KIA Depreciation

Kia, wouldn't want to be ya'-at least when it comes to resale value. Kia falls in the bottom half when looking across popular vehicle manufacturers. The exception for Kia, is their Soul model, which ranked in the top 25 of all models for value retention. What pulls Kia down, however, is their trifecta of the Sorento, Sedona and Cadenza, which all fall at the bottom of the list for overall depreciation by year 5.

The 2020 is our top pick for the best model year value for the KIA vehicles. With the 2020, you would only pay, on average, 85% of the price as new, with 83% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2019 and 2018 model years are also attractive years for the KIA models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a KIA model.
