Kia Soul

Sedan after sedan. SUV after SUV. Truck after truck. The automotive world can be quite blah at times. Enter the 2016 Kia Soul. Sporting funky styling and a fun-to-drive attitude, the 2016 Soul jazzes up the automotive market. For something new and exciting, you’ll find it with the Soul.

The Kia Soul’s 2016 lineup is a five-passenger wagon that shows off three fully-loaded trim levels to choose from. The Soul’s base model starts out the lineup with 16-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, driver-selectable steering settings, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and height-adjustable driver seat. Rear seats are 60/40-split folding. Electronics feature Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, six-speaker sound system with satellite radio, auxiliary audio jack and USB port. Opting for the optional Convenience package adds automotive headlights, rearview camera and 4.3-inch touchscreen.

The mid-range Soul + comes with the choice of many optional packages to up the Souls game. The available features, like automotive climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, simulated leather cabin trim and upgraded interior accents. Electronics come with many upgrades, from an eight-inch touchscreen display to navigation system and HD radio and premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system. Also included is Kia’s Uvo eServices infotainment service. Another optional bundle that’s worthwhile is the Designer Collection package. This newly-added package features unique 18-inch wheels, two-tone exterior paint and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The top-trim Soul ! Is the most luxurious of them all with equipment that boasts power-folding side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, auto-dimming rearview mirror and eight-way power driver seat with two-way power lumbar support. Upholstery is cozy leather, interior accents are chrome and fascia accents and bumpers are body colors.

Four-cylinder Power with Excellent Fuel Economy: The 2016 Soul offers respectable power and enjoyable quality for rides around town or even high-speed travels on the interstate. Steering is well-weighted and precise, especially around turns. So what gives the 2016 Soul its vroom? Depending on the model, you’ll get one of two different engine choices. The base Soul houses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission ; a six-speed automatic is optional. Opt for the Soul + or Soul ! And you’ll get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined to a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy is excellent for each engine.

An Interior that Explodes with Personality: If there’s one thing the 2016 Soul offers is personality - even on the inside. The interior of the Soul offers a nice combo of modern looks and expressive styling details. There’s also a nice balance of form and function. Materials are of high quality, gauges and controls are logically placed and easy to use and space is abundant no matter where you sit. Behind rear seat backs is 19 cubic feet of cargo room; this number grows to 61 cubic feet with rear seat backs folded down. These numbers are greater than most compact hatchbacks and even matches some SUVs.

Kia Sedona

Minivans may not always be the top choice, but as everyone knows, they sure are useful! Luckily, Kia adds the usefulness of a minivan and mixes it with upscale style inside and out with their 2016 Sedona - a minivan that will easily make any shopper’s list. Continue reading for a closer look.

Available in five trim levels, the 2016 Sedona comes with seven- and eight-passenger seating configurations, which makes it an excellent choice for anyone in need of a true eight-passenger vehicle. Starting out the all-new Sedona lineup is the L trim. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and offers basics, like manual front seats and dual manual sliding doors. Upholstery is made of stain-resistance fabric, which is an excellent perk for a kid-friendly family ahuler. Second-row seats are Slide-n-Stow forward-collapsing and the third row is split folding. Electronics include a bit more than just the basics, with Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and four-speaker sound system with CD player, satellite radio, USB port and media player interface.

Stepping up to the LX means a few more features, including LED headlights, power-folding exterior mirrors, roof rails and tinted rear windows. The driver seat also gains power adjustability. Electronics are enhanced with a 4.3-inch touchscreen with voice controls and Kia’s Uvo eServices emergency communications, as well as two additional audio speakers for better listening.

Upscale niceties really spark in the EX trim. It features fogl ights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror and tri-zone automatic climate control. Sliding doors and lift gate are powered for easier opening/closing an added to the electronics list is an eight-speaker Infinity audio system with HD radio and two extra USB ports.

The SX throws more into the Sedona with LED taillights, driver memory settings, upgraded gauge cluster and 115-volt power outlet. Front seats are ventilated while second-row seats gain a heating function. There are also selectable drive modes depending on your personal tastes behind the wheel. The touchscreen gets a prominent jump to eight inches and includes a navigation system, voice controls and blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert.

Standing at the top of the Sedona lineup is the SX-L, which somehow manages to add a few more add-ons, such as dual-power sunroofs and front and front and rear parking sensors. Comfort is also enhanced with upgraded leather upholstery, heated steering wheel and a second-row that features lounge seats with airplane-style winged headrests and extendable leg rests.

