There is no true defining characteristic of the 2003 Kia Spectra, especially in beige. It blends into the background so much that people often just run into it. It’s the official car of “I’ve made some bad choices in life.” If there’s anyone who can break down this exceedingly normcore car, it’s Mr. Regular himself.
I’m still bummed the Kia GT4 Stinger never happened. The world needs more rear-drive sport coupes, now more than ever.
Did you know Kia has an “environmentally friendly sub-brand” called EcoDynamics? I didn’t either, and apparently that’s kind of the point of the new Niro. Being a “subtle hybrid” is the car’s main objective, but that’s actually not its coolest feature.
A UK man with some strangely ill-informed, foul-mouthed, and judgmental friends took a leisurely seven years to drive his Kia 100,000 km (62,000 miles), and celebrated the occasion by posting the event on YouTube, where he gleefully, joyfully, and lavishly loses his shit.
If you’re a fan of Kia’s recent design direction (which I am) then I’d suggest just looking at the pictures here. Kia’s new Telluride full-size SUV concept looks great, and is a refreshing departure from what we’re used to seeing. Just don’t read the press release. Especially if you’ve just eaten.
This year’s CES trade show has been all about automotive technology, particularly autonomous and electric concept cars. Kia jumped into the game today, announcing to have a new sub-brand called Drive Wise, which will introduce a new fully autonomous cars to the streets by 2030.
Like any automaker with its eyes on the future, Kia was sure to make its presence known at this year’s CES convention. Except instead of a new infotainment system, fancy electric car concept, or some sort of vaporware batmobile, they dropped a tease of a large SUV called the KCD12.
Kia and sister company Hyundai are dumping $2 billion into autonomous driving tech through the next three years. They plan to get this into cars as ‘driver-assists’ by 2020, have a completely self-driving car by 2030, and it all starts now with the company’s license to test it in Nevada.
I recently had the opportunity to assess the car culture in South Korea, which is a nation that reminds us to always be thankful that we have Canada to our north, even if they did give us Celine Dion and Nickelback.
What happens when you put a four inch lift and some mud tires on a Kia Forte Koup? Great things. Meet the Baja Kia!
I had a Kia Forte as a rental car once. Damn good little car, the Kia Forte. It wasn’t the fastest thing on four wheels, but it was well-built and a solid value. You know what would make it even better? Big fat offroadin’ tires, fender flares and racing seats. Obviously, because those things make every car better.
The Kia Optima upholds Hyundai-Kia’s newfound reputation for building solid, feature-rich cars that offer true value. What do you need to know before you buy a Kia Optima? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
The Kia Sorento, like much of the modern Hyundai-Kia stable, is a lot of car for not a lot of coin. What do you need to know before you buy a Sorento? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
The Kia Sportage is the underdog of the compact CUV segment, which is why it’s worth checking out. What do you need to know before you buy a Kia Sportage? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
Today we talked about the unrealistic standards set by concept car illustrators, with the new Kia Sportage being the most recent SUV-CUV-whatever to be victimized by huge wheels and impossible body lines.
Just in case there was anyone still out there who doesn’t think the very art-school, massive-wheel renderings that car companies release to preview a new design are total bullshit, Kia does a great job of reminding us. Are the drawings cool? Absolutely? Do they actually, really show us what he car will look like?…
