Kia is the second largest automobile manufacturer in South Korea behind Hyundai. Kia means “rising out of Asia” in Sino-Korean, which we believe is a perfect analogy for such a young company rearing its head with so many high-quality vehicles. Amazingly, Kia didn’t start branching out into car production until 1974, which makes the current range of vehicles available to purchase quite an achievement and gives added strength to the company’s slogan “The Power to Surprise”.

Another fact that may surprise you, there is currently six models in the Kia defence range used by the South Korean military which include four by fours and large haulage trucks.

Sales for Kia have been rising in Europe since 2002 when they released the new larger Kia Sorento which has proven to be very popular with UK drivers. In 2007, the new Chief Design Officer gave all new Kia cars a “Tiger Nose” styling which is designed the give the car a strong, recognisable face. Seeing as how Kia are fast becoming a very stylish brand as of late, this seems to be working well. Sticking to the winning formula, the 2014 Kia Sorento is even bigger and better.

Kia might be relatively new on the scene but Britain loves an underdog. As a Kia owner, make sure you protect yourself with a Kia warranty from Warrantywise. We guarantee not to be beaten on price and cover for any Kia extended warranty.
