At the start of August 2022, we expanded our group once again, becoming proud representatives for Kia in Scunthorpe, with our brand new showroom on Mannaberg Way. As a group we are one of the UK's largest suppliers of Kia Approved Used Cars which are hand selected by Kia and undergo a full inspection before being made available exclusively to the Kia dealer network.
