Kia awarded three design prizes at 2014 Paris Motor Show

Kia Motors was among the biggest winners at the Automotive Brand Contest 2014, an annual international design competition run by the German Design Council for automotive brands. The independent jury for the awards picked Kia as the winner in three categories.

The Kia design team, led by Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Designer of Kia Motors Corporation and Hyundai Motor Group, won the 'Team of the Year' title for its work across three continents. Kia Motors has design centers in Korea, California and Germany.

Two prizes were also awarded to Kia vehicles. The Kia Provo, a sporty B-segment concept car unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, was named 'Best of Best' in the Concepts category, while the second generation of the cult compact SUV, the Kia Soul, was distinguished as 'Winner' in the Exterior Volume Brand category. The award presentation takes place tonight at the Paris Motor Show, which opens its doors to the public on October 4.
