Kia Motors Wracking up Awards in April

Tuesday, April 16th, 2019


The first-quarter of 2019 has just passed us and we’re already scratching our way through the rest of the year. One automaker, Kia Motors, shows no sign of slowing down as they continue to over-perform. With the automaker releasing the 2020 Kia Telluride in March 2019, their largest SUV ever, their sales were spearheaded by the Kia Telluride and landed Kia Motors their best first quarter performance for Kia Motors since 2016. It’s not the only vehicle consumers love. The Kia Stinger is still making rounds, winning a first-ever award from J.D. Power, and the Niro PHEV won a Best New Car Award.

Kia Stinger and J.D. Power

When someone says “first-ever”, one could imagine that this means the occasion was so great, it needed its own recognition and celebration. So when a company like J.D. Power holds their first-ever “Engineering Award for the Highest Rated All-New Vehicle”, there’s clearly something important brewing in the auto industry. The J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest-Rated All-New Vehicle combines the results of two well-known J.D. Power studies that Kia Motors continues to rank highly on. Kia Motors was the leading auto brand for the 2018 Initial Quality Study (IQS), and their Kia Stinger won the Compact Premium Car segment for the 2018 J.D. Power APEAL Study.
