Kia has received yet more recognition and won a tightly contested award in this years’ Diesel Car and Eco Car Awards, with the all-new Kia Niro hybrid crossover winning best hybrid vehicle and the Kia cee’d and Sportage models coming well within the top 50 cars available in the UK, concluded by the panel of judges of Diesel Car and Eco Car – all of which models are available at West End Garage – Surrey & Berkshire’s number 1 Kia Dealer.

The all-new Niro was launched in August 2016 and presents customers with the high efficiency and low running costs of a petrol-electric car with the practicality and desirability of a stylish compact crossover. The judges were impressed by the vehicle’s efficiency and customer-friendly styling and practicality.

Ian Robertson, Editor and Publisher of Diesel Car and Eco Car commented, “Some hybrids have often come under fire for being awkwardly styled, but not so the Kia Niro, which embraces the booming crossover trend, but still offers wallet-friendly running costs. Looking just as stylish as the larger Sportage SUV, the Niro can return over 70mpg and offer all the space a family should need. It might be high-tech, but its comprehensive seven-year warranty will reassure owners that this trend setting Kia is built to last.”

Last years’ car of the year for Diesel Car, the Kia Sportage (also available to test drive at West End Garage) came in at a very respectable number three overall in the 2017 awards.

“Last year’s winner can hold its head high, smashing sales all targets for Kia and still being rated as one of the best medium SUVs money can buy. The latest Sportage is the biggest yet, with plenty of space for five people and their luggage. On the road, the 1.7- and 2.0-litre diesel engines are refined, easy to drive and free from body roll in the corners, making it a relaxing place for passengers. That awesome 7 -year warranty and an impressive list of standard equipment make the Sportage an even more compelling buy.” Continued the Editor and Publisher of Diesel Car and Eco Car.

Finally, it was the Kia cee’d which also received highly positive recognition from the judges. It also impressed judges with its sharp and handsome looks, generous equipment levels, good road manners & combined economy.

Damian Dunne,  Dealer Principal  at WEST END GARAGE commented: “This is once again great recognition for not only the Kia Niro, but also for the Ceed and Sportage. Come in and try any one of our fantastic Kia vehicles – whether you fancy a nippy run-around like our all New Picanto through to one of our sturdy SUV Sorento’s we look forward to seeing you”.
