2014 Kia Forte SX offers Turbo Power

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 Toyota Sienna

Sep 25 2014 1:57pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Toyota, First Drives It's hard to love a minivan, but it's very, very easy to use one. More than any other kind of vehicle - save a panel van, perhaps - the minivan is the most appliance-like of four-wheeled transportation devices. And most minivan buyers don't need to love their purchases; they just need to use them. So when it comes to a minivan's driving dynamics, who cares ...

Filed under: Honda, Kia, Toyota, Volkswagen, Earnings/Financials While it's arguably been around the longest, the dominance of the four-door sedan has been under threat for many years.

Plastics Make It Possible: Local Motors’ Crowd-Sourced, 3-D–Printed Strati EV Is Born, Runs

Sep 22 2014 3:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

When last we checked in on the crowd-sourced-design maestros over at Local Motors, the outfit was in the thick of a design competition focused on an all-new, 3-D–printed electric vehicle. A few months later, the winning car has become a thing with a name: Strati. As it had promised, Local Motors packed its manufacturing tooling, some employees, and the groundbreaking car’s non-printed parts and headed to the International Manufacturing Trade Show (IMTS) in Chicago to build it. That’s ...

Kia Soul Mixx And Maxx

Sep 20 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

2014 brought the first major redesign of the Kia Soul, but the South Korean automaker treaded carefully and didn’t meddle with the car’s styling too much. A wise decision, if you ask me. Not only because I like the Soul’s unique design, but it also didn’t make sense for Kia to change one of its best-selling models drastically. Sure, I don’t expect all of you to rave about its boxy styling, but the new Soul is quite rewarding when it comes to cargo and interior room, all backed by a ...

2015 Kia Rio

Sep 20 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The Kia Rio has never been among the top-selling subcompacts, but that now has more to do with its competition than with any of its own flaws or omissions. The latest iteration offers crisp, stylish European design; a cleanly styled, feature-packed interior; and an agreeable, fuel-efficient engine. The Hond ...
