Review of the 2015 Kia Forte Coupe
Kia Motors arrived in the United States more recently (90’s) than other competitors. Hyundai absorbed the company in a high profile merger in 1998. As a sustainable brand, Kia has always placed abject priority on quality and providing highest value for the most affordable prices. More recently, the brand has evolved with high-tech product developments in their car series and yet they continue to provide prices much below the current competitive market.
Kia has been on a consistent upswing since its absorption in to Hyundai Motors. This year, brand Kia is evolving with new models of coupes, sedans, and SUV crossovers launching in the market. The brand image remains consistent with sporty style, well-crafted designs, and high performance as top priority. The models are very affordable especially compared to car models in the same niche segment from other competitors.
The Kia Forte Coupe got a complete design overhaul in 2014 to compete more progressively in the small car niche. The brand has continued the design and quality protocol changes for the coupe well in to 2015. Today, the Kia Forte Coupe is available in three different body styles- the two –door, sedan, and the hatchback (four-door). The Forte Coupe is one of the most competitively priced ranges for their segment. The base trim level, which is the LX, offers Bluetooth connectivity as well as an iPod interface. Furthermore, you get keyless entry, ignition, and better visibility with Xenon headlights. The model comes in three engine types – 2.0-Liter four cylinder turbocharged cylinder in the EX models of the Kia Forte Coupe makes this one of the fastest models available in their niche. The SX versions come with the even more powerful 1.6 liter turbocharged engines. The Forte Coupe LX comes with 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that provides a 145 horsepower worth of power packed performance.
Review of the 2015 Kia Sedona
The Kia Sedona gets a completely revamped design for 2015. While the minivan segment has had some major automobile players, the brand new Kia Sedona 2015 is all set to compete at a distinct level in this niche. The new Sedona completely replaces the second-generation version, which was functional but quite conservative in styling. The redesigned version is crisper and inspired from the crossover design features a muscular outer look with sheet metal and superior grille design. You can find all features that you are looking for when shopping in the minivan niche – spacious interiors, sliding doors for easy functionality, flexibility of seating within the vehicle and upgraded technological and safety equipments. The SX trim level of the Kia Sedona features lounge style interiors with second row seating arrangements. You also get slide- recline adjustment possibilities. However, this compromises the maximum cargo capacity that is the highlight of other minivan ranges from competitor companies. You can purchase the Kia Sedona series in five varieties of trim levels – L, LX, SX, EX and SX-L. Ex is the only version, which provides the eight passengers seating feature as a standard.
Review of Kia Sportage SUV
The Kia Sportage SUV received extensive deign and features overhaul during the later part of 2014 and the series has carried over to 2015 with minor reshuffling after that. However, it remains one of the most progressive models in its segment, which combines a sport –utility style with the high power practicality of modern SUVs. The 2015 version offers high power engine support and agile steering functionalities on top of the regular features unique to the Kia Sportage SUV series. The model however, does fall short in terms of cargo and headspace because of its design parameters. The Kia Sportage SUV is a smaller sized crossover SUV with five passengers seating. It is available in three major trim levels – LX, EX and SX.
