By blogsadmin | Posted in Kia Rio on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 at 9:44 PM

We’ve talked a little bit about the changes that were coming on the 2018 Kia Rio, but there is one thing that we know shouldn’t change: the Rio’s dependability! This year’s J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) was just announced, which evaluates three-year-old cars for how many issues they give their owners. The 2015 Kia Rio not only earned a top stop, but the Kia brand as a whole did very well.

This year’s Kia Super Bowl ad featured rock icon Steven Tyler, who was lead singer for Aerosmith. But what song is playing in the Kia Super Bowl 52 commercial? Appropriately enough, this commercial for the performance-oriented 2018 Kia Stinger featured a remix of the classic Aerosmith song “Dream On.” This song is played backwards at first, as Steven Tyler guns the 2018 Kia Stinger in reverse. At the end of the commercial, Steven Tyler is transported back to the past, and his youth, by the power of the Stinger’s 4.7-second 0-60 time. Check out this 2018 Kia Stinger Super Bowl commercial, the full cut of “Dream On” and a special reversed version below. Read the rest of this entry »

By blogsadmin | Posted in Kia Stinger on Wednesday, December 20th, 2017 at 7:23 PM
