The automaker reported significant double-digit increases in many major markets: 45.9 per cent in China, 20.6 per cent in North America and 20.6 percent in Europe. September sales in Kia’s home market of Korea grew year-on-year by 4.4 percent, while sales in general markets declined by 2.6 percent.

"We should carry out aggressive marketing so that new strategic models for Europe will drive European sales,"
Chung Mong-koo, chairman of Hyundai Motor Group, said in a recent visit to the Old Continent.

For the first nine months of the year, Kia’s global sales have shown an increase of 18.2 percent compared to the first three quarters of last year. North America saw the biggest change with a 35 percent jump this year, followed by China with 27.1 percent.
