Kia Owner Car Reviews

2016 Kia Sorento Platinum AWD review

I have seen a few young people write reviews and have seen such positive comments that I thought I would write my own! I am a 17-year-old Learner driver, and this is my mum's car. It has done about 18,000km in nine or so months, and I have put on approximately 8000km...

2012 Kia Optima Platinum review

I have owned my KIA Optima Platinum for almost three years now, and not once have I regretted my decision to purchase this car. Before purchasing the Optima I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted in my next car; leather seats, sat-nav, sunroof et cetera and was seriously considering a 2007 Lexus IS250 or a 2009 Alfa Romeo 159 Ti manual...

2013 Kia Grand Carnival S review

I bought my Kia Grand Carnival about six months ago after some careful research. I had read many reviews about the Grand Carnival, some of which were very negative but I was determined to give it a fair chance. My main prerequisite was it had to have a lot of useful cargo space without being too van-like...

2012 Kia Rio S review

The 2012 Kia Rio, it's a good car but it has a major downside, the engine. I got this car from my parents in September 2016 to learn to drive manual, and so far it has been an enjoyable experience considering my car looks like a kitchen appliance. This is the base S five-door model, with a six-speed manual transmission...

2016 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

Having worked for Audi for eight years, it was the biggest surprise to find just how much I love this car. It feels like an Audi on the inside and drives so well. I looked at ALL vehicles in the market and I do mean all. This car could have been $10,000 more and it would still represent better value than its competitors...

2014 Kia Rio SLi Review

This is the second review of my Kia Rio and to give you an idea of the ownership experience I'm doing a 60,000km update. In short, this is a great car. I've experienced only one small hiccup once when it almost stalled, but then it rectified itself. I'm that down to junk in fuel line. I disobeyed my own rule of not letting the tank get low on fuel which can suck up all the crap from the bottom...

2016 Kia Sportage GT-line (AWD) Review

Having had the Sportage for a few weeks I am, so far, very impressed with the value for money it offers. The long list of features on the Platinum series has impressed everybody who has seen the vehicle. The safety features are particularly impressive and the quality of the finish is a testament to Kia's commitment to bringing good value to buyers...

2016 Kia Sportage Platinum (AWD) Review

Terrific SUV! The Platinum version's interior comfort compares easily to that of an Audi or BMW. All option buttons are clearly laid out and well lit at night without over-dazzling you. A big disappointment, however, is there is no CD player or hard drive for your music. Although Bluetooth can stream music from your phone, it can be hit and miss getting it to connect...

2016 Kia Sorento SLI (4x4) Review

After reviewing all available new seven seaters SUVs, we narrowed it down to the Sorento and Mazda CX-9. We decided to go with the Sorento as we did not want to wait for the Mazda and given the price points, couldn't be happier with our decision. The thing that stands out with the Sorento is the value for money equation you get when you actually look deeper into every objective criteria...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT Review

Fourteen months in. I am no expert in relationships but if you spent up to two hours with someone, or something, almost daily you think you would have learnt everything there is to learn. So what have I learnt about my (yes, poorly-named) Pro_cee'd? For starters, I still choose to take the long way home at every opportunity...

2012 Kia Rio S Review

I did not expect to buy a Kia Rio. I went looking for a new Honda Jazz and, even though I liked the Jazz, the Rio presented much better value for money. I have a 5-door in Urban Blue with a six speed manual transmission and a few extras. This is a fun and value packed little car. I drive to work every day through traffic so fuel economy is important to me...
