A close friend of mine suggested that I title this piece Super-Stonic and in many ways Kia New Zealand’s plucky new compact hatch fits this label, it’s crammed full of modern tech, handles nicely and is easy on the eye so very super.” – Dave McLeod, TarmacLife.co.nz

“Sweet to drive and smartly packaged with a boot cavernous enough to form a gateway to Narnia, it’s hard to argue that the Seltos is anything other than a new segment benchmark, time to see if anyone can keep up…” – Matthew Hansen, NZ Herald Driven

Medium and midsize Kia SUVs

The perfect all-rounder, medium size SUVs are great to drive around town, but excel out on the open road. Just as great loaded up with a full boot and passengers as on your own, these vehicles offer the flexibility of picking up the odd bit of furniture or towing a trailer while also benefiting from state-of-the-art technology.

Kia Sportage Black Sea Blue front quarter

“I was expecting the 2021 Kia Sportage X-Line Diesel to be polished, refined and well equipped, and I wasn’t let down. But I was surprised at just how good it has become. For me, the most surprising thing was just how good that diesel engine and 8-speed automatic went together. Maybe it’s been too long since I’ve been in a diesel, but the pairing made everyday driving an absolute breeze, and very enjoyable.” – Fred Alvrez, DriveLife.co.nz

“The Sorento has graduated from being the cheap large SUV alternative choice, to being a luxurious family SUV, leading the competition in many respects. Every time I found myself making comparisons of the Sorento, I was subconsciously comparing it to more expensive vehicles. The interior quality and finish of the Sorento is guaranteed to impress, as will the performance of the powertrain. The infotainment and driver’s technology are up there with the best in this class, while also scoring solid marks on ride quality.” – Alistair Weekes, DriveLife.co.nz
