Moreno Valley Welcomes New Kia Dealership
For immediate release: July 29,2019
The City of Moreno Valley is excited to announce the decision by Car Pros to open a 41,511 sq. ft. Kia auto dealership and 23-vehicle service facility at the northeast corner of Moreno Beach Drive and Auto Mall Drive in the Moreno Valley Auto Mall.
“When Kia approached us about the opportunity in Moreno Valley, we couldn’t have been more excited," said Car Pros CEO Matthew Phillips. "We love what’s going on in this town. We love the location and the growth in population and jobs.”
Car Pros has been named the top Kia retailer in the nation for franchised dealerships, having sold more than 100,000 new vehicles.
Phase 1 of the recently approved dealership will include a state-of-the-art 23,858 sq. ft., two-story automotive showroom and service facility. Phase 2 will add 17,653 sq. ft. to the dealership to expand the showroom and office space and supplement the service facility with 10 more vehicle bays.
“We are very pleased to welcome Car Pros Kia to our City,” said Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian A. Gutierrez. “Car Pros Kia is a strong company known for its great deals and customer service."
Mayor Gutierrez noted that the new Car Pros Kia will generate new tax revenue for the City and is expected to employ up to 100 people.
Construction is set to begin later this year with an anticipated opening date of summer 2020.
