Kia Models vs Lexus Models
There are really two types of drivers we run into, looking to buy luxury vehicles. The first group walk through our showroom doors, ready to find any excuse to pick a different badge than Kia. They’re badge shoppers, more interested in showing off the make of their vehicle than the comfort, convenience or performance features the vehicle possesses. We’ve been able to sway a few, but nine times out of ten, their mind is made up before they come in.
The second type is more open to being surprised by the emphasis and focus Kia has placed on creating award-winning, stylish and performance-hungry vehicles in the last 5 years. While they’re not looking for a car that provides “economy value,” they’re interested in models that can provide equal or better amenities and specs to the conventional luxury brands.
If they can do so at a lower price, it’s all the better. Kia, after all, creates vehicles that have award-winning safety and durability. Their industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited power train warranty and 5-year/60,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranties are among the best available, while they’re models continue to win awards for design, engine technology and safety.
Kia Sorento/Telluride Vs. Lexus RX/GX
Road trips with the family are easy when you have a third-row SUV that provides class-leading comfort, entertainment features and easy-passing performance. The Kia Sorento gives drivers luxury features and style without the top-shelf price tag. In this comparison, we go up against the sporty third-row Lexus RX.
Kia Optima Vs. Lexus ES
Without a luxury brand, Kia has injected luxurious high-end styling into their flagship midsize Optima. The Optima gives drivers a luxurious style, range of high-value standard tech and safety amenities and performance options as well. In this comparison, we see the Optima pitted against the midsize Lexus ES.
Kia Sportage Vs. Lexus NX
Safety and Utility are hallmarks of the Small SUV segment, but when did it become okay to exclude “Sport?” In this comparison, we look at two models that both give drivers performance options, luxurious style and plenty of interior features.
Kia Cadenza Vs. Lexus GS/LS
Drivers who pay for large, luxury sedans expect the performance numbers to match the interior craft. With the 2018 Kia Cadenza and 2018 Lexus GS, this is the case. These vehicles provide the most cutting-edge executive experience inside and back up their craft with incredible performance numbers as well.
Kia Stinger/K5 Vs. Lexus IS
Luxury sports sedans exist to give drivers the best of all possible features. On the outside, they’re aggressive and hellishly styled, under the hood they’re held up by incredible performance and power components and inside they’re quiet, smooth and full of luxurious comfort and convenience technology.
Kia K900 Vs. Lexus LS
Luxury sedans aren’t for everybody. The combination of power, style and decadent interior refinement is reserved only for those who can appreciate the level of sophistication and timeless fashion at which they are crafted. In these pages, we compare Kia’s K900 luxury sedan to the Lexus LS.
