2023 Kia Seltos LX review – enlivened but has an enforced irk

2023 Kia Seltos review NZ

Kia’’s compact SUV has been given substantial spruce-up for the 24MY, more refined on the outside and extremely spacious on the inside, it also comes with a suite of enhanced safety aids that really satisfy the ANCAP boffins – however, one new feature will undoubtedly annoy. Rant alert. Ok, so let me preface this section […]

Say G’day to the new Kia Niro HEV GT line

2023 Kia Niro HEV GT line review NZ

It has to be said that when it comes to prestigious and desirable fashion houses, Australia ranks a lot lower than its European or Eastern USA counterparts.

It seems like only yesterday that the fourth generation of the ever-popular Cerato was unveiled to the public, however, four years later, time has come for a mid-cycle facelift. Showcasing a sharper design, sportier attitude, added safety and their new corporate logo, it seems like the Kia Cerato GT has a lot to offer, and […]

Sorento Perfecto: Kia Sorento Premium AWD PHEV Review

The current Kia Sorento is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous generation. For the first time, the term ‘Premium’ could be mentioned in the same sentence as Sorento. That’s not saying the previous car wasn’t much chop, it just couldn’t really fly that premium flag despite Kia’s best efforts. Today, things couldn’t be more […]
