Kia Sweeping Awards for Best Car for the Money

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019


The new year is only two months in, but Kia Motors has already begun to blow us away with the 2019 Kia Niro EV, the electric vehicle (EV) variant of the original Kia Niro hybrid crossover, the debut of the 2020 Kia Telluride at the 2019 NAIAS, and autonomous technology concepts at the 2019 CES designed in conjunction with their parent group company, the Hyundai Motor Group. Speaking of which, both Hyundai and Kia Motors popped up on the “2019 Best Cars for the Money” list by U.S. News & World Report. As some may know, this accredited publication doesn’t mess around when it comes to their yearly lists, and the “Best Cars for the Money” is one to get attention.

SUVs and Minivans

Winning “Best 3-Row SUV” is the 2019 Kia Sorento, built with an upscale cabin, seating capacity of seven, and a low starting price of $26,290 (plus destination fee). Even the base trim, L, comes with UVO play on a 7-inch touch screen with a six-speaker system, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay at that price. Runner-ups, or finalists in this category consisted of the Kia Sportage for “Best Compact SUV” and the Kia Sedona for “Best Minivan”.
