Kia K900 Sets Record-high Score In Autopacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards
"We are honored that four of our world-class vehicles have earned AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards, affirming Kia's on-going commitment to design, craftsmanship and the ownership experience," said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. "While Cadenza, K900, Soul and Sportage each have their own personalities, together they represent the collective strength of the entire Kia model line. We're especially proud of K900's recognition as Kia continues to move upmarket and compete with long-standing luxury brands."
AutoPacific's VSAs identify the most satisfying vehicles for sale in the U.S. market and assist new car buyers in making informed vehicle purchase decisions. The results are based on responses to over 66,000 surveys completed by owners of new, model year 2015 vehicles. The survey measures owner satisfaction through 50 separate attributes ranging from interior comfort and convenience to fuel economy and performance.
