New Sporty KIA Sedan Could Be Available by 2017

Rear-wheel drive model would complement K900, give sportier feel to KIA offerings at Jim Butler KIA

KIA has been busy with its concepts and plans. The latest addition to the KIA line-up is the Niro, which will be the brand’s first dedicated hybrid CUV. However, KIA may more than likely put a sporty sedan into the mix as early as mid-2017.

This new vehicle would more than likely be based off previous concepts in years past such as the GT and Novo. KIA has internally dubbed this upcoming vehicle possibility the CK, and a vehicle such as this could compete with European models such as the BMW 4 series without the European price tag.

Sound familiar? This is the same great point that the new K900s in St. Louis at Jim Butler KIA makes on a daily basis. The CK will more than likely be a rear-wheel drive vehicle just like the K900 and fill a segment of the market without emptying wallets. Engine sizes could possibly be 2.0 liters, 2.2 liters and 3.0 liters.

The KIA CK has no official word yet from the company, but May 2017 is an estimated released date by Reueters. A vehicle such as this would make a great compliment to the new 2016 KIA K900s at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley. Those in St. Louis shopping for a sporty, youth-driven vehicle will be thrilled at what KIA will have to offer in the near future.

KIA Optima, Sedona Named to Top Family Vehicle List by KBB

Jim Butler KIA vehicles assert value and family functionality with latest Kelley Blue Book awards

Two KIA models available at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley earned spots on Kelley Blue Book’s (KBB) 16 Best Family Cars for 2016 list. For the family of any size, from newly married couples to ones with newborns to the experienced families, Jim Butler KIA has the 2016 Optima and the 2016 Sedona, both KBB choices.

The Sedona is the KIA brand’s minivan, and the model garners attention wherever it goes. The outgoing model was named the ultimate minivan by MotorWeek and, and the 2016 edition takes these attributes even further. KBB editors placed the Sedona on its list because of the van’s style, function, modern interior and overall value.

“Sedona was designed for today’s active lifestyles and families on the go with more power, a longer wheelbase for improved leg room and unique seating configurations combined with intuitive technology and safety,” Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for KIA Motors America (KMA), said.

Winning design and first-class comfort set the 2016 Sedonas at Jim Butler KIA apart from the rest of the minivans in St. Louis. Active and passive safety features, dual sunroofs, heated/ventilated seats and more technology than you could shake a smartphone at will make your choice of a KIA Sedona a smart one.

Optima a top choice for St. Louis family sedan

While minivans usually scream “family vehicle,” the sedans can still serve a family just as well. KBB was impressed with the Optima’s family-friendly style and bevy of features. Safety, convenience and spaciousness for passengers and child safety seats also weighed heavily in the 2016 Optima’s favor.

“The all-new 2016 Optima has matured in all the right ways, from the European sport-sedan design to the premium interior materials to its vastly improved ride and handling and advanced safety features,” Hedrick said.

Five trim choices and two turbo engines will have the Optima fitting whatever needs your family has. The new 2016 Optima at Jim Butler KIA dares you to break away from the cookie-cutter sedans you see at any other dealer. This award is the second in the past few months for the Optima which was also named to KBB’s Best Buy list last November.

“When looking at the car market through the family friendly lens, KIA vehicles deserve serious consideration,” Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for KBB, said.

Come see for yourself why the Optima and Sedona are on everyone’s lists! To schedule a KIA test drive in St. Louis, contact Jim Butler KIA online today or give us a call at 636-256-9600!
