Sportage fastest to sell

The 2015 Kia Sportage has been named the fastest selling used car of 2017 by data from Auto Trader.

On average, it took just 24 days for the 2015 Kia Sportage to sell. This is the second consecutive year the Sportage has topped the list, with the 2014 model taking the top spot in 2016. Kia marked the end of a successful 2017 with three other models in the top 10 fastest selling used cars, with the 2014 Sportage in fourth, the 2014 Rio in fifth and 2015 Rio in ninth place.

Paul Philpott Kia Motors (UK) Ltd’s president and CEO said, ‘We are delighted that Auto Trader has confirmed that the Sportage was the fastest selling used car for the second year running, and that Kia has four of the top 10 fastest sellers.

‘This is great recognition for our UK dealer network who all work remarkably hard to fulfil the supply needs and great service Kia customers expect.’

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader retailer and consumer products director, said, ‘What a great year it’s been for Kia and the Sportage in particular, which has consistently featured on the national and regional top 10 lists throughout 2017.’
