The 2018, 2017 & 2014 Kia Forte model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 76% of the original cost with 92% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Forte. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 15.68 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2014 Forte model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
