As the 2023 World Car Awards contest gears up, Hyundai IONIQ 6 has been named among the top three finalists across three categories in the 2023 World Car Awards, just as two Kia models made the top three finalist in two categories for the 2023.
IONIQ 6 is based on the same Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) as the 2022 World Car of the Year, IONIQ 5, and has attracted a hugely positive response since it was unveiled last year.
IONIQ 6 has also won numerous prestigious awards during the past few months as it’s been named ‘Saloon of the Year’ at 2023 GQ Car Awards and ‘New Car of the Year’ hosted by Le Guide de l’auto. Plus, it achieved a five-star safety rating and ‘Best in Class’ selection in the ‘Large Family Car’ category from Euro NCAP.
While Kia Niro earned a position among the top three finalists for the World Car of the Year category, Kia EV6 GT is named a finalist in the World Performance Car category.
The Niro, a contender for the prestigious title of the World Car of the Year award, brings a new level of sustainable mobility with its innovative features and user-friendly technology. The Kia Niro’s potential win this year would be another significant accomplishment for the Kia brand in the same category as the Kia Telluride’s victory in 2020.
The World Car Awards is an annual event that involves 100 international jurors from 32 countries as they test-drive and vote on a field of eligible vehicles.
The winners will be announced live at an awards ceremony during the 2023 New York International Auto Show on April 5, 2023. This is the 18th year of the World Car Awards’ partnership with the New York International Auto Show.
