In a month where the UK car market was down 9.3 percent, Kia Motors have posted another successful month of sales with the Kia Sportage, contributing 3,155 units, putting it firmly in the top ten best sellers in the UK. With the Sportage being available from Eastbourne and Washington at Birchwood Kia.
Kia's total sales topped 7,155 in July with Sportage taking the top spot, helped by the recently introduced All-New Kia Picanto which sold nearly 1,000 units in July alone and the Kia Cee'd which continues to be favourite with business and retail customers.
Kia's July sales brings the year to date figure to 57,805, over 4,000 units more than at the same time in 2016. It also sees Kia's market share increase to 3.7 percent.
Kia Motors are delighted to once again be in the top ten best sellers with their ever successful Sportage, which along with other important products such as the All-New Picanto and Cee'd helped them post another month of pleasing results despite the tough market conditions. Kia's dealer partners such as the team here at Birchwood Kia have all worked incredibly hard for this result and they remain on track to achieve our full year plan of 92,000 units, which would be another record of Kia.
The rest of the year looks positive, with the introduction of the All-New Kia Stonic, a car which has high volume potential, and the Kia Stinger which is set to raise Kia's brand awareness and introduce the brand to yet another segment.
