Along with fellow South Korean car manufacturer Hyundai, Kia has been gradually stealing more and more sales from long-established brands such as Ford and Vauxhall in the UK, and now they have their sights firmly set on tempting drivers away from mid and premium marques such as Volkswagen and BMW with their 7 year warranty and generous equipment levels. With appealing styling and good dynamics to match, owning a Kia has never been more tempting. Kia's major UK success has been the Kia Sportage, a class-leading crossover SUV with a premium feel to its interior and bucketloads of practicality. It's also a blast to drive, proving that small SUVs can be fun. In fact, the Kia Sportage has been unbelievably popular in the UK with Kia shifting 12-months worth of sales in just four! For those wanting something a little smaller, Kia offer a decent family car in the Kia Ceed, coming in both hatchback and sportswagon guises, along with a performance version - the Pro Ceed. Their city car is the stylish Kia Rio, popular with grannies and teens alike while saloon car drivers are catered for with the Kia Optima, a car incorporating technologies such as wireless phone charging, autonomous city braking and lane keeping assist. Kia even have a couple of electric vehicles in the range, the Kia Soul EV and the Kia Niro, a crossover SUV that's both spacious and cheap to run.
