2019 Kia ProCeed unveiled

The new Kia ProCeed has been revealed ahead of its in-the-flesh debut at the 2018 Paris motor show at the beginning of October. With buyers deserting three-door hatchbacks in favour of five-door models or crossovers, the new ProCeed not only ditches the previous car's torturous Pro_Cee'd name, but adopts a rakish, but still practical five-door shooting brake body...

Overnight, Kia unveiled the new Kia Ceed GT in Europe, as well as the Kia K3 GT for the South Korean market. These cars preview the powertrain likely to feature in next year's Cerato GT. Under the bonnet, the Ceed GT and K3 GT are powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre direct-injection four-cylinder engine, which generates 150kW of power at 6000rpm, and 265Nm of torque between the 1500 and 4500rpm...

2019 Kia Soul EV spied with less camouflage

The next-generation Kia Soul EV has been spied again this week on the streets of Europe, minus the black sheets and false body panels shielding previous prototypes. While the body is still wrapped in a swirly black-and-white disguise, we can see the overall shape of the new Kia Soul won't change drastically from the current model, meaning it should still appeal to current fans...

2020 Kia Telluride unveiled

The Kia Telluride, like the models strutting the catwalk this week, was dressed up to the nines when it made its debut at Brandon Maxwell’s Texas-inspired show during New York Fashion Week. Appropriately, the Telluride on display in New York is a one-of-a-kind model dressed up with off-roading gear, including bash plates, unique bumpers, a snorkel, spot lights, new side steps, and a tailgate-mounted spare tyre...

2019 Kia Telluride photographed undisguised

The new Kia Telluride crossover has been spotted completely undisguised while undergoing testing the Middle East. Thanks to CarAdvice reader Ryan for pointing us towards these photos, which were posted on the Bobaedream forums. The production Telluride carries over many of the design cues used on the 2016 concept car, including the boxy rectangular shape, rounded corners and surfacing – all of which serve to emphasise the car's size...

Cars We Own: 2017 Kia Stinger 330Si diary

The Kia Stinger ignites passionate debate like few other cars we've driven at CarAdvice. With a big engine up front, loads of space in the middle and power going to the rear, there was no shortage of hype. As soon as it arrived in Australia, we knew we wanted to buy one. Here it is, resplendent in Hichroma Red...

2019 Kia ProCeed teased

The rear of the new Kia ProCeed has been teased ahead of its unveiling on September 13, European time. Although previous generations of the Pro_Cee'd were three-door hatchbacks, the new model loses an underscore and an apostrophe, but gains two doors to become a shooting brake...

2019 Kia Soul Electric spied

The Kia Soul EV has been spied doing development laps around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Although this latest prototype is wearing the same level of disguise as the model spotted back in February, this vehicle is fitted with all the trim pieces it will use once in production. Despite the car bra, we can see the new Soul will retain the same overall shape and design theme as the first two generations...

2018 Kia Optima Si review

Fresh faced as part of a midlife update, the 2018 Kia Optima plots a steady course in a declining market segment, but is Kia’s midsizer any better or worse than the rest of its often underappreciated competitors?

2019 Kia Cerato Sport+ review

The new Cerato Sport+ is ripper value and a comfortable cruiser, though lacks the performance to live up to its name.

2019 Kia Cerato Sport+ review

It may not be the most flashy or exciting mode of transport, the Kia Cerato Sport+ is a spacious, comfortable, and fuss-free option in the ever-competitive small car segment, bolstered by its ripper value-for-money equation thanks to its high level of standard equipment and market-leading customer care program.

Kia preparing individual 'sound zones' for future stereos

Ever fought over the road trip playlist with your family? Kia wants to make that a thing of the past with its Separated Sound Zone technology. The new Separated Sound Zone (SSZ) setup works by isolating individual audio fields, with speakers scattered around the cabin to reduce or amplify certain frequencies and cut any 'overlap' between the sound zones...

2018 Kia Carnival v Mazda CX-9 v Volkswagen Multivan Kombi 70 comparison

MPV. SUV. LCV. Three acronyms. Three different styles of vehicle designed to shift large families. The Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) camp is represented by the Kia Carnival that accounts for about half of all people-mover sales in Australia. Released in 2015 in third-generation form, the Korean eight-seater has been given an update for 2018...

Kia Stinger GT: Michelin tyres to replace Continental in Australia

Kia has made the bold move of switching tyre allegiance for Stinger GT models in Australia, ditching Continental for Michelin. We first reported we were unimpressed with the longevity of the Continental ContiSport Contact 5 tyres fitted to the Stinger GT when we tested it against the Holden Commodore SS-V Redline last year...

Kia Australia: 10-year warranty not out of the question

Kia led the warranty charge in Australia with its seven-year, unlimited-kilometre offering, and appears determined to maintain its leadership in the space. The company has once again confirmed it would consider a 10-year warranty, if the wider market encroached on its turf by extending to seven years. There's no guarantee it'll be required, of course...
