Turbo performance comes to Kia

Kia unveiled the 2014 Forte 5-door SX car in Chicago recently and it sports turbo power. The car has a 4-cylinder 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine producing 201hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to put it atop the pyramid in its class.

The car will be offered in EX and SX trims with a pair of engine choices. The normal engine is a 2L GDI 4-cylinder with 173hp and 154 lb-ft of torque. The SX is the only version offered with the turbo engine.

Both versions will have 16-inch wheels, Bluetooth tech, satellite radio and lots more. The cars will debut in the US in Q3 2013 at an undisclosed price. I would expect pricing to be aggressive.

2015 Kia Soul EV First Drive: Kia’s Electrified Sensitive Side

Sep 17 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Kia calls the Soul a UPV—Urban Passenger Vehicle—a classification that’s particularly apt for the new EV version, the brand’s first zero-emissions offering. With a fully charged battery pack, the car earns an EPA operating range of 93 miles, but that still means sightings of electric Souls beyond city limi ...

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 1.6-liter four-cylinder found in the ...

2015 Kia Sedona

Sep 17 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Kia, First Drives, New Car Reviews 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 complete overhaul for the 2015 model year? The Korean automaker isn't convinced that the minivan's ...

The 2015 Kia Soul hatchback has rejoined the ranks of vehicles deemed worthy of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick.

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis and 2015 Kia K900 are two hot contenders for the Luxury Sedan crown, but do they have the punching power to keep up with the established luxury brands? If you think that the Korean brands are just for inexpensive little runabouts, you’re in for a rude awakening. Both Hyundai and sibling Kia have gone upscale, hoping to keep happy current owners in the fold as earnings and desires rise. And there are also lots of buyers from tradit ...
