Kia, Hyundai August Sales Continue to Top Charts

Karla SanchezSep 2, 2011
The Koreans keep topping the charts every month, so it comes as no surprise that August sales kept up the relentless pace. Sales were up 26.9 percent for Kia compared to last year, while Hyundai saw a 9 percent increase in year-over-year sales.

There's nowhere to go except for up for Kia, after its entire lineup received a makeover that transformed all its vehicles into a hot commodity. The Korean automaker reported a 26.9 increase over the same period last year, and a 39.4 increase in year-to-date sales. Kia moved 41,188 cars off the lot in August compared to 32,465 last year, with the midsize Sorento SUV leading the way with 13,573 units sold for the month. Surprisingly, people are still buying the Borrego -- only 9 of them, that is, and the Sedona minivan also continues to stay toward the bottom of the list, selling only 3,011 vehicles in August. If Kia continues its path up the high road, it will shatter its previous best-ever annual sales record in less than 9 months.

Car buyers flocked to Hyundai dealerships with fuel efficiency on their minds, as 35% of vehicles sold in August were models rated at 40 mpg highway.
