Kia hits new sales record

There’s an increasing army of satisfied Kia buyers out there who have helped the firm to its best sales month yet.

New Kia Cee'd

The new Kia Cee'd

There were 5,176 new Kias sold in May which is an impressive 33 per cent increase compared to May 2011. Year-to-date sales are up by 24 per cent, compared to last year.

Kia have said that they are determined to get a greater share of sales and they currently account for three per cent ok new UK car sales.

They’ve managed to introduce ‘budget’ cars that don’t skip on quality and style. Even the big boys of Ford and Vauxhall have had to introduce models into segments at lower ‘entry prices’.

You should expect their success to continue with the introduction last week of the all-new Cee’d.

This second generation Cee’d has a stronger focus on design, ergonomics and fuel efficiency. The C-segment family hatchback offers a high level of specification with the entry model starting at £14,395 OTR.

I know motoring writers aren’t supposed to like the bottom end of the market but I’m quite taken with the Cee’d and it has an impressive 7 year warranty package which brings peace of mind that most of their buyers are looking for.

The warranty transfers with the car and though the warranty is for a maximum of 100,000 miles (like many other manufacters) the firm insists that for the first three years the warranty is for ‘unlimited mileage’. Now that is impressive!
