Nothing says “Summer is Here” quite like the Kia Soul, with its easygoing style, fun colors, and versatility for any kind of trip, with 61.3 cubic feet for cargo in back and room for five.  But there’s more to look forward to this summer, like there always is with the Kia Soul: The turbo-boosted Exclaim trim features an upgrade in engine power, up to 201 horsepower.  And this power boost is rightfully honored in a new commercial about “The Arrival” titled “The Turbo Hamster Has Arrived.”

The Kia Optima has so many winning aspects to it, we’ll run out of room before this post is over, but here goes.  The Optima is the Official Vehicle of the NBA, so you can see it on display in several national commercials every year.  It also comes with an award-winning sport-infused European design, with an athletic stance and smooth lines that belie the power underneath its hood that tops out at a superb 245 horsepower.

The 2017 Optima also was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for the seventh consecutive year in 2017, which means it has a long history of being one of the most crash-resistant midsize sedans on the market.  But what we’re really here for today is detailing all of the wonderful audio and technology options that come with the 2017 Kia Optima!  Read on and see how the interior of this cool car will come alive with great music and tech!
