Kia Cadenza: More Than Transportation

Cars today need to do more than provide a means to get from point A to point B. That’s where the 2018 Kia Cadenza comes in. It’s a spacious luxury vehicle with Kia’s warranty to match. Take a look at just some of the features that put it head and shoulders above the rest in its class.

Family Friendly

 

There is plenty for families to love about the Cadenza. It has plenty of legroom for all passengers, making long trips with its full complement of five passengers a breeze. It’s a quiet ride as well, with sound dampening features that ensure the sounds of the road stay outside. Kia’s UVO services add that extra layer of security as well, allowing you to locate your car, track its speed, and even set curfew alarms when you’ve handed off the keys.

 

Safe and Sound

 

Safety doesn’t stop with remote tracking. A fully loaded Cadenza has enough features to make sure the only memories you make on the drive are good ones. The surround view camera lets you keep a close eye on your vehicle’s perimeter, while front end collision sensors and emergency braking automation help out in a pinch. Follow that up with cross-traffic alert in the rear and lane change assist and the driver is kept aware of everything around.

 

Tech Talk

 

Everyone relies on technology, and families most of all. That’s why the Kia Cadenza comes with a wireless phone charger, and access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Whether you’re singing along with the kids or to by yourself with your favorite album, you’ll appreciate the 12 speaker integrated soundsystem. Connecting it all is an optional 8 inch touch screen, keeping all of your news and navigation right at your fingertips.

 

With more time spent on the road, you need more than car. Let Peterbrough Kia introduce you to the 2018 Kia Cadenza, the auto that is more than transportation; it’s part of your life.

Performance Meets Luxury With the 2018 Kia Stinger

Kia has long been slept on when it comes to rating midsize sedan luxury, performance, and overall style. Those days have now come to an end with the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger, a sporty, elegant take on a sedan well known for its reliability and easy handling. Peterbrough Kia has been anticipating this highly-acclaimed Kia model for some time, which is why we’re excited to present the characteristics we believe elevate the Kia Stinger into a class of its own.

Trim Options

 

The Stinger is available in five trims: 2.0L, Premium, GT, GT1, and GT2; all of which can be upgraded to all-wheel drive. The 2.0L trim, the most affordable of the lot, doesn’t skimp on luxury or performance with its push-to-start button feature, 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and premium fuel recommendation. The Premium trims features all that the 2.0L trim has, with the addition of a navigation system, a sunroof, and high-performance dampers. The GT trims feature upgrades like electronically controlled suspension and shift-by-wire-capabilities, making the Stinger a competitor worthy of the auto world’s attention.

 

High-Class Interior

 

What sets the 2018 Kia Stinger apart from the rest is that even its lowest level trim boasts a supremely luxurious interior. The 2.0L trim features leather seat trim with heated front seats, a first for Kia lower-end trims. As you get up to the higher-level trims, the Stinger becomes available in Nappa leather seat options, premium sound system upgrades, and advanced driver assistance systems.

 

A New Realm of Power

 

The Kia Stinger’s performance easily rivals that of luxury brands such as BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes. Not only can all Stinger models be upgraded to all-wheel drive, they also come with turbo-powered engines. However, each engine differs with each trim. The 2.0L and Premium trims feature an I-4 Turbo GDI engine with 255 horsepower and 22-city/29-highway/25-combined MPG. All of the Stinger GT trims feature a 3.3L V6 Twin Turbo GDI with 365 horsepower and 19-city/25-highway/21-combined MPG.

There are also many new features to keep in mind, such as heats that are not only heated but also cooled. What’s more, those that like speed and power will probably love the Sportage because of its turbo engine.

 

There are a lot of ways that the 2018 Kia Sportage varies from the 2017 one. For example, there has been an increase in active safety features of this car, and many of the already standard features from last year have been updated. However, even with all of these nice new features, the car is still an affordable price for a lot of people, meaning that you don’t have to worry about high car payments, high interest or just turning this car into one of your dreams. There are, of course, upgrade options, however these will increase the price of the car; however, it includes some extra tech and an upgraded interior, so it may be worth the price to some people.

Changes On the Horizon for Kia

As with nearly any type of technology, automobiles have gone through a significant number of changes over the years. However, that change is not likely to stop anytime soon, and we are already seeing some potential changes to cars such as the 2018 Kia Sportage and more. From new luxury-based technology such as wifi and Bluetooth, to other sorts of more practical technology, here are some of the things you may see coming to cars in your local Peterborough Kia in the not-too-distant future.  

 

Electric cars aren’t necessarily considered new, however they are continuing to find their way into the spotlight with more changes. The idea behind the electric car is to reduce the need for fossil fuels, and although some of them still have a way to go before they completely replace conventional cars, they seem to be taking a step in the right direction. 

 

Another new change coming to the auto world is the autonomous, or self-driving, car. Like the electric car, these vehicles still have some kinks to work out before they are ready to hit the road in full force. However, with the ability to drive themselves and sometimes even make decisions in spite of the input of the driver, they may be a key to making the road safer for everyone in the future.  

