Vehicle rankings were based on safety, reliability, and industry experts’ shared opinions, as well as the value each car offered to consumers. The value was a result of the vehicle’s five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle when US News & World Report announced the awards.
“The Kia Soul and Kia Sorento were both named as winners in our Best Cars for the Money Awards because both present excellent long-term value in their respective classes. The Soul stands out among compact cars for its abundance of cargo and passenger space and modern interior design, all for an excellent price,” said Colin Aylesworth, US News Senior Editor. “Like the Soul, the Sorento presents a great value to shoppers in the midsize SUV class. In addition to a great starting price, the Sorento offers user-friendly tech features, great fuel economy with its base engine, and available third-row seating.”
In addition to the value it bestows to consumers, the 2017 Soul Exclaim gains a 201-hp 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, an increase of 40 horsepower. The 2017 Sorento now offers a range of driver assistance features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and Dynamic Bending Lights.
