Kia is a triple threat in competition for the annual World Car Awards, now under deliberation, with the candidates spanning three award categories. The Kia Niro is a finalist for overall World Car of the Year honors, while the electrified Niro EV is similarly a finalist for World Electric Vehicle of the Year. And for those who like to drive very quickly, the Kia EV6 GT, with up to 567 horsepower under your foot, is a contender for World Performance Car honors.
The World Car Awards were established 19 years ago, and are bestowed by a jury of 100 journalists, representing 32 nations, who drive and evaluate the candidates. The awards are scheduled to be announced at this year’s New York International Auto Show on April 5th.
