Why Buy a Kia


If you’re thinking of making your next car a Kia from Jim Shorkey Gainesville Kia, your head is in the right place. There are more reasons to buy a Kia than you can count on both hands. Here are some of our top picks.



Nothing validates our bias toward Kia like all of the awards this brand continues to collect over the years. In 2014, it took home Kelley Blue Book’s “Best Value Brand 2014” award. That same year, Interbrand called Kia the “Best Global Brand 2014.” Many of the Kia vehicles receive 5-star ratings from NHTSA and positive crash test scores across the board.


Innovative Safety

Each vehicle in the Kia lineup is filled with smart, advanced safety features, like Blind-Spot Detection with Lane-Change Assist, surround-view cameras, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.


Green Options

Kia’s lineup not only features efficient gasoline-powered vehicles, but offers several green options. There’s the highly efficient Kia Soul Electric Vehicle, which is also made with bio-friendly plastics, plus the impressively sophisticated Optima Hybrid.


Surprising Features at Every Turn

No Kia vehicle is the same, but they all share one thing in common: each is filled with surprising and thoughtful details, inside and out. Whether you choose a Kia with a panoramic sunroof, one with door handle welcome lights, a heated steering wheel, or a power liftgate, you’ll have a vehicle that treats you to delightful amenities you would never expect.
