2018-20 Kia Optima recalled

Kia Australia has issued a recall for the 2018-2020 model-year Optima sedan over concerns the autonomous emergency braking system may fail to activate. According to the Korean manufacturer, the 'Frontal Collision-Avoidance Assist' software may have an error, which means the emergency brake function may not work when approaching a stationary vehicle.

Kia pickup development underway

Kia Australia is confident its Korean parent, Kia Motors Corp (KMC), has commenced development of a ute range to rival the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, and expects a market launch in 2022/23. The long-awaited Kia pickup — which will probably be based on a platform shared with Hyundai — would be the final piece in the puzzle for the brand as it seeks to fill gaps in its product range.

2020 Kia XCeed teased ahead of June 26 reveal

Kia Motors Europe has published the first official photo of the all-new XCeed crossover, ahead of its market launch later this year. Based on the Euro-market Ceed hatchback, which itself shares components with the Hyundai i30 and the Kia Cerato sold here, the new XCeed has been revealed with a side-on image showing the vehicle's sporty fastback silhouette. It looks like Kia is going to be creative with the colour options, too, given the eye-catching shade of yellow we can see here.
