Electric Vehicle Library

This category includes just about everything you need to know about electric vehicles and hybrids. Whether you're thinking about buying, or need solid advice on best practices for maintaining your new ride in top condition, we've got it covered.


Tech and Specs

Vehicle technology is advancing at such a rapid rate that's it hard to keep up with it all. From programming your on-board computer, to lane depart assist and advanced collision warning, it's a lot to keep up with. Find all your answers here.



It's a showdown for the ages! We're pretty proud of our brand and think it ranks above just about every other brand out there feature for feature. To prove it, we're building a comprehensive model-by-model comparison of all our vehicles. More comparisons added weekly.



Looking for latest Kia Canada Brochures? We have you covered! Full multi-page PDF brochures are available for the full Kia Canadian line-up.


The Newest Kia Models

Kia Sorento

The all-new Kia Sorento changes the game. Again. In a category all its own, the Sorento is a three-row 7-passenger mid-sized crossover. Smaller than 7-seater competitors like the Pathfinder or Pilot, but has more seating and storage than the Sante Fe, CR-V, or RAV4.


Kia Seltos

This much-anticipated 5-seater subcompact SUV crossover with available AWD combines the small sportiness of the Kia Soul with the refinement of the Telluride. It is one of the hottest selling vehicles on the market right now.


Kia K5

The Kia K5 takes over from the KIA Optima, which was retired from the Canadian Kia lineup in 2020. A non-traditional, sport-inspired mid-sized sedan, K5 is characterized by powerful, angular design, power, and boldness.
