Kia Carens has won the Indian Car of the Year 2023 award.

The ICOTY (Indian Car of the Year) awards, held under the aegis of the Automotive Journalists Association of India (AJAI), are the most coveted automotive awards in India and are often referred to as the Oscars of the Indian automotive industry. The award is an expert and independent judgment of the best new Car. The highly experienced jury members are responsible for selecting a single decisive winner. The criteria like price, fuel efficiency, styling, comfort, safety, performance, practicality, technical innovation, value for money, and suitability for Indian driving conditions are significant factors considered while deciding on the winner.

“India is one of the most important markets for Kia, as the Indian market has grown at an unprecedented rate. Kia has become one of the fastest-growing automotive brands in the Indian market. To be recognized by the Indian Car of the Year jury is a significant achievement for the whole Kia family,” said Ho Sung Song, President, and CEO, of Kia Corporation. “The Kia Carens highlights our commitment to offering tailor-made family vehicles to meet Indian customers’ needs. The Kia EV6 embodies our vision to pave the road for electrified mobility solutions for India. We will continue our efforts to contribute to the future of mobility for customers in India and around the world.”

“We are thankful to the esteemed ICOTY jury members for this honor. This is a well-deserved recognition for the Kia brand and speaks volumes for our technological prowess, capabilities, and understanding of the Indian market,” said Tae-Jin Park, Managing Director, and CEO, of Kia India. “It reflects our successful journey in India and a great motivation to keep working and contributing towards an inspiring tomorrow.”
