Best Combined Power, Style & Environmental Impact

This Plug-in Hybrid has the power when you need it, the amazing MPG when you are driving normally and a ton of style with an amazing technology package. This is the best car that I have ever driven. sure I have ahd other cars with more power or more style, but when you add the technology package with the ecological impact, this is a no-brainer. I've had the car for almost 4 months, and have only filled the tank 4 times. It's a 16 gal tank. Luckily I can use the electric engine for my commute to/from work (22 miles each way), without any gas, so I am only using gas when I go beyond the 22 mile electric charge. Even then, on the hybrid engine, I am getting 55-60 MPG. Including the electric engine, I'm averaging 150 MPG for the life of the car, thus far.


This is the second Kia I have owned and I love it!

Love everything about Kia! I am not sure I will ever leave the Kia family. Roseville Kia went above and beyond to make it work for me!


Style meets eco conscious

This is beautiful and comfortable ride. I was looking for something stylish, fuel efficient and comfortable without breaking the bank. This car met all of my check lost items.


Most comfortable car that I have owned

The comfort level of the car is excellent. Love the seat and the panoramic roof. The fuel economy is excellent too. Though there are a few things that kept it from a full 5 star: - No 360 camera, no rain sensor, no lane keep assist (only lane departure warning). These features are all present in non-US models. Not sure why US models are not getting them. - The car got a bit body roll in corners. Not a dealbreaker but the handling would have been great if this is improved.
