When commenting on these impressive achievements, Michael Cole – the president of Kia Automobiles had these to say;

“Winning one Best Car for the Money awards is a great honor,”

“Winning four is fantastic. It’s Kia’s mission to provide consumers with desirable high-quality vehicles at the best value, and so this recognition from U.S. News & World Report is tremendously gratifying.”

The winners for each category of this award are chosen based on a careful combination of value and quality. The Quality of each model is usually determined by the car’s performance in the World Report and U.S. News “Best Car Rankings” while the value is measured by combining 5-year total ownership costs as well as transaction prices.

The year 2020 is looking really good for Kia as this new success came just after the Kia Telluride, as well, won the 2020 NACTOY (North America Utility Vehicle of the Year).

“It solidifies years of effort on behalf of every Kia employee to build vehicles consumers desire and industry experts value. Winning the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year is an honour that marks Kia’s arrival in the top tier of the world’s automotive manufacturers.”
