2019 and 2020 Kia Crossovers
Due to their focus on questioning elements of the status quo that limit drivers’ expectations, Kia has recently garnered a reputation as a “challenger brand.” One of the most apparent ways this reputation manifests is their rejection of the “play it safe” mentality with which other manufacturers and brands have seemingly built and curated their lineups.
Ever expanding, Kia’s lineup has seen its recent model additions as an unexpected luxury sports sedan and a muscular family crossover that simply shakes its head in a “no” gesture at the trends which have been governing the popular class. None of this is to say anything about recent concepts which appear to hit the perfect blend of grounded, but forward-looking that only a brand that marches to its own drum like Kia could achieve.
