The 2020 Kia Soul Is the Small Crossover for People With Taste

The 2020 Kia Soul Is the Small Crossover for People With Taste

The 2020 Kia Soul is now in its third generation, a fun and practical if not exactly Sporty subcompact crossover that will go on sale next year. It’s for the sensible consumer with taste, someone who wants something that’s reliable and looks cool and that isn’t a Chevy Trax . Kia unveiled it this afternoon in L.A.

The Soul will come with a 1.6-liter inline four cylinder, which is turbocharged...

Hopefully You'll Remember the Kia Cadenza This Time

The Kia Cadenza , a car I forgot was even sold in America, is getting a very heavy design overhaul for its mid-cycle refresh this year to keep its competitiveness with the likes of the Toyota Avalon and Buick LaCrosse piping hot. If you are surprised one of those cars also still exists and that they need “competition” at all, you are not alone.

Kia has released four teaser images, including...

The Kia Habaniro Concept Has an Absurd Name But Looks Hot

The Kia Habaniro Concept Has an Absurd Name But Looks Hot

The Kia Habaniro will debut in New York next month, but an image of it appeared in a newsletter ahead of the New York International Auto Show, seemingly accidentally. It looks slick as hell.

Habaniro, get it? Like “habanero,” the peppers, and Niro , the baby crossover thing. CarScoops got the, uh, scoop. The Habaniro is one of more than a few Kia concepts the company has been rolling out in...

Kia Is Practically Giving Away Stingers

Kia Is Practically Giving Away Stingers

We don’t need to remind you that the new Kia Stinger is a very good car. Though I will say that while the V6 model gets all the press, the cheaper turbo-four car is still a pretty awesome vehicle. And if you are in the market for a stylish and fun fastback, there are some incredible deals right now.

Hyundai, Kia Recall 200,000 Vehicles for Fire Risk, Nearly 4 Million to Update Engine Software

Hyundai, Kia Recall 200,000 Vehicles for Fire Risk, Nearly 4 Million to Update Engine Software

Hyundai and Kia both recently issued big, and somewhat complicated, voluntary recalls in the U.S. for millions of 2011 to 2018 car models, which have been the subject of hundreds of reports about engine bay fires. Most of the recall, though, is just a software update to alert drivers that their engine might fail.

Hyundai and Kia published recall statements on Jan. 16 and Jan. 11,...

The 2019 Kia Stinger Gets IIHS' Top Safety Award, but Its Headlight Ratings Are All Over the Place

The 2019 Kia Stinger Gets IIHS' Top Safety Award, but Its Headlight Ratings Are All Over the Place

The Kia Stinger is a great car that might not do a few things enthusiasts would like, such as come with a manual or offer its 365-horsepower turbocharged V6 for less than $40,000. But if there’s one thing the Stinger can do, it can protect its occupants well in a crash—even if its headlight quality is all over the place.

That’s according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, at...

The 2020 Kia Telluride Is a Pretty Nice SUV to Drive and Sleep In

The 2020 Kia Telluride Is a Pretty Nice SUV to Drive and Sleep In
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

The fact that Kia is building a large seven/eight-seater SUV is about as surprising as discovering that the Twinkie you’ve just bitten into contains an interior chamber, filled with a white, sweet, creamery substance. It’s a move so safe that I’d tell it my bank card PIN, if it asked. People will buy these, because, it seems,...

The 2020 Telluride Is Kia's Biggest, Beefiest Vehicle Yet

Do you love “rugged luxury”? Do you love a big, bold SUV that’s just begging you to pack the kids into the backseat and hit the dusty road, and by “dusty road” a mean “a mall parking lot”? Do you love buying American-built vehicles? Then the 2020 Telluride—Kia’s largest vehicle yet—might just be the perfect SUV for you. And this time , you can actually purchase it.

Hyundai, Kia Called On to Recall 3 Million Cars After Rampant Reports of Random Fires

A Virginia teenager driving his mother’s Kia Soul in July saw smoke and pulled over. He said the “whole car went up in flames” in about five minutes, burning to a shell of its former self. Hundreds of others reported similar, prompting an advocacy group to demand Hyundai and Kia recall 2.9 million vehicles.

This Kia Costs $34,000 to Repair and It's Not Alone 

New cars come with all sorts of advanced technology designed to keep drivers safe, but all those safety-increasing gadgets come with a price—and it’s not just the initial cost of the technology that’s hitting car owners hard.

Take, for example, the Kia K900 . You probably don’t think about Kia’s $49,900, V6 or V8-powered luxury sedan that shares a lot of guts with the Genesis G80 and Kia...

Kia Naming Its Concept SUV 'Masterpiece' Is a Bit Rich

Kia Naming Its Concept SUV 'Masterpiece' Is a Bit Rich

Here’s the tricky thing with car names: Sometimes they mean things. And so people project those meanings back onto the object or person bearing the name and sometimes the two don’t always align. Like with Kia’s new Masterpiece concept. That is its name. It definitely aims high, to say the least.

The Masterpiece was unveiled at the 2019 Seoul Motor Show today and is described as a “large SUV...

Back at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Kia showed off a good looking three row SUV concept called the Telluride , and now what appears to be a production version of it has been spotted in the wild.

Despite the desperate amount of horseshit found in the press release for the Kia Telluride concept, which we called out for including smart sensors that detected its passengers’ vital signs and would...

The Kia Elan Proved Lotus Can't Fix Everything

Under the category of “extremely unlikely to pass off a car to Kia,” Lotus might top the list. Any sports car manufacturer, really. But this was a real thing that happened. And it resulted in the birth of an unlikely hero in 1996, the Kia Elan .

Back in the 1980s, Lotus was busy trying to create its next sports car to bring it back to their roots. Small, lightweight, rear-wheel drive, after...
