The January perform captured a 4.39 per cent share of the Januance was 51 per cent up on January in 2016 – itself one of Kia’s best-ever January numbers. In January 2016 Kia delivered 5,066 new cars to customers for a 2.99 per cent market share.
Paul Philpott, Kia Motors (UK) Limited President and Chief Executive said: “This is a stunning performance by our dealers and reflects the continuing confidence and desire amongst our amazing growing family of customers.
“Our special SUV event saw demand for all our multi-purpose models such as Sportage, Sorento, Niro and Soul increase and this has given us a very positive start to 2017. We still expect some challenges this year – not least when the VED regulations change in April, but this level of demand shows our customers recognise the style, quality and affordability that Kia represents,” he added.
