The consistently popular Kia Optima.

The Kia success story continues as global sales continue to steam ahead for the South Korean manufacturer.

Kia sold 224,988 new vehicles globally in August, 5.9% more cars than the same month last year.

Much of that growth continues to come from Korea and China where Kia is experiencing double digit sales increases (21.6% and 13.1% respectively).

In Australia Kia managed a respectable 2,531 sales in the month, making Kia the 12th most popular car brand in the nation.

Overall this year, Kia’s global sales have increased by 2.9% to reach 1,840,786 units, while the Rio remains the company’s best-selling car, ahead of Sportage, Cerato and Optima.
