Mar 23, 2020

  • Kia Sportage mild-hybrid crowned Best Medium SUV
  • Sportage praised for design, equipment and financial appeal

Having held top spot as Kia Motors (UK) Limited’s number one best-selling model for seven years, the Kia Sportage has continued to see success. The Sportage with 48v mild-hybrid technology has been awarded Best Medium SUV in the Business Motoring Awards 2020.

The Business Motoring Awards celebrates the businesses and cars that best serve the SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) market and is judged by an independent jury of experts involved in the fleet and SME markets.

In the Best Medium SUV category, the Sportage mild-hybrid was crowned overall winner for its advanced technology and award winning design, combined with desirable lower emissions from its hybrid powertrain. The Sportage mild-hybrid has been engineered to deliver greater efficiency from internal combustion engines on the road by using electric power delivered and recuperated seamlessly.

Chris Wright, Managing Editor at Business Car Manager, said: “This Kia has established a reputation as the definitive SUV – a brilliant design, incredibly well equipped and economical to operate. Now available with mild hybrid technology bringing CO2 levels down, it is a car which has real financial appeal for the Company Car driver. Its timeless style manifests itself in exceptional residual values which have stayed strong since its launch.”

Commenting on the win, John Hargreaves, General Manager of Fleet and Remarketing at Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, said: “As we move further towards electrification in the automotive market, models such as the Sportage mild-hybrid prove that there is no need to compromise when it comes to eco-cars. The mild-hybrid version of the Sportage still retains the style, technology and performance of the petrol engine model, but with added financial and environmental benefits.”
