2021 Kia K5 – Most Powerful Kia Sedan Ever Unveiled!
As the title says, the 2021 Kia K5 has been unveiled as the most powerful Kia mid-sized sedan on the market today! It has a powerful and bold appearance, bringing in the Kia Stinger design while also expanding on it and bringing a ton more to the table. What are some of the features found on this great vehicle, you ask? Continue reading below in order to find out!(more…)
What would you say to 50 mpg?
Now, you might be thinking: from a Kia? And, we admit, it does sound kind of far-fetched.
Sure, the Kia Soul EV is rated at 120 MPGe in the city–but it can only run for 90 miles. The Kia Optima Hybrid can run all day, and can offer up to 40 mpg on the highway, but it's not the best choice for everyone.
But with the release of the all-new 2017 Kia Niro hybrid SUV in Chicago last week, Kia is changing everything we thought we knew about hybrids, and possibly changing the entire future of the new hybrid model lineup at Motion Kia.
See the new Kia Niro in the flesh in Chicago, and see just why this model is such a surprise.
So, how does Kia propose to follow up with their 50 mpg claim? Simple, they say.
The 2017 Niro is built on a dedicated hybrid platform–the first of its kind for the brand. It's lighter than originally expected, thanks to weight reduction. Its 1.6-liter engine delivers optimum efficiency with new technology, while its electric motor and smartly-placed battery reduces the load on the engine. A series of innovative braking systems and driver-assist programs add that final boost to take this hybrid crossover into a whole new territory.
We know that we're excited–how about you? Weigh in on social media using the hashtag #KiaNiro.
When you think of a solid compact SUV, what qualities come to mind?
Well, regardless of your response, chances are that the 2016 Kia Sportage has them. It’s one altogether undeniable utility vehicle.
And, as for what those qualities are, we ask that you turn your attention to the following video. Auto Trader UK Road Test Editor, Ivan Aistrop, is here today to the deliver the inside scoop:
A pair of brilliant four-bangers make up the Sportage’s powertrain portfolio. The first, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that’s good for a healthy 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, is standard on the entry-level LX and EX models.
If that doesn’t quite do the trick, you may was to step it up to the Sportage’s top-tier trim, the SX. Outfitted with a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder, the SX turns out a titanic 260 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. It’s the perfect pick for the performance enthusiast.
If you’d like to meet this marvelous machine “in the metal,” or wish to put one through its paces on the open road, we encourage you to pay us a visit at our Hackettstown, NJ location. Upon your stopover, we’ll be sure to set you up with a test drive in the Sportage, or any other Kia model that’s crossed your mind.
A Kia press release from just a couple days ago reminds us of the stark fact that "per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash." Well, Kia is partnering with B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe) to try to combat this statistic.
Doug Herbert, founder of B.R.A.K.E.S. and recent recipient of the Peter K. O'Rourke Special Achievement Award from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), comments on the partnership in the press release as follows: “B.R.A.K.E.S. is committed to providing teens with the practical experience and training they need to make safer decisions on the road and prepare for the hazardous conditions they may encounter. We look forward to continuing to work with Kia in 2016 to bring the training to new cities in an effort to continue to reduce teen driving accidents nationwide.”

We at Motion Kia are starting to think that there aren’t enough acclamatory adjectives in the English language to properly depict how we feel about our midsize sedan, the 2016 Kia Optima. It’s straight-up spectacular.
So, instead, we’d like to link the following video. Join Autotrader pundit, Jabari Jones, as he enumerates this four-door’s best qualities:
The Optima model catalog is comprised of five unique trims. And it all starts with the exquisitely appointed base model, the LX.
Standard features on this trim include 16-inch alloy wheels, a six-way power driver seat (with power lumbar), a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40-split-rear seatback, a rearview camera, 5-inch display screen and Bluetooth compatibility. The sheer value of this vehicle cannot be overstated.

Today we learned that Road & Travel Magazine (RTM) has selected the 2016 Optima for its 20th annual International Car of the Year award. This is the second time in four years that that RTM has chosen Optima for the coveted honor. It first won the award in 2013. ICOTY judges honored the Cadenza and K900 sedans in 2014 and 2015, respectively; making this the fourth win in a row for the KIA brand.
RTM also chose the 2016 as the International SUV of the Year. Michael Sprague, COO of KMA, commented on the awards: “To win the prestigious ICOTY award four years in a row, with two models winning their categories this year, is a clear indication that our products continue to offer a world-class balance of design, amenities, craftsmanship, safety and value for today’s savvy consumers.”
Although we've written a lot about the 2016 Kia Optima already and all the exciting styling changes, there's more to this new sedan than it's evolutionary redesign. Kia has gone at great lengths to nudge the boundaries of everything we love about this midsize, and it's results are larger than life.
The new Optima boasts a more rigid body structure and increased dimensions, improving trunk space and interior volume. You'll also find a whole lot more unscale materials here–with the addition of new fabrics on some of the higher trims. For power, the familiar turbocharged engine has been rebuilt with exciting low end torque, and up to 39 mpg on the highway.
Learn more about the Optima in the first drive report below.
