About the World Car of the Year Awards

Inaugurated in 2003 and formally launched the following year, the WCOTY awards were created to “reflect the reality of the global marketplace, as well as to recognize, reward, and inspire excellence, leadership, and innovation in a rapidly changing automotive industry.” Normally announced during the New York International Auto Show, this year’s award-winners were revealed through remote means instead.

The Kia Brand’s WCOTY Award Winners

Being Kia dealers serving Sacramento, CA and surrounding areas, we’re thrilled to tell you that two Kia models earned coveted WCOTY awards for 2020. Those vehicles are the versatile and equally striking Kia Telluride and the ever-popular Kia Soul.

The Kia Telluride won the top prize, which is the prestigious title of World Car of the Year. To earn that title, the Kia Telluride had to beat some stiff competition. When all factors were considered by the 86 global journalists who served as jurors for this year’s awards, the Kia Telluride finished ahead of its worthy competitors.

Not to be outdone, the Kia Soul EV laid claim to the title of World Urban Car. Once you see how well-equipped the Kia Soul EV is and experience how easy the vehicle is to maneuver on crowded city streets, you’ll realize why the automobile earned its crown as the 2020 World Urban Car.
