The following paragraph covers a brief history of Kia as well as information regarding their current lineup.
Kia Motors is South Korea’s second largest manufacturer behind Hyundai. It is partially owned by The Hyundai Kia Automotive Group and was founded 1944. The company first built steel tubing and bicycles and eventually worked its way into manufacturing motorcycles in 1952. In 1986, Kia made a deal with Ford to produce several Mazda sourced vehicles to be sold inSouth Korea and a number of other countries. The company incorporated in the US in 1992 and in 1994 sold its first car, The Sephia. In 1997, due to the Asian financial crisis, Kia declared bankruptcy and 51% of the company was acquired by, at the time rival company, Hyundai. Today , the company owns less than 40% of Kia. Over the years, Hyundai and Kia have had a tight partnership that involves component, parts, and platform sharing to reduce cost and research and development. Over the years Kia has struggled with low consumer reviews of its vehicles regarding quality and performance; but Hyundai has pushed for new product development to re-establish Kia’s brand perception. The best example of this is this new 2011 Kia Sportage. In 2009, Kia reported its 15th consecutive year of sales growth in the United States. Kia’s current lineup includes The Borrego, Forte, Optima, Rio, Rondo, Sedpna. Sportage, Sorento. and Soul.
