The trio of victories adds to Kia’s continuing success, with the brand having now won a remarkable 21 Red Dot Awards since the Kia Soul first took victory in 2009. These latest awards follow Kia’s triple iF Design Award win earlier in 2018.

“Our global design team can be incredibly proud of their latest triple triumph. It highlights Kia’s passion for design quality and ingenuity, which has once again been lauded by a panel of international design experts,” says Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer of Kia Motors Corporation. “Winning the ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best’ for the fourth time is truly exceptional. With its modern take on the classic Gran Turismo style, the Kia Stinger is further proof of Kia’s high design standards.”

The Stinger, designed at Kia’s European design center in Frankfurt, Germany, marries classic Gran Turismo design with a spacious and cosseting interior. Taking inspiration from the grand tourers of the 1970s, the Stinger features elegant fastback proportions and a muscular ‘coke bottle’ shape down its flanks, highlighting the car’s rear-wheel biased power delivery.

Also designed in Frankfurt, the Stonic, Kia’s debut compact crossover, offers a striking and bold exterior design, combined with an elevated seating position and practical SUV format. It is the most colorful Kia ever made, offering buyers a wide choice of two-tone paint combinations and interior colors.

The third generation of the Kia Picanto – Kia’s smallest car – brings a youthful and energetic character to the A-segment. It boasts a distinctive new design and a high-quality, high-tech cabin, with huge potential for customization. Despite its compact dimensions, the Picanto’s intelligent design makes it one of the most spacious cars in its class.
