2012 Kia Forte Koup

Top notch performance by the Kia Forte Koup earned it the Vincentric Best Value in America award for the second time. This sharp looking Kia earned the right to show some swagger based upon its best-in-class depreciation rate, insurance costs and repair costs. But the claim to Best Value wasn’t all the Forte Koup earned; it also grabbed the lowest total cost of ownership claim as well. The Honda Civic and Nissan Altima also earned a spot on the Vincentric podium as 2nd and 3rd place winners respectively.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
