The Kia cee’d trophy cabinet is starting to creak! The European designed and built Kia has collected another two top awards. The cee’d took the coveted Green Award in the Practical Caravan Towcar Awards 2007 and the title of Best Hatchback in the What Diesel Car? Awards.

The Towcar Awards 2007 are a collaboration between Practical Caravan, What Car? and the Camping and Caravanning Club. They tested fifty cars and placed the cee’d at the top of the tree for being the most environmentally friendly package, saying that the cee’d was the car that ‘best blends towing ability with keen economy and low emissions’. The cee’d ‘impressed judges’ adding that it was ‘well built and well finished.’

The What Diesel Car? award was unveiled in the latest issue of the specialist magazine which placed the Golf as runner up. Of the Kia cee’d, What Diesel Car? said: ‘An athletic step forward from Kia sends a clear message to Ford, Vauxhall and Renault: game, set and hatch – Kia is premier cee’d.’

These two new awards join the Autocar Award for ‘Idea of the Year’, praising the cee’d and its seven year warranty and two awards from the Industry of Transport Management for Manufacturer of the Year and Warranty of the Year.

Paul Philpott, Managing Director Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, said, ‘The Kia cee’d continues to be a success story in its own right. Two more awards underline the design, quality, engineering, style and the substance of the cee’d and the seven year warranty shows our faith in the car. The Green Award is particularly pleasing as the 1.6-litre diesel engine is entirely Kia designed and built. Beating all comers to the Best Hatchback title simply shows our determination to take this brand to new heights.’
