Kia can happily say they had a great 2011.
Why you might ask?Well thanks to a series of awards, and
sales numbers that broke records, the South Korean automaker is pretty
happy. 2011 is not going to be a one hit
wonder year for Kia however. In reality,
2012 is shaping up to be just as good of year, if not better!
Kiefer Kia is happy to announce
that the stylish 2012
Kia Optima has been recognized as Autobytel's "2012 Sedan of the
Year." If you are not aware of Autobytel, it is an automotive research
group that actually test drives many different makes a models, to deliver the
most accurate information to its readers. The Kia Optima left many people and awe, and
set a hard reputation for other vehicles to follow.
As a result, Michael Sprague, Vice President of
Marketing and Communication, was very proud of the 2012 Optima model's
performance. He comments, "The midsize sedan segment is more competitive
than ever and Autobytel's recognition of the Optima continues to keep Kia's
momentum going into 2012."1 While it is reliable
and safe, it also has a fun side to it. The details: the 2012 Kia Optima offers
voice-activated infotainment, up an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, HD radio,
full power accessories and USB connectivity.
Personally, we at Kiefer Kia
are thrilled that the Optima and other
Kia models (i.e. the Kia
Soul) have made such strides, and we're excited to see what they come
out with over the next eyar. If you want
