2021 Kia LineupWith SUVs, crossovers, sedans, hybrids, electrics, hatchbacks, and minivans, Kia has the model for you. The question is, which one should you pick? If you come to Frederico Kia in Wood River, IL, our team stands ready to help you decide by taking you on a test drive in a model from our extensive inventory will. Before you come down, you can narrow down your options by checking out the following information.

Your First Car

Congratulations on buying your first car! You decided to look for a Kia because you’re counting your pennies and you know that the brand offers you excellent value for your money. The least-expensive model in the lineup belongs to the 2021 Kia Rio, which is available as a four-door sedan or hatchback.

Among the amenities you can expect are Remote Keyless Entry and Trunk Opener, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, and a center console armrest with a storage bin. Your purchase is protected by a Limited Powertrain Warranty that lasts for 10 years or 100,000 miles, a Basic Warranty that covers five years or 60,000 miles, and a Roadside Assistance Plan that is good for the same amount of time in miles.

Going Electric

If you’re concerned about the environment or just want a vehicle that travels without noise, you can look for the 2020 Kia Niro EV. This crossover runs for 239 miles on a full charge, which takes approximately nine or 10 hours with a 240 V charger. DC Fast Charger s give you 80 percent power in only one hour.

You’ll revel in the combined system performance of 201 hp and 291 lb.-ft. of torque. Helping to increase mileage is regenerative self-charging, which takes the kinetic energy that you otherwise lose when you apply the brakes and transfers it to the lithium-ion drive battery. To counter our cold Illinois weather, you can add the available Cold Weather Package, which comes with a battery heater and heat pump.

Riding with the Whole Family

It’s always an issue when you go somewhere and the entire family wants to come along. How can everybody ride together when the passenger list consists of your spouse, your two kids, two grandparents, an aunt and uncle, and a neighborhood playmate? The 2021 Kia Sedona comes to the rescue with room for up to eight passengers on three comfortable rows. Loading and unloading become easy with the standard Power Sliding and Anti-Pinch Rear Doors and the Hands-Free Power Tailgate.

Guarding your rides are high-tech driver assists such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which can automatically apply the brakes if a frontal collision is imminent. Blind Spot Collision Warning lets you know if another vehicle has intruded into your blind zone to make lane changes safer.

Going Your Own Way

To you, a car is more than a way to get from point A to point B. It must also express your individuality. The 2021 Kia soul shows off a distinctive look that should appeal to your fun approach to life. It moves ahead with an available 1.6 L turbocharged engine that pushes out 201 hp with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An 8-inch color Head-Up Display keeps your focus on the road in front of you.

The interior gives you seating for five or more cargo room when you fold down the 60/40 split rear seat back. Your driver’s position power-adjusts in up to 10 ways and includes heating for the front seats and the steering wheel. Providing entertainment on each trip are the Harman Kardon® audio system, reactive speaker lights, and interior mood lighting.

Upscale Power

You demand the power and luxury on your daily drive whether you’re transporting important clients to corporate headquarters or taking a family vacation on off-road trails. The 2021 Kia Telluride surrounds seating for up to eight with leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and Automatic Tri-Zone Climate Control. Both front seats power-adjust to make you and your front passenger comfortable.

2021 Telluride

Performance approaches 291 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks to the 3.8 L Lambda Dual-Overhead Cam 24 valves V-6 and the Electronically Controlled Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission with the Sportmatic™ Sports Shifter. Front-Wheel Drive is standard but Active On-Demand All-Wheel Drive is also available to maximize your traction on uncertain surfaces.
