Kia is, essentially, the sportier arm of its parent company, Hyundai. Like Hyundai, Kia got started out producing economical affordable cars but has since grown to produce mid-range cars of high quality and decent performance. Kia’s sportscar, the Stinger, is probably the most noteworthy in the lineup, though the Kia Sportage and Sorento.
