A look at our #BestNine Instagram Images of 2017
KIA Motors South Africa aims to build a vibrant community of Kia lovers on our social platforms. This is why we make a point of encouraging our customers to share their special Kia moments, whether it be to win prizes in our #LoveKia competition, or for the pure fun of it. A quick look at the KIA Motors Official Instagram Account will reveal a multitude of fan created Kia content which we take pride in sharing, provided we get permission of course.
Here are nine of our most popular instagram pictures along with the Kia family members that created them.
In ninth place we have one of the first images of the Stinger taken from its launch at the Detroit Motor Show. The Stinger was unveiled to great fan fare and has gone on to be nominated for both European and North American Car Of the Year Awards respectively.
In eighth place we have a beautiful shot of the KIA Rio in front of a mural taken on a media test drive event in Colombia.
The Rio is many things, eye-catching is one of them. A post shared by KiaMotorsSA (@kiamotorssa) on
Our seventh best instagram image comes courtesy of @marinos.mvw, taken while on a dirtbiking adventure with the Sportage GT-Line. Marinos is a prolific Kia driver, often sharing images of the different KIA vehicles he drives.
This image of Picanto posing proudly in front of Table Mountain takes sixth place of our instagram #Bestnine. The picture was taken by cinematographer, director and photographer @Timmy Henny, while shooting the Picanto for our Colour Your City online advert.

Nothing comes close to the pride an owner has for their brand new vehicle. @Amanda_msh showed her new pride and joy off with this image of her mean looking KIA Rio. Amanda can proudly say that she was one of the first to take delivery of a new Rio in 2017.

Prolific car photographer @dutchmanseb finds himself on our #BestNine list a second time with his striking image of this Picanto 1.2 SMART, while on our Picanto launch in Cape Town.
The Picanto seems to be a firm favourite amongst KIA fans, featuring a third time in our #BestNine with a close up image of a limelight Picanto 1.2l SMART taken by @dbn_spotter .
The most popular image on our instagram account in 2017 is this striking image of a one off KIA Stinger GT Federation. The federation was created by KIA America as a showcase vehicle at SEMA 2017. The Federation was equipped with updated aero, Borla exhaust system and upgraded suspension.
