Kia will drop the Optima name for its new mid-size sedan later this year, if a recent EPA fuel mileage listing is any indication. It looks like the Kia Optima will soon be no more, at least in name. For months rumors have swirled that Kia would retire the name and adopt the K5 badge for the car, which it uses in the South Korean market. We now have the firmest evidence yet of this, with the EPA listing the fuel mileage for the 2021 Kia K5 on its website. The listing also confirms another feature, however: all-wheel drive. According to the EPA, the 2021 Kia K5 will send power from its 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four to all four wheels. If that’s the same engine found in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata—which we recently reviewed—then that means roughly 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Sonata’s eight-speed auto is also present. SEE ALSO: 2020 Hyundai Sonata Review Compared to its Hyundai sibling, the K5 posts slightly lower EPA figures: it sits at 29 mpg combined, with 26 city and 34 highway. That’s down 2 mpg combined and on the highway, and a single-digit change for city driving. It’s pretty on par for the class in terms of all-wheel drive models however. The 2020 Toyota Camry AWD matches the Kia in combined and highway ratings with a 25 mpg city number. Meanwhile the Subaru Legacy is 1 mpg better across the board on all three measures. This drivetrain is the only one the EPA has listed so far, but we expect multiple options for the K5. The Sonata’s naturally-aspirated base four-cylinder is a likely candidate, as is the more powerful 2.5-liter turbo motor slotted under the hood of the 2021 Genesis G80. That engine will also find its way into the Sonata N-Line, which will remain front-drive. The available all-wheel drive of the K5 looks to be the big mechanical differentiator between the two cars this generation. SEE ALSO: 2021 Genesis G80 Here To Make Rivals Nervous, Priced From $48,725 It’s currently unclear if the K5 name change signifies a more concerted move to alphanumerics for Kia as a whole. The K900 is known as the K9 in South Korea, while the Forte and Cadenza are K3 and K7, respectively. With the new name and new looks, the Kia K5 will arrive in dealerships later this year.

The Kia HabaNiro is a peppery concept car that was just revealed at the New York International Auto Show. This design study is fully electric, offering an advertised range of 300 miles (483 km). The battery technology delivering this figure is not mentioned, though it is described as being “advanced” and “state of the art.” Additionally, this Kia seats four people, sports all-wheel and even offers cutting-edge level-five autonomous driving capability. SEE ALSO: Kia Stinger Review HabaNiro also rolls on 20-inch wheels and features short overhangs both front and rear. Further dressing things up are satin aluminum skid plates, billet tow hooks and bright-red-anodized accent pieces. Additionally, the daytime-running lights pulse like a heartbeat, suggesting the vehicle is alive. Despite its high-style design, complete with butterfly-wing doors, this vehicle is not meant to be some pie-in-the-sky concept, rather “a prescient look into the future of mobility,” at least according to the press release sent out by the South Korean automaker. SEE ALSO: 2019 New York Auto Show Coverage Inside, there’s just as much cutting-edge technology as on the outside. The cabin is finished in a searing lava red color, while the entire windshield is transformed into a head-up display. This is controlled by a touchpad mounted on the vehicle’s concave instrument panel. The Technical Option Sharing System, TOSS for short, lets users easily rearrange things on that gigantic display. Passenger comfort is handled by the HabaNiro’s Perimeter Ventilation System. It evenly distributes air throughout the cabin. The geometrically patterned floor glows with soft ambient lighting. As for self-driving functionality, this concept’s steering wheel and instrument panel retract when it’s operating autonomously. This provides greater space for passengers and more comfort.

Certainly, some of the technologies this design study features are a bit too out there, but other underlying features, like the electric drivetrain, are more likely than not close to production-ready.

Voor de Kia Rio rijders en eventuele andere ook kan je U carrier naam met een jailbreak iphone met de tweak zeppelin ( Geen beta versie op de iPhone 5s want die werkt niet ) veranderen. Voor de iPhone 5s moet je volgende tweak downloaden via cydia repo apt.modmyi.com en dan zoeken naar Qonqr zeppelin pack. Als Zeppelin op de iPhone staat bij instellingen kan je Qonqr eventueel terug verwijderen. Zeppelin zet je op Enabled en dan zie je rechts bovenaan Carrier text staan en daar kan je dan bijv Kia Rio ingeven. Zo heb ik de mijne naar deze veranderen :
