Kia

South Korea-based Kia Motors has roots going back to 1944, but didn’t officially enter the North American market until 1994 with the unloved Sephia compact. The brand suffered from quality issues similar to Hyundai, which actually bought a controlling interest in Kia after the company filed for bankruptcy in 1997. The brand matured significantly through the 2000s to become a popular choice for those seeking inexpensive, well-equipped cars and sport-utility vehicles.
