    Kia may just have outdone themselves on the powertrain front. The six pack refers to six different powertrains on offer, three of which are manual transmissions mated to a 1.5 l naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.5 l turbo diesel & a 1.4 l turbo GDI petrol. All three engines will also get automatic transmission options. However, these will not be the same across any engine. While the 1.5 l petrol engine comes mated to an IVT (Intelligent CVT) automatic transmission, the 1.5 l diesel is being offered with a 6-speed AT and the 1.4 l turbo GDI petrol engine gets the sporty 7-speed DCT transmission.

    Beast or what!

    This is my first car and oh boy this is a beast. The ride and handling is top notch. German build and drive are no match to Korean rivals. Spacing is excellent and boot space is more than enough. Its is a terrific car.
