Kia Cars - Kia Prices

The South Korean car maker Kia (a subsidiary of Hyundai) has been selling cars in the United States since 1994. Kia has a reputation for building inexpensive SUVs, vans and cars that give excellent fuel economy and offer great value for the money in a competitive automobile market.

For 2013 Kia has introduced the Kia Forte, which is a small sedan that comes with front wheel drive and a front engine that packs quite a punch even on the basic model. The smallest engine size comes in 2.0 liter capacity with four cylinders that churns out an impressive 156 horse power, but for those of you who want that little bit extra under the hood then the Forte also comes with a 2.4 liter capacity which takes the horse power up to an ample 173. As for the transmission, the Forte comes with both a six speed automatic or manual option, and the fuel economy falls well within industry guidelines with anything between 23 miles per gallon to 37 miles per gallon depending on city or highway use.

The Kia Forte also comes in a 5-door and coupe version and some of the features of this car are impressive, such as a power folding mirror and airbags as well as anti-lock braking and traction control, meaning this car is the perfect choice for a small family car.

With a few minor cosmetic changes for 2013, the Kia Optima is a medium sized sedan those people who want something a little bit bigger than the Kia Forte. It comes with a standard 2.4 liter, 4 cylinder engine that produces an impressive 200 horse power, however, for those of you who want that little bit more power, the Optima also comes in a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that provides a whopping 274 horse power. Both engines come fitted with a six speed automatic transmission that has electronic assistance and produces a not too shabby mpg range of between 22 and 35.

Mostly unaltered for 2013 comes the Kia Rio, a small sedan that comes fitted with a fuel efficient 1,6 liter engine that provides a handy 138 horse power, and is the ideal small car for those looking to own a car for traveling across town. Despite the smaller engine size this handy little car still comes complete with a whole host of features, such as: Heated front seats and tire pressure monitoring, safety comes in the form of front airbags and anti-lock brakes.

The Kia Sorento is another car that has seen little alteration for 2013 and is a medium sized sports utility vehicle that comes in two different engine sizes. The standard is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 169 lbs of torque and 175 horse power. But, for those who like a little more power, you can opt for the impressive and powerful 3.5 liter V6 that will have you flying along with its 276 horse power and 248 lbs of torque. Front wheel drive comes as standard but you can also choose to have all-wheel drive and this comes with a six speed automatic gear box.

The Kia Soul was improved greatly during 2012, so for 2013 there is not much that is all that different, but this nice little hatchback does come with two engine choices, both 4-cylinders with a 1.6 or 2 liter capacity. The fuel mileage is mightily impressive and this handy little car can go as far as 36 miles to the gallon on highways and 26 miles to the gallon in urban areas.

For those of you who like to have a little bit of extra control, then the Kia Sportage is possibly the car for you. With its four-wheel drive option giving you better grip in icy and wet conditions. The engine sizes start with a powerful 2.0 liter but for better performance there is a 2.4 liter option and the six speed transmission comes in a choice of manual or automatic.

All brand new Kia cars come with a 5 year/60,000 mile warranty.
