In the opinion of the renowned German market research company Bähr & Fess, the Kia Ceed has been rated as ‘the giant of residual value in 2025.’
Special praise to Stonic and Picanto who were ranked among the top 3 in their segment
Special praise was given to 2 more models of Kia – Stonic, which finished second in the category of small SUVs and Picanto, which placed 3rd in the very competitive segment of small cars.
This significant recognition by an independent, globally recognized company emphasizes the value of Kia vehicles and the regularity of the path taken by this brand in order to reduce the cost of ownership for the buyers of its vehicles. The Ceed took first place in the compact vehicle segment with a 1.0 T-GDI engine with 100 horsepower. Experts from Bähr & Fess estimate that four years after the purchase, the new vehicle will lose EUR 8,379 * and retain 48.5% of its value, thus beating the competition from Škoda (Scala) and Volkswagen (Golf).
The Kia Stonic 1.2 (84 hp) is estimated to lose € 7,909 by 2025 and retain 52.5% of the value of the new vehicle. The Picanto 1.0 (67 hp), which deserves special mention, should lose 5,536 EUR * by 2025, while retaining 48.5% of the value of the new vehicle.
Experts from Bähr & Fess estimate the absolute and relative purchase value of each vehicle at resale for four years. Bähr & Fess estimates are based on data from financial institutions and organizations operating in the automotive sector, including major banks and leasing companies. The results were published by the online edition of the German media Focus (Focus Online).
“This sum of unbiased and highly respectable forecasts shows that Kia offers high value to customers throughout the vehicle life cycle, which means we are on track to create passenger cars that will continue to meet the different needs of the market,” said Jason Jeong, President of Kia Europe.
