Celebrating our 15th year of operations in Thunder Bay, Performance Kia has grown from a business employing 3 staff to 32 staff at present. Acquiring the Kia Franchise in 2000, Performance Kia first opened their 2,000 sq ft storefront on Memorial Avenue. As popularity and demand for the Kia brand grew, the need for a larger 5-vehicle showroom was a must. With the completion in 2010 of our new 12,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility across the street on 13th Avenue, Bruno, Kevin and their staff could now showcase the award-winning Kia lineup and deliver the ultimate car buying experience to Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario at the highest level.
As one of the most distinctive dealer recognition programs of Kia, ‘Platinum Prestige’ is awarded only to the global top 3% of all Kia dealers. In 2014, and verified through Dealer Dashboard, Kia’s comprehensive evaluation program, Bruno, Kevin and their entire team at Performance Kia won the ‘Platinum Prestige Award’ by demonstrating excellence in facility, management, process and performance.
Says Dealer Principal Bruno Niederer, “We are very fortunate and honoured to receive this award. There are 72 different ratings for the dealership that also includes customer satisfaction and our commitment to and involvement in our local community.”
Performance Kia not only offers you a large modern showroom showcasing our award winning lineup, we also provide Financial Services, an efficient Service Department with convenient drive-in, Kia Genuine Parts & Accessories, Detail Centre, Kia Café, Children’s Play Centre and more. The distinction ‘Kia Prestige’ also means that, not only do we offer you the award-winning Sorento, Optima, Soul and more, we are authorized to offer you premium sedans in the K900 and Cadenza, both combining elegant design and cutting-edge technology.
Every Kia is built to an uncompromising standard of quality, helping to push Kia into the top tier of global brands. In June 2015 J.D. Power and Associates rated Kia 2nd to Porsche in initial quality. Kia produces vehicles that not only set an exceptional standard of quality – they are also designed, engineered and built to inspire.
