Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, Kia spent $90.8 million on measured media in 2013. The overwhelming majority of this, $78.7 million, was allocated to broadcast spend.  $9.7 million was dedicated to print ads, while out-of-home, radio and digital made up the remaining spend.  Note that Hispanic media accounted for 2% ($1.8 million) of Kia’s spend in 2013.
