2018 Kia Stinger GT review

I’d like to start by saying I'm a 20-year-old Kiwi and an ex-Holden revhead, so converting me from a brand that I absolutely loved and had huge amount of passion for was going to take a special sort of car. In early 2017 when the Stinger was revealed, I instantly thought 'wow, this car is amazing' and thought to myself this can’t be true – a Kia sedan with 365hp, surely not? For the rest of the year I was eager to jump in one and see for myself...

2017 Kia Optima GT Nav review

I'm the owner of an MY18 Kia Optima GT in red. In my opinion, it is a great car. Kia has come along way since the ’90s. Good on you, Kia. I have owned three cars made by the Kia group, and each time they have surprised me. As far as handling, performance, looks, comfort and economy go, it’s great. Each day since buying my Optima GT, I can’t wait to drive it again...

2017 Kia Optima GT review

As an owner of 4WD and SUV vehicles for the last 15 years, against the current trends, I decided to make the switch back to a mid-size sedan because of the value they currently represent, and I decided on the Kia Optima GT. I have to say I am extremely happy with this decision for a number of reasons...

2014 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-Tech review

After spending six months looking for a modern midlife-crisis car, I settled on a 2014 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-Tech in what I’ve found to be a rare silver one. Before making my choice, I drove a Toyota 86 and a Hyundai Veloster Turbo prior to the Pro_cee'd. All were manual transmission. The 86 was a typical Toyota (Boring) and not a real four-seater...

2018 Kia Stinger GT review

  We turn our cars over every three years, however I am no longer on the road all the time, so I can now spend a bit more on a car and keep it for a longer period of time. I looked at all the different options in this category, such as the Chrysler, Mustang, Holden (for about five minutes max'), Audis, and BMWs, but this car was by far the most bang for your buck you will find out there in its class...

2016 Kia Carnival SLi review

I know what you are thinking – what made him buy a people mover? Yes, I may have had a vasectomy, but they are still attached! No my life isn't over, just three boys that can't be next to each other for any lengthy period of time. This was a decision made with the head and not with the heart...

2018 Kia Stinger GT review

I purchased the 2018 Kia Stinger GT 3.3 in November 2017 from Kia Yallah. It was an easy, pleasant transaction, and at the same time I ordered the bi-modal exhaust (this also came with the Kia seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty). I was told it would be ready for installation by the end of January. I was number-one on the order form...

2017 Kia Rio SLi review

I'm extremely pleased with the car, but one downfall is the brightness of the display for the air-conditioning controls. There is no adjustment to make it brighter. Also, the car tells you if a door is open or the lights are left on, but get low on fuel and if you don't notice the fuel light or gauge, you're out of luck – there's no audio to beep at you...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT review

“I drive a Kia.” Over the past three years I’ve come to painfully accept that few things, if any, decimate one’s attempt to maintain any credibility of being a car enthusiast than those four words. And that’s even before we get to the poorly punctuated model name...

2017 Kia Picanto S review

As two seniors, we were looking for the smallest, sensibly priced new 'city' car that we could buy. It had to be no bigger than a Yaris and had to be automatic, as Sydney traffic these days is getting too heavy for the daily grind of the manual we have used for the last decade. We narrowed the prospective field down to the Suzuki Ignis, Mitsubishi Mirage, Toyota Yaris and, of course, the Kia Picanto under review...

2018 Kia Stinger GT review

After owning a luxury European sports car for a brief period prior to purchasing my Stinger GT, I was left with a strong taste of dissatisfaction and disappointment with the brand. Problem after problem resulted in the dealership having my car for almost eight weeks in total of the four months of ownership...
