Here Is Every Car in Kia’s Lineup in 2023

Kia Stinger 2023

Some may have given up on the car in favor of SUVs, but there are a lot of manufacturers that think the automobile still has a place in the automobile industry, perhaps. Kia happens to be one of those manufacturers, and it’s a good thing. 


To be fair, some SUVs are really worth the money, while most of them are improperly called so because there are just not so many types of vehicles. The Subaru Outback is called a car, and it is more competent as an SUV than most SUVs are. Cars are usually more comfortable due to several factors, like the driving position and more stability, thanks to a lower center of gravity. Also, you can get more for your money cars which means they have a tendency to be more affordable than their equivalent in the SUV family.


Kia presented a lot of iconic cars over the year, and I think the Korean brand is offering one of the most interesting car lineups on the current market. They have everything from a very affordable subcompact car to a luxurious and sportier sedan. At this point, I think I will just present them to you one by one.


Rio - $19,909


Almost every new vehicle you can get today costs more than $30,000, and the average price of a new vehicle is well over $45,000 now. So a $19,909 car like the Kia Rio might sound like something cheap, but it isn’t. The Korean subcompact car has a lot to offer and a decent standard equipment. It’s elegant and quite comfortable too. It is one of the cars with the best value for what you get on the market.  


Forte and Forte 5 - $22,859


The Kia has always been a good choice. It offers a lot for its price, and it is a good-looking car too. It may not have a family name as big as some of its competitors, but it sure can compete with the name on any other level. The Forte and the Forte 5 are well-made, and they offer a better warranty than most rivals. The duo is as close as you can get to being a prestigious car without being one.  


K5 - $32,759


With a starting price of just over $30,000, the Kia K5 may be one of the most interesting intermediate sedans on the market. It is full of high-tech gadgets and smart technologies. The Korean sedan is also one of the most gorgeous cars currently available on the market. It used to be called Optima, but I think the Korean manufacturer made a bold move by giving it a more international name. It even comes in a GT performance variant powered by a 290 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder.  


Stinger $54,659


It is just a matter of time before the Stinger goes out of production, and this makes me sad. I have loved the sport sedan since its introduction on the market in 2017. The Kia Stinger presents an elegant and aggressive look, which helps to set it apart from other cars. The Korean sedan delivers quite impressive performance thanks to its turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 that produces 368 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. It is capable of reaching 100 km/h in less than 5.1 seconds. The Stinger is quite expensive, but it can rival any same-size luxury sedan.
