Kia Dominates IntelliChoice’s 2020 CPO Awards

IntelliChoice, a MotorTrend Group subsidiary, has more than 30 years of experience in automotive research and data analytics. IntelliChoice uses this data to develop annual automotive awards; including the annual IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards. These awards help better inform active automotive shoppers in their purchasing decisions. [1]

The IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards compare the various Certified Pre-Owned programs offered by automakers. According to IntelliChoice, “IntelliChoice issues the industry’s only independent report card comparing Certified Pre-Owned programs.” [2] The IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards consist of several categories: Best CPO Program, Best CPO Warranty, and Best Used Cost of Ownership. The awards are also further broken up into “popular” and “premium” brand categories.

In this year’s 2020 IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards, Kia was best in all three “Popular” categories in the annual IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards.

Kia Certified Pre-Owned Program

Kia won in the Best Certified Pre-Owned Program, Popular category, which represents non-luxury vehicles with an overall median MSRP of under $42,000. This is Kia’s fourth win in this category, having won previously in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Kia is also number one in the Best Used Cost of Ownership, Popular category, awarded on strong used car brand value and CPO sales market penetration. IntelliChoice identified the Soul and Forte sedan as standouts in this category.

Kia also took the top spot in the Best Certified Pre-Owned Car Warranties, Popular category, based on Kia’s 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, plus 1 year/12,000 miles of comprehensive platinum coverage for CPO vehicles.

Debbie Eldridge, IntelliChoice database analyst, had the following to say about Kia’s CPO Achievement, “Used Kia vehicles have seen a marked improvement in their used ownership cost values this year over the numbers calculated in last year’s analysis. They rank in the top three for improvement in four of the seven ownership cost areas: financing, insurance, maintenance and in depreciation — where they score number one in improvement. These excellent ownership cost results along with a steady offering of special financing rates made the difference for Kia this year.[3]

Winning the 2020 IntelliChoice Certified Pre-Owned awards, helps solidify the fact that Kia’s Certified Pre-Owned program is industry-leading. Kia builds car to last, and their warranty backs that up. Kia’s 10-year/100,000-mile warranty program gives Kia owners added peace of mind against unforeseen service and repairs.
