The 2018 Kia Rio, just recently launched and has already had a big win in the small car segment. It has been completely redesigned for the new model year with comfort and functionality in mind. The Kia Stinger, on the other hand, has been highly sought after for its performance and race-like appearance in the compact premium car segment.

“Whether it be a practical commuter car for people just looking to get from point A to B, or a sports sedan with up to 365-horsepower for enthusiasts, we design every Kia with the customer in mind,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, KMA. “Earning a J.D. Power APEAL award for both the Rio and Stinger demonstrates the level of dedication we put on delivering a superior combination of the desirable features and attributes today’s savvy car buyers want from their vehicles.”

The Kia brand’s overall score increased by eight points since last year, so it’s clear we’re on the right track, as we continue to cement our place among the top 10 non-premium brands.
