Kia and Hyundai have the same parent company, but the Korean automakers offer completely different lineups. While Hyundai’s cars and SUVs focus on how much bang you can get for your buck, Kia’s diverse lineup has low-cost models that are sold alongside high-priced models that can cost nearly $50,000 in their highest grade.
Kia makes some products Hyundai does not, including a minivan (Sedona), a luxury small car (Stinger), a large car (Cadenza), and a luxury large car (K900). Likewise, Kia has no comparable vehicle to
Hyundai’s Veloster, a sporty hatchback coupe.
