“Showroom traffic and sales have shot up over the last six weeks since J.D. Power recognized Kia as the highest scoring nameplate in the industry for initial quality and bestowed four APEAL awards to our world-class offerings in some of the largest and most competitive segments,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “With the market cooling and customers looking for smart choices, these recent accolades reflect the satisfaction of our owners – many of whom are new to the Kia brand – and help strengthen our position as so much more than simply a value leader.”
