The above 0 to 60 Mph and quarter mile times have been sourced from a combination of public publications, private testimonials and individual testing. Please keep in mind that there are a multitude of real world factors that can skew these results, including but not limited to: driver ability, pavement quality, tire quality, elevation, temperature, humidity at the testing site, and the quality of the recording device. Based on this, owners should expect their own vehicles to perform within a general acceptable range of these values.

 

Kia History:

While sometimes confused with its South Korean partner, Hyundai, Kia is very much its own company and the second largest car manufacturer to emanate from the country. From humble beginnings in the early 1950’s producing bicycles, the company quickly grew by selling rebadged version of other manufacturer’s cars. Due to a mandated military shutdown in 1981, the brand was unable to produce any vehicles. By 1986 though, the political environment had cleared and Kia began to sell vehicles in partnership with Ford. 1994 saw the brand’s first plunge into the North American market. With steady growth in the 20-years since, the only intervention was a brief 1997 bankruptcy, which saw Hyundai take a majority interest in the company. This stake has subsequently been reduced to a minority interest. While Kia’s are known as affordable cars with excellent warranties their performance has traditionally never been a strong point. That being said, that too is changing. Numerous new models, such as the Sportage Turbo and the Optima Turbo, provide spirited driving experiences.