If you’re in the market for a minivan that meets all of the must-haves on your checklist, drop by one of our locations in East Syracuse, New York, Syracuse, Fulton and Auburn, New York to check out the 2016 Kia Sedona.

kia_optima_2016

Kia Optima

The Kia Optima first hit the midsize sedan market in 2011. Now, five years later, the 2016 Optima stands as a serious contender in its class. While there aren’t many changes on the 2016 Optima lineup, it does show off lots of nice features to go along with its fashionable style and design qualities.

Slide into the 2016 Optima and you’ll be rewarded with a premium look and feel. Compared to previous models, it wears more soft-touch materials and classier finishes, and also gains metallic accents throughout. Controls have been reorganized, too, offering a cleaner, more modern design. Another pro to the interior of the Optima is comfort. Front seats were given more attention than ever before, now providing more upper back and thigh support, along with better supportive foam.

The 2016 Optima houses one of three engines, depending on the trim level, each offering solid power and get-up-and-go acceleration. The LX and EX models house a 2.4-liter engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. The 2.0-liter turbo offers more oomph with 247 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both engines have been retuned for the 2016 model year for more rewarding drivability. The third engine, the 1.6-liter turbo, is available to the Optima LX. This newly-added engine pairs to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and produces 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission delivers a sporty feel without sacrificing fuel economy.

The 2016 Optima lineup shows off five trim levels, all fully-loaded in equipment and features. The entry-level LX comes with all of the basics, like cruise control, air conditioning and six-way power adjustable driver seat, but it also gets some more upscale content, such as a rearview camera, remote keyless entry and satellite radio. It also gets heated rear seats and ventilated front seats, two features rarely found in an entry-level trim.

If you opt for the EX and SX trims, you get the option of some nice perks, like heated outboard rear seats and ventilated front seats. Also up for grabs are safety packages that up the Optima’s game with autonomous emergency braking, frontal-collision warning system, lane-departure warning system and a surround-view camera.

For more information on the 2016 Kia Optima, visit us in East Syracuse, Syracuse, Fulton and Auburn, New York.

Kia_sorento_2016

Kia Sorento

Step aside five-to-seven-passenger SUVs, Kia has made big improvements to the newest 2016 Sorento. It’s now bigger and better exuding a nice blend of sophistication throughout. Here’s a closer look at the 2016 Sorento inside and out.

With its full redesign, the DNA of the 2016 Sorento makes it one of the most popular contenders of its class. Its overall structure has been strengthened and its suspension and steering have been improved, as well, which gives the Sorento a more comfortable and refined driving experience. Under the hood is a newly added turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers a middle of the road choice for those that want more power than the typical four-cylinder, but not as much as that found in a V6. Based on the engine found under the hood depends on the tow rate available to the Sorento. Luckily, all engines offer solid tow rates for an SUV, ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 pounds.

Step inside the 2016 Sorento and you’ll quickly see how it exudes sophistication with top trims that can be deemed as luxurious. Surfaces are soft touch and richly textured and the two-tone color schemes available nicely accentuate the Sorento’s quality materials. The overall design is genuinely appealing, featuring user-friendly controls and simple electronics interfaces with large buttons and clear graphics.

Space in the 2016 Sorento is worthy of applauds with its increase in second-row legroom and the ability to slide, recline and fold flat. Cargo capacity has also grown with 11 cubic feet behind the third row, 38.8 cubic feet behind the second row, and a better-than-average maximum capacity of 73.5 cubic feet when second-row seats are folded.

The Sorento is available in five and seven-passenger configurations paired to five alluring trim levels that feature everything from basics like air conditioning and cruise control to top perks like leather upholstery and ventilated and heated seats.

Starting out the 2016 lineup is the base L that rides on 17-inch alloy wheels. It includes LED running lights, three-mode drive setting, stain-resistant fabric and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Electronics are made up of Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, CD player, satellite radio, auxiliary audio jack and USB iPod interface.

The LX gains some nice perks, such as automatic headlights, sound-reducing windshield and roof rails. It also gets a rearview camera, Uvo eServices, 4.3-inch touchscreen interface and two rapid-charge USB ports.

Opting for the EX means larger 18-inch wheels, sound-reducing front side glass, dual-zone automatic climate control, and leather upholstery. It also comes with the option of a Premium package and Touring package, which features content like a hands-free power lift gate, keyless ignition and entry, panoramic sunroof, eight-inch touchscreen interface and navigation system, plus 10-speaker sound system.

The SX equips the Sorento with even more, like upgraded steering, 19-inch wheels, LED taillights, driver memory settings, and auto-dimming rearview mirror.

For top quality and features, the SX Limited adds chrome-clad wheels and upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats.
