Kia Models vs Acura Models

Kia models are quickly rising to the top of the heap, with their fun style, nice fuel economy and performance that is tough to beat on an even playing field, let alone one where other automakers try to compete with Kia models' affordable prices! We have produced comparisons of Kia models with comparable vehicles from Acura, and as you will see in the linked pages, Kia models are not merely thousands of dollars less across the board, they also are more spacious on the inside, more fuel-efficient, and packed with more cutting-edge tech, like available Apple CarPlay and UVO eServices, which gives you access to streaming audio like Pandora, voice-command navigation, and more!

Some additional benefits of shopping with Kia:

  • Before we get started, here's an additional benefit all Kia models share: They come with an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
  • Kia also was the highest ranked brand in Initial Quality in the annual J.D. Power Initial Quality Study in both 2016 and 2017, with five models highest ranked in their class in 2017, including the Sorento SUV, Niro hybrid crossover, Soul hatchback, Forte compact, and the Cadenza large sedan (the Cadenza was also the highest ranked vehicle overall).
