Kia Models vs Volkswagen Models

Kia vehicles are built for fun, with audacious color options and striking design accents. They are also built to make your drive easier, whether it's the supreme fuel economy of the Kia Forte to the versatility of the Kia Soul to the raw power of the Kia Sorento. Find your favorite model(s) and take it for a spin, whether it's using one of these helpful model research pages or at our dealership.

Here's some additional benefits all Kia vehicles share:

  • Peace of Mind. All Kia models come with an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
  • Quality craftsmanship. Every model on the lot, from the Forte compact to the Sorento SUV, is a well-crafted ride. For example, five Kia models were highest-ranked in initial quality in their class in the 2017 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.
