Why are Kia and Hyundai way cheaper than Toyota or Honda?

I was looking for midsize suv with third row and the I found few like highlanders but compare to Kia , highlander prices are higher. So is it because Kia aren’t reliable or is it because of brand name. Like apple iPhone resell prices are higher than android even thought they function the same , is because of apple reputation.

    Honda and Toyota are established brand leaders. People are familiar with the names. Kia and Hyundai not so much. But Kia and Hyundai are at least as reliable and have longer warranties here in the UK. I bought my daughter a new Kia Picanto GT a year ago. Being turbo charged it is quick yet economical. She loves it.

    KIA has CONFIDENCE with a warranty to 100,000 miles! KIA was BOUGHT BY FORD and RETURNED long ago I would get a KIA or it's COUSIN the HYUNDAI only from the WARRANTY! And TOYOTA is GREAT, but SLIPPING a bit now! I have TREATED and REAIRED many cars from ALL OVER THE WORLD and I would STIL get a used BMW< AUDI , or BENZ or even a later FORD in a few HEART BEATS! FORD did the RIGHT THING after the BANKRUPTCIES and they began using EUROPEAN TECH and SUPPLIERS in ALL their cars! THIS MADE SENSE as the EUROPEAN ALWAYS had a LEADING EDGE for tech and STRUCTURE! The KIA features the BEST tech acquired from SEVERAL other companies and WHO can beat that 10 year warranty>> this IMPLIES that you get REGULAR CHECK UPS at the DEALERSHIP! MSO people just BUY and DRIVE ad infinitum! They do NO preventative care at ALL And WAIT till something goes WRONG! I AM NOT like that! I KNOW what REALLY WORKS and what REALLYIL doesn't work! PENNZOIL ULTRA OILS give a warranty to 500,000 miles as they are MADE from NATURAL GAS and NOT from CRUDE< WAX, TAR< or ASH like VALVOLINE IS MADE! ONE OIL CHANGE per YEAR is all you need! IT HOLDS all the CONTAMINANTS in a SUPERB SUSPENSION and the PARTS do NOT ever get TARRY COATINGS or ASH coatings or ANY coatings at ALL! It is ALWAYS the OIL that causes WEAR and TEAR! The OIL CHICES are MOST important and most OILS out there are OPURE JUNK! SAME for FLUIDS! I ONLY  use GERMAN refined DEXRON and NOT valvoline JUNK FLUIDS!
