Schreyer was responsible for completely redesigning each Kia model and these drastic improvements benefited the entire brand. He did so much to make Kia a popular car in America that Automobile Magazine named him Man of the Year in 2012.

Before 2006 Schreyer worked with Audi to create the Audi TT, often seen as one of the most influential vehicles in the automotive industry.

Kia continues to be one of the most design-focused car manufacturers in the industry, separating itself with a commitment to sharp and modern designs. But a great looking car won’t become a popular vehicle if it doesn’t back it up with quality and reliability, and these cars never fail to impress on that front as well.
