We know it can be overwhelming trying to choose between them so we have come up with a list of our top five best Kia vehicles for the cost-conscious.
If you are looking for a spacious crossover without going full SUV then the Soul is a great option. It is fuel-efficient with an EPA estimated 15 miles per gallon city and 31 miles per gallon highway. The 2.0-liter engine and 6-speed transmission help to keep your fuel economy down while still providing you with the amount of power you are seeking in a larger crossover design. The Soul would definitely be a great pick for someone looking to save some gas money.
The Kia Niro is a fantastic crossover that has been improved with hybrid technology. You get the space you desire and the hybrid fuel economy. The gasoline engine has been combined with a hybrid motor to get you the best of both worlds. The Niro offers a combined fuel economy rating of 50 miles per gallon. Your maintenance will be cheaper as the engine can go more miles between services as the electric motor is doing some of the work that the engine usually does.
A sedan with a comfortable, elegant interior and the performance you desire can be found in the Kia Optima Hybrid.
