The 2021 Kia Sorento took home the most votes for the Large SUV category in this year’s Golden Steering Award competition. The Sorento beat out the Aston Martin DBX and BMW X6, two premium members of the competition, to take home the top prize.  

According to The Auto Channel, when asked about this Kia model’s win, Tom Drechsler, the head of AUTO BILD, stated “The predecessor was already good, but the new Sorento is an evolution. It now drives just as smoothly as it looks. There’s plenty of space, smart interior details, voice control, safety features – things that can be enjoyed everywhere. And that’s not just my opinion, but also that of the jury. Congratulations on a very well-deserved Goldenes Lenkrad 2020!”
