Kia SUVs & Vans
List of highly popular Kia minivans and SUVs on sale in the USA!
Kia Motors Corporation has received numerous awards in recent years, but perhaps none as significant as being named onto the list of best global brands by Interbrand.
It was that recognition, perhaps more than any of the others, which let the Koreans know that people were finally beginning to take notice of their meteoric rise.
Some will say that the change in fortunes began with the arrival of the Kia Soul in 2009, but if you look across their entire line-up, you will see that great design and quality amenities are pretty much standard across the board.
Let’s have a look at the new 2016 Kia SUV and crossover vehicle models, as well as their latest minivans and MPVs.
- SPORTAGE: Kia Sportage is a compact crossover vehicle. For more details on Sportage click here.
- SORENTO: Kia Sorento is a mid-size crossover vehicle (or SUV) manufactured by Kia Motors since 2002. For more details click here.
- CARENS/RONDO MPV: Kia Carens is a compact multi-purpose vehicle also marketed as Rondo in several countries. For further details on Carens and Rondo click here.

While the compact car hatchback and midsize sedan segments are the ones that draw the most attention, the SUV and minivan market is on a rise, too.
It is here where you get an idea of why Kia has become so beloved as a global brand.
It’s not just that they offer a great selection of vehicles in the larger categories, it’s that they take the time to deliver something special for the specific market that they are going into.
For those that want the versatility of an SUV, but not necessarily the size that comes with it, Kia offers the incredibly popular Sportage.
This is a vehicle that falls in the midsize scale of the SUV segment, but which acts as though it’s one of the big boys.
It has plenty of power under the hood, and the all-wheel drive capabilities that it comes with make it perfect for driving in a wide variety of road conditions. It’s easy to understand why the Sportage is such a big hit for Kia.
Heading into the van category, Kia has a number of options, the newest of which we will get to in a moment.
This great looking vehicle comes loaded with family-friendly amenities and safety features, as does the Venga MPV, which is the van that Kia designed solely for Europe.
They took a great deal of time and care to deliver a vehicle that was perfectly suited to the driving conditions in that part of the world.
Kia Sedona Minivan
The latest addition to the people mover segment from Kia will come in the form of the 2015 Sedona.
The minivan has been missing out of the line-up for a couple of years, but Kia has been busy during that time.
They have re-imagined the Sedona and come up with a van that looks more like a CUV on the outside, but which has all the amenities and convenience features you would expect from a top-class minivan, as well as a few extras for good measure.
When the new Sedona is released to market, Kia will once again prove that they do indeed have the “Power to Surprise”.
