Kia Awards & Accolades

Setting New Standards for Success

After over 20 years in the Canadian market, we've come a long way. Juries from around the world have awarded our vehicles distinguished accolades for design, engineering, technology, safety, and overall quality, recognizing our commitment to excellence.

From our humble beginnings to over a million cars sold in Canada, we've challenged the status quo time and time again, continually innovating and setting new standards for success. While we're extremely proud of all the awards we've earned, for us the real reward is knowing we've improved the day-to-day lives of Canadians who've put their trust in us.
