BayCity Kia has been operating in Barrie and surrounding area since 1999. The Barrie franchise was one of the first Kia franchises awarded in Canada. The dealership is owned by Jim Williams Leasing Limited who has been in the automobile sales and service business in Simcoe County since 1987.
The first location of the dealership was at 176 Bradford Street when the dealership first opened in October 1999. After many successful years at that location the dealership relocated in June 2005 to newly renovated facilities across the street at 165 Bradford Street. That new facility was one of the first to be built or renovated to meet the new Kia Canada National Image Program.
In February 2011, BayCity Kia relocated to the Mapleview Auto Mall in Barrie's south end into a new and modern facility. Shortly after that an expansion was started to increase the size of the showroom and renovate the building to the Kia Canada National Image Program. The dealership carries a full representation of new Kia vehicles, all of which have the Kia industry leading 5 year warranty. BayCity also stocks a full selection of pre-owned cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles all of which are certified to meet Ontario government standards by our factory trained licensed technicians.
The dealership strives to be a leader in customer satisfaction and is a strong believer in continuing industry education and training for all of its employees in an attempt to serve its customers better. BayCity Kia is proud of its intimate environment and in this dealership you are not just a number...we get to know you and you get to know us. The dealership is big enough to get the job done...yet small enough to make you feel like family.
We are proud to say "our low overhead saves you money...and we prove it every day!"
BayCity Kia is a community supporter of many local causes including MADD, the Rotary Club of Barrie, Barrie Christmas Cheer, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Heart and Stroke Society, Military Family Resource Centre and many others.
