Our Story

The Power to Surprise

Cockram Kia is driven by ‘the power to surprise’. After opening our doors in 2010, we’ve grown leaps and bounds ever since, becoming a mainstream New Zealand brand. We’re excited to make Kia a part of your life. Whether it’s Kia’s trendy style, its world-renowned reliability (number one in JD Power Dependability Surveys), or perhaps the 5 year warranty, Kia vehicles seem to attract some really lovely and genuine people.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Kia family soon.
