    1393605000

    Kia is moving into unknown territory with its $60,000 K900 luxury sedan in many ways. Not only will it act as the company's flagship model, it will be the Korean brand's first car in the US with rear-wheel drive and a V8 engine. The first batch will hit showrooms in March, but according to ...

    Review: 2014 Kia Sorento
    More Than Meets The Eye 1392224220

    For most new car shoppers, three-row crossovers are little more than a way for the family-minded to avoid succumbing to the minivan stigma. Admit it – the only things that differentiate most larger CUVs from minivans are their lack of sliding side doors and – on most of them – ...

    1391698800

    Think back to the 2013 New York Auto Show, and you'll recall that the already attractive Kia Optima midsize sedan was re-schnozzed for the 2014 model year.

    First Drive: 2015 Kia K900
    Just The Thing For Cruising Easy Street 1391014620

    Let's be honest, Rich America. When you drive your fullsize luxury sedans, you don't clock any laps of the Nürburgring. You don't view your car as an alternative to air travel, ready to wheel between countries at triple-digit Autobahn speeds. Heck, you don't even take the long way home. ...

    Exclusive: K900 probably won't be last time Kia goes alphanumeric
    1390491000

    This is part of an effort to ensure that the vehicle brand itself registers with consumers more than the model name. The new Kia K900 luxury sedan stands as a four-wheeled flag in the ground of the financially fertile turf of the world's premium automakers. It's a bold move for a Korean ...

    Video: A closer look at the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept
    1389902220

    When we named the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept as our top debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, our comments section had, let's call it, a tantrum. People were not pleased.
