kia, the company

Congratulations! Your selection of a Kia was a wise investment. It will
give you years of driving pleasure. Now that you are the owner of a
Kia vehicle, you’ll probably be asked a lot of questions about your
vehicle and the company like “What is a Kia?”, “Who is Kia?”, “What
does ‘Kia’ mean?”.

Here are some answers. First, Kia is the oldest car company in Korea.
It is a company that has thousands of employees focused on building
high-quality vehicles at affordable prices.

The first syllable, Ki, in the word “Kia” means “to arise from to the
world” or “to come up out of to the world.” The second syllable, a,
means “Asia.” So, the word Kia, means “to arise from” or “to come
up out of Asia to the world.”

Drive safely and enjoy your Kia!
