Record Year End for KIA Motors

KIA Motors finished the year strong, with more 2016 awards for their reliability and quality than ever! KIA Motors also increased their sales by 3.5 percent over 2015, further demonstrating that KIA’s are quickly becoming the “hot” new cars on the road.

“From J.D. Power and Consumer Reports to many other respected third-party experts, KIA has never been more highly rated for quality and dependability, and customers flocked to our showrooms in December and throughout 2016 to experience all that the ‘New KIA’ offers,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “No auto brand has experienced greater growth in the U.S. over the last 20-plus years, and Kia will be on the offensive once again in 2017 with several new products in the pipeline that will continue challenging everything people think they know about this brand.”

KIA’s record-breaking year included several standout performances, including:

  • Four nameplates – Soul, Optima, Sorento and Forte – surpassing the 100,000-unit mark for the first time in company history
  • The iconic Soul urban passenger vehicle earning the title of best-selling Kia in the U.S.
  • Best-ever annual sales for the Sportage compact CUV and Forte family of compact cars, up more than 50 percent and 30 percent, respectively, over 2015
  • Double-digit year-over-year increases for Rio and Sedona
