Kia Sorento and Kia K5 Semifinalists for 2021 WCOTY

Thursday, March 18th, 2021


When the new generation models for the 2021 Kia Sorento and 2021 Kia K5 were first being talked up by Kia Motors, there was no holding back. All the highlights about the Kia Sorento, and all the performance of the Kia K5 was taking up the spotlight near the end of 2020. Fast-forward to 2021, and there is no stopping them. In recent years, Kia Motors can’t be beat. Whenever a new model is released, like the award-winning Kia Stinger, or ever-popular Kia Telluride, the accolades stack up fast. In February 2021, the Kia K5 and Sorento won Best Cars of 2021 by Autotrader, and just a month later, another award goes to the very same models. This time, it’s the honor of landing in the Top 10 for this year’s World Car of the Year (WCOTY) Awards.

WCOTY, not to be confused with NACTOY (North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year), a competition Kia Motors also performs well in, has been going on for 17 years. Held to recognize, reward and inspire excellence, leadership, and innovation within the auto industry on a global scale, WCOTY is one of many sought after lists. Once again entering the semi-finals, Kia Motors gets one step closer to the winner’s circle with the all-new Kia Sorento and Kia K5.
