Why Should I Buy a Kia?

Kia Motors was ranked highest among all popular brands in the 2016 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) and placed fifth overall in the industry, ahead of luxury brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. In addition, three Kia vehicles, the 2016 Soul, Optima and Sedona, were all named segment winners in the VSAs, which identify the most satisfying cars and automotive brands in the market.  

AutoPacific’s VSAs identify the most satisfying vehicles for sale in the U.S. market and assist new-car buyers in making informed vehicle purchase decisions. The results are based on responses of over 65,000 surveys completed by owners of new, model year 2015 and 2016 vehicles. The survey measures owners satisfaction through numerous attributes ranging from interior comfort and convenience to fuel economy and performance. The Kia Soul tops all compact cars for the third straight year, while the Optima is named Best in Class Mid-Size Car and the Sedona won the minivan category.
