2021 Kia K5: Kia’s Newest Midsize Contender is a Certified Stunner

2021 Kia K5 is built on the automaker’s new N3 platform. All-wheel drive and a turbocharged engine are available. Kia says buyers still want sedans despite the popularity of SUVs. The automotive realm is shifting as I speak. Needless to say, we knew Kia was renaming the Optima to the K5, but we weren’t expecting it to be a stunner. Dare I say it looks better and more well-sorted than the new Hyundai Sonata? I’m beginning to notice a pattern here. Parent company Hyundai was first to relea...

2021 Kia K5: Pour One Out for the Optima, Then Forget

The name Americans have come to associate with Kia’s midsize family sedan is dead, but you probably knew that already. Hopefully you’ve recovered. On Tuesday, Kia pulled the wraps off the U.S.-market K5, the automaker’s replacement for the long-running Optima (which carried the Magentis name in Canada until 2010). Riding atop a third-generation N3 platform, […] The post 2021 Kia K5: Pour One Out for the Optima, Then Forget appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Enter Night: Feds Probe Kia Over Sudden Headlight Failure

Having both forward driving lights illuminated after dark is a key element of road safety; one most automakers nailed long ago, at least until their vehicles start really getting on in years. Even then, a new bulb should be all a driver ever needs to keep the path ahead well lit. Not so for some […] The post Enter Night: Feds Probe Kia Over Sudden Headlight Failure appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Kia Carnival/Sedona: Don’t Call It a Minivan

The vehicle you see here may bear the name of a minivan, but Kia Motors affectionately (and perhaps optimistically) refers to it as a “Grand Utility Vehicle.” Appearing in South Korea on Wednesday wearing next-generation duds, the Carnival —aka the North American-market Sedona — apparently wants to be mistaken for an SUV. The brand’s designers […] The post 2021 Kia Carnival/Sedona: Don’t Call It a Minivan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bullish on EVs, Hyundai Issues a Challenge

Hyundai and its sister automaker, Kia Motors, want to hear from you. Well, maybe not you, but someone with electrification expertise and a startup in tow. As the automakers prepare a series of upcoming electric models, the automakers, joined by their battery supplier, have issued a challenge. Called the EV & Battery Challenge, the competition, […] The post Bullish on EVs, Hyundai Issues a Challenge appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Progressive Young Families Beware! Next-generation Kia Sedona Looms

What a year 2020’s turned out to be! Sure, there’s stuff happening in the background, but look at all the minivan news. Chrysler’s coming out with an all-wheel drive Pacifica, Toyota’s turning the Sienna into a dedicated hybrid, and Kia — well, Kia’s not giving up.

2020 Hyundai Palisade SEL AWD Review – Silk Road

The Hyundai Palisade/Kia Telluride pairing share many common components. Where the two large crossovers most obviously diverge is stylistically. The Kia is boxy and bold, looking trail-ready, even though it’s not an off-roader (nor will it ever see much off-roading beyond a grass parking area at the soccer complex). Hyundai’s counterpart, however, softens the edges […] The post 2020 Hyundai Palisade SEL AWD Review – Silk Road appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

You (Don’t) Know My Name: Say Goodbye to Kia Optima, Hello to K5

A rumor that began spreading last year seems to be borne out. Those whispers, which grew in volume after company executives failed to downplay the suggestion, hinted that Kia’s midsize Optima could see a name change for the 2021 model year. Following its Hyundai Sonata sibling by a year, the radically redesigned midsizer could be […] The post You (Don’t) Know My Name: Say Goodbye to Kia Optima, Hello to K5 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Should You Buy a Car Right Now? What to Consider Before Making a Major Purchase During a Pandemic

If you were planning on getting a new car before the COVID-19 outbreak, you probably have several questions regarding whether or not you should go through with the purchase. In the news, you are likely to see or read about two trends right now: a decrease in vehicle price and an increase in flexibility with financing. “Buyers should have lower borrowing costs, and dealers may be more likely to offer better terms for consumers such as lower interest expenses,” said Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com. ...

Kia Says It’s Still Betting On Sedans

While Kia has managed to add a fair number of crossovers to its lineup, successfully catching up to modern consumer tastes, it hasn’t scarified sedans to make that happen. According to the manufacturer, this is because high-riding utility vehicles fail to match the driving experience of a ground-hugging sedan — something Korean automakers have a keen […] The post Kia Says It’s Still Betting On Sedans appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

‘New Normal’ Takes Hold at U.S. Auto Plants

It’s a car-heavy day here at TTAC, and thank God for that.

10 Tips for Tackling Your First Major DIY Automotive Repair

Editor’s Note: This a guest article from Tony Galloway. I started my automotive DIY journey about 12 years ago when I was supporting a family of three on a salary of $28K a year. It was the height of the economic recession, and I had to cut costs somewhere, so I decided to change my own oil. It wasn’t long before financial necessity dictated I graduate to brake pad replacement as well. Each year some new problem would pop up, leading me to question whether I might be better served by a trip to...
