The all-new 2019 Kia Forte compact sedan didn’t merely help drive a year-over-year sales increase for Kia in October. Sales of the Forte totaled 9,537 vehicles last month, setting a new October record.
Kia overall saw sales of 45,102 vehicles for the month, which was also helped along by a 45 percent gain for the Rio, 11 percent gain for the Niro, and 10 percent gain for the Sportage.
“With the Forte’s best-ever October sales and three additional models realizing double-digit sales growth, we are confident that Kia’s sales momentum will remain positive well into the first quarter of 2019,” said Bill Peffer, vice president, sales operations, Kia Motors America. “This upward trajectory will be bolstered by the wide variety of new product introductions Kia has scheduled over the coming months that will continue driving traffic and attracting new customers to the Kia brand.”
Sales of the Kia Stinger remained strong in October, totaling 1,345 vehicles. Through the first 10 months of the year, the Kia Rio, Niro, Sportage, and Sorento have all seen significant gains over 2017, helping the brand maintain its standing as one of the most popular in America.
