Kia Rondo and Soul Pile Up the Accolades November 1st, 2010

Adding to Kia Motors’ growing award shelf, the Kia Rondo (known as Carens in some markets) and Soul have recently won awards in Australia and the UK respectively.

In Australia, an expert panel of Wheels Magazine judges have given a Gold Star Car award to the Kia Rondo EX for the second consecutive year! In the People-Mover segment, Rondo beat out the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso HDI, Subaru Exiga 2.5i, Nissan Dualis_2 ST and the Mitsubishi Grandis VRX. The article cites several reasons for Rondo’s victory, not the least of which are value, fuel economy and Kia’s “industry leading” five-year warranty.

In the UK, the Kia Soul is turning heads yet again as Auto Express Magazine recently announced it as the winner of their Crossover Comparison Road Test, finishing above entries from Toyota, Nissan and Skoda. We know Soul oozes style and Auto Express UK recognized that by citing its distinctive look as a primary reason for the victory. They also listed Soul’s great value, features and warranty as key factors. With this latest designation, Soul has now received over 15 separate global awards in just its second year of production! With accolades like this, there’s no stopping this stylish crossover.
