U.S. News & World Report released its Best Choices for a New Car list not long ago. Five Kia models stand among the top 28 new cars of 2018. The editors made their choices based on the car’s price, cost of ownership, and predictability rating as determined by J.D. Power.
Of the 28 cars on the list, the 2018 Kia Soul stole the show and secured the number one spot. The Kia Soul earned a reliability score of 5/5 and an overall score of 9.1/10. The family model earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and boasts an affordable starting price.
The Kia Sportage boasts supportive seats and high safety scores. Those two factors netted it the top spot on the Best New Cars for Teens list. Those same features landed it a spot among the top 28 choices for a new car too!
The 2018 Kia Niro earned recognition for its high fuel economy, and the spacious cabin makes it ideal for family vacations. Plus, its nimble handling and exhilarating performance prove the Kia Niro can be great for daily commutes.
The Kia Rio came in second on the Best Choices for a New Car list. The editors noted its smooth performance, affordability, and intuitive technology as winning factors.
When it comes to compact cars, the Kia Forte holds its own. Excellent fuel economy and a quiet cabin put it a touch above competitors, netting the Forte a spot on the list.
