Which Kia Car Is Right for Me? 


If you ask Kia drivers to describe the vehicles they own, you may hear words such as dependable, long-lasting, and road-ready. With its commitment to quality and dedication to auto innovation, Kia continues to manufacture cars and SUVs that are built to handle the demands of today’s vehicle owners. If you’re considering buying a Kia, you might ask, “Which Kia is right for me?” Learn more about several Kia vehicle models that can suit your needs.

How Do I Choose Which Kia Is Right for Me?

Before visiting our dealership, consider what you want in a Kia vehicle. Use the following questions to help guide your decision-making:

  • Do you need ample room inside the car for passengers and cargo space? 
  • Do you enjoy outdoor recreational pursuits, such as off-roading?
  • Are you committed to sustainability and eco-consciousness and want to purchase an electric or hybrid vehicle?
  • Are you an urban dweller, or do you call a place in the country your home base?

Additional factors in selecting a Kia vehicle include fuel economy, towing capacity, and safety and technology features. Consider your lifestyle and how you’ll use the vehicle when researching various Kia models. 

A Kia Vehicle That’s Perfect for a Family

Kia is known for offering vehicles families can rely on for all their adventures together. When compiling its “Best Family Cars of 2022” list, Parents magazine chose the 2022 Kia Carnival as its top pick for the best new minivan, noting that the vehicle “drives more like an SUV than a minivan.” 

The editors of Parents found that the 2022 Kia Carnival offered seating for up to eight people. Sliding doors and slide-and-fold center-row seats make it easy for passengers to enter and exit this multipurpose vehicle. Five LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) systems provide plenty of places throughout the vehicle to secure child safety seats. An adaptive driver-assist system numbers among some of the many technology elements that enhance the vehicle’s safety features.  

The Ultimate Off-Road SUV

In June 2023, U.S. News & World Report named Kia America among the “Best SUV Brands” for 2023. This recognition reflects vehicle manufacturers who have earned top scores for safety, predicted reliability ratings, fuel economy ratings, and available features. The 2023 Kia Telluride garnered “Best Three-Row SUV for Families.” 

The midsize Kia Telluride offers a comfortable interior with three rows of seats for up to eight passengers. Its 3.8-liter V-6 engine delivers 291 horsepower. The X-Line and X-Pro trims for the Telluride make this SUV a desirable off-road vehicle, with a 5,500-pound towing limit on the X-Pro and front and rear bumpers designed for more clearance off-road.  

Kia Models That Impress Everyone 

Kia vehicles are as stylish as they are reliable. If you want a car that impresses everyone, look at the 2023 Kia Stinger. With its long hood, raked windshield, and low-slung cabin, the Kia Stinger gives the impression of a vehicle in constant motion. A sleek interior complements the Kia Stinger’s exterior with metallic accents, a standard leather interior with an available upgrade to nappa leather trim seat, and plenty of technology features compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Drivers will also be impressed by this vehicle’s 2.5-liter turbocharged engine with 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque.

The electrifying 2023 Kia EV6 delivers impressive power and performance from a five-passenger sport crossover vehicle. Its aerodynamic surfaces offer sleek lines and attractive styling for its exterior, while the spacious interior features a cargo compartment under the center console. Ambient cabin lighting pairs with 12.3-inch dual panoramic displays for a combined 24 inches of display area for entertainment and navigation. The Kia EV6 bears an all-electric drivetrain with select trims, such as the GT-Line all-wheel-drive model, delivering 446 lb-ft of torque for a zero to 60 mph time of 4.6 seconds. 

Kia Vehicles for Urban Drivers

Life is busy, and you need a vehicle to keep up with all the tasks on your to-do list. Kia vehicles are ideal for urban drivers seeking fuel-efficient, reliable rides.

The 2023 Kia Sportage is a compact crossover that suits the needs of busy parents and professionals. Enjoy 40 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back seat and a dual-level cargo floor for even more storage and transportation capability. All-wheel-drive models have an EPA rating of 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Front-wheel-drive models feature a 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway rating. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission delivers 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. 

Another member of the Kia crossover family, the 2023 Kia Soul emphasizes passenger and cargo space. Close to 62.1 cubic feet of cargo volume inside the vehicle can fit all your groceries, sporting goods equipment, and whatever else you carry without sacrificing passenger legroom. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 147 horsepower and up to 132 lb-ft of torque to tackle your tasks easily. The Kia Soul has an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg with city and highway driving combined.  

The sporty 2023 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback will help you get everything done. Standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats provide plenty of room for passengers to spread out during a drive with cargo combinations to maximize available space inside the vehicle. The Rio 5-Door hatchback has a wide hatch opening and a low lift-over height to make loading and unloading as streamlined as possible. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine offers 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque. Enjoy an EPA-estimated 32 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and a combined 36 mpg city and highway driving.
