Tech Behind the Wheel

The engine gets minimal changes as the vehicle continues to come with two engine options. The first option is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. In 2022, Kia drops the six-speed manual transmission for an exclusive continuously variable automatic transmission. The second option is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces an incredible 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. The engine is available in the GT trim, which continues to feature a manual transmission. Still, Kia offers a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic to this engine.

Kia includes a handful of optional and standard driver-assist features like the adaptive cruise control feature. This tech uses navigation to forecast imminent curves on the road and automatically slows the vehicle's speed in preparation for them. The NHTSA gives this car an overall safety rating of four stars. All models have active lane control and automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring with braking assistance is available on most trims.
