Much like its "The Power to Surprise" tagline suggests, Kia (along with its parent company Hyundai) continues to change American car buyers' impressions of Korean vehicles. Part of the success can be attributed to the brand's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, while the rest falls on the increasingly stylish shoulders of affordable vehicles.
Kia Rio sedan is the company's least expensive used car model; the five-door Kia Rio5 adds a bit more flare. Next up are the funky Kia Soul, the Honda Civic-fighting Kia Spectra and Kia Spectra5, the Kia Rondo wagon with an available third-row seat, and the larger Kia Optima sedan (available in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid varieties). Atop the heap resides the Kia Cadenza and Kia K900, a further representation of Korean luxury.
Strutting their stuff alongside the lineup of used Kia cars are the Kia Sedona minivan, the compact Kia Sportage SUV and the mid-size Kia Sorento SUV.
