The Kia Sportage has not only won CarBuyer's 'Best 4x4' award but also the accolade of 'Car of the Year 2011'.
With judges focusing on running costs, safety, economy, performance, reliability and comfort, the team picked the best cars across 17 buyer focused categories - and named a grand champion - the Kia Sportage - CarBuyer Car of the Year.
Dan Strong Editor of CarBuyer said: "The Kia Sportage is a landmark car - because it shows off exactly what the customer-focused firm is capable of. With its seven-year warranty, good looks and capable diesel engine range, it's a vehicle you can choose with your head and your heart."
