Better Cars. Lower Costs. What’s Not to Love?


Cost Isn’t Just Sticker Price, and Kia Knows That

While budgeting for the monthly payments on a car is likely going to be the main consideration for most car owners, there are plenty of ownership costs that can easily sneak up on drivers. 

Gas, cleaning, and maintenance are all areas where it’s easy to spend a lot of money, especially if you’ve been driving your car for a while. We’ll talk more about maintenance in a second, but let’s take a look at gas mileage first.


Simply put: owning a Kia saves you money in a variety of ways, and one immediately apparent one is through fuel costs. The 2022 Kia Seltos features a whopping 35 MPG, and other models boast similarly impressive numbers. For example, the 2022 Kia Forte has an incredible 41 MPG, as does the 2022 Kia Rio. Even “lower-end” mileages, such as the 2022 Kia Stinger’s 32 MPG, are still well above other brands.


With gas prices looking increasingly spookier, it’s hard not to feel these benefits.


It’s worth noting that all of these awesome benefits aren’t the result of cost-cutting on Kia’s side. Rather, they’re the results of having an all-around intuitive and driver-friendly design. As any teenage driver can attest, you don’t have to be paying for gas to appreciate the difference good mileage makes—you can always appreciate both the environmental impact it makes and the added quality to your drive.


If You Play Your Cards Right, You Can Effectively Get a New Kia for Under $10,000

Let’s get one thing clear: if you see a brand-new 2021 Kia Telluride on the market for $8,000, then you should probably be nervous about buying it. While the sticker prices of new Kia cars are going to inevitably be more expensive than the $10K number we gave, there are a surprising amount of rebates and incentives that can make owning one significantly more affordable.


First and foremost, everyone knows that leasing a car is one of the most affordable ways to drive a brand-new Kia model, but not everyone knows just how competitive Kia’s leasing options are.


Making the switch to electric also can qualify you for all sorts of awesome incentives, both at a state and federal level. In addition to federal electric vehicle credits that can earn you up to $7,500 dollars in tax benefits, you can also potentially qualify through local programs as well.

Reliable Car = Fewer Repair Costs 

As we mentioned earlier, there are many, many ways to spend money on a car beyond simply owning it. Any driver who’s had to budget around a surprise repair bill knows they can be one of the biggest headaches of car ownership. Basic math means “the more your car breaks down = the more money you spend on your car.”


Thankfully, Kia flips the script on that. A combination of cutting edge engineering and sophisticated safety technology mean Kia cars spend significantly less time in the garage than their competitors. It’s not hard to see the benefit there: maintenance and repair occupy a much smaller percentage of your ownership costs when you opt for a new Kia. 


On the other hand, it also means you’ll be seeing the people at your Kia dealership service center less, so you’ll be missing out on some free coffee.
