Will there be a Kia Sports Car?
One of the things that we have loved about Kia’s vehicle redesigns the past few years has been all of the upscale and performance changes they have made to their vehicles.

However, what we really want to see is a full-on Kia Sports Car, one that is built specifically for the track. Will there be a Kia Sports Car? It’s looking like it. (more…)

Kia Seven-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission
What we have noticed about people is that they often only care about the big changes that they can see. These would be new body styles of familiar vehicles, or just brand new vehicles altogether. Also, new interiors with additional features tend to be recognized quite quickly. What people often don’t notice as huge changes are what’s taking place under the hood. With the new Kia seven-speed dual-clutch transmission making its American debut later this year, we figured it’s time to catch people up on one of the biggest changes they may have overlooked.

Now we aren’t exactly “experts” on the history of all vehicles across all manufactures and what vehicles have won what awards, but it is fair to say that not many of them have had a year as impressive as the 2015 Kia Sedona.

2016 Kia Optima Color Options

The 2017 Kia Sportage interior redesign is almost, if not more, significant than the exterior, which should have fans of the vehicle extremely excited. (more…)
