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.

Kia Soul EV ad campaign charges up with sexified hamsters

Aug 21 2014 6:04pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Marketing/Advertising, Videos, Crossover, Kia, Electric 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 tinkering in a laboratory attempting to modify a standard, ...

The 2014 Kia Forte impresses in most ways that matter for budget-conscious small-car shoppers. And with decent performance, an excellent feature set, three body styles, and plenty of style inside and out, it sounds like the right formula to battle best-in-class offerings from Ford and M ...

2015 Hyundai Tucson

Aug 21 2014 8:29am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

Some compact crossovers channel tougher SUVs in their design and equipment, but not the Hyundai Tucson. Like rivals from Ford and Kia and Honda, it puts all its effort into smoothing out the road ahead, and coddling as many as five passengers--on the street, not in the dirt. It starts with the design. Sharp lines up front flo ...

2015 Kia Optima

Aug 18 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The current generation of the Kia Optima gets to carry forward for one more model year -- one year longer than its Hyundai Sonata cousin, which is being redesigned this year -- and that should be fine by most shoppers. In part, it's because the 2015 Optima was always an advanced student of design (it rem ...

2015 Kia Cadenza

Aug 16 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

Debuting for 2014, the Cadenza was Kia's first foray above the $40,000 base-price level, and it has recently been joined by a larger luxury-minded sedan, the rear-drive K9. While it's true that other Kias, such as the Sorento SUV, can be optioned past that $40k mark, the Cadenza represents Kia's desire to be taken seriously as a ...

Pope Francis chauffeured around Korea in a Kia Soul

Aug 15 2014 8:43am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Budget, Government/Legal, Hatchback, Kia, Celebrities, South Korea Korea is not without its domestic automobiles that would be suitable for transporting a visiting head of state: the Hyundai Equus comes to mind. Failing that, a Genesis sedan would do the trick. Maybe even a Kia K900 or a Renault Samsung SM7. But those familiar with Pope Francis and his taste in transportation won ...
