The Kia Sportage has won the ‘Best Medium SUV’ category at the Business Car Awards 2023, for the second year running.
Having last year won the outright title as ‘New Company Car of the Year’ and winning its category, the fifth generation of the popular SUV once again impressed the awards judges and finished top of the class.
Martyn Collins, Editor of Business Car, said: “The Sportage offers a choice of versions, including ICE, mild, and plug-in hybrid power, all with a modern design – and they’re really good to drive. As such it’s our Medium SUV choice for another year.”
Consistently ranked as best-in-class, the Sportage is currently the sixth best-selling new car in the UK. The business-friendly and practical SUV is available in four comprehensively equipped grades – ‘2’, ‘GT-Line’, ‘3’ and ‘GT-Line S’ – with a variety of electrified powertrains and flexible options. Adding to its desirability, the family- and fleet-friendly SUV was awarded the coveted maximum five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
Business drivers will benefit from the Sportage’s efficient, economical and electrified powertrains that can deliver CO2 emissions as low as 25g/km (Sportage 1.6 T-GDi PHEV AWD), helping qualify for low Benefit-in-Kind tax bands, from eight per cent in the current financial year.
