    First Drive: 2015 Kia Sedona
    1411228800

    Injecting New Life Into A Tired Segment, But Will Anyone Notice? Minivan sales have stagnated in recent years, and Kia tells me that no fewer than 15 models have been completely eliminated from the market since crossovers rose to prominence. So why in the world is the company not only sticking by the Sedona, but also actively investing in it, giving it a ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Kia Cee'd GT
    1411056000

    Kia may be an automaker with a lot going for it these days, but it's not yet one that takes pains to appeal to performance enthusiasts. Aside from its Pirelli World Challenge team, it doesn't support any major racing programs to speak of. And despite having showcased such concepts as the GT4 Stinger and the Provo, it doesn't really offer much in the way ...

    Report: Kia Soul getting turbo power, possible AWD
    1411045200

    It's been a long time coming, but it appears we might finally see a turbocharged Kia Soul next year. Kia officials reportedly confirmed the hotter Soul to Motor Trend recently, and also stated that the company is (still) investigating the use of all-wheel drive for the next generation of its boxy hatchback. The turbo Soul will arrive with the same ...

    Review: 2014 Kia Forte Koup SX
    1409155080

    The Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra have long followed similar paths, with each available in a four-door sedan, a five-door hatch and (most recently) a two-door coupe bodystyle. The recent death of the Hyundai Elantra Coupe in the US (which still continues to be sold here in Canada) may be threatening to change the narrative on these two affordable compact ...

    Video: Kia Soul EV ad campaign charges up with sexified hamsters
    1409007480

    It's official: Kia's adorable Soul-hawking Hamsters have crossed that line. It was one thing when they first hit the scene, and we got a small chuckle out of their trimmer looks for the refreshed, 2014 Soul. This, though, is too much. This is Kia's latest commercial for the 2015 Soul EV, and it starts off typically enough. The hamsters seem to be ...

    Official: Kia takes the wraps off new Sorento
    1407761940

    We've seen the spy shots (twice) and we've seen the teaser images, but now Kia has finally revealed the finished form of its upcoming new Sorento crossover. Taking some styling cues from the Kia Cross GT concept from the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, but with better proportions, the new Sorento packs a more pronounced grille in an altogether more aggressive ...

    Teased: Kia teases next Sorento [w/video]
    1407110400

    We recently spotted it testing, and now Kia digitally dropped all of the cladding and obfuscation from its next-generation Sorento crossover to tease its true face. For the new model, it certainly looks as if the company's designers will evolve the current CUV's shape to be a bit more curvaceous than before. According to Kia, the new design has a lower ...

    Spy Shots: Kia Sorento spotted high-altitude testing after 'Ring run
    1405720800

    Some models stick around the market longer than others. The Kia Sorento, for example, lasted for a good eight years in its first iteration, and the second-generation model has been around for five years now. Sure, it had a facelift a couple of years ago, but if it's going to make it in the highly competitive midsize crossover market, Kia is going to have ...

    A couple weeks ago, J.D. Power released its latest Initial Quality Study, which gave high marks to Porsche, Hyundai and General Motors, with the latter earning more individual IQS awards than any other manufacturer. Now, it's Strategic Vision's turn, and it's doling out its praise not to Porsche, but to Tesla, which wasn't even included in the JD Power ...

    1402783200

    Tsk, tsk, dancing hamster. Kia's trio of anthropomorphic rodents may be down a member as the actor that portrays one of the dancing hamsters has been arrested on charges of disability fraud. According to The Huffington Post, 27-year-old LeRoy Barnes accepted over US$51,000 in disability payments following a workplace injury in 2010. While accepting the ...
