A good friend of mine came to me the other day, and asked for my advice on a few cars that he was thinking about looking into as a main stream ride. I was more than willing to oblige, and asked him my number one question, “What’s your budget?” Well he paused for a minute, and then told me about $30,000 dollars. No more than that, and then I asked the next important question. What type of car fits your style? His face grew an expression of perplexed feelings, and then I elaborated. “Are you a 2 door coupe kind of guy, or a sedan driver?” “Or possibly a crossover would be good for you?” I saw that his face wasn’t loosening up any, so then I asked him one more question. “How would feel about driving a KIA?”

My friend soon burst into laughter, and I immediately knew why he was laughing. Apparently all that comes to mind for most people when you mention the name KIA, are the Hamsters who’ve been representing them for the past few years now. After he stopped giggling, I pulled up a KIA website, and showed him what I was talking about. His face dropped when he saw the website, and how good KIA’s cars were looking on the screen. So I began my sales pitch of sorts, with the KIA Optima. Now I don’t sell cars, but I am the kind of guy who likes to know things about cars, that the average person wouldn’t know, or be bothered to find out.
The KIA Optima is a car that not only looks great, but has a starting price of $21,000 dollars. This fact quickly peaked his interest. Being one of KIA’s number on sellers, the Optima has a lot to offer. Great handling, excellent safety features, amazing tech, and the fact that it’s a four door, just means that you can carry more girls around with you after you leave the club at night. Bazinga!!!!
I then pointed him in the direction of the KIA Sorento. Starting at $24,500 bucks, you really can’t go wrong. It’s a crossover that has a very capable AWD system, room for 5, the same great tech & safety features that’s in the Optima, and above all it provides that high level of driver comfort in something that isn’t huge and obnoxious. And again, you can carry all the girls home after the party is over at the club. Bada-Bazinga!!!
The strikingly good looking Kia Sedona minivan has room for eight, storage for necessities for the family and many likeable standard and optional safety features. It is powered by a 276-hp V-6 engine with a six speed transmission. With mileage at 17 mpg in city and 22 mpg on highways, it goes from 0 to 60 in 7.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 122 mph.
Lastly, I scrolled down to the smaller car department, and turned his attention to the KIA Soul. Now this is, “The Hamster” car, and the world knows it. However, the ladies think it’s cute, sometimes sexy, and they love the interior color changing LED lights that react to the music being played through the high output stereo system. After he took a few minutes building up a KIA Soul to his liking, he soon found out that it would be fully equipped for well under the $30K budget he had in mind. So as you can see, looking at KIA’s best sellers and showing them to a friend who has a set budget, and has style all their own, really isn’t a bad thing.
