Kia Carnival is known in the USA as the Sedona.  It 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 [...]

2018 Kia Cerato S Review

By |2019-06-30T00:25:04+10:00March 21st, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Car Type Search, Gay cars fit for a queen?, KIA Reviews|0 Comments

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 [...]

What an amazing car; full of power, style, comfort and luxury, it’s a complete package for a grand tourer sedan.

Kia dropped a toe in the water with second generation Picanto a couple of years ago and it sold in enough numbers to convince Kia to go ahead with gen III. It’s an interesting, cheap to run,  tiddler-size, five-door hatch with a mix of old and new technology and a smattering of advanced driver assist technology. Looks good though, [...]

Kia Australia has an updated version of its much awarded Sorento large SUV available now in dealerships nationwide. A consistently popular model, Kia is hoping the 2018 upgrade puts the Sorento seven-seat SUV on even more family shopping lists, and after sampling the vehicle this week I am sure that will the case. https://youtu.be/G91P_t1-wrc Exterior Changes to the outside [...]

The only car Kia could benchmark new Sorento against, is the old Sorento. It really is that good. Location: The Blue Mountains, New South Wales. A cool, leafy, mountain top is the perfect place to reveal the mid-life makeover of Kia’s biggest SUV, the Sorento. It wasn’t all bluster and breeze, the meat and potatoes was all good news. [...]

The much-hyped big Kia has finally shown its full fury in a mad track day near Canberra. Kia bravely put Australian media behind the wheel at Wakefield Raceway near Goulburn in central NSW. The course has challenging switchbacks and tempting straight-aways, and is far more punishing than anything regular motoring will ever be. MY18 Kia Stinger GT. [...]
