Long before its automotive debut, Kia started making bicycle parts in the mid-1940s as Kyungsung Precision Industries. Credited with building Kia's first domestic bicycle in 1951, the company changed its name to Kia Industries the same year and set out to expand its operations. Next, Kia started building motorcycles and turned its attention to automobiles in the 1970s. Opening its first automotive production facility in 1974, Kia unveiled its first passenger car, the Brisa, shortly after.
Production of the Brisa came to a halt in the 1980s when government shutdowns forced Kia to focus its efforts on building light-duty trucks. By the end of the decade, Kia partnered with Ford and rejoined the automotive industry, selling its models under the Ford banner as the Festiva and Aspire. Fortunately, the 1990s brought Kia to North America and, by 1999, to Canada, where the automaker enjoyed widespread success with models like the Sephia and Sportage.
By the time Kia arrived in Canada, the company had declared bankruptcy and exchanged its partnership with Ford for one with Hyundai Motor Company. The partnership has proven profitable for both entities, giving Kia the footing it needed to expand in Canada. Part of that expansion came in 2005 with the opening of Kia's state-of-the-art headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario. The 160,000 square foot facility firmly established Kia's roots on Canadian soil and laid the foundation for a stellar future defined by models like the Soul, Soul EV, Forte, Rio, Telluride, Sportage, Niro, Sorento, and many others.
As the fifth-largest automaker in the world, it's no surprise that Kia's 2022 lineup is more innovative, versatile, and capable than ever. Compact models like the Kia Forte sedan and the Forte5 hatchback continue to impress and prove you don't have to compromise spaciousness and performance for efficiency. For example, the Forte averages 8.8 L/100 km in the city and 6.6 L/100 km on the highway when powered by the 1.6L turbocharged engine.
The midsized K5 and the Kia Soul are great options for drivers looking for something larger. The K5's turbocharged engine can satisfy your need for speed, and its available all-wheel drive system ensures you can tackle all the elements. The Soul has a big personality with its bold design and exclusive features like sound-reactive mood lighting. You'll find even more space and versatility in models like the Sportage, which offers Kia's Dynamic All-Wheel Drive that inspires adventure long after the pavement ends and the trail begins.
For growing families with a penchant for epic adventures, the new Kia Telluride is there to answer the call of the wild. As Kia's largest and newest SUV, the Telluride is the complete package. It's equipped with cutting-edge safety and driver-assist tools, premium interior materials, modern luxuries, and innovative technology that keeps you safe, comfortable, connected, and informed wherever your journey leads.

Kia's history is a true underdog story and an example that persistence pays off. After getting its start manufacturing bicycle parts and motorcycles, Kia expanded into the automotive industry only to be shut down by the government. The automaker then faced financial hardships, made vital alliances, and eventually declared bankruptcy. However, Kia refused to settle and, from humble beginnings, became one of the largest automakers in the world.
Kia knew that, despite its many setbacks, it had something unique to offer drivers–vehicles that were not only affordable but were also capable, versatile, and innovative. Today, Kia continues to offer as much, whether you're looking at a full-size SUV like the Telluride or a sophisticated sedan like the K5. Because of these models and Kia's persistence, we couldn't be prouder to carry the Kia name.
So, are you ready to join the Kia family? We hope your answer is "yes" because the team here at Sherwood Kia is excited to meet you and show you everything the Kia lineup offers. It's time to get excited about buying a Kia, so what are you waiting for? Contact us or visit the dealership today!
