The Kia Optima and the Kia Sedona have done it again! It was announced in mid-November that these two vehicles were honored by Road & Travel Magazine in conjunction with the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Want to know more about the awards? Keep reading for more information.

This is the 20th Anniversary of the “Of the Year” awards. The 2016 Kia Optima was named as the International Car of the Year siting its “aggressive design, long list of available features, impressive powertrain options and great value.” The 2016 Kia Sorento was named the international SUV of the Year. Road & Travel Magazine praised the Kia Sorento for “combination of premium interior amenities, extensive safety features and all-wheel drive capability”. This is the fourth consecutive year that a Kia vehicle has been honored as the International Car of the Year.  The Kia K900 luxury sedan was honored in 2015, the Cadenza premium sedan in 2014, and the previous-generation Optima in 2013.

“The Optima and Sorento are two of Kia’s best-selling vehicles and both were instrumental in the transformation of the brand,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA.  “To win the prestigious ICOTY award four years in a row, with two models winning their categories this year, is a clear indication that our products continue to offer a world-class balance of design, amenities, craftsmanship, safety and value for today’s savvy consumers.”
