2017 Kia Sportage named AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle_o

Each year, AutoPacific hosts the Ideal Vehicle Awards by handing out a national survey. In the survey, more than 54,000 people who own vehicles belonging to the 2016 or 2017 model year are asked about fifteen specific areas of their vehicle. The question that AutoPacific asks of their survey takers is what about these areas – including things like cabin storage, safety features, performance and ride quality – they would like to change in their vehicle.

Kia Stonic Concept Car Photo Gallery_o

Not long ago we introduced you to a new concept car that has been rolled out in Europe as a model on the Kia lineup, and we’re crossing our fingers that the subcompact crossover will make its way across the pond here to North America.

There is perhaps no more common summer activity than going for a walk or a hike or even just a sit at a park during the incredible summer weather.

What is the Kia Stonic?

By blogsadmin | Posted in Kia Stonic on Monday, July 17th, 2017 at 4:52 PM

While we are obviously big fans of the vehicles that are already available on the Kia lineup, we always love when new models are introduced, like the Kia Stinger. As you might have noticed by taking a look around the automotive market, the subcompact crossover segment is rapidly increasing in popularity. At this point, Kia doesn’t have a vehicle in that segment, but it’s possible something will be filling it rather soon, as Kia recently introduced the Kia Stonic, a vehicle that will soon be available in markets outside North America.
