  • TESTED: The Mini SUV – Kia Soul

    Dropping by Kia to pick up the keys to the new Kia Soul was an interesting experience. Having seen one from the outside I expected a rather quirky car, seeing them drive by you had to assume things about the car. It was time to find out what it...
  • TESTED: Kia Optima GT

    Times have certainly changed in Australia. Growing up it was all about the latest Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon. Families had one or the other in their garages and most other brands were seen as inferior or not welcome. Nowadays, the Falcon is ultimately dead, as is the Commodore....
  • Kia Carnival review: The people mover I could see myself owning

    Ok, it’s a van. I’ve tried all week to tell myself it was a cool people mover, but it’s a van.  The sliding doors are a dead giveaway right?  But stick with me here, this thing has a lot to offer families. If your wife is anything like mine...
  • EFTM Best Family Car 2016: Kia Sportage

    What is a family car?  That’s the toughest part of categorising all the vehicles available today and trying to pigeon-hole every one of them.  In our mind, the modern family car is likely an SUV, and is big enough for a family of four and solid boot space....
  • Getting from A to B in the Kia Cerato

    We’ve reviewed supercars from Lamborghini and luxury cars from Rolls Royce. Let’s be honest though, they’re cars the majority of us will never own. Here is a car for the majority, a car for the folk who aren’t millionaires and need a reliable car to get from A to...
  • Kia Picanto 1.25 MPI Petrol Auto – EFTM QUICK FIX

    For many people who get the chance to review different cars week in and week out, the Kia Picanto wouldn’t be on the radar, and would sit idle most of their time with it – but for me, this is an alternative to my daily driver – my 2010 Mazda...
  • Kia Leading the way with Automated Driverless Cars

    Kia is still a relatively small player in the global car market yet the Korean company can seemingly do no wrong. In the last 14 years Kia has gone from last to first in the mainstream category of the important JD Power Consumer Survey. Not ones to rest on...
  • Behind the wheel of the Kia Rio SLS – Impressive from top to bottom

    The small car market is an absolute treasure trove full of value. The choices are wide and varied with even some premium brands creeping into contention for the budget conscious. The Kia Rio SLS sits proudly alongside a bunch of competent foes. EFTM has just spent an enjoyable week...
  • The Kia Rondo Diesel – It’s A Deal

    Back in July we sampled the seven-seater Kia Rondo, a cross between a mini Kia Carnival and slick SUV styling but with hints of a hatchback thrown in. The top-shelf Platinum model mostly impressed me, with the exception of the 2.0-litre petrol engine. Underpowered and a little too heavy...
  • Camping, Shopping and the daily drive in a 2014 Kia Sorento Platinum Diesel

    Family friendly with a substantial on-road presence plus seven seats and a decent dose of go-anywhere credentials make the Kia Sorento an attractive and affordable proposition. EFTM moved from the Kia Rondo to a week with the 2014 Sorento Platinum diesel. We embarked on a camping expedition, used it...
  • Review – Kia Rondo Platinum 2.0 Petrol

    There are numerous seven and even eight seat creations to satisfy even the most crowded family. Covering a range of segments some come equipped with all-wheel-drive others make do with front-wheel-drive. Most are SUV styled or full-blown off-roaders, then there’s the less popular van option. The Kia Rondo is...
