Kia Sportage

The Kia Optima, Sportage and Cadenza have all been honored by AutoPacific in their prestigious "2017 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards."

Each model beat out the competition in the midsize car, large car and compact crossover SUV categories, thanks to their exceptional designs, top-notch technology and top-of-the-line power.

This is the second time that the Kia Optima has taken home the grand prize, cementing its status as a highly competitive and sought-after sedan that drivers around the Phoenix area love.

“Kia’s performance in our Vehicle Satisfaction Award research shows that Kia’s new products are more-than-competitive in their product segments,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “It is tough to win AutoPacific’s VSA two years in a row and Kia Optima’s performance shows it not only has eye-catching style, but also has the outstanding functionality midsize car buyers require."


The latest Kia Optima comes with a variety of excellent features, including 18-inch chrome alloy wheels, LED dual-projection headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also comes available with several advanced safety systems like forward collision warning, lane departure warning and advanced smart cruise control.


The fourth generation of the Kia Sportage gets some truly terrific driving assistance amenities that have improved driving dynamics behind the wheel. The crossover also comes with a gorgeous cabin that boasts even more convenience technology and more soft-touch, luxury materials.


Kia’s luxury sedan is full of premium features at a very cost-friendly price. They include everything from a 3.3-liter V6 that produces 290 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque to dual-zone climate control and leather seating. Advanced safety features like those found on the Optima are also present, as are highly innovative features like autonomous emergency braking.
