23. December 2015 10:39 by Administrator | 0 Comments

It’s almost here! You may have heard about the All-New 2017 Sportage: the compact SUV that’s been stirring the automotive industry at shows across the globe. But soon, you too will be able to join in the excitement of experiencing our bold new design for yourself.

Outside, you’ll find attractive available features like the 19-inch machine-finished alloy wheels, quad LED fog lights, LED lightbar taillights and adaptive HID headlights that change with the angle of the steering wheel. There’s also an available Smart power liftgate that opens all on its own when you’re standing at the rear of the vehicle with the Smart key fob!

While it’s true that a few glances will be all it takes to fall in love with the all-new 2017 Sportage, it’s when you’re behind the wheel that the real excitement begins.

Once in the captain’s seat, you’ll be spoilt with comfort thanks to the available 10-way adjustable seat that’s heated and cooled; the available dual-zone climate control and even an available heated steering wheel.

You’ll also have all the technology you could dream of at the command of your touch and your voice. The 2017 Sportage comes available with an 8-inch touchscreen that includes voice-activated navigation, Bluetooth capability and Android Auto. Keeping with the theme of making everything wireless, the Sportage also has an available wireless charging pad for smartphones!

For the adventurer in all of us, the power and fuel-efficiency of the available 241-horse, 2.0L turbocharged GDI engine lets you choose just how quickly you’ll arrive at your destination. When paired with the available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, you’ll have the capability to handle all conditions and just about any terrain along the way. 

The new Sportage lets you manage all of that power confidently with a host of advanced safety features that help you stay on track. Available features include Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning and an Autonomous Emergency Braking system that helps you react faster for unanticipated slow downs.

The list of features is nearly endless in the 2017 Sportage, which is why you have to check out Kia.ca for even more exciting and innovative changes we’ve made to turn our 4th generation Sportage into our best one yet. Although reading about it is one thing, we urge you to see the Sportage for yourself at the upcoming Canadian auto shows and experience it when it hits showroom floors early 2016!

The All-New 2016 Optima

22. December 2015 11:28 by Administrator | 0 Comments

The All-New 2016 Optima is redefining performance for you – whoever you may be. That’s because the Optima isn’t a sports sedan, a family car or a luxury car. It doesn’t fit into these tight little boxes the automotive world likes to place cars in. Instead, it brings together the best elements of all these things in one exciting package and it’s redefining the way each one performs. So whatever you look for in a car, the Optima will surely exceed your expectations.

The 2016 Optima not only has new performance options in the form of 3 engine choices, it offers drivers a way to tap into what they want out of them with selectable Drive Modes. So when you want a sports sedan, select sport mode to stiffen up the steering, increase engine responsiveness, and take advantage of the sport-tuned suspension while you let the available 2.0L turbo engine push you back in your seat. But if you prefer a more leisurely, fuel-efficient commute, then eco mode is for you.

David Hearn: From K900 to Sorento

22. December 2015 11:12 by Administrator | 0 Comments

David Hearn caught Kia Canada’s attention in 2011 when he was named SCOREGolf’s Canadian Male Pro Golfer of the Year. With a return to the PGA Tour in 2011, where he’s had four solid seasons, he’s become known for a sharp short game and consistent play. Hearn was a perfect fit for the Kia brand because while being an elite-level athlete, he’s a devoted family man.

 

 

“Kia is a car that I trust personally, with the style and quality I need for both myself and my family. As much as I love golf, my family is what matters most. It is important for me to partner with a quality company like Kia”.

As a proud ambassador, Hearn represents Kia on the PGA Tour, wearing the Kia logo on the chest of his golf shirt. He also represents Kia off the course – using the vehicles as his family’s daily driver. Over the past year, he’s been driving in style in the K900.

