KIA CEE'D CROWNED BEST USED CAR IN 2017 CARBUYER AWARDS
The Kia cee'd has been announced as Carbuyer's 'Best Used Car' after overcoming tough competition for the second year in succession. The cee'd range impressed with its excellent value for money, practicality, standard levels of equipment, build quality and reliability.
Kia's industry leading seven year warranty was a strong contributing factor to the cee'd range's victory. The warranty extension is available on the entire Kia range, when purchasing a vehicle up to 18 months old from the Kia Approved Used network. The top up restores the warranty to its original amount of seven years, effectively allowing over eight years of worry-free motoring.
Editor of Carbuyer, Stuart Milne commented on the win. "The Kia cee'd is a great-value new car, but it's harder to buy a nearly new car of better quality on the used market. It's practical, well built, spacious and efficient and represents superb value secondhand. And you'll be safe in the knowledge that you'll still be protected by the balance of Kia's industry-leading seven-year warranty."
Paul Philpott, CEO and President of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd. gave his feelings: "The Kia cee'd is an integral and important part of Kia in the UK, and indeed across Europe. It answers the needs of many people, delivering great value for money, safety, high levels of equipment and striking looks. This win is testament to how good a proposition our cee'd range is to customers. This win will also mean a great deal to all the dealers in our national network, who all work incredibly hard to exceed our customers' needs, whether that be with new or used vehicles."
Last year the Kia cee'd received an update which gave the range a competitive edge. With world-class new powertrains, a sporty new GT-Line trim level and major additions to electronic driver aids and connected car systems, the new version of Kia's European mid-sized hatchback continues to impress and build on the strengths which has already attracted more than a million buyers.
