The world of digital devices and the internet is hitting some crazy hiccups lately. If it’s not the global shortage of semiconductor chips, it’s cyber security threats and internet shutdowns. Many companies and organizations have been affected, as well as many industries as a whole – automotive included. Recently, Kia Corp and Kia America launched the new Kia EV6, starting with the EV6 First Edition model. Potential owners have a chance to reserve theirs, but due to technical difficulties, the reservation site was closed on June 3rd, but has reopened as of now. You can hold yours with a $100 fully refundable deposit for the limited run of EV6 First Editions at Kia.com, delivery in early 2022.
“Early demand for the all-new EV6 has been overwhelming and we quickly reset our special Reservation website to handle expanded access and traffic…Fairness is a fundamental component of our corporate culture, and therefore we thought best to suspend the original process, enhance the reservation procedure, and then reopen this exclusive opportunity to the many folks who had been in line and excited to join us on this journey.” – Russell Wager, vice president, marketing, Kia America
What is so special about the EV6 First Edition model? Like any first edition of a new model release, there are bound to be extra features not available for other models or come with all the goodies at a better price before it goes into mass production. With only 1500 units set for production, the EV6 First Edition is bound to come with more than just a nice sound system. Speaking of which, First Edition models of the Kia EV6 come with a premium 14-speaker Meridian audio system with a two-year subscription to SiriusXM. Other features include an Augmented Reality (AR) Head-Up Display, Remote Smart Parking Assist, a wide sunroof, and 20-inch wheels. Built off of the EV6 GT trim, the EV6 First Edition is powered by a 77.4 kWh battery with a 160kW front motor and a 270kW rear motor and comes with dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD).
Fancy, right? That somewhat unknown feature, Remote Smart Parking Assist, is pretty helpful for these ever-crowded parking lots. Some people have no manners and can’t be bothered to be aware of the space around their vehicle before opening the door and possibly dinging the adjacent vehicle. We’ve all been there, on either end of this automotive sin. Luckily, Kia EV6 First Edition models can try to avoid this with Remote Smart Parking Assist, where the key fob can move the vehicle in and out of a parking space by moving forward or backward and comes with a button to turn the vehicle off.
Pushing forward with new and advanced tech, AR Head-Up Displays are becoming ever more popular with Kia Corp and future models. Sweeping displays and dashboards, “Hello Kia” and virtual assistants, and new powertrains, Kia is an automaker that continues to transform and bring new high tech, luxury, and convenience to the automobile. Looking for your own new Kia model? Find yours at Miami Lakes Automall. Remember, only 1500 units of the EV6 First Edition model are available for reservation at Kia.com

Remember back in spring 2017, when the news about Kia Motors getting a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle by 2020 hit? It was sure something, and it sounds like a great idea if made practical. Basically, picture a car engine that runs on water. Add a little electrolysis, and we got hydrogen. Cars powered on natural resources, oh we can imagine the sudden rise in water bottle prices and people opening their own business by selling filtered tap water. Why make a car that puts the oil companies in bankruptcy right? Speaking of industries that make a lot of money off our tax dollars, Kia is also joining the Army.
Like Chevrolet that created a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, a modified Chevrolet Colorado, for the U.S. Army, Kia Motors also wants a bite of the camouflaged pie. It’s hidden, but real, unlike the cake that’s a lie. How does Kia do this? Well, apparently, although a niche market, the demand for military vehicles is increasing every year. With how armored some of those units are, we can only imagine the dent in fuel efficiency when carrying a platoon of soldiers, equipment, and weaponry.
Four years ago, the Kia Sorento went through a bit of a makeover when entering its third and current (2018 model year) generation design. For the 2019 model year, the Kia Sorento SUV is receiving a few more changes, and they definitely make the Sorento look a little sleeker. Not enough changes to warrant a next-generation model, but enough changes to make it more competitive in the SUV market of the auto industry today.
There have been subtle changes to the 2019 Kia Sorento in terms of body and the overall exterior. The front fascia has a bit of a facelift and it has been redesigned with a new grille and some updated lighting. The latter includes full LED headlights on the high-end trims and tweaked designs for the bumper and taillights, as well as a new liftgate and three new wheel designs. The changes are subtle, but notable for the 2019 model.
At the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Kia unveiled its upcoming GT4 Stinger concept and sports cars fans went nuts. Here we are in 2016 however and some people are perplexed as to why this beautiful vehicle isn’t on the roads already. As far as small, affordable, rear-drive sports cars go, the Kia GT4 Stinger was aimed to match those of the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. So where did it go?
After you buy your new vehicle from Miami Lakes Kia, one of the top Kia South Miami dealerships, the first thing you’ll need to do is add insurance coverage. You’ll need to have the minimum insurance coverage already lined up, or you’ll have to add it while you’re at the dealership. You can either add other insurance shortly after your purchase, or you can research what you need and have it ready to add when you purchase.
Here are a few tips for how you can decide on the best insurance coverage for your new vehicle:
