Kia Stinger a Car of the Year Finalist

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018
2018 Kia Stinger named Car of the Year Finalist

When you think of what would make a Car of the Year, do you picture a Kia? Even if you haven’t driven their vehicles, you’ve likely heard a lot about them. If you’ve seen the company’s commercials, you are familiar with the Kia hamsters. These critters are fun, exciting, and stylish; just like Kia’s vehicles. This is the image that Kia has gone with for years. However, their newest addition may change this.

A Sporty New Direction

While definitely still a Kia vehicle, the Kia Stinger looks quite a bit different from its companions in the Kia fleet. This is apparent at a first glance. While the Stinger retains significant Kia design elements, it is first and foremost a sports sedan. This is relatively uncharted territory for Kia. However, the company seems to be navigating the different field quite well, and response to the Stinger’s design has been positive.

Car of the Year?

This divergent vehicle has also gained Kia its first ever finalist position for the North American Car of the Year award. The announcement came at the end of November, when it was revealed that the Kia Stinger has a good chance of winning the 2018 North American Car of the Year award.

This has been a dream for the company for quite some time. In the 23 years that the award has been given, the company has never had a vehicle reach the final three. The Stinger started as a concept vehicle years ago, and now here it is reaching prominent spotlight. It remains to be seen if the vehicle will take home the top award; regardless, this an accomplishment for both Kia and the Stinger. In any case, the Kia Stinger is sure to introduce the brand to an all new audience that will soon see the automaker in a whole new light.

Friday, October 27th, 2017

One of the greatest methods of measuring a vehicle’s worth and popularity is by measuring its resales. For example, a vehicle that is typically kept by the principal owner for an extended period of time without resale is typically very popular. Additionally, a vehicle that is quickly bought after resale also indicates a distinct popularity. The Pre-Owned Kia Sportage certainly reigns as a popular vehicle due to its resale desirability.

For the second time in a row, the Kia Sportage has attained the title of Auto Trader’s fastest selling used car in the UK. The vehicle sells very quickly, not just as a used vehicle, but new off the lot as well. The Kia Sportage comes with a wide variety of options and models. However, the fastest selling used vehicle in September was the 2015 Kia Sportage Petrol in a Manual.
