AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Criteria

The Ideal Vehicle Awards look at owner satisfaction. Over 65,000 owners of 2015 and 2016 model year vehicles were asked what they would change about their new vehicles, if they were able to change anything. The Optima and Sedona wins in their respective segments indicates that owners of these two new Kia vehicles had very little that they would change. Between great features, elegant style, and top-of-the-line initial quality, these Kia models offer premium satisfaction.
