Kia Picanto Awarded Most Popular Small Car By Honest John Website
The 2012 honestjohn.co.uk awards have voted the Kia Picanto the ‘Most popular Small Hatchback’, fending off some strong competition from both premium and mainstream brands.
The awards are not decided by a panel, or a judge, but by consumers themselves who visit the website. The Awards are determined by the number of users who search for a car’s review on the site in the year running up to the awards.
“This award shows that the value-packed Kia Picanto has captured the imagination of our users. Big car features, low running costs and a huge warranty have all contributed to it being the most popular small car on the site over the past 12 months”, comments Dan Harrison, Editor of honestjohn.co.uk.
Commenting on the award, Michael Cole, Managing Director, Kia Motors UK Limited said: “We know that honestjohn.co.uk is an important source of information for consumers visiting our showrooms so I’m delighted that Picanto has proved so popular for Honest John to have given us this award.”
“Picanto has proved popular with critics and customers alike since the latest version went on sale last June but awards from customers themselves are the highest accolade” added Cole.
Since The Honest John website was established in 2000 “Honest John” himself has answered in excess of 625,000 queries from UK motorists, who are seeking advice on selling, buying and running cars. The website receives around 1.5 million visits per month from consumers.
