Kia

Kia is no longer the brand people buy on a budget. It still offers plenty of value, but the lineup now stands toe-to-toe with the best in the class in terms of features and design. From the boxy subcompact Soul to the large three-row Telluride, Kia offers a wide range of the sorts of crossovers buyers demand these days. The range also includes the compact Sportage and Seltos, as well as the mid-size Sorento that still can be had with three rows of seats. While on the topic of the three row vehicles, the Carnival MPV is a recent addition to the lineup, replacing the Sedona minivan.

Kia is still committed to making a full lineup of cars, starting with the subcompact Rio sedan and hatchback. The compact Forte has been recently refreshed and includes an optional turbocharged engine. The mid-size K5 replaced the Optima and has available all-wheel drive. The Stinger sport-sedan continues on for another year, offering a lot of performance and luxury at an affordable price.

On the electrified front, an all-new EV6 electric crossover came out year and joins a new generation of the Niro EV. As well, the Niro and Sorento can be had as plug-in hybrids.

Kia’s Telluride in a few short years went from unknown quantity to segment standout. The stylish three-row SUV has been a star in a competitive class and recently received a significant refresh. One of the biggest standouts about the boxy Telluride has been the vehicle’s stylish looks inside and out. With the recent refresh, it’s just as true as ever, even if the cool rectangular amber daytime running lights are now gone.

Comparison Test: 2024 Kia EV9 vs. 2024 Mazda CX-90 PHEV

Before you grab your torches and pitchforks about the mis-matched nature of this comparison test, hear us out. Yes, the Kia EV9 is a fully-electric machine while the CX-90 is a plug-in hybrid. Yes, there’s a twenty-grand gap in price between these two, as-equipped. And yes, they feel very different behind the wheel. But for folks wanting a 3-row crossover that can cover commuting duties with electrons instead of dinosaur juice, these are currently the only two viable mainstream options. So, how do they stack up against one another? Let’s find out.
