Kia recently reported the best quarterly sales performance in their company history – 140,330 units – and this was no surprise to the sales professionals at Briggs Kia. As the premiere Kia dealership in Topeka, Kansas and surrounding areas, they have been dealing with the high-quality and affordable Kia vehicles for a while and they have come to expect only the best from the car company.

The results mark the sixth-consecutive quarterly sales record for Kia in the U.S. Kia's funky Soul remains tremendously popular and posted its best-ever sales of 11,314 units in June. Overall, the June total of 45,044 vehicles represents a 41.2% increase from the same period a year earlier. KMA's year-to-date sales are up 44.1% over 2010 thanks to solid sales performances by the Sorento CUV, Soul urban passenger vehicle and the Optima midsize sedan.

"Kia has experienced extraordinary momentum and by achieving our sixth straight quarterly sales record it is clear that our fresh lineup continues to attract new consumers to our showrooms as a result of Kia's aggressive product-led transformation," said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG).

"Soul's best-ever monthly sales result and the launch of Kia's first hybrid in June further validates Kia's strategy of bringing the most innovative, functional, and fuel-efficient products to market. These products are designed to meet and exceed the expectations of today's consumers at a tremendous value, and with exciting new products like the significantly enhanced 2012 Soul coming this summer and two all-new Rios this fall, we are well positioned to continue our growth into the future."

Kia's model year 2011 vehicle line includes the Sorento CUV, Sportage compact CUV, Optima midsize sedan, Soul urban passenger vehicle, Forte compact sedan, Forte 5-door compact hatchback, Forte Koup two-door coupe, Rio sub-compact sedan, Rio5 sub-compact hatchback and Sedona minivan.
