2019 Chicago Auto Show Kia Roundup

We’ve said it before but auto show season is one of our favorite times of the year. Our excitement about the season is directly tied to Kia’s status as thought-leaders in the industry. Every year, Kia introduces us to something that makes us excited and proud to sell and service such a dynamic and interesting brand. Read the rest of this entry >>

When a Rio Isn’t Just a Rio

Kia Model Names Around the World

Working with a partner like Kia, who has its self firmly established in nearly every market, means spending a lot of time seeing just how unique Kia’s lineup is beyond these purple mountains’ majesty and amber waves of grain. Every day, it seems like we’re learning about a new model that Kia has custom engineered, designed and developed for a market with unique needs and wants. Read the rest of this entry >>

Looking for a Premium Seating Experience? Nappa Leather is Your Ticket

What is the Difference Between Leather and Nappa Leather Seating?

If you’ve ever sat in a luxury car from the 1960s, 1970s or even 1980s, you know that the way we think about luxury has changed since those bygone decades. While modern luxury cars like the 2019 Kia Stinger or 2019 Kia K900 feature incredible performance specs and 22nd-century technology, those old “land yachts” were stretched-out, 6,000-lb. pieces of steel that cared less about performance or style and chose to wholly focus on comfort instead.

With Thanksgiving This Week, Let’s See What Each Kia is Thankful For

2019 Kia Models Give Thanks for the Holidays

Thanksgiving is this week. If those words frightened you to read, believe me, they were just as frightening to write. It’s hard to believe the warm weather and long days of summer are in our rearview mirror now and we’re heading toward a season that’s full of miserable cold, frozen car windshields and perilous journeys over snow.

What Will We Get with the 2019 Kia Cadenza?

2019 Kia Cadenza Specs and Features Speculation

Kia has grown into a brand that mastered the “show and sell” method of producing something amazing, showing it off and then having a very brief period before it is available to purchase. The Kia Stinger, arguably the most hyped and marketed Kia product ever produced, was shown off and within a year in our showroom.  This method has allowed them to “strike the iron when it’s hot” and capitalize on the excitement around a new or redesigned product.

2018 Kia Models with 360-Degree Cameras

Reversing ain’t quite how it used to be. In our days, you had a mirror if you were lucky. In any case, you’d want to firmly grip the back of the passenger seat, crane your neck 180 degrees behind you and try and see through your rear window to make sure you weren’t hitting anything. Was it awful? No. Could it be improved? Yes! Read the rest of this entry >>

What’s New on the 2018 Kia Cadenza?

2018 Kia Cadenza Vs. 2017 Kia Cadenza

You can’t fake elegance. It’s a feeling, a sense of something composed and timeless happening in front of you. Take it from us, the fanciest and friendliest Kia dealership this side of the Atlantic – you know it when you see it.

Sophistication and elegance are tough qualities to nail. Getting it right requires narrowly placing a design on the microscopic border between under-designed and bland, or overdesigned and ostentatious. For years, very few manufacturers had the key to this combination. Luxury cars made by the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Bentley were renowned for their understated and composed designs.

2018 Kia Comfort and Convenience Features

(Editor’s note: Due to multiple instances of copyright infringement, this blog post has been heavily edited to obscure, redact and otherwise remove any mention of the 1993 Harold Ramis film Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray and Andie McDowell.)

The 1993 movie Holiday of the Beefy Underground Squirrel is perhaps the only movie we need for the offbeat February holiday Groundhog Day.  This classic film, starring Bob Murphy, depicts a news weather person covering the Groundhog Day festival while he is helplessly lost in a February 2nd time loop.

Where in the World is the 2018 Kia Cadenza?

2018 Kia Cadenza Specs and Release Date

Is there anything more heartwarming than the story of an underdog coming back and stunning everybody with their transformation? Not according to Hollywood. Movies like the Breakfast Club, Princess Diaries, Dodgeball and even going all the way back to 1954’s Sabrina have captured the magic we feel when we see somebody adopt an unexpected new self-image and composure.

“Battle of the –Zas,” Part III: Kia Cadenza Sees New Challenges from Philosopher, Poetry, TV Show 

Kia Cadenza Sedan vs. The Competition

The Kia Cadenza won the first two annual “Battle of the -Zas” matchups, toppling such giants as Tony Danza and pizza. But as the competition intensifies, we’ve spent the past 12 months wondering if there will be an upset in the third edition of the competition this year, much like when the New York Jets surprised the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. So while the 2017 Kia Cadenza premium sedan enters our third “super bowl” event as the heavy favorite once again, we did hear that George Costanza (the second-place “-Za” finisher in 2016) declared he would be the winner in this year’s battle, much like “Broadway” Joe Namath declared his New York Jets would win Super Bowl III back in 1969 with an “I guarantee it.”

We also have four newcomers in the 2017 edition of “Battle of the –Zas,” with a philosopher and an NFL defensive lineman among the newbies entering the fray. And don’t forget about stanza, the poet’s favorite, and “Bonanza,” the classic TV show, both of which narrowly made the deadline for this year after both botched their entrance applications in 2016 and missed the cut.

That said, read on for the largest gathering of “-Za”-themed humanity and inhumanity ever assembled, and see who – or what – wins in “Battle of the -Zas, Part III”!
