Kia Models vs Ford Models

While Kia vehicles are swiftly rising the ranks and winning awards that show they are the best available vehicles thanks to their fun design, cool tech, next-level safety features and money-saving fuel economy, titans still roam the Earth, like Ford vehicles. However, if you take a few minutes to check out our informative links that compare our Kia models with the Fords in their respective classes, you'll soon see why it's time for an upgrade with a Kia.

In addition, we also have included links to model comparison pages between Kia and Chrysler, Hyundai, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen, among others.  So if you're looking to see not only how the Kia Optima does vs. the Honda Accord, but how the Kia Sorento does vs. the Toyota Highlander, you're in luck.

Here's a few additional benefits of Kia vehicles:

  • All Kia models come with an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
  • Multiple award-winning vehicles, such as the 2017 Kia Sorento (IIHS Top Safety Pick), 2016 Kia Soul (U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Cars for Families, 2016 Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year) and 2016 Kia Optima ( "Best Buy for 2016"), to name a few of the awards.
