Kia Sportage is Kia’s best selling model

Record sales in September

The Kia Sportage has proved to be the best selling model for Kia for the year to date with sales totalling 16,468 followed again by the Kia cee’d family at 11,611 and Kia Picanto at 11,109. Kia is celebrating its best ever single month sales ending September with 12,728 new cars delivered to customers.

Paul Philpott, President and Chief Executive of Kia Motors (UK) Limited said “throughout 2013 our dealer network has been building on the momentum established over the last few years and now both they and we are really seeing the results of all that hard work. With one of the most modern ranges of cars in the market-place, our still unrivalled seven year warranty and sensible value customers are recognising the benefits of the Kia brand and September has shown just what potential we have for continued growth in the marketplace and to deliver profitable growth for our dealers.”

The Kia Sportage offers style and substance for families; the latest model is longer, wider and lower than the previous model but retains the key SUV features that made the second generation Kia Sportage so popular. It is also available with a fully integrated satellite navigation system featuring a seven inch full map colour touchscreen integrated seamlessly into the central dash console providing access to a large selection of UK and European maps and points of interest. The Kia Sportage is also available with Kia’s Care-3 servicing package. The Kia Care-3 servicing package offers customers a fixed cost, inflation-proof servicing for the first three or five years. All work is carried out by trained product technicians, using genuine Kia replacement parts and specified oils and is available on all versions of Model Year 13 Sportage.

The Kia cee’d was close on the heels of the Sportage for sales figures, the new cee’d has a muscular looking shape; it sports the Kia trademark tiger nose grille and has a sport compact design. Exterior features include chrome side glazing surround and wraparound headlamp clusters plus body coloured bumpers and mirrors with tinted glass windows for ultra sleek aesthetics. The Kia Picanto is equally as popular, recently the Kia Picanto ‘City’ was released with prices starting at just £8995. The Picanto ‘City’ is available as a five door or a three door and the improved cabin space makes this five seat hatchback extremely spacious which ever option you choose. 

When purchasing a Kia customers also have the added reassurance of the 7-Year Kia Warranty which is simply the ‘longest and best’ warranty available on any car.


Changed 3 yr old previous model for 1.6 GDi 2 in June. No issues at all - great all round purchase

A lot of niggles, radio cannot be switched off with turning off the SatNav and the hazard lights switch can be knocked on with using the touch screen. Drivers door does not always shut and the steering is stiff and heavy.Actual MPG are no where near the official figures. You can knock on the lights when using the indicator arm.
