KIA Reviews

New Cars
Good: Good looking seven-seat people carrier. Comes with seven year warranty. Practical cabin. Easy to drive.
Bad: Not as good to drive as a Ford C-MAX.
Good: Comes with Kia's seven-year warranty as standard. Rides and handles very well on standard Hankook Kinergy Eco tyres.
Bad: Far better on 15-inch wheels than on 17-inch wheels. Diesel is a bit too long geared.
Good: Great looking estate car that's also superb value. Huge boot. Useful economy.
Bad: Lots of road and engine noise. Not as rewarding to drive as some of its rivals. Engines are on the slow side.
Good: Easy to drive. Impressive fuel economy and low running costs. Space for a family.
Bad: Base models don't get Android Auto or a touchscreen. Ride quality is sometimes unsettled over country roads.
Good: Well-equipped as standard. Spacious cabin. Low emissions. Excellent motorway cruiser. PHEV from September 2016.
Bad: Limited engine choice.
Good: Great looking, spacious. High quality. Well-equipped. Good to drive and very reasonably priced. It’s easy to recommend.
Bad: GT versions don’t ride as well. Kia no longer makes ‘cheap’ cars – you’ll pay less for a Vauxhall.
Good: Excellent small car for the money. High quality and neatly designed interior. Great to drive and cheap to run.
Bad: Noisy on the motorway. Three-door 'Halo' automatic is pricey.
Good: All-new, on a longer wheelbase with new suspension and steering that provide an outstanding combination of ride, handling and sheer fun.
Bad: Only the backrests of the back seats fold. No spare wheel: just a tyre repair kit.
Good: Good-looking and well equipped as standard. GT model is sufficiently sporty to feel fun while 1.6-litre diesel engine is swift and frugal.
Bad: Long doors aren't ideal in narrow spaces. The Pro_Cee’d has the looks but is not a sporty drive unless you opt for the GT.
Good: Much more stylish than previous Rio. Upmarket interior. 1.1-litre chain cam diesel emits just 85g/km of CO2. Three-door from £9,995.
Bad: Not as impressively refined as a Volkswagen Polo. No standard DAB radio. Not particularly exciting to drive.
Good: 2017 KIA Rio offers frugality or fun or both, and the most impressive list of tech and safety kit currently available in a car of its size.
Bad: Economical diesel is a bit dull to drive
Good: Easy to drive. All-wheel drive as standard. Well-equipped. Capable tow car. Seven seats. Five star Euro NCAP rating.
Bad: KX-1 models lose some of the best equipment. Automatic has higher emissions than manual.
Good: Practical family car. High quality and attractive cabin. Easy to drive. Practical and reasonably spacious. Steers and handles decently on 17-inch wheels.
Bad: Looks aren't universally popular. Emissions and economy far from best in class. 18-inch wheels wreck the ride.
Good: Excellent new Sportage with better steering and handling than before. Very refined and relaxed at motorway speeds. Five star Euro NCAP rating. Good economy from 1.7 CRDi.
Bad: Top diesel engine with automatic gearbox is expensive new at £30,000.
Good: Most powerful Kia to date. 3.3-litre V6 provides impressive performance.
Bad: Likely to be expensive. No diesel engines from launch.
Good: Spacious back seats and wide-opening doors. Easy to drive and park. Good visibility. Decent boot capacity.
Bad: Poor handling. Old-fashioned petrol engines.
