Looking At The 2016 Kia Sportage

2016 Kia Sportage Red

The excellent staff of Miami Lakes Kia is excited to talk to drivers about the 2016 Kia Sportage. Not just because Kia is such an excellent brand, or because there is so much to go over in every model, but because drivers are so drawn to the 2016 Kia Sportage. Some of the good people on the show room floor of Miami Lakes Kia have likened it to a kind of moth to a flame dynamic, because that’s how bright the 2016 Kia Sportage shines in the mind of consumers.

Crucible

Unknown to many, KIA extensively tests all of their vehicles, and the 2016 Kia Sportage was no different. What are these tests? Most consumers read about tests incredulously now because so many automotive manufacturers have no problem throwing around verbiage about tests to sell their vehicles. KIA isn’t using a buzzword, though, when it talks about putting the 2016 Kia Sportage to the test.

Where all KIA vehicles first cut their teeth is a place that lives in infamy—Death Valley. That’s right, one of the hottest, driest, most unforgiving places on the planet is where KIA runs all of its vehicles through the paces.

What are the paces? Again, consumers are thinking of all the buzzwords being thrown around, not just in commercials but in their everyday lives as presidential candidates spout nonsense off at will and get away with it as long as they have enough verbal padding, usually buzzwords.

This is different though, and so is the 2016 Kia Sportage. The crucible that the 2016 Kia Sportage had to go through wasn’t something that a car from fifteen years ago would be able to tolerate.

Like being taken apart and having all of the pieces of the 2016 Kia Sportage that come in contact with sunlight set out like raisins for the sun to cook. At first glance this place of solar vetting looks like a solar panel array, but on closer inspection it is revealed that instead of the black honeycomb of solar panels facing the sun it is shallow containers with glass tops that house the2016 Kia Sportage parts.

The parts of the 2016 Kia Sportage were left in the sun for an entire year so the KIA engineers could see the effects. That’s an entire year of some of the most intense heat and light on the planet! Then the KIA team checked out what had happened to the 2016 Kia Sportage pieces and made adjustments from there.

And we’re not just talking about the hood, or the hubcaps, or some other weird cop out that a lesser manufacturer might pull.

The steering wheel, the dash, and other parts of the 2016 Kia Sportage interior were also laid out like Prometheus on the rock, and like Prometheus those pieces perished in order to pass knowledge on to man. Well, maybe they didn’t actually perish, but you understand the analogy.

So what other tests were thrown at the 2016 Kia Sportage? Some very specific tests, like actually, and very exact, copies of the California highway. That’s right, KIA wanted to be so realistic in how it tests cars that it went full blown pseudo government spy agency and created something that is, in essence, a real test.

That’s one place where the 2016 Kia Sportage was driven in a way to test its limits, to see how fast it could be driven before it started to flip.

This was made possible by the creation of what could be though of as training wheels for cars, except there are four of them and at the corners of the car instead of in the middle of a bike, that allow for such experimentation without the outright destruction of the 2016 Kia Sportage.

Not only is there a highway course, but there is an off road course as well that the 2016 Kia Sportage was tested on. And we aren’t talking about just a gravel road that lays like a ribbon pulled taught through fields of corn, we’re talking about swerving, drifting, and spinning tires.

The KIA team really but the 2016 Kia Sportage to the test in order to be sure that it could handle the dirt and gravel roads that consumers drive on every single day. Because Kia understands that in the real world these hazards aren’t just sometimes, or a few weeks, but a moment to moment thing for drivers.

That’s why it’s so important that vehicles be tested and pushed to the maximum of their capabilities. Because in the real world there are no do overs or second chances—you only get one shot, and have to get it right the first time. So Kia pressed the 2016 Kia Sportage to the max on paved roads and it passed with flying colors.

But it wasn’t just on or off road where the 2016 Kia Sportage was tested. The KIA team of brilliant and innovative minds recreated a steep driveway created from schematics of an actual house in San Francisco, California.

The 2016 Kia Sportage pushed it to the limit again, but this time entering and exiting a driveway. Why? Because drivers sometimes hit their drives too fast, or at weird angles, and it’s important to know how the 2016 Kia Sportage will respond to that.

The KIA wants to study the effects on the driving and how the 2016 Kia Sportage acts because that’s real world scenarios that most certainly will happen to the vehicle. It’s only responsible, and the decent thing to do, to make sure that the 2016 Kia Sportage is ready for the public to use and abuse it.

The 2016 Kia Sportage is more than ready for you to head down to Miami Lakes Kia and check it out for yourself. Take it out for a spin, but please, leave the tests to the professionals. Just have fun driving it and seeing how it handles.
