Kia Motors Nigeria has flagged off ‘Mega March Makeover’ promo, a service campaign aimed at providing top-notch bodywork and painting service for Kia owners at discounted costs.

The company explained in a statement that the new body shop initiative offers services to Kia owners to help them reinvent the look and feel of their cars without emptying their pockets.


Under the Mega March Makeover package, Kia Motors Nigeria is charging as low as N27, 000 and offering up to 45 percent discount on all body repairs and painting to customers while cutting process time through the new state-of-the-art paint booths at its service centres manned by highly trained and specialised body shop engineers.

Painting a car is an opportunity to restore its original look or even to try out a new look with a different colour. However, the Chief Operation Officer, Kia Motors Nigeria, Sanjay Tatpati, observed that with many roadside body shops using low-quality paints at cheap prices and the high cost of painting works from major auto dealers, more often than not, car owners are faced with the challenge of making the right choice.

Spray-painting any vehicle is a long process that involves special tools and skills, so it’s a job best left for professionals, he said. In view of this, Kia Motors Nigeria is determined to offer best-in-class painting at a discounted price as low as N27,000. From the basic painting such as few coats to showroom standard which includes sanding the bodywork down to bare metal, removing all of the rust and dents, and then applying up to 24 coats of high-quality paint, Kia’s body shop is equipped with ultramodern facilities to help restore car’s glory.

“As a leading auto brand in the country with increasing market share, our focus is on providing high quality, innovative products and above all solutions and offers to our growing customer base in Nigeria,” Tatpati said in a statement.

On the need to launch this initiative, he further stressed, “There are two primary goals. Number one is quality painting at affordable pricing. This is about a proper, highly professional repair for Kia vehicles that are on the road, and ultimately that correlates directly to our second objective: being customer-centric.”
