Founded in 1944 as Kyungsung Precision Industry, Kia is currently Korea’s second largest auto manufacturer and it’s oldest. Kia is recognised as having developed Korea’s first motorcycle and the country’s first truck. Kia is also the first company in Korea to locally produce petrol car engines and the first domestic diesel engine. In 1979, the quality of Kia’s car production was recognised when two of the world’s leading European car makers chose Kia to build their ‘range topper’ models on their behalf – the Peugeot 604 and Fiat 132.
It was in the1980’s that Kia’s growth really took off. In 1986 Ford joined the list of car makers who looked to Kia to produce their vehicles. The Festiva (produced by Kia) joined Ford’s line up first in the USA, then across the world including Australia, where Kia produced two generations of Ford’s entry-level cars.
Building over 3 million vehicles a year in 14 plants across 9 countries, we pride ourselves on delivering what other car companies cannot – a remarkably diverse range of vehicles sold in over 172 countries around the world.
Today Kia Motors Australia is the first to offer Australia’s only 7 year unlimited kilometre warranty, with roadside assistance and 7 year capped priced servicing.
