Cee’d SW scoops the 2008 What Diesel Car? Estate car of the year award
The cee’d family’s accolades just keep coming. This time the cee’d SW takes the spotlight, scooping the 2008 What Diesel Car? Estate car of the year award.
A panel of 10 judges whittled down the 114 contenders to just 10 category winners. Theall-new Kia cee’d SW beat off tough competition from 18 other models in the category, including the Ford Mondeo and Skoda Octavia estates, to conquer one of the most hotly contended sectors.
It is the cee’d SW’s practicality, styling and value for money that meant it took the top spot, with up to 1664 litres of luggage space, a starting price of just Ł13,195 and an industry leading seven year warranty.
Ian Robertson, Editor of What Diesel Magazine, commented “The cee’d SW is great value for money, backed up with an unbeatable warranty, and is stylish and practical. What more could you want from an estate car?”
Paul Philpott, Managing Director of Kia Motors UK Ltd, stated: “I am thrilled that cee’d SW has won this impressive award. Having been in the market place for less than a year I am certain that the estate can only continue to positively affirm people’s attitudes towards Kia. [Source: kia UK]
