  • 2016 Kia Soul: "Highest Ranked Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle in Initial Quality" by J.D. Power
  • 2016 Kia Sportage: "Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality" by J.D. Power

How do we do it? We have cars that are as reliable and durable as they are fun and tech-savvy. Continue reading and you'll find a closer look at these two models that performed so well in the 2016 J.D. Power IQS.

Please Note: While the 2016 Kia Sportage was highest ranked in the 2016 IQS, the redesigned and improved 2017 Kia Sportage is already wowing car shoppers and widely available on lots, so we'll include specs from that model here.
