KIA topped Car Dealer magazine’s Power awards when it was named the best manufacturer in the country-wide poll among new car sales dealerships.
James Batchelor, editor of Car Dealer, said: “This is the highest accolade the trade can give, there are no judges, no panel of experts, the decision lies solely with the thousands of people working in dealerships up and down Great Britain.
“Kia has experienced a transformation. It has revamped its product range and received plaudits for a number of initiatives which have gone down well with dealers and their customers.”
“It has fully embraced online feedback to enhance its reputation and make a name for itself as an open and transparent company to do business with,” he added.
