Kia Comprehensive Sales Summary : 2017


Everything said about Hyundai applies equally well to Kia. Like its sister brand, sales should return in 2018 to a higher level now that the turbulence has passed.

The Sportage retains the number one spot for a second year with 460,00 factory sales. The top five did however dip qiute some way. This was partially offset by the Niro as well as the new Stonic and Stinger models.
