    Spy Shots: Kia Sorento spotted high-altitude testing after 'Ring run
    1404757740

    Some models stick around the market longer than others. The Kia Sorento, for example, lasted for a good eight years in its first iteration, and the second-generation model has been around for five years now. Sure, it had a facelift a couple of years ago, but if it's going to make it in the highly competitive midsize crossover market, Kia is going to have ...

    Spy Shots: Next-generation Kia Sorento snapped undergoing testing [UPDATE]
    1378315860

    Kia has been busy – a refreshed Sorento just arrived in showrooms for the 2014 model year and the Korean manufacturer is already out undergoing advanced testing in the next-generation model. How, pray tell, do we know how far along testing is? Notice any cladding, or coverings, aside from the regular vinyl camo? Right. Our predictive talents aside, ...

    Spy Shots: Next-gen Kia Sedona drops more camo, shows KV7 cues
    1376573400

    It was just two weeks ago that we saw our first glimpse of the 2015 Kia Sedona testing in full camouflage, but now Kia has stripped away some of the heavy cladding to give us an even better idea what its new minivan will look like. As we pointed out before, the next Sedona doesn't use as many design cues from the 2012 Kia KV7 as we initially hoped, but it ...

    Spy Shots: Next Kia Sedona minivan spied
    1375293600

    After skipping the 2013 model year and returning for 2014, the Kia Sedona is getting a full redesign for 2015, which we see for the first time in these new spy shots. The new Sedona isn't going to look as much like the 2011 KV7 Concept as we had hoped, but we definitely see some key styling cues from the Kia concept minivan. Even though it's covered in ...

    Spy Shots: Rumored Kia Soul EV spied for the first time
    1373304660

    Up until now, we've only heard rumors about an all-electric version of the second-generation Kia Soul, but these spy shots seem to confirm that the Korean automaker is developing a zero-emission version of its quirky little box-back. Our most recent report has the Kia EV showing up in the first half of next year (likely for MY 2015) with a starting price ...

    Spy Shots: Kia readying GT and convertible Soul models?
    1345745760

    Be it the upright seating arrangement, the utility in a compact package, or just buyers captivated by dancing hamsters, the Kia Soul has proven to be one of the Korean automaker's best-selling models. Its popularity has driven Kia to renew the funky hatch for the 2014 model year, perhaps with some unexpected variants. The sleuths at CarPix have nabbed ...

    Spy Shots: 2014 Kia Soul prototype snapped testing
    1344958080

    The redesigned 2014 Kia Soul has been snapped testing in the desert and its apparent that there will be plenty of changes both outside and inside. As you can see, the high-riding, abruptly angled profile will remain intact, as the redesign will be more of an evolution of the current hamster-hauler. Through the heavy cladding, there is evidence of major ...

    Spy Shots: Kia engineers lock themselves out of Quoris prototype... in the desert
    1343425560

    Locking your keys in your car is never a fun experience. You have to call the auto club or tow service, wait for them to either bring you a new key or break into your car for you. It's something that happens to everyone at least once, and then you (try to) remember never to do it again. A team of Kia engineers putting a Quoris luxury sedan prototype ...

    Spy Shots: Facelifted Kia Sorento even getting in on the 'Ring thing
    1339702260

    It looks as if Kia is hard at work sorting out some of the suspension woes in the company's Sorento. Photographers spotted this camouflaged version thrashing around the Nürburgring recently. More often than not, manufacturers use the track for suspension development, and while the Sorento debuted to generally strong reviews, its stiff-legged ride ...

    Spy Shots: Facelifted Kia Sorento caught completely undisguised
    1339272180

    We've seen a couple sets of spy shots starring the next-generation Kia Sorento crossover, but thanks to the folks at Kia-World.net, we now have our first clear glimpse of the CUV's new fascia sans camouflage. It's certainly not a radical departure from the Sorento that was once touted as Kia's best-selling vehicle in the United States, but we must say, it's ...

    Spy Shots: Next Kia Sorento caught on the 'Ring
    1337707800

    Last year, the Kia Sorento took the honor of being the best-selling vehicle in the Korean automaker's stable. That pace has slowed somewhat in 2012, as both the Soul and the Optima push past the CUV for sales dominance, but the company's engineers are already hard at work on the next Sorento facelift. Our spy photographers spotted the heavily camouflaged ...

    Spy Shots: Kia Rondo replacement spotted... will we get it?

    Beneath the camo and snow probably lies the Kia Rondo variant of the Hyundai ix30. Both will be based on the Kia Cee'd, but expect the Rondo's personality to be less Flash Gordon and more fresh groceries than the Hyundai HED-5 concept upon which the ix30 is based. It looks like the next iteration might have similar interior packaging as the original ...

    Spy Shots: Kia Sorento's refreshed face caught testing in the cold
    1329944280

    Behold: the first glimpse of the upcoming Kia Sorento facelift. From what we've heard, the crossover is expected to wear styling that steps in line with the rest of the Kia line. That means a new front fascia with a revised grille and bumper design. LED headlights are expected to be part of the package as well. Plus, given that the vehicle wears ...

    Spy Shots: Kia's RWD K9 flagship caught testing in the snow

    Kia has taken the company's K9 to Northern Sweden for a little winter testing, and our spy photographers were on hand to catch a glimpse of the vehicle as it went dashing through the snow. The vehicle will borrow from the rear-wheel drive architecture pioneered on the Hyundai Genesis, though will likely boast design cues inspired by the Kia GT Concept. ...

    Kia K9 sedan spied, upscale cues include Maserati-style side vents

    Remember the proposed Kia K9 luxury sedan? Apparently, it's a reality, as spy shots of the Kia flagship have hit a web forum in Korea. As you can see, the K9's camouflage (which sneakily includes Hyundai Genesis wheels) doesn't obscure a set of Maserati Quattroporte-style fender ports. Just how upmarket is Kia shooting with this? Well, according to the ...

    Every once in a while, a set of spy photos comes through that makes us stare at our computer screens like we're looking for the secret image inside of a Magic Eye stereogram picture. This is one of those cases, as we simply aren't sure what to make of this diminutive Kia prototype. Our best guess is that this is a new kei car for the Japanese market, as ...

    Kia is hard at work crafting an update to its funky little Soul. Our spy photographers in Germany have spotted a camo-clad example hiding an updated look. Kia evidently plans on keeping up with current automotive trends, so the next-generation Soul will wear LED running lights (which are hiding beneath the amber stripes in the above photo) and sport ...

The new season of Top Gear finally airs tomorrow night in the UK (don't even get us started on why BBC America is still running something like season 7 right now), and the boys are unveiling an all-new reasonably-priced car. The old Chevrolet Lacetti has been sent of off to the scrap heap and it looks like Richard Hammond ...

    European Registry pulls wraps off 2011 Kia Sportage?
    1263689700

    The European Registry must be a bigger thorn in the side of automakers than the likes of Brenda Priddy and her minions. After all, the new-vehicle images the Registry keeps in its database are devoid of camouflage, and the latest to show its face (and rear, and roof, and flanks) appears to be the 2011 Kia Sportage. Based on these images, the new ...
