KIA Motors Experiences All-Time Sales High In Certified Pre-Owned Segment
Following an all-time high in June, a retail sales report by Autodata shows that Kia held a market share of three percent in Certified Pre-Owned sales in July- making this their second-strongest month in CPO sales ever. It is predicted that this trend isn’t slowing down either- in 2015, about 2.6 million CPO vehicles (across all brands) were sold and many are expecting these sales to hit nearly four million by the end of the decade.
Michelle Krebs, a senior analyst at AutoTrader stated “With household budgets squeezed, CPO vehicles represent a great opportunity for consumers, especially Kia customers who place such emphasis on affordability and value.”
To be considered as a Certified Pre-Owned, KMA requires the vehicle to be five years or newer with less than 60,000 miles. Additionally, the vehicle must pass a 150-point Quality Assurance inspection by a certified Kia technician.
