Kia in turn didn’t get to any of those ‘worst’ lists and therefore its new models even though not that expensive and not getting to the highest premium classes are still very reliable and therefore the owner can be sure that first three years of operation after the purchase will be very smooth and easy! The best models were new Kia Rio and Cee’d.
