Colourful character in a muted part of the market
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
Not quite a Discovery rival, but offers plenty of space for the cash
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
A well-considered first effort from Kia: a hot hatch nicely suited to the everyday real world.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.

An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
As sensible and tasty as a dry cracker. A decent enough car, perhaps one for the Freedom Pass brigade.
