New KIA Design by Peter Schreyer

The entire current generation of KIA cars have been designed by Peter Schreyer, the mastermind behind Audi TT’s design.
Interbrand, the publishers of the Best Global Brands Awards have ranked KIA as the 69th most valuable brand in the world. Companies that are known to have a clear sense of their organizational strategies and are able to deliver exceptional customer service are included in Interband’s rankings.
The availability of KIA cars in Pakistan has been made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts of Yunus Brothers Group, one of Pakistan’s largest conglomerates, and KIA Motors Corporation. Both top-end companies have joined hands to bring an ultimate competitor in Pakistan’s lacking auto industry and will start supplying KIA vehicles in the country through imported CBU’s.
As the industry strengthens, the KIA-Lucky Motors will eventually move towards importing CKD’s in an effort to increase localization and reduce costs for the end-user. Until now, Pakistan’s auto sector has suffered due to lack of innovation exhibited by the existing auto companies, KIA will revolutionize the industry and allow international-grade vehicles to become available in the country to push both investors and competitors alike. Pakistani citizens will finally be able to enjoy reasonable pricing and technological features in their vehicles that have been absent in the motherland’s auto sector since decades.
