KENOSHA, Wis., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Tradition versus innovation is near the top of the list of struggles that automotive designers face. On one hand, there is tradition. There is a known set of values that is a proven winner. The other side of that coin, however, is that tradition can limit growth. Where would anyone be without taking a leap of faith and just go for it all? Kia Motors, as a relative new comer to the automotive world, has done an excellent job of straddling both without compromising either. And Palmen Kia of Kenosha is ready to provide both to the willing buyer.
The all new 2013 Kia Optima in Kenosha, WI is the very definition of refined tradition. With an available 2.0-liter dual over head cam, 16-valve engine with optional turbocharger, tradition will get a boost to the tune of 274-horsepower. When paired with a six-speed electronically controlled Sportomatic transmission, with overdrive, makes for a four-door sedan that is more fun to drive. Add to that the Kia Technology Package that includes a navigation system with LCD touchscreen interface, a rearview camera and real time traffic an HD Radio. Tradition was just innovated for 2013.
On the cutting edge of innovation sits the 2013 Kia Soul. Unique combination of style and design belies a level of functionality almost unheard of in a compact car. When the rear seats are folded down there is up to 53 cubic feet available. The overall driving experience is one that will surprise even the most seasoned automotive professionals. An available 2.0-liter, in-line four-cylinder engine gives an unexpected boost in down range performance. Conventional wisdom would say that a small car needs to be handled with kid gloves. Not necessarily with the Soul. A steel, unibody design and electrically controlled power steering give the driver plenty of confidence handling winding roads or avoiding road hazards.
Palmen Kia not only balances the tradition and the innovative, but they also provide a full line of automotive maintenance services in Kenosha, WI, from oil changes to tire rotation. Also if someone is looking for more of a dollar-stretching value, Palmen Kia also has a wide selection of quality used cars for sale.
