2019 Kia Models Features and Delivery

Although not yet a federal holiday, Voting Day is the momentous time in our country where we get to live out the democratic process that countless soldiers have striven, fought and paid the ultimate price for. On Voting Day, we get a chance to make our voice heard in a way that others around the world can’t.

Voting lets us make a choice for how we want our lives, our country, our economy and our place in the world to look. On a local level, it means making choices that affect not just us but our children, friends, neighbors, family members, local businesses and the most vulnerable members of our community.

Anyway, we encourage you to make your voice heard and vote tomorrow!

At Friendly Kia, we’re excited to also support our community, state and country with plenty of incredible Kia vehicles that go the distance to make the lives of drivers everywhere better. We’re talking about vehicles like the Kia Niro – which gets up to 50 miles per gallon on average and does so while looking sophisticated and elegant.

We’re talking about vehicles like the Kia Sorento – which is relied upon by thousands of families every day to get them and the most important things in their lives from point A to point B.

We’re talking about vehicles like the Kia Optima – a sleek and sporty midsize sedan that ups the ante on technology, ride comfort and performance. Anyway, Kia makes a lot of great stuff and today we’re going to look at how they delivered on their campaign promises for the 2019 models.

2019 Kia Soul

Campaign Promise: “If elected, drivers at every budget will not be forced to give up enjoyment for practicality.”

Delivery: True

The 2019 Kia Soul’s unique combination of style and versatility makes it a model that dares to bridge the gap between fun and functionality. Standard technology and over 60 cubic feet of maximum cargo space make the Kia Soul feel like a far more expensive car than its sub-$20,000 starting price tag.

2019 Kia Sportage

Campaign promise: “If elected, I promise to make roads and trails as fun as my gigantic smile would suggest.”

Delivery: True

With its fun and whimsical exterior, the 2019 Kia Sportage lets drivers in on its fun nature. Though uncommon in the compact crossover class, the charge of simply enjoying your drive is easy with the available 240-horsepower engine, all-wheel-drive and host of standard infotainment technology.

2019 Kia Niro

Campaign promise: “As your representative, I’ll work hard to make sure you can drive a hybrid car without looking like a set piece at a Rainforest Café.”

Delivery: True

The Kia Niro gives you a crossover that gets 50 miles per gallon and a hybrid that doesn’t look like a hybrid, in the best way possible. While competitors keep producing vehicles that look like they were left behind Optimus Prime’s dog at the park, Kia offers a stately and composed design that betrays ludicrous fuel efficiency.

2019 Kia Sorento

Campaign promise: “Families have just as many adventures as individuals. Once elected, you’ll be able to boldly go places others can’t…with six passengers along with you.”

Delivery: True

Standard seating for 7 passengers, active safety features and the convenience of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mark the 2019 Kia Sorento as a compelling model in the crowded third-row crossover segment. Beyond that, it can hold its own on the trails, recently scaling Hell’s Gate at Moab in a Kia promotional video.

2019 Kia Rio

Campaign promise: “The value of a car is not determined by its size, but its heart and spirit. Once elected, I will prove that even subcompact cars can accomplish full-size things!”

Delivery: True

Beyond simply being rated as a top pick by J.D. Power in its A.P.E.A.L study or being selected as a top choice for Hispanic families by the Hispanic Motor Press Foundation, the 2018 and 2019 Kia Rio was given a Top Safety Pick + award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. As the only subcompact on the market with this distinction, Kia has gone above and beyond to protect its drivers and their passengers from the smallest car up.

2019 Kia Forte

Campaign promise: “People are tired of feeling sad about driving their inexpensive and efficient compact cars. Once elected, I’ll give them the soul of a sports car in a city-minded and affordable package.”

Delivery: True

The 2019 Kia Forte is the ultimate car for urban drivers who know how to unwind on the weekend. With standard features like an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility and Lane Departure Warning, the 2019 Forte is great on paper. Up to 41 highway MPG and its sporty, Stinger-inspired design makes it stand out in the forgettable compact class.

2019 Kia Optima

Campaign promise: “The people who hold up our economy should drive something stylish and comfortable. If elected, I promise to provide a luxury-car experience to the working masses.”

Delivery: True

While the Kia Optima has been a midsize sedan favorite for a few years now among drivers seeking European-inspired sophistication and a wealthy features list, design upgrades and the addition of standard infotainment and active safety have made it a more compelling model than ever before. The 2019 Kia Optima cuts a timeless silhouette and offers drivers enduring comfort and convenience.

2019 Kia Stinger

Campaign promise: “Why should you vote for me? Are you kidding? Just look at me!”

Delivery: True?

While less than humble and not really a promise, the 2019 Kia Stinger makes a good point. Building on the success of the 2018 Kia Stinger that completely shook the industry and saw the luxury sports sedan win awards for “best engine,” “best interior,” and more, the Stinger makes turbocharged extravagance accessible to everybody with plenty of standard technology and a striking, coupe-like silhouette.
