The Kia EV6 Is A Formidable Rival To The Porsche Taycan, Too!

The Kia EV6 Is A Formidable Rival To The Porsche Taycan, Too!

The EV6 rivals the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y primarily, but it has enough potential to take on the much-more expensive Porsche Taycan

Electrification is the way to go whether you like it or not. Enough and more has been said about the advent of EVs, so we won’t get into that. Every automaker is coming up with their own new offerings, but there are some that stand out. The Kia EV6 is that stand-out model. Built from the ground up, the EV6 doesn’t seem like a half-hearted attempt from the automaker just because it needs to have a presence in the EV market. It is based on a new platform, a new design philosophy, and excels in most of the departments. It isn’t a perfect product, obviously, but it has a lot going in its favor and that’s precisely why it should be the talk of the town and why Porsche should be a little worried.

2022 KIA EV6

2022 KIA EV6

The EV6 is a mixed bag that comes with handsome looks, decent tech features, Taycan-rivaling performance specs, but mediocre range

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Kia has entered the EV segment with a bang. The company recently revealed some images of its first fully battery-electric vehicle called the EV6 without accompanying it with any data. But, the company has now officially debuted the car and it seems very impressive.

For starters, the Kia EV6 will make 577 ponies and 546 pound-feet of torque. It takes just 3.5 seconds to sprint to 62 mph from rest, which makes it faster than some Tesla models and Taycan iterations, too. And, did I mention it looks pretty hot?

2021 Kia K5 - Driven

2021 Kia K5 - Driven

Does the Kia K5 represent a strong evolution or is it just another midsized sedan?

Let me introduce you to the Kia K5 midsize sedan – a car that really doesn’t need much of an introduction because you’ve known it as the Kia Optima ever since it hit the market back in 2000, but I’ll discuss that a bit later. Like the Optima, the K5 is known for its attractive styling, sexy yet functional interior, and – naturally – a great value for the money. Highlights of the new k5 (or 5th-gen Optima, if you like) are even bolder styling, new engine offerings, and, believe it or not, available all-wheel drive. Pricing for the new Kia K5 starts out at a very reasonable $23,590 (making it one of the most affordable midsize cars on the market) with the loaded, more powerful, range-topping GT trim commanding just $30,590. With this in mind, is the Kia K5 right for you? Keep reading to find out.

2022 Kia Stinger

2022 Kia Stinger

A new, bigger, and powerful engine in the base trim makes the Stinger an even more droolworthy proposition

There was a scare back in the day that Kia might send the Stinger into oblivion, but fortunately, that didn’t happen. Almost nine months after it was unveiled in Korea, the updated Stinger has finally been launched in the U.S. Even though we knew what to expect from Kia’s halo sports sedan, we’re still pretty excited about it. The car comes with many new features inside out, but the talking point is a powerful 2.5-liter mill that replaces the 2.0-liter engine seen on the base trim so far.

Kia Builds Two Sorento Concepts To Prove Its Wild Nature

Kia Builds Two Sorento Concepts To Prove Its Wild Nature

These aren’t going into production but we would love it if they did

Kia’s rise in the car world has been nothing sort of spectacular and we can clearly see it today in cars such as the Telluride or the all-new 2021 Sorento. Speaking of which, the Koreans’ American arm has been brewing two Sorento-based off-road concepts and we can’t get enough of their coolness. Meet the Sorento Yosemite Edition and Zion Edition.

New turbo engine, no V-6, and a plug-in hybrid variant: meet the 2021 Kia Sorento

The Sorento came to market in 2002 and has since been one of Kia’s top-selling models in the US of A. We’re taking a closer look at the 2021 Sorento, a car that has come a long way from its inception to the all-rounder mid-size SUV it is today.

Right now, the Sorento comes with three powertrains, including a hybrid, and we’re told a plug-in hybrid is expected to show up next year. The 2021 Kia Sorento goes on sale in the U.S. by the end of 2020, so let’s see what it brings to the table.

Kia Fires A Few Shots At BMW In Its New K5 Sedan Commercial

Kia Fires A Few Shots At BMW In Its New K5 Sedan Commercial

Kia could rue the day that it threw the gauntlet at the feet of BMW

If there’s anything we know about Kia, it’s that the automaker isn’t afraid to crosshairs with its rivals as it did in this new commercial for the new K5 sedan. The K5 is Kia’s latest pride and joy; it’s a four-door premium sedan that’s set to compete with some of the most entrenched models in its segment, including the BMW 3 Series.

Yes, Kia is packaging the K5 as a competitor to the 3 Series, so much so that this K5 commercial isn’t really so much about singing the K5’s praises as it is mocking Bimmer’s 330i sedan. They say that one should never tug at Superman’s cape, but it seems that Kia didn’t get that memo, or at least it did but completely ignored it.

We Don't Know Why, But Kia Is Doing Stunts with the new K5 (Optima) Sedan

We Don’t Know Why, But Kia Is Doing Stunts with the new K5 (Optima) Sedan

That was a sweet flat spin in the K5, but why?

For the 2021 model, Kia redesigned the Optima inside out and gave it a new moniker as well – K5. The South Korean automaker is marketing this revised package as a sporty sedan, and perhaps, that explains the reason behind this new video.

Kia released a short forty-second clip that shows the K5 doing a flat-spin. It looks like the automaker wants to break the association of the repackaged sedan as just an executive car used by owners to be chauffeured around and more like the car you can also have fun with over the weekends.

2021 Kia Stinger – Revitalized and Enhanced

The Second-Gen Kia Stinger Isn’t Here, But The Updated Stinger Is Almost As Good
Updated Kia Stinger to Launch in Korea for the 2021 Model year Global Launch, Including North America, will Happen in 2021 as a 2022 Model New Powertrains Could Provide More Power Improved Appearance and Interior Materials New Infotainment Tech

In Mid-April we reported that the second-gen Kia Stinger was coming for the 2021 model year, but just a week or two later, we found out that the Kia Stinger might end up being canceled, along with hopes that a second-generation model would arrive. Then, in May of 2020, we learned that the next-gen Kia Stinger was delayed and might morph into an all-electric vehicle, but a facelifted model would launch in late 2020 as a 2021 model. Now, Kia has released a handful of images so we can see what the slightly refreshed Stinger looks like and we have a few tidbits of information to share. The real question, however, is whether or not the 2021 Kia Stinger will end up with updated, more powerful engines.

Kia’s Optima replacement has arrived

It’s been almost a decade since Kia introduced the 2011 Optima in the U.S. and the time has come for a generation swap. Call it a model swap, actually, as the new 2021 Kia K5 mid-size saloon is here to take over from where the Optima left off.

Kia will assemble the K5 next to the crisp-looking Telluride SUV at its plant in West Point, Georgia. Before the first cars roll off the production line, let’s look at what customers will be getting from the 2021 K5 sedan.

In Order to Survive, The Next-Gen Kia Stinger Will Drastically Evolve in Unexpected Ways

If the Kia Stinger is going to survive beyond this generation, drastic changes are necessary

In less than one month, we’ve gone from telling you that much better Kia Stinger is coming in 2021 to reporting that the Stinger is in trouble and may disappear entirely in the next few years. Now, a recent conversation between Top Gear and Kia’s Design Boss, Karim Habib, has taught us that the Stinger will be facelifted for 2021 but what happens after that could change your view on the Stinger forever.
