AutoPacific 2017 Ideal Vehicle Award

AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Award is based on over 54,000 responses from owners of new model year 2016 and 2017 vehicles following the first 90 days of ownership. The nation-wide survey focuses on 15 key categories owners would prefer to change in their vehicle, including power and acceleration, interior storage, technology features, safety systems, and ride and handling. Vehicles that received the fewest requested changes from their owners were named winners of the award.  

“We’re honored to hear that the Sportage has earned AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Award and that we are succeeding in our mission to provide our customers with world-class products,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America.  “The fourth-generation Sportage is the best iteration of our esteemed nameplate, now with a stellar combination of sharp design, clever utility and advanced safety features.”
