Buyer's Guide

Kia

Kia builds vehicles focused on value, but in recent years, the brand has worked to enhance its products' style, equipment, and performance. The automaker still competes at the entry level but now creates some cars that are legitimately luxurious or fun to drive.

Least Expensive: With a starting price below $17,000, the Rio sedan is the least expensive Kia on sale. The Rio is also available as a hatchback, but it costs about $1,000 more.

Most Expensive: $60,000? For a Kia? The K900's starting price might raise eyebrows, but it's actually a decent value for the right buyer. Its comfort and quality rival European luxury sedans, at a fraction of the cost.

Most Fun to Drive: The name says it all. With its RWD chassis, turbocharged engine options, and sport-tuned suspension, the Stinger feels poised and ready to strike. Its unconventional hatchback cargo area makes it fairly practical, too.

Best Fuel Economy: Scoring up to 50 mpg combined, the Niro hatchback is the most fuel-efficient Kia. The Niro is also available as an all-electric vehicle with 239 miles of range between charges and an EPA-rated 112 mpg-e.
