When it comes to high quality, Kia is one of the best auto brands you can choose. In the J.D. Power 2021 U.S. Initial Quality Study, Kia vehicles topped five car, SUV, and van segments — more than any other automaker.
The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study surveys thousands of people every year about problems they experience during the first 90 days of vehicle ownership. This data is translated into a score that reflects the number of problems experience per 100 vehicles.
In addition to its study-leading number of winning vehicles, Kia ranked sixth in initial quality among the more than 30 auto brands that were included.
In the Compact Car segment, the Kia Forte finished above competitors like the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla. The Kia Sedona minivan beat out its Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna rivals.
An impressive total of three Kia SUVs won their segments. The Soul boasted the best initial quality among Small SUVs. The Sportage won in the highly competitive Compact SUV segment. The Telluride finished atop Upper Midsize SUV challengers like the Chevrolet Traverse and Toyota Highlander.
With their intuitive technologies, dependable performance, and durable design, Kia vehicles make a great choice for quality-conscious shoppers. Learn more about the high-value Kia lineup by visiting Gossett Kia in Memphis, Tennessee.
