Kia’s debuting its Proceed Concept car in Frankfurt later this month, but to get the masses excited before the reveal, the company has hit us with a couple of photos. Based on what I see, Kia just needs to toughen up and do it. Make the wagon.
Buying a car because of the badges stuck on it is likely the most popular terrible reason to buy a car. It happens all the time, of course, and chances are it won’t go away any time soon. That’s a shame, not just because it’s stupid, but because it means a lot of people are pissing away a lot of money for no good…
I’m just going to come out and say it: I really like the Kia Stinger. I like what it looks like, I like what it represents, I like that it’s a Kia and I like that its trunk opens as a hatch. So when I saw these photos today of a poor Stinger with a Toyota parked on top of it, I got super sad.
Alright, Kia. Sit down. We need to talk. Sure, you’re just getting into the groove of this “cool cars” thing. That’s fine, understandable. But if there’s one thing you don’t do in this realm of “coolness,” it’s tease a beautiful shooting brake and casually mention that hey, you know, it’s probably not coming to…
You can take your BMW M3 and piss right off because this Kia here, this 2018 Kia Stinger GT, looks like it’ll be a right good and proper sports sedan. And for a fraction of the price, too, most likely.
Hey! Who wants a grilling tip before summer’s over? This one’s great: for best results, when transporting your grill, make sure the gas is off and for the love of anything, don’t light up a freaking cigarette in a closed car with the gas on. And, yes, this happened in Florida.
The all-new Kia Stinger GT is shaping up to be a serious contender as a legit sports sedan. The Stinger will have similar power and style like the Audi S5 Sportback but come in at a much lower price. By the looks of this video, it seems like the Kia would be more fun too.
The Kia Optima Hybrid isn’t a particularly exciting car. It’s slow but adequate, like most wash-o-matic cars in this category. But the Optima is so much nicer and more user-friendly than the ubiquitous Toyota Camry, it makes me wonder: do midsize sedan buyers just not bother with Camry alternatives at all?
Did you know Kia still made the two-door Forte known as the Koup? I had no idea this was still a thing. Apparently, I was not alone, and since no one really bought them, and Kia is axing the Forte Koup for the 2017 model year.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to read or we’ll get really passive aggressive at you.
With fabulous fastback sports sedan looks, the 2017 Kia Stinger GT was one of the greatest stars of this year’s Detroit Auto Show. But it’s not just a pretty face, either: Kia says that it will be quite quick as well. Color me extremely interested.
At this moment, if you so chose to, you could spend $18,650 on a “London’s punk scene”-inspired leather jacket. My wife described this jacket as a “$20,000 Halloween costume,” and I think that’s a pretty good assessment. You could also spend exactly $18,650 on a 2017 Kia Rio EX. Let’s compare the two.
Well, maybe “worried” is a bit of a stretch. My personal welfare, and that of most of my friends and loved ones, thankfully does not hinge on the success of the 2018 Kia Stinger GT. But here’s the kind of car that enthusiasts have been after, the kind of car internet commenters say they’ll buy, and I’m not convinced…
The Kia GT4 Stinger concept from 2014 was the concept car you wished was real, and it lives—it lives quite wonderfully. The production version naturally isn’t as wild as that concept looked, but it does have a bit more power. Say hello to the Kia Stinger GT, Kia’s new rear-wheel-drive sedan with 365 horsepower.
The fully-electric Kia Soul EV is elegant in its simplicity. With huge windows and silent operation, the car feels more like a thing you’re wearing than driving. It’s a comfortable, if slightly sterile, way around town. But without charging infrastructure at your house, getting low on power can be pretty stressful.
The early 2000s were a bleak time for concept cars. This is the Kia Slice concept. It’s ugly as hell.
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.
