The 2012 Kia Optima and Sorento were two of only 15 vehicles to grace the list, and Kia credits the vehicles distinctive styling with separating themselves from other automakers.
"As bold design and value are no longer mutually exclusive, the Optima and Sorento have changed the way many consumers look at what family cars can and should be," said Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Kia Motors America, Michael Sprague. "This recognition from leading family and automotive resources Parents magazine and Edmunds.com reinforces why these two Kia vehicles are among our top-selling products and why more families are considering Kia for the first time."
For the 2012 Kia Optima, impressive performance and fuel efficiency was a major contributing factor for its spot on the list. The 2012 Kia Optimas 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generates an impressive 200 horsepower and still returns 35 mpg highway, but the Optimas remarkable engine options dont stop there.

turbocharged four-cylinder delivers V6 power coupled with four-cylinder fuel economy. Capable of generating 274 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque, the Optimas turbocharged 2.0-liter engine still returns 34 mpg highway.
The 2012 Kia Sorento delivers a similar combination of efficiency and performance. The Sorentos available 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine returns 32 mpg highway, and the available 3.5-liter V6 generates 272 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft.
