Big and Small Kia Does It All

Whether big or small, there is a Kia to fit your driving needs. Don’t believe us? Visit your local Kia dealer and check out all the automaker has to offer drivers. The upcoming 2024 lineup is impressive and offers a diverse range of sizes. Drivers who want a Kia but don’t want to compromise will find the perfect Kia model that will fit their lifestyle to a T. From small to large to compact and everything midsize, Kia makes it fun and easy for drivers to pick up their next vehicle.

When it comes to hybrids, Kia says no problem! Their lineup of hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) turns some of their best-selling models into clean, green machines. The compact Niro hybrid PHEV is small but can make a big difference in your life. The favorite Sportage can be had as either a traditional hybrid or PHEV. We love the EV6 and its stunning looks that will have you making the switch to full electric in no time. Last but not least, the midsize Sorento can be had as a PHEV or a hybrid.

With Kia, you’ll never be left behind, thanks to its diverse selection of sizes and powertrains. Picking the perfect fit for 2024 won’t be a problem when you shop with Kia.

Compact to Midsize Sedans

The SUV crossover market is booming, but as far as sedans are concerned, Kia is still on board, much to the delight of drivers. At Kia, they understand that it’s tough to replace a good thing like a sedan. The models tend to be lightweight, nimble, and give you great flexibility. If you’re a commuter, solo driver, or just starting your family, it’s tough to beat the value of a sedan.

If a small sedan is on your wishlist, the 2024 Forte is a solid choice. It offers impressive fuel economy for drivers and the potential to reach up to 41 MPG on the highway. Opt for the 201 hp turbo power engine to add an additional thrill to your average commute. It’s clear from the outside that Forte is a bold design, and drivers will be happy to see that the attention to detail carries over to the interior, where a sporty cabin offers premium supportive seating for five in addition to plenty of cargo space for your daily essentials.

For something a little bigger, the K5 is here to offer you its service. The 2024 K5 offers class-leading torque, excellent fuel economy, and the potential to go from 0-60 in as little as 5.7 seconds! This is not your mother’s car; that much is certain. The midsize design of the K5 ensures you have room for passengers, work materials, and anything else you need. The driver-centered cabin features wireless tech, a large touchscreen, and available heated and ventilated seating. The four doors and great head and legroom across both rows give you convenience and comfort at every turn.

Then there is the Stinger, nearly the same size as the K5. In fact, at first glance, you might say these two are the same, but while the sports sedan might not have the same interior volume capacity as the K5, it does offer plenty of headroom plus a roomy backseat for passengers. The Stinger offers increased power, going from 0-60 in as little as 4.7 seconds. The 368hp engine gives you a sporty performance you won’t forget. The high-end feel of the Stinger will be appreciated by drivers looking to upgrade their driving experience without spending a small fortune.

Moving up to Crossovers and SUVs

Kia offers a great range of SUVs that are available with traditional gas engines or as hybrids, PHEVs, and even as fully-electric EVs. Ordering the selection from small to large helps drivers see what they’re getting and how much space each vehicle holds to ensure the right fit for your lifestyle.

The Kia Soul is a classic compact crossover. The vehicle can fit up to five passengers across the front seat and bench back seat. The smart design of the Soul makes it easy to access the back, buckle everyone in, and hit the road. If you need additional cargo space, fold the seat and enjoy every bit of the 62.1 cu.ft. the Soul has to offer. If that sounds impressive, that’s because it is! The 2024 Soul offers more cargo space than the 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport. Get a lot without spending a lot when you discover the 2024 Soul.

The Kia Seltos is another compact SUV with big possibilities. While it looks small on the outside, the inside offers drivers a roomy interior and second-row legroom. This is great for carpooling adults who don’t want to get squished in the backseat. The latest tech makes staying connected effortless, while the available all-wheel drive gives you plenty of control when things get icy.

As far as size is concerned, you won’t have any trouble fitting your life into the upcoming 2024 Niro. This compact crossover is just what you’re looking for if you want the perfect balance of convenience and tech all in one. The five-seater gives you a combined best-in-class efficiency of 49 MPG! The inside keeps things practical with user-friendly tech and cargo space of 22.8 cu.ft. behind the second-row seats. This is more than enough space for luggage, groceries, and more. If you want to go electric, this sporty model is available as an EV. So, no more gas, no more carbon emission, just a clean drive every time. Charging is as easy as plugging in your laptop. The Niro EV makes the switch to electric look better than ever.

One size up, drivers will find the Sportage, which can also be had as a hybrid or a PHEV. This offers a tremendous amount of flexibility, so drivers can pick up exactly what they want without compromise. The Sportage is a crossover that seats up to five passengers comfortably across two rows. The powertrain allows you to stay with a traditional gas engine or see what the latest hybrid tech is like (Hint: it’s easy and fun.) Lots of power and convenience can be found across the Sportage line, so drivers really can’t go wrong. On the inside, the Sportage gives you only the best, with class-leading cargo space and second-row leg room.

Like the Sportage, the midsize Sorento is offered as a traditional gas, hybrid, or PHEV vehicle. The seven-seater Sorento is a family favorite thanks to its generous interior cabin that gives you space for a last-minute passenger or your extra gear. Enjoy three rows of comfort, with the two back rows folding flat to make use of the excellent cargo space. When you go for a hybrid powertrain, you can enjoy the versatility of hybrid technology or get a feel for what it’s like to charge up your car.

If you want to go electric in style this year, the 2024 EV6 offers you affordable green tech that looks beautiful inside and out. The EV6 is a five-seater, but don’t be fooled; the electric crossover offers an airy cabin with 24.4 cu.ft. of cargo space behind the second row of seats. This is an exclusive model—the winner of the 2023 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year in 2023.

One of the largest models Kia offers is the eight-seater Telluride. It sits just below the Carnival MPV when it comes to interior volume. Considered a midsize vehicle, the 2024 Telluride is full of the latest tech and convenience features to help your day go a little easier. The class-leading legroom means no matter where you’re seated, it will be comfortable. Available extras like heated and ventilated seating or a second-row captain’s chair with dual sunroofs are available to extend the luxury of the midsize Telluride.

Looking for something bigger for your growing family? The Carnival MPV should do it. Called an ‘MPV’ (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) rather than an SUV because of the model’s extensive benefits, the Carnival MPV gives you flexible seating for eight passengers plus best-in-class passenger space thanks to its versatile seating arrangements. So, is it a van? An SUV? It’s an MPV, and it’s in a class all its own. Reliable capability and endless comfort make the Carnival MPV the perfect addition to your family.
