Kia Soul EV: Europe's first full electric SUV (hands-on)

By 13 November 2014

We've been driving around London in the continent's first electric sports utility vehicle, the Kia Soul EV. Despite having our reservations on initially seeing the unique shape of the car we were soon impressed. Even if this wasn't attractive because... >>

Kia Soul Mixx review

By 12 October 2014

The Kia Soul sits in the increasingly popular crossover segment of the market, taking something that's essentially a hatchback and giving it characteristics closer to that of an SUV. It's the follow-up to the 2008 original, now based on the Kia C'eed... >>

Kia Pro_Cee'd GT review

By 22 January 2014

In the car world 2013 was very much the year of the hot hatch, or GTi if you're of a particularly VW persuasion. Every manufacturer had a go at turning the regular family shopping car into a fire-breathing road eater last year, the latest example being... >>

Kia GT4 Stinger Concept: Korean manufacturer shows off GT muscle

By 18 January 2014

Don’t be confused by the name. The GT4 in the Kia Stinger Concept’s name doesn’t mean the company is two generations out of step with other manufacturers producing cars specifically for a certain PlayStation racing game (non-gamers you'll see what... >>

Kia Sportage 2.0 CRDi KX-4

By 4 January 2013

We’ve been looking at the 4x4 - or SUVs, as they’re now more commonly known - in many recent reviews. Although it’s been knocking about for a couple of years, we didn’t think it was fair to leave Kia’s Sportage out of the round. In many respects,... >>

Kia Cee’d Sportswagon 1.6 CRDi 3

By 13 September 2012

Are you ready to join the “wagon revolution”? Taking its lead from the lofty heights of the likes of Audi’s RS brand, the latest addition to the Kia range - an estate version of the company's Ford Focus-rivaling Cee’d – has been renamed the... >>

Kia Cee'd (2012)

By 31 May 2012

Building on what made the original model a success, the 2012 Kia Cee’d is an all-new motor with enough clout to keep it in check with the other big-boy car markers. The Korean manufacturer might have a reputation for practical, sensible vehicles, but... >>

Kia Rio CRDi 2

By 9 May 2012

In August 2010, we had one of the worst hire car experiences of our life. It came courtesy of a Kia Rio saloon that looked like it had been dropped down a flight of stairs and housed a pack of wild dogs for the previous few months. Above 50 miles an hour,... >>

By 16 September 2011

Still think Kia is a value brand you buy just for its long warranty? Think again, that time has long gone. Kia now has some of the most impressive production car designs on the road (thanks to former Audi design boss, Peter Schreyer for that) and at this... >>

Kia cee'd 1.6CRDi LS

By 12 August 2008

First things first, let’s get rid of the perky, pesky apostrophe from Kia’s latest entry into the hatchback market, the Kia cee’d. The grammatical abuse serves no purpose other than to annoy, so it's coming out. The Kia ceed; there, that’s better.... >>
