Kia is South Korea's oldest car company, but U.S. buyers have only had the pleasure of buying its vehicles for a little over two decades. In that time, Kia has quietly become one of the best-performing brands in the country. It is rising in popularity every year thanks to its diverse selection, stylish vehicles and low costs.
Visit the Kia dealer Miami residents trust, Miami Lakes Automall, to learn more about the affordable and diverse selection that Kia has to offer.
Model for model, Kia is one of the best values around. Whether you are looking at a compact sedan or you want a crossover that will seat your entire growing family and maybe a friend or two, you'll find a great option with Kia that will come in thousands less than the competition. When you are working with a tight budget, you will find many wonderful options at your local Miami Kia dealer.
Just because you save money with a Kia doesn't mean that you will sacrifice either style or quality. Kia vehicles range from modest compacts to flashy crossovers. The Kia Optima and K900 are stylish sedans that you would feel proud to be in when picking up a date or business clients. The Kia Sorento, Sportage and Sedona offer stylish, family friendly options. You can even get stylish, eco-friendly options with the Optima Hybrid or the Soul EV.
Kia vehicles are outfitted with some of the most cutting edge features on the market, such as blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, forward collision warnings, premium audio systems, heated and ventilated seats, and much more.
When you shop your Kia dealer in Miami, you'll find an array of vehicles that rival the competition but come in far under price, offering you an unparalleled value.
One of the best ways to understand how much Kia has to offer is to compare some of its individual models to the competition.
The Kia Optima is one of the most popular models in the lineup. This midsize sedan competes with models like the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata and Mazda 6. These models have a similar style, size, features lineup and price.
The Optima is a sensible sedan in that it meets your needs at a low price, but it also has a stylish flair and is packed with features. It has an Inline 4 engine that gets 20 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, which is within a few miles of the competition. At $21,690, it comes in under the cost of the Ford Fusion but is only a few hundred more than the Hyundai Sonata and the Mazda 6.
The Kia Cadenza is another midsize sedan in the class, but it is a more luxury model. The Toyota Avalon is one of its top competitors. The Cadenza offers upscale features such as a panoramic camera, a panoramic sunroof, LED interior lighting, USB ports in the rear armrest, and an advanced technology package. The Avalon offers similar tech features, but the Cadenza outshines it in standard offerings.
The Cadenza is outfitted with a 3.3-liter V6 engine that delivers fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is only a couple of miles less than the Avalon.
The Cadenza starts at $35,600, while the Avalon starts at about $34,000. Though the Cadenza is priced slightly higher, it offers more features as standard, offering a better overall value.
Another popular model is the Kia Sorento, a seven-seat crossover that compares to the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and the Toyota Highlander. The Sorento has a 3.3-liter engine that puts out 290 horsepower, which is the same as the Grand Cherokee but is 20 horsepower more than the Toyota Highlander. It gets 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which is a mile more than each of its rivals.
The Sorento features more passenger room and cargo volume, and many luxury features are standard, such as leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, surround-sound audio, an infotainment display, a rear-view camera, a panoramic sunroof, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and back up warning.

Kia is continuing its tradition of excellence and has some exciting models on tap for 2016.
The new Kia Optima will be available later this year at Kia dealers. Miami residents will love the sculpted new look that includes a slimmer front grille, more high tech head lights and tail lights, and a low arching roofline that creates a sleek aerodynamic profile. The interior will feature a more streamlined design that includes soft-touch materials and less clutter on the dash. The larger size will also provide more leg room, head room and trunk space.
With the 2016 Optima, buyers will also enjoy improved fuel economy, a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission, bi-functional head lights that adapt to road conditions, and an assortment of other tech and safety features.
Another exciting model we're looking forward to in 2016 is the updated Sorento. The new design includes a longer and wider platform, sculpted body panels, bolder and more intense front lighting and new wheel designs. The passenger and cargo space have both been improved.
The 2016 Kia Sorento will also get an updated engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter Inline 4 that puts out 240 horsepower, reduces emissions, twos up to 5,000 pounds and performs better even in cold weather.
Convenience and safety features include a 12-speaker premium audio system, a touch screen infotainment system, parent monitoring services such as Speed Alert and Curfew Alert, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert and a panoramic camera.
The 2016 Kia Sorento is poised to dominate the three-row crossover market, as did its predecessors.
