The 2022 Kia Niro EV is a capable little crossover with nearly 240 miles of range per charge and plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Kia’s small crossover is available in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric versions. This upgrade to the base Niro adds essential driver-assist technologies and premium comfort and convenience features to an exceptional hybrid range—all in a seriously fun-to-drive package with plenty of interior space.  

The Kia Niro is a fan favorite and known for its reliability with an overall 4.6 Kelley Blue Book Rating (out of 5), and the Kia Niro EV can expect to be held to the same high standards. Full of new features including standard wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, remote start with a key fob, and smart cruise control- curve with stop and go, the Kia Niro EV brings comfort and tech to the table.  

The hybrid innovation to the Kia Niro provides a fun driving experience. The Niro’s 1.6L, gasoline-direct injection (GDI) engine provides the necessary power to the hybrid drivetrain—so there’s no sacrifice in the fun-to-drive department. Drive with fewer stops to refuel with the regenerative braking system that captures the energy produced when you slow down and uses it to recharge Niro’s lithium-ion drive battery. The dual power system pairs a gasoline engine with an electric motor to deliver up to an EPA-estimated 53/48/50 (City/Highway/Combined) MPG for the Niro LX, keeping more of your money in your wallet. 

The Niro EV got a sporty redesign compared to the base Niro, styling a bold front grille that features a diamond pattern, giving it a 3-D look that makes an exciting first impression. The interior space flexes to fit your life with a standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat that allows for up to 63.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The Kia Niro EV didn’t skimp on the tech features either. The command center in the driver’s cabin offers a standard 8.0-inch display and available 10.25-inch touchscreen display with split-screen capability to allow access to available features like the voice command navigation system. Call or send texts with ease using the standard Apple CarPlay or Android Auto that allows you to communicate while never lifting a finger off the wheel or taking your eyes off the road.  

Stay safe on the road with advanced driver assist technology featuring forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision warning, lane following assist, smart cruise control, and driver attention warning with leading vehicle departing alert.

The available V6 engine also features a new electronic variable exhaust valve for satisfyingly sweet engine notes. The 2022 Kia Stinger comes standard with the nimble handling of rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring control is available for enhanced handling and stability under heavy cornering or a variety of low-grip surfaces. 

Enjoy a beautiful interior featuring a standard 10.25-inch touch screen that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Sink into the low-slung seating profile and ergonomic, contoured bucket seats with standard front seat heating and available 16-way power controls that cradle you in every curve. Show off to your friends with the new Stinger’s refreshed interior design, featuring metallic accents and standard leather-trimmed seats, or upgrade to Chain-Volume Nappa leather seat trim, inspired by classic high-end watch design. 

The 2022 Kia Stinger offers the same advanced driver safety features as the other 2022 models in addition to the low-beam assist. A dynamic low beam assist is designed to track your steering angle and vehicle speed to help enhance directional lighting, keeping the road clear even on the darkest of nights.

Kia seltos

Kia Seltos Named 2021 Best New Model and Best Buy Award in the Subcompact SUV Segment by Kelley Blue Book

Article Source: Kelley Blue Book

The 2021 Kia Seltos has won Kelley Blue Book’s 2021 Best Buy Award in the subcompact SUV segment because of its excellent interior packaging, smart combination of practical and upscale interior amenities, and wide array of advanced safety features. It does all of this with a starting price of around $23,000, which makes the Seltos an undeniably good value. Those characteristics impressed KBB so much that they also selected it as this year’s Best New Model in the KBB Best Buy Award program.

As we saw last year with the Kia Telluride – the 2020 Best Buy Awards Best New Model – when it comes to entering a popular segment, Kia does its homework. In the case of the Seltos, that meant ensuring there is enough space in the front and rear rows for all passengers. Kia also placed a high priority on easy-to-use connectivity and tech. An 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity come standard on the Seltos. Also standard is Bluetooth technology that allows you to connect two devices at the same time.

