The Kia line-up will soon be bolstered by a brand new version of the Sorento and a new Kia Grand Carnival is also in the pipeline, both additions sure to help increase sales.

But, even before these new offerings arrive, the Kia success story continues. The South Korean brand has just reported official sales data that shows that Kia experienced another 3.4% increase in sales globally last month over their July 2013 total.

Strong demand for Kia vehicles in China, North America and Korea led the charge, while here in Australia 2,416 Australian car buyers chose a Kia last month, a very respectable performance (2,410 sales were achieved by the brand in the same month last year).

Tae-Hyun Oh, Executive Vice President and COO of Kia Motors, welcomed the strong result.

“With the third generation Kia Sorento SUV scheduled to be launched later this year, we are confident that our current positive momentum will even further be strengthened.”
