Kia has triumphed again in the Red Dot Awards with another triple design win.

The Optima Sportswagon, hybrid crossover Niro and the all-new Rio won in their respective categories.

The Optima Sportswagon won the competition’s highest ‘Best of the Best’ distinction for ground-breaking design, while the Niro received praise for its attention to detail.

The all-new Rio also sees distinct changes to its profile, offering buyers a bold new design and a modern, efficiently packaged cabin with the latest infotainment and safety technologies.

The Kia Niro marries the practical advantages and aesthetic appeal of a compact crossover with a sleek appearance, differentiating it from more conservatively designed hybrid models, and giving the car a unique presence as the world’s first hybrid crossover.
