Read more

Do you want to know the first thing that we noticed about Kia's K900 flagship saloon, besides the very BMW-esque styling language of the exterior? The very, very BMW-like automatic transmission's handle, and that says a lot about Kia's first effort in the rear-wheel drive (premium) sedan segment. Yes, we've seen it before, but it really never gets old…

Read more

I don’t really know what caused the Kia Soul to be such a big hit in the US. Was it all down to the hamster marketing, or did the car’s qualities also come into play?
