The Optima was once again the best seller for Kia, making it their top vehicle for the 20th consecutive month. It sold 13,752 units, up from the 13,317 sold in July 2012.
Ahn Byung-mo, CEO of Kia Motors America, posted a statement on the Kia website saying that the awareness of the newest Kia products is on the rise, as is their reputation as an automaker that delivers more style and features for the money.
The carmaker’s US sales are expected to post strong gains as Kia has already announced plans to have seven all-new or significantly redesigned vehicles arrive during the course of 2013.
