The winning dealers and their scores were:

The dealerships are now in Reputation’s ‘800 Club’ top 40.

Collectively, Kia’s 191-strong dealer network has a Reputation average score of 675, higher than the industry average of 562.

‘We are excited to congratulate Kia UK Limited on receiving Reputation’s 800 Award,’ said Joe Fuca, Reputation CEO.

‘Reaching a Reputation Score of 800 is a best in class milestone that we’re proud to recognise as a badge of customer experience excellence.’


Simon Hetherington, commercial director at Kia UK Limited, said: ‘The entire Kia dealer network works tirelessly to put customers first and this is true recognition of their considerable efforts.

‘Congratulations to each of the dealers that have earned Reputation’s “800 Award” and long may their success continue.’
