Kia offers personality and style that are unlike any other automotive brand on the market. Kia has perfected its unique range of vehicles over the years and has steadily implemented new models into the mix. The most recent additions to the Kia lineup – the K5, Telluride, and Seltos – have been claiming attention and awards since their introduction. As the Kia brand has changed its model range over the years, its commitment to offering affordable and stylish vehicles has remained steady.
Kia and Nissan have become bigger and bigger rivals over the years as both brands continue to introduce new models into the market. We have paired many of our Kia vehicles up against Nissan offerings and now we are looking at the brands overall.

Both Kia and Nissan are best known for their ranges of SUVs and crossovers. The fan-favorite Kia Soul, Sorento, and Sportage are some of the most popular models here on the Friendly Kia lot. These top models are often pitted against the Nissan Kicks, Rogue, and Murano.
When shoppers consider their next vehicle one of the top priorities is often finding a vehicle that fits within their budget. The Kia lineup keeps its models affordable at every level and offers some of the best deals available on the market. While Nissan has some attractive starting prices, anything above base level starts to get a steep price.
The Kia brand offers more IIHS Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ winners than the Nissan brand and offers longer warranty periods to keep drivers covered. With this on top of the attractive lineup of safety and driver assistance features in the Kia Drive Wise suite, Kia is an easy choice for so many Tampa Bay drivers.
