Performance Kia Kia Dealership in Thunder Bay.

We Want To Be Your New Car Dealer!

About Us

Kia’s philosophy is about delivering more cars with more features per dollar than the competitor. At Performance Kia, our philosophy is not just selling cars; it is about satisfying our customers.

The 10th Anniversary of Performance Kia has been made possible thanks to the continued support of our valued customers, and I personally thank you for your business. Selling the Kia brand has proved to be both exciting and rewarding. In a few short years, Kia has proven itself as a top competitor in the auto industry and I am proud to have been included in such a venture.

We were awarded the Kia Franchise in March of 2000. With only two models to sell (the Sportage and Sephia), I was very surprised by the rapid growth and addition of new Kia models in such a short period of time. To date, the Kia lineup boasts twelve models, and we are proud to have sold over 3,000 new Kias in our market area.

Kia continues to grow at a phenomenal rate both in Canada and worldwide. Investing in a new state-of-the-art dealership was a bold move during our recent economic crisis; however, this investment was required in order to maintain customer satisfaction, and accede to the next level of extraordinary customer service.

With our dedicated professional staff and our beautiful new facility, we are ready to meet your new and pre-owned vehicle needs for sales, service and detailing. I invite you to stop by, meet our staff, and discover for yourself why we are so proud of our new facility. Explore our six-car showroom, drive-in service area and cozy customer lounge with a children’s play station, and don’t forget to stop by the KIA CAFÉ for a treat while you are here!

Enjoy a test drive from our expansive lineup and you will discover why Kia has the “POWER TO SURPRISE!” I am positive we will give you comfort and peace of mind that you have made, or will be making, the right choice.
