Kia Cee’d SW Named “Best Estate” Car For 2013

The Kia Cee’d Sporty Wagon has been named “Best Estate Car” by Diesel Car magazine in their annual “Car Of The Year” issue.

The Cee’d Sporty Wagon has won the 2013 award thanks to its great combination of space, functionality, performance, premium design and 7-year warranty.

That was more than enough to convince the juros of the Diesel Car magazine that the cee’d was deserving of the award.

This year, the ceed SW was in the mix with some stiff competition, including the likes of the Mazda 6 Tourer and Jaguar XF Sportbrake.


Kia Rio, Sorento

Kia did particularly well in the Diesel car magazine awards, with the Sorento receiving high commendations in the mainstream 4×4 class.

The Rio also received a commendation in the small car class, too.

Diesel Car is the top selling magazine devoted to diesel, alternative fuel, and eco-friendly vehicles, and is currently in its 25th year of publication.

  1. It is beyond me why all manufacturers are so convinced that Americans are against buying station wagons, especially ones with diesel engines. A Kia Optima wagon with a diesel would, in my opinion, sell like the proverbial hostcakes. Volkswagen sells every diesel Jetta wagon, I believe at list price, that makes it here. The 1986 Ford Taurus probably saved the company from going under, and I believe wagons (better looking) outsold sedans. Matter of fact, there were usually so many white station wagons in parking lots one had a hard time finding one’s own car. I know; I owned one.

  2. Forte sales will pick up as soon as Kia starts delivering larger number of cars to their dealers.

    As far I’ve seen, the Forte sedan has received rave reviews from major automobile magzs.
