(MANILA)- The Philippine motoring’s most sought-after performance results were recently revealed and Kia took home two notable awards for Kia Sorento and Kia Carens.
Recently held last January 22, 2014, the 2013-2014 Car of the Year- Philippines (COTY-P) Awards Night gathered the country’s top motoring editors and journalists at the Filinvest Tent in Alabang to bestow top marks for vehicle categories. Kia Sorento LX FWD 5-seater came out on top of one of the major categories– the Best in the Midsize Crossover and Wagon category while Kia Carens LX CRDi bagged one of the coveted Special Awards– the Caltex with Techron Green Award.
We've all seen the awards and we've read the news, but if you've ever wondered how the cars get tested; here's a short video that gives a glimpse on how the Car Awards Group Incorporated does it. It starts early in the morning come test day and the vehicles are processed one by one by the technical team who run the eligible vehicles thru their paces measuring acceleration times, braking distances and handling ability. While that's going on, other CAGI members test drive and rate the vehicles accordingly until each and every one of the cars and trucks for the day has been driven by all the testers. Enjoy the video!
