KIA by CFAO: A budding young partnership with great potential

CFAO has been distributing Kia vehicles since the end of 2010. CFAO Automotive is the official importer and distributor for Kia in Gabon, where it began to market the brand in 2011.

We sell a large range of Kia vehicles, including city cars Picanto, Rio and Cerato, SUVs Sportage, Sorento and Mohave and the K2700 pick-up in the commercial segment. The Kia brand is constantly being renewed and a range of new models will be available as from this year.

Based in the Gabonese cities of Libreville and Port-Gentil, we have an extensive sales and after-sales network for spare parts, accessories, servicing requirements, body shops and other services.

An incredible success story

Founded in 1944, Kia is the oldest automaker in South Korea. Part of the Hyundai-Kia Automotive group, Kia has enjoyed among the fastest growth rates of all general automakers. Kia is currently reporting double-digit growth in all geographic areas: more than two million vehicles were sold in 2010, up 26.5% on 2009. Kia's star product is its Cerato (Forte) sedan, followed by the Sportage Crossover and the city car Rio.

A desirable, spirited brand

Kia has gone beyond its industrial success to establish itself as a desirable and spirited brand which remains affordable and accessible. Kia means "to arise to the world", symbolizing both its open-minded spirit, internal drive, and determination to grow. The brand's energy is rooted in three core values: quality, dynamism and fun. Its slogan, "The Power to Surprise", expresses its desire to constantly exceed customers' expectations through continuous innovation and original design. These qualities are inseparable from its brand identity and have already won it numerous awards.

Industry-leading warranties

Kia offers pioneering three-year or 100,000 km warranties on all vehicles, reflecting its belief in the quality of its products. The brand delivers superior reliability and safety, with most of its vehicles awarded the maximum five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests.
