  1. Car debuts later in Paris. Korean automaker KIA has updated its mid-size SUV model, the Sorento. The nameplate is a stalwat among leasing customers because of versatile seatings and a high-riding stance. Engines lined up for the new car are expected to include two gasoline lumps, a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and a 3.3 V6.
  2. No, it's not clickbait! The Cerato drove right into the motorist and sends him sprawling from shock and the impact. This happened on 20th January, on the west coast highway, The Cerato driver obviously had his eyes on the wheel, apparently, given how he drove right into the motorist. Who would've thought that this day would come? That we'd actually see an idi*t blatantly driving into someone else. I braced myself watching this and felt my heart wrench into anxious anticipation of what could happen LOL. My guess is that the driver was either irresponsibly texting, using his mobile phone or making TikTok videos. Or, he could have dozed off for a bit after a late night's up – but this doesn't absolve him of any responsibility for being such a road hazard. This looks like a scene in a drama where xxx tries hurt zzz out of jealousy and tries to make it look like an accident. Like in Stairway To Heaven. *dramatic heart-wrenching angry music plays* 🥺 Here's what the others on SG Road Vigilante's YT channel had to say: Attempted murder is a tad dramatic but the hit was so blatant and head-on!!! Ugh, some people really don't deserve to drive. 🥵🥵🥵 Imagine your body sprawled on the highway with cars furiously zooming by, still unaware of whatever happened... yikes. My heart goes out to the poor unsuspecting motorist who did not see it coming, literally. I hope he's alright – mentally and physically. No sympathy for the Cerato, unless he had a pretty damn good reason for this. This Cerato driver is the epitome of "your eyes grow on your buttock" ok. 😤

    KIA Stinger GT

    KIA launches their Stinger GT at Detroit Auto Show. From concept (http://www.kia.com/eu/future/gt4_stinger/) to reality... 3.3L V6, 365 bhp, Century Sprint in 5.1 seconds. More photos in the link. http://jalopnik.com/the-kia-stinger-gt-is-kias-fantastic-365-hp-rear-wheel-1790949403

  6. Kia has only begun putting its next-generation Sorento SUV on the road last month, when a heavily camouflaged prototype was spotted testing alongside a BMW X5 – not a bad benchmark vehicle at all. Today, we can show you a considerably less shy prototype, roaming the Nurburgring Nordschleife wearing Recaro racing seats and tighter-fitting foil, allowing us to better gauge its design language and overall dimensions. Less fussy design The 2019 Sorento isn’t exactly the cleanest-looking SUV in its segment. It has a lot of curvy design elements that seem to be squeezed together tightly in order to create a somewhat modern aesthetic. So what does Kia have planned for an encore? Apparently something with a sharper yet simpler design, featuring a more boxy front end plus a very ProCeed-like window line that curves upwards toward the tailgate. As for the rear end, the cutout on this prototype only tells half the story, as the taillights don’t appear to be horizontal anymore. Instead, it almost looks like they feature a boomerang design that extends onto the fenders. Of course, whether or not that’s the case, we still can’t say for certain. Also read: 2020 Kia Seltos Unveiled As The Company’s New Small SUV For Global Markets Meanwhile, we’re still not ready to give up on this render from last month, especially since there are a lot of common front fascia (thin headlights, grille design) and shoulder line features to speak of. As for what the new Sorento will be like to drive, we expect more efficient powertrains and better dynamics, while improved driver assistance and convenience technologies remain a given. Kia will probably launch its next-generation Sorento sometime next year as a 2021 model.

    Kia Stonic

    Following sister car Hyundai Kona's launch, Kia pulled the wraps off the Stonic, their version of the compact crossover. Personally, I prefer the look of this over the Kona although it's clear that the Stonic looks just like a raised up Rio hatchback with an identical interior as the Rio too.

    Kia Xceed

    To my eyes, this is so damn chio! Better looking than any other small SUV around. I particularly like the latest interpretation of the "tiger nose". Probably won't make its way here cos its a Euro-centric product. Pity.

    New Kia Niro Hybrid

    Wonder what the possible pricing will be... Launching during next month's car show... http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/article.php?AID=14442 If it is about Vezel or Qashqai pricing... Maybe can sell like hot cakes...?
  13. Kia Forte owner brought his ride for Triple Carbon Clean today. What are the improvements? You will notice the difference especially if your car is more than 3 years old or has a mileage of more than 30000km. You will almost certainly notice that the throttle response of the car is noticeably better without hesitation, and the idle will be as smooth as it was when the car was brand new.

    Kia 7 Speed DCT

    Kia has announced their 7 Speed DCT will be launched in 2015. It will be interesting to see how it will perform on the Koup with 1.6 Turbo. http://www.caradvice.com.au/273297/kia-to-launch-new-seven-speed-dual-clutch-automatic-in-2015/ Kia will introduce a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to its passenger vehicle range from 2015. The new transmission will replace the six-speed auto that is currently available across most models in the car maker’s line-up. The new seven-speed DCT is understood to have been designed primarily for higher-power engines and larger vehicles, though is believed to be versatile enough to fit a broad range vehicle sizes, potentially from the Kia Rio city car (pictured below) to the Grand Carnival people-mover. Kia says its engineers have targeted a seven per cent improvement in fuel efficiency and a five per cent improvement in 0-100km/h acceleration ability from the seven-speed dual-clutch compared with the brand’s existing six-speed dual-clutch unit. Using two dry clutches equipped with an electric motor-driven clutch actuator and a pair of gear input shafts, Kia promises faster shift times than those achieved by conventional manual and automatic gearboxes, and the ability to shift sequentially or jump instantaneously to any forward gear based on the driver’s requirements. Kia says the near-continuous power delivery offered by the seven-speed unit minimises the loss of torque during gearshifts, promising a smoother drive across all conditions. An external damper has also been integrated in the pursuit of enhanced NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) refinement. The car maker claims the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will deliver greater fuel efficiency and a sportier driving experience than any gearbox ever fitted to a Kia. It’s not yet clear which model will be the first to offer the seven-speed unit. Kia Australia public relations general manager Kevin Hepworth says the transmission is definitely headed our way and is a chance to reach local showrooms next year, though admitted the timing of its introduction will be dictated by the arrival of new and updated models.

