New Kia Lineup Offers Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

February 27th, 2012 by

Kia Optima

Interested in getting the most out of your next vehicle? Of course you are. You’re a savvy consumer, right? That is, after all, the reason why we’ve decided to write this post today, outlining the fact that Kelley Blue Book recently named Kia as the brand boasting the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO), in their aptly-named Total Cost of Ownership Awards.

As for what this means for you, the car buyer… It means that when you finance or lease a new Kiayou can rest assured that you’re getting the best in terms of dependability, fuel economy, and resale value. What’s more, it means that aside from servicing your Kia routinely with Kia parts, you won’t have to worry about costly repairs and breakdowns, as the company boasts among the most solid build quality in the world today.

Of course, we’re guessing that you’d like to know which new Kia models wowed the people at Kelley Blue Book the most, right? That would be the 2012 Kia Soul. It won the individual award for lowest total cost of ownership in the compact car segment. The organization also specifically mentioned 2012 Optima and 2012 Sportage for giving drivers more while they pay less.

“As the non-luxury brand winner, Kia tops all manufacturers for low average total ownership costs,” said Juan Flores, director of vehicle valuation for Kelley Blue Book. “With a number of successful redesigns, greatly improved quality, superior fuel economy and competitively priced models, Kia sets itself apart.”1

No matter how many awards Kia wins, however, we know that you’ll likely want to take your next vehicle for a test drive to measure its quality yourself.
