Our Kia Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

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 20 of all models for value retention. What pulls Kia down, however, is their trifecta of the Sorento, Sedona and Cadenza, which finished #116, #117 and #118 respectively, near the bottom of the list for overall depreciation by year 5.

The 2018, 2017 & 2016 Kia model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 65% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Kia. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 18.49 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2016 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
