Latest Kia reviews

Kia Sorento test drive

The new Kia Sorento continues the brand's drive upmarket. It’s big and practical, and feels like it’s made of top quality stuff.

Kia XCeed review

The Kia XCeed looks impressive and rides well. But the question is whether it offers enough that is different to a standard Ceed to justify the higher price.

Kia ProCeed review

The new Kia ProCeed adds a worthy extension to the Ceed family car range, boasting a much more stylish exterior look that doesn't compromise practicality.

Kia Stinger GT-Line test drive

The Kia Stinger GT-Line is a compelling package with all the credentials to take the fight to more premium German rivals from Audi and BMW.

Twin test: Volkswagen Up! vs. Kia Picanto

We’re testing out two key city car competitors, the Volkswagen Up! and the Kia Picanto, to see which one is the best urban runabout.

Kia Ceed review

The new Kia Ceed is a mainstream family car and an equal to the biggest-selling cars on the market. And it no longer has a silly name…

Kia Sorento GT-Line review

The Kia Sorento GT-Line is a clear effort to keep the company's flagship SUV competitive against many emerging rivals, and in most areas the upgrades work.

Kia Stinger GT S review

Does the Kia Stinger deserve to stand alongside similar cars from Audi and BMW? Yes, definitely. It’s not perfect, but it's more than a match for the German duo.

Kia Stonic review

The Kia Stonic is a very easy car to live with, and is an effective contender in the very important small crossover / SUV market.

Kia Picanto review

The all-new Kia Picanto is improved in every area, and remains a top contender in the highly-competitive city car market.

Kia Rio review

The new Kia Rio is a significantly updated model that, while it can't match the driving dynamics of some rivals, outdoes most in space and value for money.

Kia Optima Sportswagon review

The freshly-launched Kia Optima Sportswagon makes a lot more sense than its saloon sister in the current UK market.

Kia Niro review

The new Kia Niro is the brand's first mainstream hybrid model to be sold in the UK, but is being marketed first as a family-friendly crossover model.

Kia Sportage review

There’s every reason to believe the fourth-generation Kia Sportage will continue to be the biggest seller in the company's UK operations.

Kia Sorento review

The third-generation Kia Sorento is the company's flagship SUV, and the company is now targeting the top end of the mainstream market
