“We are extremely proud of the red dot awards for the new Kia Optima and Sportage. They are a great acknowledgement of the hard work of our international design teams and an endorsement of our design strategy,” says Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer, Kia Motors Corporation.

“Naturally, we are particularly thrilled about the ‘best of the best’ award for our new sedan.