    Hyundai Elantra or Kia Cerato

    My current ride will be scrapping in December, am considering between the Elantra S and Cerato EX not ruling out other options looks the Jazz 1.5 The Hyundai is at the tail end of its current facelift with 2019 model already announced. Whereas the Cerato is a brand new facelift. Was actually quite biased against against Kia before yesterday as I totally hated the old Cerato, forte, and k3. So my test drive for the Cerato was pretty biased also. Until yesterday after I paid a second visit to Hyundai, then decided to pop by C&C just to look at the c4 cactus, the Cerato was parked outside. The more I look at it, the more the looks grow on me. So went inside the showroom again, have a sit inside the Cerato’s cabin......is like totally win the Elantra many times over. I don’t reallly mind the exterior of the Elantra S but I find the interior very dated. The Cerato EX cost more, but the equipment level is close to the Elantra elite. Weight wise, the Elantra is 100kg heavier Engine wise, the Cerato is using an older generation engine. (This is my main concern) I test drive both cars, but am unable to get any head on conclusion as I went to test drive the Elantra at leng kee and the Cerato at ubi. I don’t know is it psychological, but the Hyundai felt smoother and picks up abit easier. The additional 50l boot space of the Cerato doesn’t concern me much.

    Haiz...another suicide?

    JOHOR BARU: A 42-year-old Singaporean is in critical condition with serious burns to his body after he set himself on fire near a petrol station in Century Gardens here yesterday. The victim, whose name was withheld pending investigations, suffered 100 per cent burns to his body and is being warded at Sultanah Aminah Hospital. Investigations revealed that the victim had used a four-litre petrol container to buy fuel from the station on the pretext that his car had broken down at about 9.20am. Following that, he walked away from the petrol station while dousing himself with the petrol. Johor Baru Selatan police chief Assistant Commissioner Sulaiman Salleh said the victim then set himself on fire with a cigarette lighter. "Then the victim, who was in flames, started running to a nearby hotel before he fell into a drain, which was about 50m from the petrol station." Sulaiman said members of the public had immediately called for an ambulance to take him to hospital. He confirmed the victim was in critical condition following the burns he suffered. Sulaiman said police were investigating the cause of the incident as well as identifying the victim's family, with assistance from the Singapore consulate's office here.

    2020 Kia Sonet

    Honestly, I have lost count of the number of SUV / crossover available in the Kia stable. A quick check on Kia (Korea) website, revealed the following: Telluride Mohave (Borrego) Sorento Sportage Seltos Niro Stonic Soul That seems to be a lot of SUV / crossover for company with a total of 19 distinctive models in it lineup (some are not available here through). Now, Kia has just announced another new sub-compact SUV in India, and they plan to introduce it to other market at a later stage. That's too much of SUV / crossover if you ask me, but it seems that NO auto manufacturers are immune to the "crossover virus", which started spreading since 5 - 10 years ago. Kia Sonet Kia Sonet is an all-new subcompact SUV to be produced at Kia's Anantpur facility for sale in India and also exported to international markets. Rivalling the likes of Hyundai Venue and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet shares its engine and platform with the sister company Venue subcompact SUV and will be the second car in the country to feature clutchless transmission. Upfront, the Kia Sonet gets the company’s signature ‘Tiger Nose’ with all-LED headlamps. The side profile looks quite impressive too and the car has a decent amount of lines and creases running across the body length, further escalating its sporty appeal. Now, coming to the interiors of the Kia Sonet, the SUV gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with as many as 55 UVO connected features as well. Moreover, you also get a digital instrument cluster and the same will come as standard on higher-spec variants. Apart from these, Kia Sonet comes with a three-spoke steering wheel with integrated buttons and scroll wheels. Prime features on the Kia Sonet include an auto climate control system, Bose sound system, electric sunroof, front ventilated seats, ambient lighting and six airbags – front, side and curtain. The Sonet also gets the world’s first virus protection tech for better safety in times like the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Kia will also be offering a smartwatch with the Sonet for remote functions. The list doesn’t end here as the Kia Sonet will also come with a wireless charger with a cooling function. The Sonet will be offered in a dual trim concept including the GT-Line trim that gets sporty-looking highlights on the outside as well as inside. The Kia Sonet will be launched with three engine options – two petrol and a diesel. These include a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol motor, a more powerful 1.0 T-GDi petrol mill and a 1.5-litre CRDi diesel unit. Transmission options on the Kia Sonet include five and six-speed manuals along with a seven-speed DCT, six-speed automatic, and more importantly, a new six-speed Smartstream intelligent manual transmission (iMT) that was seen on the Hyundai Venue iMT very recently. The biggest benefit of this transmission is that it offers clutchless shifting with the control of a manual shift lever. That said, the iMT on the Kia Sonet offers operation exactly like a manual gearbox with the need to shift gears but there is no clutch pedal. The Kia Sonet will also be offered with a six-speed automatic gearbox option with the 1.5-litre diesel engine option. You also get multi-drive & traction modes and grip control for the automatic variants of the Sonet.
