The 2018, 2017 & 2015 Kia Optima model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 64% of the original cost with 92% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Optima. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 27.91 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2015 Optima model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
