The 2017, 2016 & 2015 Kia Forte model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 64% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Forte. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 19.32 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2015 Forte model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
