Two Rows, Four Wheels, and Endless Possibilities: Our Favorite Used Kia SUV Options
For those among us who are looking to avoid higher up-front costs by purchasing a used Kia SUV, we’re here to help. As a used Kia dealer, we carry some of the best offerings in the fleet, all sold for prices that are sure to fit your budget. Today, we look at our favorite SUVs with two rows of seating and an undeniable level of quality. Whether you're a solo commuter or need a vehicle to haul the family, you'll find an SUV in our extensive pre-owned inventory that is sure to bring value to your daily travels while offering all the modern features you expect from one of the more recent model years. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite models that are available in our impressive selection of pre-owned Kia models.
The Kia Soul
You might remember the old commercials for the Kia Soul at the time of its debut, which featured hamsters driving around and cavorting while behind the wheel. The cuteness of the ad campaign certainly made Kia’s most affordable SUV a memorable one, and that’s been associated with it ever since. From the beginning, the Soul has used either automatic or manual transmission options. This combination has led to a vehicle with remarkable fuel efficiency, and its size makes it more than ideal for those who call the city limits home. Despite its diminutive size, the Soul has a spacious interior that makes every trip comfortable, regardless of destination. A variety of trims means you can choose what comfort level works best for you.
The Kia Sportage
If the Kia Soul appeals to you but needs just a little more space to facilitate your daily activities, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Kia Sportage is here to offer you everything you could ask for in a two-row SUV. Like the Soul, the Sportage has been equipped with a four-cylinder engine that emphasizes practicality and fuel economy more than high performance.
As the name suggests, the Sportage can be outfitted with AWD to help facilitate the adventures you plan on undertaking. Many of the used versions of the Sportage that we carry are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission for ideal performance both on the road and off. With over 60 available cubic feet of storage room and a spacious interior, you’ll have plenty of room for passengers or cargo, making it more than ideal for the rite of passage commonly called the family road trip.
The Kia Seltos
If the Kia Soul is too small for what you need and the Sportage is just a little too large for your taste, a solution exists in the form of the Kia Seltos. Competing against the likes of Mazda's CX line of crossover SUVs, the Seltos offers quite a bit in a single package. While it’s still a relatively new vehicle, as it debuted for the 2021 model year, finding a used version of the Seltos is still relatively easy.
In fact, getting a used Seltos from the 2021 model year is a great alternative to other options, such as the Subaru Forester or Mazda CX-5. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with AWD and a seven-speed automatic transmission made the Seltos an effective way to transport the family around town and embark on adventures during the weekend. A combined fuel economy of 27 MPG (25 MPG city/30 MPG highway) means effective transportation that won’t break the bank.
The Kia Niro
Available as both a PHEV and EV, the Kia Niro offers an affordable means of transportation that’s truly electrifying. The EV version has been on the market since the 2020 model year, so getting behind the wheel of a used version is certainly well within the realm of possibility. The PHEV version of the Niro is much easier to come across. With its combination of a four-cylinder engine and battery pack, you can go much further for less and save some much-needed pennies between fill-ups. As is the case with many of Kia’s offerings, the interior is generously spaced and places a high emphasis on comfort. The Niro has also received considerably high safety ratings over the years, allowing family-oriented drivers to have a discernible level of peace of mind during their travels.
The Kia Niro EV
We would be performing a great disservice if we didn't discuss the Kia Niro EV in a little bit more detail. Aside from offering drivers a stylish SUV that can help them avoid the pump altogether, the Niro EV has consistently been packed with a wide range of safety features. This means that getting behind the wheel of a used Kia Niro EV will place such items as navigation-based adaptive cruise control right at your fingertips for much less than what you would normally pay. By all accounts, the Niro EV has a fast charging time, meaning your journeys won't be hampered by long waits.
Going the Distance for Less Money
These SUVs are examples of how Kia can help you save on both fuel costs and upfront pricing. One conspicuous item by its absence during this conversation was one of the rudimentary parts of owning any vehicle, and that’s how much you’ll be spending on routine service to keep it on the road. You’ll be pleased to know that Kias's track record regarding repairs is nothing short of exemplary. The annual cost of maintaining a Kia stays below $1,000 for the first six years of ownership. The probability that a major repair will be needed is exceptionally low as well, with the experts at Car Edge determining that there’s less than an eleven percent chance that one will be needed. In fact, this probability rating is among the best in the industry and remains under 20 percent for a full decade; that’s dependability that you can trust.
