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.

Student-Designed Visio.M EV Concept: How BMW’s i3 Should Have Looked

Oct 24 2014 12:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

BMW’s i3 electric hatchback is a lot of things—efficient, futuristic, packed with technology—but it isn’t exactly what you’d call handsome, at least not in the traditional sense. Students at the Technical University Munich (TUM), with backing from both BMW and Daimler, have come up with a solution—well, more of an alternative—in the form of an electric car that looks remarkably similar to the i3, albeit better-looking. The students’ i3 lookalike is called the Project ...

Kia Pumps Up The K900 For SEMA: Video

Oct 24 2014 5:30am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

Kia’s K900 flagship sedan is still fresh on the market, having gone on sale here only in March. However, the car hasn’t managed to gain traction yet, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise as it can't be easy convincing shoppers to drop $60k on a vehicle from a brand mostly known for its affordability. Sales of the K900 ...

Kia Soul

Oct 23 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The Kia Soul is a hatchback with a vivid visual personality--one that's given it a leg up in establishing its new nameplate. While other boxy vehicles like the Nissan Cube and Scion xB have withered on the sales vine, the Soul has become one of Kia's most popular vehicles in the U.S.--and that's in part because of its kicky look.
