Sometimes we like to just head over to the social media platform Instagram and browse through their endless images. Our favorite thing to do on Instagram is look up Kia hashtags, like #KiaSoul, and then find the best images we can. A few weeks ago, we did this with the Stinger and put a few of our top picks into a gallery for you, so we thought we’d do that again this week with that very hashtag – #KiaSoul. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Read the rest of this entry »

Having kicked off last year, AMCI Global plans to host its Trusted Automotive Brands Study each and every year. When you’re shopping for a vehicle you’re probably thinking about fuel economy and power, but before all of that, you need to think about trust. To purchase a vehicle, you have to have a lot of trust in that vehicle and the manufacturer who created it. That’s why ranking high on this study is incredibly important. So, is Kia one of the most trusted non-luxury brands on the market? Yes, for the second year in a row Kia has earned its spot as one of the most trusted non-luxury brands on the market, alongside two other winners. Read the rest of this entry »

As vehicles become available, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety puts them through their battery of tests to determine just how safe they are. The safety ratings that come as a result of these tests are some of the most highly regarded by consumers on the entire market. If a vehicle gets a bad score from the IIHS, you should probably steer clear. Likewise, if a vehicle achieves an impressive score, that’s a vehicle you should consider. Furthermore, if a specific brand manages to stack up more of these impressive ratings than any other brand, you should simply look at that brand in general. This is why we’re so pleased to inform you that eight, yes eight, Kia models have earned either the 2018 Top Safety Pick or, the only thing that’s higher, a 2018 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.

Last month at the New York International Auto Show, Kia introduced several all-new vehicles that have us even more excited for the future. In addition to the Optima and Sedona, a new version of the top-of-the-line Kia K900 will be gracing the 2019 model year lineup with its presence.
