A STRONG START TO 2017

With its expanding product range and changing innovative design concept, we have witnessed the day-to-day development of the KIA brand over the last 10 years. As a result of this progress, interest in KIA brand vehicles increases every day in Turkey as it does in the rest of the world. We continue to assert our position with invaluable first place finishes in the US for 2 consecutive years in 2016 and 2017, and in the UK in 2017 in the "J.D. Power First Quality Assessment Report" which rates customer satisfaction. With advanced technologies, award-winning designs, user satisfaction and a current brand value of $6.68 billion, we believe that KIA will continue to keep its finger on the pulse of the automotive industry in 2018.

With 4 new models to be put on the Turkish market in 2018, we believe that KIA will reach its goals with firm steps, always aware of the changing dynamics of the industry, and will continue to keep its finger on the pulse of the automotive sector.

We completely renewed the profile of the compact C class Cerato sedan and will release it to automobile enthusiasts in June 2018. The same month, Turkish showrooms will begin to exhibit cee’d whose sharp design changes will arouse deep admiration.

For the growing B-SUV segment, we plan to make an assertive entry with the new Stonic, which is the latest in our product range. As an alternative in the B segment, KIA Stonic will be in Turkey in September 2018. Another KIA model that will be offered for sale in our country is Optima, which is preparing to compete in the D segment. With its renewed design, the Optima will be showcased in Turkey in September 2018, at the same time as the rest of the world.

We believe that we will bring both dynamism and competition to the Turkish automotive market with our new models, widespread service and dealer network. With a total of seven new dealerships to be opened in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Bolu, Bursa and Antalya in 2018, we are continuing to grow in Turkey.

KIA, as a family, will continue to fulfil the expectations of automobile enthusiasts at their highest point, with the design and advanced technologyof our current and new models.
