Kia Car Prices in Nigeria (June 2024)

Although Kia has been around for several decades, the automobile brand stormed Nigeria around the turn of the century. Specifically, the parent body Hyundai was established in 1998. Kia Motors hit the shores of Nigeria at a time when the automobile industry was experiencing a surge. Everyone just wanted to own a car or two. Personally, I can say they’ve had it good over the years.

Kia Motors is the second largest automobile producer in South Korea, just behind Hyundai Motors. Nonetheless, both production outlets are almost inseparable in ownership and management, with each owning significant shares in each’s equity. This relationship is almost very evident in their designs, with similarities existing between models of the two brands.

One amazing thing that the Kia brand brought to Nigeria at the time was a cheaper alternative to seemingly luxury cars. Its models were slightly less expensive compared to what you might consider mainstream exotic brands. Many believe that this tells on the quality of the brand too, but that claim may have been defeated as Kia has treated us to some amazing products over the years.

My favorite Kia model is the Kia Sportage. Not just because I love Mini SUVs, but because the ride is pretty smooth, and has some of the qualities that great brands possess, including durability and traction. It also has a great external profile and a look of maturity that commands the respect of car lovers. The Kia Sorento is another fantastic model for many reasons.

What you will like about Kia cars

  • Exterior/Interior Beauty: The Kia brand actually comes with a lot of styles, especially the current models. This is one quality that makes the brand stand out within its league.
  • Affordability: I have mentioned this passively, but I think it’s important I emphasize it. Within its rank, Kia seems one of the most affordable brands out there.
  • Efficiency: The brand is also very efficient. It is great for personal, corporate, and even family use. You can never go wrong with this one.
  • Added Features: From the sound system, AC, GPS, and other amazing features, to great car chairs and pigeon area, you sure have a great companion with a Kia.

What you may not like about Kia cars

As much as it is an amazing car, there are quite a few things that may not go down well with you. First, the brand has a “not so good” reputation when it comes to durability. It is not as durable as some of the top brands around.

Another factor to watch out for is the “not so good” fuel economy. Compared to many brands, it is fair though, but is worthy of mention. These and other factors that deal with people’s mindset regarding cars not made in Japan, Germany, Europe or America, form some of the negatives about the brand.
