Sportage by KIA Launch VIDEO Review in Canberra Australia

Sportage gen 4 has been a favourite KIA since its launch in 2016. With looks slightly reminiscent of Range Rover’s Evoque, Sportage looks just as posh. It looks even better now, especially in GT-Line guise. LED lighting is brand new. There are bejeweled headlamps and driving lights, and an incredibly sexy tail lamp array which make Sportage stunning at [...]

January 2016 was when Kia launched the fourth generation of the Sportage Compact SUV into the Australian market. About 2 1/2 years later the increasingly popular brand is upgrading the mid-size Sportage with a mid-model life enhancement. The key refinements include: Diesel drivetrain gains eight-speed auto Revised suspension brings more refined and compliant ride Revised subframe and steering geometry [...]

2018 Kia Stinger 4-Cylinder Review

By |2019-06-29T19:33:44+10:00June 25th, 2018|4 Cylinder, AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, KIA Reviews|0 Comments

There's a lot to like about the Kia Stinger, but how does the four-cylinder version compare to the V6? That's a question that is pretty easy to answer - it really doesn't. The two versions of Kia's new (and first) large sedan are like chalk and cheese when it comes to the driving experience. Interestingly, I actually came away [...]

2019 Kia Cerato gets sexier

By |2019-06-30T16:19:10+10:00June 8th, 2018|Gay cars fit for a queen?, KIA Reviews, Video Reviews|0 Comments

You expect “cheap and cheerful” when you think Kia, but what you might not expect is “tasteful and elegant”, and that is what new Cerato is. When a buyer visits a showroom they will sit in each car, trying them on for size. Like a good book, if the shopper isn’t hooked at first sight, the venture is lost. The [...]

Kia Carnival, known in the USA as the Sedona, is the best selling people mover in the country according to VFACTS, and Kia. It’s the sensible choice for those who fancy tea and Tim Tams at three. It is tough and reliable. Above all has enough space to transport the team to a game, then double as the playing [...]

By |2019-07-24T15:57:38+10:00May 10th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, KIA Reviews|0 Comments

When you drill right down, Kia’s Sorento is arguably THE best value SUV on the market right now, especially the top of the range, diesel only, GT-Line model driven at $58,990. Compare it with anything you like at up to twice the price from Germany, the US or Japan  and the Kia comes out trumps on most scores. More [...]

2018 Kia Cerato S Review

I’d have thought Kia’s Sportage or Rio would be its top seller here but no, it’s the Cerato small car in sedan and hatch that tops the sales charts. It’s because Cerato offers great value for money especially the test drive entry level S model with six speed auto selling for an incredible $19,990 drive away. Add the optional [...]

The Kia Stinger is epitome of what the South Korean brand is capable of producing right now. What an amazing car; full of power, style, comfort and luxury, it’s a complete package for a grand tourer sedan. I was already impressed by the smaller engine version of the Stinger I test drove last year and now the Stinger GT [...]
