2019 Red Dot Awards: Another triple triumph for Kia design

The new third-generation Kia has recorded a triple triumph at the international Red Dot Awards. Following the launch of the Kia Ceed now on-sale across Europe, the three new body styles within the range: Kia Ceed Sportswagon, ProCeed and the five-door Ceed Hatchback have each received a prestigious Red Dot Award for design.


This triple win in a world-renowned design competition represents the second consecutive design award hat-trick for Kia Motors after three iF Design awards earlier this year. The latest achievement underscores the Korean manufacturer's reputation for first-class award-winning design and increases Kia’s total to 24 Red Dot wins for its vehicle designs since its first Red Dot Award in 2009, with the Kia Soul.


Companies from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products into the awards scheme this year. Designs were judged by a panel comprised of 40 expert independent designers, design professors and journalists from around the world. The official presentation will take place on July 8, 2019 in Essen, Germany at the Aalto Theatre.
