Best ever September as Kia heads towards new record year

13,292 new car sales in the month. 62,538 sales so far in 2014. Sportage stays at top of Kia sales chart. Kia Motors (UK) Limited enjoyed its best-ever September sales performance with 13,292 new cars delivered to customers during the month - helping the marque reach a sales total so far in 2014 of 62,538 - more than seven per cent up on 2013.

The Kia Sportage retained its best-selling position within Kia's range attracting almost 3,500 buyers followed by Picanto, cee'd, Rio and Venga and the brand maintained its strong retail performance with 56 per cent of buyers coming from amongst that sector.

Kia's September sales has only been surpassed by the brand's performance in March this year when 14,787 new cars were delivered, but it surpassed the previous best September - in 2013.

Yaser Shabsogh, Commercial Director commented: "In a tough marketplace it was reassuring to see that Kia's continued record performance held throughout September to deliver our best-ever autumn sales month.

"The market is continuing to grow and with it our performance remains very strong and gives us every reason to believe we shall surpass our target of 78,000 units this year - yet another record year for Kia! And I am particularly pleased that our strong retail performance has continued - that delivers good results for our 181-strong dealer network," he added.

Kia's September performance represented an increase of 4.43 per cent over the same month last year and the year-to-date total is 7.26 per cent up over 2014.
