And the winner is... the environment?

With Kia and The Ocean Cleanup dragging 55-tonne of plastics out of the Pacific Ocean (with a portion to be used in the Korean car maker's EVs), that initiative goes a small way to doing good work for our environment.

You may also notice we've kept the Wildtrak picture for another round - that's because we liked it so much we thought it deserving of another go.
