The Kia Concord is a four-door sedan manufactured and marketed by the South Korean multinational car manufacturer Kia from 1987 to 1995.

History of the Kia Concord

First introduced in April 1987, the Concord received the carburetted 99 PS (73 kW) 2L petrol FE engine. During 1988, the engine program was expanded considerably, with the 72 PS (53 kW) 2L diesel "RF" added in April, a 1.8L (F8) in May, a fuel-injected version (called the 2.0i DGT) added in July, and finally, an LPG powered 1.8 for taxi usage added in August. This expansion allowed Concord to better compete with the Hyundai Sonata. The DGT's name was a reference to the digital dashboard with which it was fitted. After the 1991 facelift, the engine program was somewhat restricted, but in March 1992 a comparatively powerful DOHC version of the 2.0 was added, with 139 PS (102 kW) at 6000 rpm. The smaller and simpler Capital continued a little while longer as a low-priced alternative when the production of the Kia Concord ended in 1995.


The price range for a used Kia Concord varies based on the trim level you choose.
