The KIA was rated as the car with the best initial quality in 2016, beating top models like Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Audi and many others. Allentown KIA says this is a validation of the strides made by this South Korean car brand. Indeed, the KIA is becoming a favorite buy for many American families as it has all the qualities of a good family car. The top reasons buyers are going for KIA include:
1. Top value
Features that were previously found only in high end models like BMW can be found in the KIA. Heated rear seats, ventilated front t seats, and nappa leather are some of the features that come standard with the KIA which costs way below cars that made these features seem out of reach for the ordinary car owner. This has made the KIA get voted second on US New’s list of Best Valued Midsized cars.
KIA engaged top car interior designer Peter Schreyer who was previously at Audi to rework the interiors. The end result has been opulence in an affordable car.
2. Unbelievable warranties
The KIA has a warranty that is unmatched by American car makers. It offers a 10 year/100,000 miles warranty on the powertrain. It also offers a 5 year/60,000 miles bumper to bumper insurance. This has made the KIA achieve America’s best warranty status. Other fantastic features of this warranty include unlimited mileage roadside assistance for five years, and rust protection for 7 years.
3. Cute design
If you are looking for a compact car that is practical and fuel efficient, the KIA would be it. KIA cars are full of tech savvy features which make them greener, and are not too serious looking like its European competitors. The Veloster pack a punch and offer good handling while keeping its good looks.
4. High performance
The KIA Niro has a record for the lowest consumption among hybrid cars after going 3,715 miles on 4.1 tanks. KIA has been working with hybrid engines that deliver surprisingly good performance. The Veloster for example, has a turbocharged hybrid engine which delivers good acceleration when needed and achieves high efficiency at about 40 miles per gallon.
5. Good fit for the family
KIA Sedona is an example of the design that KIA has made with the family in mind. It comes with a car that has door angles comfortable for kids and adults alike, ride height that allows the driver and back seat passengers to have a good view of the road, and seats that fold sensibly.
