Not too long ago used Kias were scoffed at, salesmen didn’t want them on their forecourts - they were undesirable and practically worthless. If you bought a new one you might as well keep it for life as there would be little point ever selling it. But it’s a sign of how far Kias have come that, not only is the Sportage highly rated as an SUV, it also commands a premium on the used car market. The relatively low retail price when new probably helps, as will the fantastic seven-year warranty.
