Mobile spy reviews kia optima zero to sixty

 

Kia has made its first ever hot hatch. Designed, developed and sold exclusively in Europe, the rakish three-door Pro_cee'd GT is first to arrive, with a more practical five-door model due out by the start of next year.

The styling does an excellent job of setting it apart as the flagship of the range. Bold quad LED lights sit at either corner of the aggressive new front bumper and Golf GTI -inspired details like the honeycomb grille and red pin-stripe along the front splitter all look fantastic.

Side skirts and a set of dual exhausts complete the styling overhaul, while a smart set of two-tone multi-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels neatly fill out the wide arches.

With a number of economical options including the Rio, Soul, and Forte, and a lineup of value-oriented crossovers—currently the hottest market trend— Kia has built a foundation to compete with the industry’s major players.

Least Expensive : Kia’s Rio, Soul, and Forte all start under $18,000. The Rio is the least expensive model in Kia’s lineup, followed by the Soul four-door hatchback, and then the Forte.

Sportiest : Even though the Forte Koup SX isn’t a direct competitor to the Honda Civic Si in terms of performance, the Forte Koup’s 201 hp from a 1.6-liter turbo-four should provide enough pep to satiate some buyers.

The Kia Cadenza got a major overhaul for the 2017 model year starting with a new chassis with 50 percent high-strength steel and a longer wheelbase, lower height, and wider stance. Chassis improvements include retuned steering and suspension systems and larger front brakes. New exterior styling includes a new hexagonal grille, Z-shaped details on the headlights and LED taillights, and a sleeker rear roofline. Inside, Kia offers new tech features and available Nappa leather.

The Cadenza is Kia’s front-drive flagship sedan and sits above the midsize Optima, compact Forte, and subcompact Rio, but below the rear-drive, full-size flagship Kia K900 sedan in size and price. The sedan seats five and offers a number of premium options.

Power for the 2017 Kia Cadenza comes from a revised 3.3-liter DOHC V-6 making 290 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque. A new eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is not available. The drivetrain combo is EPA-rated 20/28 mpg city/highway.
