By the end of 2020, Kia Motors had two vehicles it was putting all the spotlight on – the new Kia K5 sports car and Kia Sorento SUV. A new generation rendition of both vehicles, each had something to say, the Kia was more than happy to put ad spots, press releases, and plenty of promos to highlights everything coming to the lineup. We saw everything from powertrain options to safety tech for the new 2021 Kia Sorento and the crazy performance of the Kia K5 with death-defying stunt antics. Well, they got the attention they wanted, because Autotrader had just named the Kia K5 and Kia Sorento as the “Best New Cars for 2021”.

Best new car of the year is a pretty sweet title to start rocking only two months in. Getting that title from Autotrader is another huge plus for the automaker. Like many organizations out there, Autotrader conducts many reviews of all new cars and helps inform consumers currently in the market. Autotrader is also the most recognized third-party car listings brand online, constantly collecting and publishing new data on the automotive industry for new and old vehicles. Not everyone is looking for the newest, shiniest vehicle – that’s why Kia Motors has some of the best pre-owned vehicles with their Certified Kia Pre-Owned vehicle program. But we’re talking about the new Kia K5 and Kia Sorento here.

At first, it wasn’t clear whether or not the Kia Seltos, the compact SUV from Kia Motors, would have a global release following its debut. Many automakers tend to release vehicles only in their home market (South Korea for Kia) or in international markets with different regulations and standards. First released in India, then Australia, the Kia Seltos quickly became a hit overseas. So much so, the Kia Seltos came to America. The 2020 Kia Seltos has amazing features, and just the other day, Autotrader has recognized Kia Seltos and placed it on it’s “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates” list. We know with the current state of the world, many graduates are missing out on graduation, a milestone that will never come again. What better way to cheer up a college grad with a new set of wheels once people are out and about?

“Kia’s new Seltos SUV has exactly what grads will be looking for in a car that transports them to the next phase of life…Kia’s super-long warranty, low price and generous standard features make the Seltos a small SUV that can weather just about any storm. We like that all-wheel drive is standard on nearly every model and that the overall footprint is small, but the interior feels very spacious.” – Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader

To be placed on Autotrader’s “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates in 2020” list, the Kia Seltos impressed editors with its combination of elegance and upscale feel while also having a rugged feel to it that gives it a refined style like no other. Well-engineered as a sports utility vehicle, it’s not too big, but can handle a variety of lifestyles and adventures. Spacious and offering great tech options, the interior comes with reclining rear seat functionality for storing cargo, available leather-wrapped steering wheel for a little more comfort on long drives, and an available 10.25-inch high-resolution color touchscreen with an available 8-speaker Bose premium sound system.

No matter what, Kia Motors keeps gaining awards with the largest SUV to grace its lineup, the 2020 Kia Telluride. Seriously, this baby has won award-after-award. Just last week, we got news of the 2020 Kia Telluride winning the All-Stars Award from leading publication Automobile magazine. Of course, anything after winning the “Triple Crown” of Automotive Awards, earning awards from MotorTrend, Car and Driver, and winning the Utility category in the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards, is just gravy on top of some fine mashed potatoes. Most recently, Autotrader, the most recognized third-party car listings brand with the best need-to-know information when in the market for buying a new car, named the Kia Telluride the “Best New Car of 2020”. This declaration comes just a month after Autorader put the 2020 Kia Telluride on their “Best Interiors Under $50k” List.

Heralded for its powerful yet elegant exterior design, and the premium and tech-filled potential of the interior, the Kia Telluride is a bold SUC that stands out in an already crowded market full of SUVs and crossovers. How did Kia Motors manage this one? Well, it wasn’t easy.

Does the name “Autotrader” ring any bells? It should, with the current Vikings commercials airing. Two Vikings are comparing a price they paid for a sled, and then another appears in a truck or SUV and announces that they “should’ve gone with Autotrader”, as well as a nod to Kelley Blue Book. Having been in the business of the automotive industry for more than 20 years, Autotrader is like many organizations that provide consumers with trustworthy information and reviews about vehicles to buy and/or sell. Like other review sites, Autotrader also puts together “Best of” lists for consumers looking for something specific, like a really nice interior. Recently, Autotrader put together the best interiors for consumers that have a little extra money to spend, because the 2020 Kia Telluride won a 2020 Autotrader 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000 award.
