Four Kia Vehicles are Awarded Best-in-Class

  • 2020 Forte, Soul, Sorento and Sedona are chosen for outstanding value and quality
  • Kia wins more 2020 Best Car for the Money awards than any other brand

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 23, 2020 — Today, at the Washington Auto Show, Kia received four 2020 Best Car for the Money awards from U.S. News & World Report in four separate categories: the Forte won for best compact car; the Soul was best subcompact SUV; Sorento best 3-row SUV; and Sedona best minivan.

“Winning one Best Car for the Money awards is a great honor,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America (KMA). “Winning four is fantastic. It’s Kia’s mission to provide consumers with desirable high-quality vehicles at the best value, and so this recognition from U.S. News & World Report is tremendously gratifying.”

Winners are chosen by the best combination of quality and value. Quality is determined by each vehicle’s performance in U.S. News & World Report Best Car Rankings and value is measured by a combination of transaction prices and five-year total ownership costs.

U.S. News & World Report executive editor Jaime Page Deaton said, “Kia winning four Best Car for the Money Awards shows just how well the company’s strategy of providing quality, feature-filled cars has paid off. In each category that Kia won, the model not only represented a great value in terms of price and ownership costs, but also in terms of providing a top-notch ownership experience.”
