Kia_logoKia, one of the fastest rising automotive brands in the country, had the best August on record, with an estimated 52,025 vehicles being sold during the month.

The sales numbers amount to a 4% increase from August of last year.

High-Quality Vehicles Lead to Monthly Success

Among all Kia vehicles, the U.S.-built Optima celebrates 21 straight months as the top seller, with 15,199 units sold during August.

The 2014 Cadenza, an all-new vehicle this year, exceeded 1,500 units for the 2nd month straight, thanks in large part to excellent reviews from Consumer Reports, Kelley Blue Book, and the Car Connection.

Other excellent vehicles like the Forte, Soul, and Sportage have helped make the brand one of the most popular car makers in the U.S.A.

In late 2012, Kia promoted Peter Schreyer, the brand’s design head, to company president. This move showed how Kia is fully dedicated to excellent automobiles first and foremost. If the current sales figures are any measure, the move appears to be paying off.

Thanks to these excellent cars and SUVs, the brand has enjoyed increased sales over the last four years, a feat only accomplished by two other auto brands. In 2012, Kia surpassed the 500,000 unit mark for the first time in the brand’s history.

Kia has expertly molded fun-to-drive performance with sophisticated technology and sleek designs. Of course, Kia’s entertaining commercial don’t hurt either.

While the current numbers are exciting, Kia is not sitting still. The completely redesigned 2014 Kia Soul will be arriving soon, adding more value to the overall brand.

As one of the leaders for in-car technology,  the car maker is sure to  keep innovating with infotainment and connectivity features, something that will be appreciated by future car shoppers.
