Local Kia dealership Roadside (Garages) Ltd. enjoyed exceptional sales figures in August as the brand overall saw an 81 per cent increase on sales from 2015.

That took Kia to a year-to-date sales performance of 57,609 – again a best-ever figure by this point in the year and an increase of 14.7 per cent over the same period last year.

These figures mean Kia entered both the Top Ten makes and the Top Ten models as reported by the SMMT. The all-new Sportage recording 8th place after 1,540 models were delivered to the ever-growing band of customers for Kia’s hit mid-size SUV. In a market up by 3.3 per cent Kia’s overall sales saw the company join the Top Ten in 7th place for the first time in its history.

So far this year over 20,000 all-new Sportage models have been delivered to customers with total Sportage sales of almost 25,000.

Ian Lamont, Roadside (Garages) Limited said: “Whilst August is generally a quiet month, at Roadside we have been recording remarkable levels of demand and interestingly so many customers have not wanted to wait for the new registration plate! Ever since we launched our all-new Sportage there has been a waiting list and it is clear that our customers in Coleraine are desperate to get their hands on the car.

“As these figures show, the Sportage is hugely popular and we invite anyone looking for their next car in Coleraine to come down and test drive this, as well as our new Niro crossover and the new Optima Sportswagon and plug-in-hybrid saloon.”
