The third-gen Kia Ceed is coming, and while it isn’t available in the U.S. market, us Americans should still care about it.
You know how everybody in the world is an idiot except us? Sure you do. One of the ways everyone’s an idiot is the sad way the auto industry slavishly follows foolish marketing trends, like the current domination of crossovers and SUVs. Take the Kia Niro, for example. Kia keeps calling it a “crossover” which, to my…
I’ve gotten a ton of emails from you fine readers regarding the new Kia Stinger GT. Most of them go the same way: “Is the Stinger GT worth the price?” When compared to new cars the Stinger presents an incredible value, but if you look at what kind of used hardware you can get the equation changes a bit.
In car reviews, recounting how much “better” the Korean automakers are than they were in decades past has become painfully cliché. It doesn’t need to be said that Hyundai and Kia make world-class cars these days and have for some time, except in one area: performance. This is what the 2018 Kia Stinger GT aims to…
Kia showed up to CES with the Niro electric crossover concept, which previews a production model that will go on sale later this year. According to the presentation, the Niro has a 238-mile range and charge up to 115 miles worth of juice in just 30 minutes.
As a pack of car dorks, I’m sure you know all about badge engineering. Just in case you took a blow to the head and forgot, here’s a reminder: it’s when a carmaker decides to re-badge the same car under a different brand and model name for byzantine, unknowable reasons, and somehow sell it and make more money. It…
I never thought I’d say these words: I now own a 2003 Kia Rio. And my god is it a gigantic pile of garbage that I will thoroughly enjoy destroying in an upcoming video series. But first, the thing has to somehow survive winter-beater duty.
The Kia Stinger is a pretty impressive value considering the speed, style, and features you get for your money compared to more expensive European sportbacks. Now Kia has come out of the gate hot with some really attractive lease deals.
The rear-wheel-drive Kia Stinger Sportback is the first vehicle to challenge some of the sport sedan badge snobbery from Kia, historically an automaker more known for budget cars than fast ones. How would you spec yours?
Everything is terrible all of the time, but there are moments when rays of sunshine briefly poke out to make our miserable lives a bit more bearable. Case in point: you can soon buy a Kia with rear-wheel drive, a twin-turbo V6 engine, performance optimized for the Nürburgring and a price tag that far undercuts the…
A few weeks ago, I bought a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero for $1 from a friend who just wanted the non-running junker out of her driveway. My plan was to destroy the car in an upcoming video series, but those plans have now changed; I’ve decided to trade the N-Body sedan for a ruined 2003 Kia Rio.
Kia Motors announced a second recall in the U.S. for more than 340,000 Souls, after it was discovered an initial repair for a steering defect may not have fixed the issue.
I’d like to deny that all Americans have some kind of yabboistic tendencies, but I know it to be false. Given the right time, we love smokey burnouts and loud cars. Kia understands this and will indulge us with the 2018 Kia Stinger. I don’t know if this is good marketing or if we’re just crass.
Kia has now officially taken a serious shot at the usual European sports sedans with the Stinger GT. According to the reviews, the new Stinger is pretty impressive, but to truly make a dent in luxury market, Kia needs to look beyond the cars and fix their dealerships, which, for the most part, are, shall we say, not…
The sporty Korean sedan with a hatch that came along and stole our hearts now has a price tag.
It is fair and justified to be skeptical of the 2018 Kia Stinger GT. A rear-wheel drive sport sedan from Kia? With 365 horsepower? Again, from Kia? All of it seems improbable, like something you’d experience in a wild fever dream. But it is real, and apparently it’s pretty good, too.
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…
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.
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.
