The Kia brand attributes the outstanding sales to being recognized as the highest scoring nameplate in the 2016 Initial Quality Study by J.D. Power.

“No auto brand has experienced greater growth over the last 20 years than Kia, and J.D. Power’s IQS announcement boosted our momentum with huge increases in online and showroom traffic,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “By every measure, the ‘New Kia’ is an elite automaker and one of the industry’s greatest success stories.”

The Kia brand has sold a total of 328,327 in 2016 alone! And as they look at the 6-month sales, they are especially proud of the 76.3 percent year-over-year increase the 2016 Kia Sportage has seen, as well as the best ever single month sales in May. The 2016 Kia Forte sold an all-time high of 10,406 units in March and has had the best-ever first half of the year sales.