 

Fingerprint unlock and entry is another new technology that is being talked about, although they haven’t quite made a breakthrough yet. This piece of technology could have the potential to decrease the likelihood of car theft, since the owner’s fingerprint would be necessary to unlock the car. However, it may be some time before we see this technology in cars on the market.  

 

With all of the new tech coming out, it should come as little to no surprise that people are starting to get excited about what the future holds for the auto industry. You may even find yourself browsing for a new car at your Peterborough Kia dealer.  

4 Reasons You Should Buy an MPV

The automotive term SUV is common to most people. But not as many people have heard of an MPV. MPV stands for multi-purpose vehicle, which includes models like the 2018 Kia Soul, available at Peterbrough Kia. 

 

Do not confuse MPVs with crossovers, either. While the two car models might seem similar in description (drivers sometimes call crossovers compact SUVs), they are different in form and function. Here are four reasons someone might choose an MPV as their next new car. 

 

  1. Plenty of Practicality

 

MPVs trade style for function. Rather than worry about smooth lines and aerodynamic curves, many MPV manufacturers build cars with large, flexible cabins. These cabins are often seen as big boxes with sharp angles. For MPVs owners, many of them outdoor enthusiasts, this is exactly what they are looking for. The stripped down cabin is impervious to muddy camping gear. 

 

  1. Flexible Seating Options

 

Those boxy cabins allow seating that is more functional and greater flexibility. Most MPVs can easily seat five or more passengers. Where and how those passengers sit in the vehicle can change, as well. In many models, drivers can removes seats to accommodate more baggage space or slide from one side of the car to the other and much more. 

 

  1. SturdybutComfortable 

 

It may seem as though MPV drivers trade performance and comfort for flexibility and function, but there are models, like the Kia Soul, that are enjoyable to drive. Manufacturers base some MPV models on sedan and crossover models and ride similarly. Drive performance and maneuverability are also similar to more stylish vehicle models. 

 

  1. Easy on the Budget

 

Unlike larger SUVs and high performance sports cars, dealers often price MPVs within a range affordable to most car buyers. The lower price point does not indicate a lack of performance, either. Many MPVs feature powerful engines and benefits found in cars that are more expensive. 

3 Reasons to Consider Buying a Kia Forte

If you are looking to buy a new car, you may feel overwhelmed at times by the amount of options available. Cars can be expensive and naturally you’ll want to find the best car for the best price. Fortunately, the 2018 Kia Forte falls in a reasonable price range and is known for being a durable car. Here are just three reasons you may want to consider buying a new Kia Forte.  

 

Compact Size 

 

One reason you should consider buying a Kia Forte is due to the compact size of the car. You may find this beneficial if you drive through heavy traffic in the city to get to work. In addition, the smaller size will allow you to park with ease. You won’t have to worry about not being able to find a parking spot that is big enough for your car.  

 

Affordable Prices 

 

The price for the most basic 2018 Kia Forte model is around $17,663. However, the most expensive package for the Kia Forte is only around $29,000.  

 

Keep in mind that in 2015, the Kia Forte was named the best value in Canada for a compact sedan.  

 

Less Time at the Gas Station 

 

If you’ve been to a gas station lately, you realize how quickly the prices can go up. Luckily, most of the Kia Forte gets 9.4 kilometers per litre in the city. This means you will not have to fill up your car as often at the gas station.  

 

As you can see, there are several good reasons to consider buying a new Kia Forte. The compact size will allow you the ability to drive and park with ease. In addition, the price range for the Forte is affordable. Not to mention the Kia Forte will allow you to drive more kilometers before you have to get more gas.  

 

If you are interested in purchasing a 2018 Kia Forte, be sure to visit the Peterborough Kia in Ontario, Canada.  

We Have the Right Car for You

Most people only buy a car once every five years or so. Therefore, it is important to get it right. You want to have a car that you enjoy driving and that doesn’t put too much strain on the pocketbook. A bad decision on the car you buy can haunt you for years, so it’s best to be careful and make the best selection for your needs. The 2018 Kia Sportage has many things going for it.

The Sportage, a midsize SUV, comes in three trim models: the LX, the EX and the SX Turbo. All trim models are available in 4WD or AWD drivetrains and they all get in the range of the low to mid 20s for fuel economy. Likewise, they all operate with CVVT, have gasoline direct injection and have ABS.

 

On the exterior of the SUV, the trim models have a bit of variability, with the more expensive models having higher quality features. For example, the SX Turbo model has a panoramic sunroof with a shade feature, a power liftgate, 19-inch allow wheels and special features associated with the headlights. All models have rear wipers, auto light control and LED daytime running lights.  The outside dimensions are basically the same for all models, with ample seating capacity and space.

 

All models also have rear camera display and cruise control, but the EX and SX Turbo models have advanced technology for entertainment screens and speakers as well as seat adjustability. An impressive suite of safety features are available in all three models, from ABS to front and side airbags to traction and stability control.

 

At Peterbrough Kia our goal is to find the right car for you. We believe the 2018 Kia Sportage has a solid mixture of quality, convenience and affordability. Our sales team can help you decide on what car works best for your situation.
