KIA MOTORS AUSTRALIA

Founded in 1944 in South Korea and now part-owned by Hyundai, Kia Motors has established a rapidly-growing presence in the global car market with a diverse range of stylish, reliable, and well-finished cars.

Its family SUVs, the Sorento and Sportage, are style-leaders in the segment, as is the svelte Optima sedan. Across all of its models, Kia's Australian-tuned suspension is widely commended, and the frugal range of diesel and petrol engines have proven well-suited to Australian driving conditions and the demands of Australian buyers.

The Kia Carnival is the top-selling vehicle in the MPV segment. Kia also offers the sporty Pro Cee'd and Cerato Koup, as well as the Cerato hatch and sedan, Soul, seven-seat Rondo and the highly-awarded Rio.
