Kia's Greatest Vehicles of the Decade


This decade has been one of great development and growth for Kia and has enabled the manufacturer to establish itself as one of the best carmakers out there.

Let’s take a look at the best vehicles of Kia in this entire decade:

Kia Sorento
Kia’s decade started out with the successful release of the second generation Sorento. This version of the Sorento had third-row seating and Kia’s patent Tiger Nose grille and was the first Kia model ever to be equipped with Kia UVO.

Kia Forte
Kia has claimed multiple times that the Forte was designed keeping in mind younger buyer preference for sporty designs. The Forte was released to the American market in 2010 and has remained a popular option ever since.

Kia Soul
The Soul is a subcompact crossover SUV associated with a smooth, sturdy ride and unique design elements. It gained fame as a fabulous offering owing to the ample space and large cargo room.

Kia Optima
The Optima is a mid-sized sedan that took the market by rage with its release in 2010. It is equipped with the unique Tiger Nose grille of Kia, boasts a sporty and sleek design, and delivers a power-packed performance.

Kia Sportage
The Sportage has long been one of the veterans of the compact crossover SUV segment. The third generation of the Kia Sportage was released at the start of this decade and has gone on to see a couple more upgrades since then. What has remained the same, however, is its unending popularity amongst an extensive customer base.

Kia Niro

The Niro is one of Kia’s biggest successes of the decade. The only hybrid model on this list, it first went into production in 2013. The car was finally released to the public in 2017 and retained its reputation as a recommended choice ever since. A plug-in version of the Niro was launched in early 2018, and the electric version was revealed in 2019.
