Kia in the Community


Kia Country is active in our community. Kia is one of the fastest growing car companies in the U.S., and as sales have grown, so has our role as a responsible corporate citizen. We’re continually increasing our efforts to positively impact the communities we’re in. In fact, one of our company’s core values is Globality. This means we’re always working to enhance the quality of life for people everywhere—to strive for a safe, diverse, and prosperous world.
