Kia dealership, Gatwick Kia is enjoying success once again as the brand topped Car Dealer magazine's Power Awards to be named as the ‘Best Manufacturer of the Year’, following a country-wide poll amongst new car sales dealerships.

Now in its fifth year, the Car Dealer Power Awards are synonymous with excellence in the industry, on account of the awards being voted for and awarded based purely on feedback from dealers across the UK. The top honour of 'Best Manufacturer' was bestowed in recognition of the steps Kia is taking to continue to build the brand and the value and importance it places on building relationships.

David Ovenden, Sales Director at Kia comments: “We are honoured to have been given this award by our dealers as it highlights how far we have come as a brand and how strong our dealer network is. We would like to thank all of our dealers for their continued support – to have been crowned ‘Best Manufacturer of the Year’ is reason to celebrate. At Kia, we always try to go beyond the call of duty with every aspect of what we do, and this is a fantastic endorsement of the hard work everyone puts in to delivering the best possible service.”

James Batchelor, editor of Car Dealer said: "This is the highest accolade the trade can give – there are no judges, no panel of experts – the decision lies solely with the thousands of people working in dealerships up and down Great Britain. Kia has experienced a transformation. It has revamped its product range and received plaudits for a number of initiatives which have gone down well with dealers and their customers. It has fully embraced online feedback to enhance its reputation and make a name for itself as an open and transparent company to do business with."
