Why Choose Kia? Because it is more than a brand. It is a global automotive powerhouse that continuously strives for – and delivers on – excellence in design, innovation, quality, reliability and durability. No matter which Kia model you choose or how long your journey may be: behind the wheel of a Kia, you will experience all this, and more.

Award-winning quality

Don’t to take our word for it, it has been verified and substantiated by the numerous prestigious accolades the brand has received. Since 2015, Kia has ranked highest amongst mass market brands for initial quality in the authoritative J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS). In fact, in 2015, it kicked the German powerhouse, Porsche, out of the number one spot, and then maintained that lead for six consecutive year. While Kia ranks 9th overall in the 2023 study, it says a lot that only three of the other top 10 brands are available in South Africa, at that Kia is still the highest-ranked mass market brand in the rankings.

Award-winning reliability

Our continuous desire to be the best of the best didn’t stop there. As of 2021, Kia also ranks highest for dependability in the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS), proving that behind our multiple award-winning designs there is not only industry-leading quality, but also industry-leading reliability.

This is why all Kia vehicles sold in South Africa comes as standard with our bumper-to-bumper Unlimited Kilometre warranty. We’re so certain of our vehicles’ reliability that we encourage all Kia owners to get it and get out, to explore every part of South Africa as often as possible – because it doesn’t matter how far you go in the first five years of ownership; our warranty gives you peace of mind no matter how many kilometres you cover.

But don’t trust us. Trust the experts when they tell you that Kia is leading by example. Whether you choose the evergreen Picanto or the adventure-ready Sonet, every Kia comes standard with the quality and reliability credentials that have made the Kia Sportage South Africa’s Midsize SUV of the Year, and the Sorento South Africa’s Premium SUV of the Year, in the 2023 South African Car of the Year competition.
