Kia Motors is celebrating five million global sales of its best-selling Kia Sportage compact SUV.
Launched in 1993, the Kia Sportage has achieved this milestone in the year of its 25th anniversary. The latest model, which is the fourth-generation Sportage, launched in 2016, is more popular than ever. We reviewed it back in 2016.
Global sales averaged 38,000 units per month in 2017. In the UK, the Sportage continues to be the brand’s biggest seller. 39,683 were delivered to customers in 2017: equating to over a third of Kia’s UK sales last year.
“We are extremely proud to have achieved this milestone production figure for our global best-seller. The continued and accelerating popularity of the Sportage demonstrates the breadth of the car’s abilities and the strength of its appeal to buyers in markets all around the world,” said Ho Sung Song, Executive Vice President of Global Operations Divison, “Since 1993, the Sportage has become a benchmark car in the compact SUV segment, and its success has also led to the creation of a diverse and comprehensive range of SUVs and crossovers from Kia – with other new models to follow in future.”
