Soul Power: the 2017 Kia Soul Brings It

Move over crossovers: the 2017 Kia Soul is here and it is making a broad statement. Already, it has been ranked as the number one subcompact crossover by Car and Driver, not only because of its innovation, but because of its value. Let’s take a look at some of the things that make the current model Kia a hit.

The brainchild of one of Kia’s Design Team in Irvine, California, the concept and the creator were sent to the home plant in Korea for finalization. The first Kia Soul model made its debut in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show.

 

One of the features the Soul has always highlighted has been its sound system. This small crossover boasts six speakers on its base model with additional speakers on its upgraded model. In addition, the first generation had both a CD player, and iPod port and a Sirius Satellite Radio. Today’s 2017 Kia Soul now comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto at the base price point, and the premium model comes with a speaker lit sound system that lights up to the beat, making this car a dream for millennial drivers, who are interested in economy and relaxation.

 

The fully loaded model has a panoramic sunroof which is practically an all-glass ceiling. In addition, enjoy an 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, and blind-spot monitoring. Even the steering wheel is upgraded: leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel with tilting and telescoping and heat!

 

As for what’s under the hood, the Kia Soul presents three different powertrain options. The base model offers the standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder, while the mid-range option has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Those who love the Kia will appreciate the now turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four-cylinder engine. Even though it’s available only in a seven-speed automatic transmission, it handles well, accelerating from 0 to 60 in about 6.5 seconds.

 

If you’re looking for soul power in a small package, then the 2017 Kia Soul is just the right fit for you. Stop by Scarboro Kia and take a test drive of this incredible crossover

New Car, Old Name: 2017 Kia Sorento

Up until a decade or so ago, not many people recognized the Kia brand as a household name. However, the truth is that Kia has been in the transportation industry since 1944. Even though it’s gone through several iterations—from merely supplying parts to near bankruptcy—it’s now a company that can hold its own with its own line of cars. One of those models is the new 2017 Kia Sorento.

 

 

The 2017 Kia Sorento is a crossover SUV. Though it sounds like a fancy term, it implies that this type of vehicle has the best of the vehicular world. SUV stands for sport utility vehicle. These types of cars are known for their off-road and recreational usage. Unfortunately, they are also known for their utilitarian nature and tend to provide a bumpy ride. The crossover, sometimes referred to as a CUV, is built on a car frame, giving the car a lower carriage and more stability.

 

This model features available All-Wheel Drive for the adventurer in you. And the bigger the adventures you wish to seek, the bigger the engine can be to accommodate you. There are three available engine sizes: the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, the 2.0-liter turbo engine, or the 3.3-liter V6 AWD.

 

Even if you’re not adventurous, the Sorento can make you feel at ease. Both this and the previous year’s Sorento have been awarded as top picks for various safety awards because of their many features, including front and side airbags, anti-lock braking system, vehicle stability management, tire pressure monitoring system and child safety-lock doors.

 

Kia is a company that has not only a breadth of experience in the auto industry, but also reputation for quality. The 2017 Kia Sorento is a culmination of everything you should look for in a vehicle: versatility, fuel economy, good looks and affordability.

Can you keep up with the Stinger?

Kia Motors has been capturing the attention of the automotive industry and performance car enthusiasts since the world premiere of the Kia Stinger sports sedan at the Detroit auto show in January. Just last week, the Stinger made its Asia debut at the Seoul Motor Show where a 4.9 second 0-100 km/h acceleration time was confirmed for the rear-wheel drive 3.3 turbo powered model. This impressive acceleration performance puts the Stinger near the head of the pack among competing models and is proof-positive that Kia is now challenging the standard for vehicle performance among mainstream brands.

Find out more about the remarkable acceleration and power of the Stinger!

 

GT Defined

 

kia-stinger-gt-awd

 

First things first – What is a “GT”? GT, short for Grand Tourer or Gran Turismo in Italian, refers to performance and luxury vehicles capable of both fast and long-distance driving. GT vehicles boast both unparalleled speed and driving comfort.

The acceleration performance of GT models is evaluated by measuring the time that a vehicle takes to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (or 0-62 mph). There are various factors that can improve a vehicle’s 0-100 km/h time. Improving vehicle acceleration is dependent upon the engine and transmission system, and car makers are constantly working to generate more power by upgrading the exhaust system and turbocharger performance. Reducing vehicle mass and tweaking the exterior design to optimize aerodynamics are also proven methods to shave seconds off of acceleration times.

 

True Gran Turismo: The Kia Stinger GT

Seizing the global spotlight upon its world debut, the Stinger GT stunned the world not only with its sensational exterior design, but also its high-performance capabilities.

Introduced to Asian audiences with striking new colors and details in Seoul, the Stinger dropped another massive surprise for the global audience. With the powerful 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 (rear-wheel drive version), the Stinger will deliver a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 4.9 seconds, surpassing Kia’s original estimate of 5.1 seconds as communicated in Detroit. This makes the sports sedan the fastest accelerating car Kia has ever produced.

Hitting 100 km/h in under five seconds with a maximum speed of 270 km/h, the Stinger is reaching another level of power and performance and revamping the Kia brand. Feel the speed and the velocity of the Stinger in the video below!

 

 

Stinger’s 4.9 second acceleration performance is an incredible feat for Kia and will serve as a starting point for future improvements in vehicle performance. We don’t’ know what the future holds but for now, but in the meantime, can you keep up with the Kia Stinger?
