Kia Motors America today announced October sales of 50,007 units, led by the Sorento and Sportage models, which realized 30- and 15-percent increases in sales year-over-year, respectively. Overall, Kia’s year-over-year sales are up 3.3-percent.

 “Double-digit growth for Sportage and Sorento coupled with another strong performance by Telluride illustrates the enduring popularity of our full line of SUVs,” said Bill Peffer, vice president, sales operations, Kia Motors America. “We’re confident that the continued interest in Telluride and the added exposure Kia’s full model lineup will receive at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month will contribute to a strong close to 2019.”
