Kia Motors Corporation is the second-largest automaker in South
Korea and was first founded in 1944 and takes its name from the
Sino-Korean term â€œkiâ€ meaning â€œto come out ofâ€ and â€œaâ€ for â€œAsia.â€
Like other Asian automakers, Kia began its business by manufacturing
steel tubing and bicycle parts eventually producing full bicycles by
1951. Eventually the company moved on (much like Japanâ€™s Honda) to
manufacturing scooters which paved the way for their entry into the
automotive market. Kia debuted their first automobile in 1974 and
the Brisa was not only the first for the marque but was also the
first-ever Korean-made passenger vehicle to hit the road.
Kia steadily increased its repertoire throughout the 70 and 80s
and partnered with Ford in 1986 to develop the Concord, Avella and
Pride for domestic sales. Impressed with the designs and performance
of these models Ford rebadged the Pride as the Festiva for sale in
the US and later did the same with the Avella branded as the Ford
Aspire. It wasnâ€™t until the 1990s were in full swing, however, that
Kia began marketing its vehicles under its own name. The first Kia
to hit American shores was the Sephia, a compact sedan with a V4 and
a great price tag which was soon followed up by the Sportage, a
compact crossover designed to cash in on the SUV raze of the
Nineties. Although things were looking up for the brand the Asian
financial crisis at the end of the decade forced Kia into bankruptcy
and resulted in a 51% buyout by Hyundai.
The new millennium witnessed a renewal of the brand and Kia
fielded a number of highly successful vehicles. The Spectra debuted
in 2000 with both five door hatchback and four door sedan models and
quickly captured the economy segment of the market once occupied by
Honda and Toyota. In the same year, the Rio replaced the aging Pride
and enjoyed considerable success. Spurred on by surging sales and
increased popularity, Kia launched the Sportage (another SUV
offering) and the Amanti before the later was discontinued in 2007.
Most recently Kia has attempted to attract a younger demographic
going head to head with the Scion brand via its Kia Forte and Soul
which comes standard with USB ports and other tech-savvy
Kia has succeeded largely by understanding its strengths and not
overextending itself. Quality, style and versatility are the
hallmarks of the brand and their commitment to these values has
allowed them to flourish while producing attractive and affordable
vehicles at a time when behemoths like Toyota are scaling back their
youth-targeted brands. At Rvinyl.com, we get that Kia owners want
