Kia Philippine Sales Soar 124 Percent in 2019


A year after the Kia brand’s re-launch under Ayala Corporation, the Korean carmaker soared reporting a 124 percent year-on-year growth.

Driving the strong performance were the Soluto sub-compact sedan, the K2500 light-duty truck, the Grand Carnival minivan, and the newly-launched Seltos sub-compact crossover. The Soluto led the increase, capturing 51 percent of sales volume, followed by the K2500 with 21 percent, Grand Carnival with 13 percent, and 7 percent for the Seltos.

The Stinger, Sorento, Sportage, Forte, Rio and Picanto complete the entire Kia line-up that sold a total of 5,019 vehicles in 2019—a 124 percent jump from the 2,238 vehicles sold during the previous year.

“We are pleased with the strong performance of Kia Philippines in 2019,” expressed Manny Aligada, President of Kia Philippines.  “As we enter 2020, Kia Philippines looks forward to surpassing its record with new vehicle introductions, the opening of new dealerships, and better aftersales services,” Aligada added.
