When you are searching for a new car, you want to be sure to find a vehicle that gives you the most value for your money. Your purchase depends on what you need from your car, such as passenger space or storage capacity, which is why you want to compare models that are practical, affordable, and deliver everything on your list. Before you head out to your local Kia dealership in El Paso or Albuquerque for a test drive, be sure to research your options so you can find exactly what you want. The Kia brand was recently named the most affordable in Kelley Blue Book’s 5-year Cost of Ownership Ranking. Here are four Kia models that are perfect for the practical driver.
2015 Kia Forte Sedan
The 2015 Kia Forte sedan gets 26 city and 39 highway miles per gallon, helping reduce your gas expenses and letting you drive further between visits to the gas station. The Forte comes in two LX models, automatic or manual transmission and an EX option with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The car seats five, allowing you to drive your family around comfortably and still get the entertainment features you are looking for in a stylish ride. The average price of a 2015 Forte in Albuquerque is just over $18,000, according to Edmunds.com.
2015 Kia Optima
The 2015 Optima comes in a standard sedan model or a hybrid option , which allows you to reduce your environmental impact while driving one of the most satisfying cars available. The Optima gets a five-star consumer rating and 23/34 mpg (city/highway). It also seats five, but the base model LX has a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The base model has an MSRP of $22,450, but you can talk to your local Kia in Albuquerque or El Paso to find out about the turbo or hybrid editions.
2015 Kia Rio
The Rio comes as a sedan or hatchback and is more compact than the Forte and Optima. As a result, you can get a brand new Rio for under $15,000 with manual transmission. You save money on the 1.6L engine across the four variants of the sedan, which is perfect for those looking for a reliable vehicle that gets great gas mileage around town. The Rio is excellent as a first car, as well, because it is extremely affordable.
2015 Kia Soul
The Kia Soul continues to develop in a class to itself, as it looks like an SUV, but drives like a car. The spacious interior ensures that all of your friends and family can fit comfortably, with more than enough leg and headroom. Great gas mileage and ample trunk space are additional features that appeal to families and individuals who do not want to maneuver a larger vehicle. The 2015 Soul wagon is available starting under $16,000.
