing at Kia Motors UK (Ltd) commented on the awards: ‘We are delighted the Niro has been won not only its category but also the overall Used Car of the Year title. The Niro offers a compelling option to customers in the used car market thanks to its practicality and low running costs.’
In addition, Kia was also highly commended within the category ‘Manufacturer Used Car Scheme of the Year’. Having won the award three times previously at the Car Dealer Used Car Awards, Kia’s Approved Used car scheme is widely recognised across the industry as one of the best. It includes a warranty that is topped back to the full seven years, one year’s free roadside assistance, a guaranteed a full service history and a 60-day exchange policy.
