Kia Sportage remains best-selling Kia model in May

We reckon it’s one of the best compact SUVs getting around and the new Kia Sportage is doing a bang-up job of winning over car buyers globally.

Long the bridesmaid to the popular Kia Rio, the Sportage overtook its smaller stablemate in April and maintained its mantle as the top-selling Kia model globally in May.

Global sales data released by Kia shows the Sportage was delivered to 48,798 customers in the month, that figure being well ahead of the Rio’s total of 36,445.

Cerato (31,372), Soul (18,613) and the Sorento (17,609) finishing third to fifth.

Overall May was another month of growth for Kia globally. 261,269 deliveries represented a healthy 3.4% increase over the same month last year.

Remarkably, Kia experienced an unprecedented 19.5% rise in sales in its home market, South Korea. Sales were also up an impressive 8.5% in Europe.
