A UK dealer has been named as the most customer-focused Kia dealer in Europe.
Westside Kia of Braintree, Essex, just north of London, scored the highest marks in a global ‘proficiency test organized by the South Korean manufacturer.
The dealership’s new-car sales rose to 445 units last year from 220 in 2003 after its owners doubled staff to 25 and invested about £1.7 million (E2.4 million) to upgrade the premises.
Westside Kia finished No. 2 globally to a dealership in Singapore.
