Best Cars - US News rankings: 2020 Kia Forte, 2020 Kia Sedona, 2020 Kia Sorento, 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line
Kia is the recipient of four 2020 Best Car for the Money awards from U.S. News & World Report in four separate categories: the Forte won for best compact car; the Soul was best subcompact SUV; Sorento best 3-row SUV; and Sedona best minivan. The awards were handed out at the Washington Auto Show last week.

"Winning one Best Car for the Money awards is a great honor," said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America (KMA). "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."

Winners are chosen by the best combination of quality and value. Quality is determined by each vehicle's performance in U.S. News & World Report Best Car Rankings and value is measured by a combination of transaction prices and five-year total ownership costs.

U.S. News & World Report executive editor Jaime Page Deaton said, "Kia winning four Best Car for the Money Awards shows just how well the company's strategy of providing quality, feature-filled cars has paid off. In each category that Kia won, the model not only represented a great value in terms of price and ownership costs, but also in terms of providing a top-notch ownership experience."

Toyota took home three awards, including two for hybrids. The Toyota Corolla Hybrid won Best Hybrid or Electric Car for the Money, and the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid won Best Hybrid or Electric SUV for the Money. The Toyota Camry won Best Midsize Car for the Money for the third consecutive year and the seventh time since the awards began.

The Honda CR-V won the Best Compact SUV for the Money award for the fourth consecutive time and seventh time overall. Honda notched another win with the Honda Fit, which won Best Subcompact Car for the Money for the sixth consecutive year and eighth time overall.
