Car and Driver is one of the leading authorities consumers and enthusiasts read when it comes to automotive knowledge. Their editors test vehicles constantly to inform us of its good and bad points. When they praise a vehicle, it becomes worthy for your consideration. 

In the 2021 Editors’ Choice Awards, the editors at Car and Driver chose four Kia models on their list. The Telluride, Soul, K5, and Rio are now a part of this prestigious list. 

Car and Driver tested 400 models towards narrowing the list to a worthy few. The criteria for the 2021 Editors’ Choice Award include the results of Car and Driver’s rigorous instrumented testing, the ranking each vehicle earns within its market segment, editors’ subjective evaluations of each vehicle’s performance, value, and how well it fulfills its intended mission.

The editors cited how these four Kia models continue to demonstrate the combination of performance and value across its lineup. The Soul and Telluride are already familiar to these editors, as they were named to their annual “10Best” list recently. The Soul offers a great mix of fun, utility, and economy in a package that has satisfied owners for well over a decade. While the award-winning Telluride continues to be the most desirable vehicle in its class with its comfort, technology, and capability. 

The K5 continues to delight everyone who has driven one. The advanced design and technology are making new friends out of owners. If one wants an efficient and affordable car, look no further than the Rio, available in sedan and 5-door hatchback. 

Kia of Mankato is proud to offer these award-winning models among our lineup of great vehicles. Contact us to take home a winner today!
