(January 29, 2024) The Kia Telluride remains as a carry over into 2024 virtually unchanged from 2023 after a styling refresh and updating, the first since it launched for the 2020 model year. Last year's refresh included a new updated grille, redesigned LED headlamps, a new front bumper and fascia on the exterior. Inside, there was an all-new digital instrument panel with dual 12.3 inch panoramic LED screens that serve as the infotainment center and gauge displays.

2023 Kia Niro Hybrid



PHOENIX — In a world of lookalike vehicles few standout with an uncommon yet attractive design appeal. It's easy to see that one could make a legitimate claim that the throughly redesigned 2023 Kia Niro is one of them. Part hatchback, part wagon and part SUV, there's design cues from its Kia sibling the Soul. Undoubtedly the most exclusive and unique aspect of its exterior is the contrasting black colored "Aero Blade" with its slight protrusion across the rear-most pillar that directs airflow through and around it toward the rear hatchback.

2023 Kia EV6 GT



SANTA CLARITA, Calif. — It was in the spring of last year that I first "plugged in" to Kia’s all-new EV6. Kia has been exploring the EV market for some time, but its efforts — in the guise of Niro hybrids and both an electrified Niro and Soul — were small, conservative steps rather than a dramatic leap. The EV6 was — and remains — a leap.

2023 Kia Niro EV



INDIANAPOLIS — I like traveling to California. I enjoy the warm weather, cool architectural vibe, surfing the waves, and of course, imbibing all of the latest electric cars. When I’m tired from a day in the sun, I grab dinner on a restaurant patio before cruising the Pacific Coast Highway with windows and sunroof open. If I lived there, I’d drive the 2023 Kia Niro EV. Even back home in Indiana, it would serve my active family well.

2023 Kia EV6 GT



PHOENIX — We first reviewed and wrote about Kia’s all- and electric only EV6 sedan with its quirky exterior design and straddling the lines of being a crossover utility vehicle, wagon or a sportback sedan that we deemed “stunning” in design language about one year ago.
So impressed with the EV6 we couldn’t help but throw continuing superlatives at it like, seats that are supremely comfortable, a 310-mile driving range between charging along with quick recharging to 80% in just 18 minutes, roomy, aand fantastic driving dynamics.

(March 12, 2023) Kia struck gold in 2020 with the Telluride, a new three-row mid-sized crossover SUV. It has wowed customers for three years, and for 2023 the Telluride has undergone a mid-cycle refreshening that includes updated exterior styling and interior upgrades that include a twin gauge cluster and an infotainment screen that together provide nearly 25 inches of continuous screen across the dashboard.

(February 12, 2023) Kia arrived in the United States in 1992 with the Sportage compact SUV, well ahead of the current crossover popularity. The other initial entry was an inexpensive compact sedan called the Sephia. The Sportage, which quickly gained fans in the soon-to-be small SUV segment, was a collaboration of Kia, Ford and Mazda — Ford having a stake in the company and Mazda providing the powertrain.

(January 15, 2023) In a few of the enthusiast pubs — notably, the Brit mags — there’s the regular reference to what their editorial staffs buy and drive. And those wheels just keep on spinning, with an ongoing hubbub of collectible this and track day that; you wonder how-in-the-King’s name they have the time, even if they can find the money, to acquire so many machines.

Kia Telluride – Already superb SUV only gets better for 2023

(December 28, 2022) It’s the hottest 8-seat, 3-row SUV on the market with such a selling success that Kia literally can’t build enough of them to meet consumer demand. So much so that Kia is upping production at its West Point, Ga., manufacturing plant by 25 percent to around 120,000 a year.  It’s  the 4th bestselling 3-row SUV in America. In fact, it’s the one I recommend the most for anyone looking for a family friendly 3-row vehicle.