Inner space

It may sound strange to describe a subcompact SUV as roomy, but it’s appropriate here. The Seltos has front seats that are comfortable and there’s plenty of head and legroom, but the real shocker is the space in the second row. Not only is rear-seat legroom the best in its class, but its 38 inches of room is comparable to what you would find in a full-size sedan. And, everyone sitting in the back of the Seltos has reclining seats.

Not only that, the extra interior space does not come at the expense of this Kia’s cargo volume. It has best-in-class space for cargo behind the second row; fold down those seats and the cargo volume swells to 62.8 cu ft., also best in class.

Affordable safety

Even the lowest-priced version – the Seltos S – comes standard with safety features such as lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. This is in addition to standard front airbags, seat-mounted side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, hill-start assist, downhill brake control, rear occupant alert, and tire-pressure monitoring

All-wheel drive (AWD) is standard on the LX, and AWD models come with a lock mode for added traction. Seltos SUVs that come with AWD – standard on every trim level but the S – also come with independent rear suspension for better ride and handling. Stepping up to higher trim levels adds adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, and safe-exit assist. You can also get highway-driving assist. This semi-autonomous system controls steering, acceleration, and braking based on the vehicle’s cruise control settings.

Standout value

Kia’s pricing of the Seltos gives buyers a choice of trim levels at the same base price. Both the LX and the S start at $23,100. If you want standard AWD, look to the LX. However, if you opt for the S, you still benefit from additional safety features. For a mere $1,500 more, you also get AWD. Even if you wanted to go all out, choosing the Seltos SX with its turbocharged engine and AWD and adding a sunroof and two-tone roof, pricing is still a reasonable $30,000.

But the Kia Seltos isn’t just a vehicle that checks all the right boxes. It’s how Kia integrated these elements into a subcompact SUV that’s versatile, easy to use, and comfortable that makes it such a great choice. The Seltos is one of the best-looking subcompact SUVs on the market. The spacious interior is loaded with features that are intuitive to use. You can get the Seltos at the lowest price with plenty of impressive advanced safety features, with even more available. Not to be forgotten, it’s also backed by one of the best warranties in the business. It’s for all of these reasons that KBB chose the Kia Seltos as the Best New Model for 2021.

To aid in the fight against COVID-19, Peak Kia North in Windsor, Colo. has donated more than 100 face shields for use at Mountain View Elementary. This delivery is the latest element of Kia Motors’ Accelerate The Good program, which includes national and local level initiatives implemented in response to the pandemic. Each of Kia’s 757 retailers nationwide is making similar donations to the hospital or medical facility of their choosing, totaling more than 75,000 face shields across all 50 states.

“Kia has really stepped up in this time of need and we are honored to do our part and by helping Mountain View Elementary in the fight against COVID-19 by providing badly needed face shields to educators here in Windsor,” said Jeffrey Taylor, Owner of Peak Kia North. “We are grateful for the hard work and dedication these educators exhibit every day to support our community.”

The latest face shield deliveries are the latest in a series of initiatives Kia Motors America implemented in response to COVID-19. The program, called Accelerate The Good, previously saw Kia donating $1 million to multiple non-profit partners that assist homeless youth nationwide, including Covenant House, StandUp for Kids, and Family Promise. The $1 million donation was designed to help homeless youth in all 50 states receive much-needed shelter and care needed during this time. In addition, earlier face shield donations – more than 300,000 thus far – were made to hospitals and medical facilities in hard-hit metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, and New York City.

To be eligible, vehicles must be all-new or substantially new and must be available at dealerships close to the announcement of the awards. The Telluride prevailed over a field of 12 semi-finalists and three finalists in the utility category.

“The Kia Telluride makes owning an SUV look cool while offering the smooth ride and rich interior of a luxury vehicle without the luxury price,” said Kirk Bell, NACTOY secretary-treasurer.

The Telluride continues to be one of Kia Motors America’s best-selling vehicles. Since going on sale, nearly 60,000 Tellurides have been sold and demand continues to outpace supply. Conceived, designed, developed, and assembled in the U.S. specifically for the U.S. market in West Point, Georgia, Telluride is the first Kia vehicle to be exported from the United States.
