Each year, AutoPacific releases their Vehicle Satisfaction Awards and this year three Kia brand vehicles made it on the list! Want to know which vehicles received this top honor? Keep reading for additional information!

The three vehicles that won are the 2016 Kia Optima in the midsize car segment, the 2016 and 2017 Kia Cadenza in the large car segment as well as the 2017 Kia Sportage Compact CUV in the compact crossover SUV category. These awards are based on responses from more than 54,000 owners for 2016 and 2017 vehicles. They rate vehicles in a variety of attributes – 49 to be exact – which include everything from interior comfort to performance. Then the final scores are added up and the winner emerges!

“[The] Kia [brand] is a leader in design, quality, technology and value, and the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are another validation of our world-class products and their ability to meet and exceed customer expectations,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America.  “As a two-time winner, [Kia] Optima illustrates that if you buy a Kia [vehicle], you are going to love it.  With [Kia] Cadenza and [Kia] Sportage also winning their categories, [the] Kia [brand] is delivering what buyers are looking for in any size of vehicle.”

George Peterson, president of AutoPacific gave a nod to the Kia Optima winning this award two years in a row – which is unprecedented! “[The Kia Optima] not only has eye-catching style, but also has the outstanding functionality midsize car buyers require.”

You can experience these vehicles for yourself at Folsom Lake Kia near the Sacramento, CA area. There are other new and pre-owned Kia vehicles in stock as well. So, we’ll find something that fits your fancy! We look forward to seeing you very soon.
