November 13, 2020 / 0 Comments / 1426 / ATL News, New Models, Volkswagen

Commercial buyers are captive to a different set of rules when it comes to their vehicle purchase concerns. Emotions are put aside for hard, cold numbers related to costs. Terms like return on investment and words such as downtime, efficiency, productivity are all banded about when it comes to a final decision for the check to be issued. Having won two awards in the inaugural 2021 What Car? Van Awards, including Best Overall Van, the 2020 VW Crafter Van puts forward a great case to be a positive addition to any fleet.

Kia Niro Shines Bright

November 6, 2020 / 0 Comments / 1264 / ATL News, Auto Reviews, Kia

The local hybrid market has been left largely open when it comes to new cars. The 2020 Kia Niro smartly fills that niche, a niche expected to grow as vehicles converge on the concerns of environment, fuel economy and electrification.

The Niro doesn’t scream hybrid. This is your standard small sport utility vehicle (SUV) fitted with an internal combustion engine and an onboard battery-powered electric motor. Rather than go space age, it sticks with standard visual considerations for the class, but is by no means a boring looking SUV. The Niro is a very sporty in external styling, having razor-sharp lines accentuated by muscular curves. It continues Kia’s modern design language capped off by a future-inspired rendition of their signature tiger grille.

October 13, 2020 / 0 Comments / 1724 / ATL News, Kia, New Models

With more performance capabilities, advanced driving assistance systems and a bold new design; nothing looks or feels better than the all-new 2021 Kia Sorento. The spacious seven seater sports a stylish and modern exterior design along with a high-tech interior making it the SUV to drive. This model does not compromise on style, safety or power and you’re bound to notice once you get behind the wheel.

The redesigned exterior gives the Sorento a more confident and mature presence on the road, with its sharp, modern lines and accented high-tech details. The evolution of this model’s dynamic aesthetic is exemplified best by Kia’s signature “tiger nose” grille, new details that extend into the headlight and hood structure, a hood edge that wraps around the body and integrates into the rear shoulder line therefore enhancing length and width, giving it even more authentic SUV vibes. It also comes standard with LED headlamps and gives the option of six different alloy wheel designs, from 17-inches to 20-inches, the largest ever for Sorento.

Balance is a significant element that is difficult to get right. That’s what makes the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman S so special. It’s able to dole out the adrenalin fuelled fun of a sports car and provide the practicality needed for everyday usage.

In 2016, the 718 moniker was added to the Cayman as homage to Porsche’s 718 RSK sports car of the 1950s. On the surface, the visual familial lines are there, but those steeped in the brand’s lore can see the deeper connection with its namesake in the front and rear fenders.
