Both the 2016 Kia Optima sedan and the 2016 Kia Sedona minivan recently received AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards (IVA). Every year renowned auto authority, AutoPacific surveys and reviews responses from owners of new model year vehicles following the first 90 days of ownership. The survey targets 15 key categories that new car owners would prefer to change in their vehicles. Most requested changes are to ride and handling, interior storage, safety features, technology, power and acceleration. Vehicles with the fewest requested changes are named IVA winners.
In this year’s survey AutoPacific measured over 65,000 responses from owners of new 2015 and 2016 vehicles. Of these responses the new Kia Sedona and Optima had some of the lowest scores, earning them the coveted 2016 Ideal Vehicle Awards. These awards are the second honors bestowed on the new Kia Optima and Sedona from AutoPacific this year. In June, both models also received AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA).
Perhaps the most exciting component of awards like the Ideal Vehicle and Vehicle Satisfaction Awards is that they are solely based on real-driver experiences. To receive recognition based on positive customer feedback is the highest honor any auto manufacturer can receive.
We invite you to experience these two multiple award winning vehicles at our Kia dealership in San Angelo, Texas. We offer the full lineup of new Kia models including the 2016 Kia Sedona and Optima.