He and his family were very impressed with Kia’s luxury car. With its incredibly quiet interior and powerful V8, they not only found it fun to drive, but more than deserving of its premium designation. As a family man, Hearn was looking for safety first and given the many features included, the K900 definitely stood out. He also required a practical vehicle with enough room for his family, luggage and of course, his clubs. Now, whenever he talks about Kia to friends on tour, he recommends the K900 to everyone, as he feels it stacks up with the best manufacturers in the world.

Next year, Hearn will be driving the All-New 2016 Sorento. He and his family are looking forward to getting into the new model, having enjoyed another Sorento in the past. Getting back into an SUV means even more cargo space than before – which is most welcome when travelling to airports and tournaments with two kids and luggage for all. Another reason they’re looking forward to getting into the Sorento is its Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system. Not only will it provide them with the safety and comfort they need, but the capability to handle Canadian winters with ease.

To hear what David Hearn had to say about his experience in Kia vehicles, check out the video below! For more information on the K900, the All-New 2016 Sorento and the rest of the Kia line-up, visit Kia.ca.

The 2016 Sedona: Safety First

4. November 2015 13:29 by Administrator | 0 Comments

The all-new 2016 Sedona features beautifully crafted, luxurious features like the available Nappa leather wrapped, reclining, heated rear seats with leg rests and available tri-zone automatic climate control. Which is why you’d never want to see it in any dire situations, like dangling from a crane for example. But sometimes to prove a point, you need to go to extreme lengths – or heights. You see, in the case of the Sedona, these luxurious features weren’t the first thing on our engineers’ minds – the families who will be driving it were.

So before thinking of how many cup holders should be included and what seating material families would enjoy, they instead thought of how we can make this the safest possible vehicle for families to enjoy.

Safety starts from the ground up. With the Sedona, that means using 52% advanced high-strength steel throughout the body to provide front and roof reinforcement as well as front and side impact dispersion to ensure your family’s protection in the event of a collision. Working with this rigid structure is an advanced system of front-impact airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. But to prevent a collision from occurring is a long list of active safety systems like the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, the Traction Control System (TCS), Cornering Brake Control (CBC) and many more advanced systems that gives you assured command of the road.

Now, of course seeing all of this hard work being dropped 41 feet from a crane would be an utter shame. But to demonstrate how all of this focus on safety has paid off and why the Sedona is so deserving of a Top Safety Pick by IIHS and a 5-Star Safety Rating by NHTSA, we did just that in a new kind of crash test video and we’d love for you to see the results below.

All-new 2017 Sportage revealed at Frankfurt Motor Show

7. October 2015 16:11 by Administrator | 0 Comments

Big news out of Frankfurt earlier this week: the all-new 2017 Sportage made its grand debut.

Pretty easy on the eyes, right? The redesigned Sportage is a bold and new direction for the compact SUV. Taking inspiration from modern fighter jets, the Sportage finds harmony in the tension between sharp feature lines and smooth surfacing.

What’s more, the 2017 model’s iconic tiger-nose grille has been separated from the headlamps. When combined with the quad fog lights along with the lower and wider grille, the result is a distinctly sporty and imposing appearance.

 

While the new design is impressive, the all-new Sportage’s appeal goes well beyond the surface. The interior has been completely rethought, boasting a wide, driver-oriented dashboard, luxurious materials, more passenger space and greater soundproofing measures. You’ll feel like you’ve arrived well before you reach your destination.

Safety, as always, is a top priority for Kia. Some of the Sportage’s many safety features include ultra-high tensile steel used to help shape the body and provide a dramatically stronger structure. Another feature is Autonomous Emergency Braking which uses a radar detection system to distinguish a potential collision with another vehicle or pedestrian, and helps to bring the car to a stop.

Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be a Kia without advancement in modern technology, convenience, and comfort. The new 2017 Sportage is outfitted with an inductive wireless charger for mobile devices enabling users to charge their phone without a wire connection! Plus, Android Auto is available to complement the 7 or 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, giving drivers the familiar experience found in Google Maps, Google Play Music, Google Hangouts Messaging and other Android services.
