Hendy Group - which has franchises for Kia, Ford, Honda, Renault, Dacia, SEAT, Suzuki, Mazda and MG - designed the new, larger showroom on Southampton Road, near North Harbour, to exhibit nine newly released cars at a time when Kia's UK sales are at a record high.
The updated range, which includes popular models such as the Picanto, Rio and Sportage, will increase in size once again when the Kia Stinger GT fastback sports saloon goes on sale later this year.
Paul Hendy, chief executive of Hendy Group, said: 'Portsmouth is an extremely important location for the Group and this investment ensures we can offer customers the very best facilities.
'Kia is a highly popular range for buyers in the area and with some significant new launches this year, we are delighted to offer customers the ideal environment in which to see all Kia has to offer.
'Impressive sales figures so far in 2017 demonstrate how many motorists have put their trust in Kia. The Sportage continues to be the biggest seller and we are delighted to welcome the brand new Picanto to the range this spring.'
Shortlist is currently empty.
