Kia Motors Corporation has won big at the 2020 World Car Awards (WCA) with the Telluride named the 'World Car of the Year' and the Soul EV the 'World Urban Car'.

The Kia Telluride impressed the judging panel for its distinctive design and impressive practicality.

The World Car of the Year title represents another accolade for a vehicle that has garnered more than 70 awards since its introduction in 2019.

The fully electric Soul EV was named the ideal car for the city by the jury, combining zero-emission performance and impressive electric range with a compact body, bold design, and high levels of practicality.

The winners of the World Car Awards are decided by an independent international jury comprising 86 highly-experienced, well-respected automotive journalists from 24 countries around the world.

Available across North America and in many of Kia's global markets, the Kia Telluride merges a strong exterior design presence with a spacious, practical and high-quality cabin which can seat up to eight passengers.

Globally, the compact Kia Soul EV features a powerful battery-electric powertrain with a choice of 64kWh or 39.2kWh battery packs. Able to travel up to 452km on a single charge in 64kWh models, the Soul EV offers drivers greater all-electric range than many more expensive electric vehicles, making it the ideal companion, both in the urban environment and beyond city limits. A series of advanced range-increasing technologies, including regenerative braking, ensures drivers can maximise the distance on a single charge.
