Like its corporate cousin Hyundai, Kia delivers stylish and competent cars often sold for less than the competition. Over the last several years, Kia’s lineup has been thoroughly overhauled, and the result is a portfolio of cars and SUVs with modern design and excellent equipment levels for the money. Kia is in the process of sorting out its suspension tuning, and it shows in the Optima sedan, and the Sorento and Sportage SUVs that we have tested. Kia’s powertrain offerings generally deliver respectable acceleration and fuel economy. Reliability has been on the rise, with Kia ranked third among brands. And owner satisfaction is strong, as well.
