TOPEKA, Kan., Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Over the years, Kia models have becomes synonymous with superior style and performance. The release of the Kia Soul back in 2009, it proved the manufacturer was not only afraid to break the mold, but barriers as well. No vehicle like the Soul had ever been released at the time, but its success paved the way for other manufacturers who eventually attempted to mimic the iconic design. Kia has also shown that it doesn't take out-of-the-box designs to achieve sophisticated style, and two of the manufacturer's most popular models are evidence of that.
With more than 135,000 units sold so far this year, the 2014 Kia Optima continues to be the best-selling Kia vehicle available—and for good reason. Under the hood, the Optima is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine. However, despite its small capacity, the turbocharged engine is capable of producing a class-leading output of 274 horsepower. It also allows the sedan to achieve a highway fuel economy of 34 mpg. Consumers looking to maximize that efficiency and immerse themselves in the driving experience can opt for the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters which allow for quick, safe and efficient shifting.
Another one of the best-selling Kia vehicles currently available is the 2014 Kia Sorento. As the seven-passenger SUV takes a little extra power to move, a V-6 option is made available. Although the engine delivers a commanding 290-horsepower, it's capable of a highway fuel economy up to 25 mpg—just one mile per gallon less than the four-cylinder engine option.
On top of the benefits provided by the powertrain, the Sorento delivers superior storage space and options. Both the second and third row of seats are collapsible which provide the SUV with 72.5 cubic feet of storage. When the seats are upright, the 151.4 cubic feet of passenger volume ensure that consumers have plenty of room for all of their passengers.
