Both Forte & Cadenza Named Best in Class in Their Respective Segments

Many of our Tulsa-area, new car shoppers are gravitating towards Kia’s line-up of industry-leading SUVs; like the all-new, three-row Kia Telluride, and the ever-practical Kia Sorento. However, many shoppers still want the comfort, fuel efficiency, and affordability that sedans offer. Kia has some great, award-winning sedans, in their line-up. Two of them, the Kia Forte and Kia Cadenza, were just named “Best In Class,” in their respective segments, by AutoPacific.

Kia Motors America celebrates a double Autopacific win, as the 2019 Forte sedan and the 2019 Cadenza have been named segment winners in the 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA).

AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards identify the most satisfying vehicles in the market based on responses from over 50,000 new car and light truck owners. The VSAs objectively measure owner satisfaction with 32 separate attributes ranging from driving performance to seating comfort and interior design. Ratings are based solely on owner input. [1]

George Peterson, President of AutoPacific, Inc., had the following to say about Kia’s high marks, “Winning AutoPacific’s Best in Class Vehicle Satisfaction Award takes a special kind of vehicle…Kia owners are very satisfied with the products they have acquired and the value they represent.” [2]

Michael Cole, chief operating officer and executive vice president, Kia Motors America said, “With Forte and Cadenza winning their categories, Kia has proved it’s delivering exactly what buyers want in their vehicles, whether it’s a compact commuter vehicle or a larger, more luxurious sedan.” [2]
