2023 Kia Sportage



MIAMI — After “earning” a reputation as a producer of cheap economy cars of say questionable quality after its arrival in the U.S in the early 1990s, Kia has established itself in the 21st Century as the manufacturer of top quality products New vehicles such as the Telluride full-size SUV, playful Soul, and performance-driven  Stinger sedan are responsible for some of that growth.

2022 Kia Niro EV



INDIANAPOLIS — I have a pretty long commute — about 35 miles each way.  And as I noticed while picking up soda at the gas station last weekend, 87 octane was $4.65 per gallon.  Premium and diesel were uncomfortably over $5.  I own a Smart car and have test cars most of the time, so gas prices don’t usually affect my budget much, but goodness that’s expensive.  I let it sink in, then realized I still don’t care because…I’m driving the 2022 Kia Niro EV.

Kia Niro EV doesn't care about gas mileage, long commutes

I have a pretty long commute – about 35 miles each way.  And as I noticed while picking up soda at the gas station last weekend, 87 octane was $4.65 per gallon.  Premium and diesel were uncomfortably over $5.  I own a Smart car and have test cars most of the time, so gas prices don’t usually affect my budget much, but good-ness that’s expensive.  I let it sink in, then realized I still don’t care because…I’m driving the 2022 Kia Niro EV.

(April 13, 2022) Kia has given buyers of its mid-sized three-row fourth-generation Sorento sport utility vehicle, which was introduced as an all-new model for 2021, compelling choices for 2022 with four distinct powertrains and six trim levels. Kia has kept the Sorento affordable offering a model for every pocketbook from the base LX starting at $30,895 to the loaded X-Line SX Prestige at $44,405. And for 2022 a new plug-in hybrid SX Prestige begins at $46,405.

2022 Kia EV6



PHOENIX — Visually, Kia’s all-new electric-only vehicle strikes an eclectic if not quirky exterior design. Sitting somewhere between a crossover, a wagon and a sportback sedan, it makes a more than favorable impression. Stunning would not be an exaggeration. The EV6 is sized similarly to the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Kia Stinger — Still one of our favorite rides

(February 20, 2022) For most of the 21st Century Kia has been among the best at vehicle design — inside and out. Perhaps the leading example of its styling prowess over the past two decades is the mid-sized Stinger sports sedan that came to market as a 2018 model. It has an aggressive yet graceful design that skillfully incorporates a cargo-friendly hatchback. Over the past five years the Stinger has remained mostly the same — with a few exterior tweaks — but still has a fresh head-turning persona.

Kia Stinger — GT-Line gets major horsepower boost

(January 2, 2022) I know of no data that will back this up but it has been my experience over the last 20 years that automakers pay more attention to updating the higher trims on their models than they do on their entry level vehicles, though many of the features introduced on the top trim eventually trickle their way down through the lineup. Kia, however, seems to be taking a different approach with the newest Stinger.

Kia Carnival — A modern minivan

(October 3, 3031) It was time for a new generation minivan at Kia, but instead of the all-new 2022 Kia Sedona, we have the all-new Kia Carnival. Kia not only revised and reworked its minivan for 2022, but it changed the name, perhaps to distance its newest entry from the typical minivan stigma. The Sedona name has been retired and the minivan moniker has been swept into the trash bin of history. Welcome the new Carnival, which Kia calls a Multi-Purpose Vehicle or MPV.

Kia Telluride — Award-winning crossover


2021 Kia Telluride Nightfall Edition

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(July 22, 2021) The mid-sized three-row Telluride crossover SUV has been a huge hit for Kia from the standpoint of awards, favorable press reviews, and — more importantly — excellent sales. Customers are flocking to Kia stores to check out and purchase the Telluride since its inception almost two years ago as a 2020 model

2022 Kia Carnival



INDIANAPOLIS — One of my favorite cars is the Moderne-style 1936 Stout Scarab  — a rear-engine aluminum forerunner to the minivan that was aimed at Hollywood’s elite as a more fashion-forward limousine.  Drivers worked in an airplane-inspired cockpit while passengers lounged in the rear. Kia harbors the Scarab’s spirit to create a glamorous and obscenely comfortable multi-purpose vehicle for all you carry. Just don’t call the 2022 Carnival a minivan.
