Drag Race: Kia Stinger GT Vs Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake
It’s another drag race from our UK colleagues from Carwow and this time, the Kia Stinger GT goes up against the Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake. Although both cars compete in the same segment, they are propelled by very different drivetrains. Will more power and torque prevail over less weight, all-wheel drive, and a DSG gearbox?
2022 Kia Sorento PHEV
Kia launched the fourth generation Sorento back in 2020. At the moment of its launch, only gasoline and hybrid engines were announced, and a plug-in hybrid version was promised for the 2022 model year. Now the plug-in hybrid version has been finally added to the Sorento lineup, and it comes with a few cool promises, including a combined overall range of 460 miles.
2023 Kia Sportage - A Crossover For The Masses
The Sportage is one of the longest-running nameplates in Kia’s history. It has been around since 1993 and is entering its fifth generation as it nears its three-decade anniversary. The new Sportage comes with a plethora of changes. It looks a lot smarter than the current model, is underpinned on a new architecture, and will be offered with hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. Kia will also add a new trim on the fifth-gen Sportage. At this point, not a lot of detail is revealed, but we should hear more of it when it arrives in late 2021 or early 2022.
2021 Kia K5 - Driven
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
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’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.
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
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
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 K5
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
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.
