If you were watching the 2021 Australian Open tennis tournament then you probably couldn't help but note that Kia is the major tournament sponsor. The company's on-screen promos received extensive coverage between the on court action. With travel restrictions, border closures the tournament sponsors possibly received more exposure than usual. With crowd numbers limited and non-existent for several days, spectators had to settle for watching on their screens.
In past years, the brand featured Rafael Nadal as ambassador. But if you were a keen watcher of the AO 2021, you’d have noticed Nick Kyrgios now fronting the brand. The change of face and style of commercials bringing quite a different feel to the brand, from a purely observational point of view. A difference in creative or is there something distinctly new about Kia cars?
With the brand centre stage, or is at centre court, in February, we take a look at the latest Kia models and serve you up details on acing a purchase with a Jade Car Loans finance deal.
Kia Models: Overview
Promoted as the ‘all new Stonic’ the small Kia SUV was promoted with a young vibe but has the features to appeal to a wider buyer market. The major selling points are the agility of a car but with elements and style of the top selling SUV category. Providing ease of handling even in urban environments. No doubt to appeal to the target market, the tech and connectivity and style are pushed heavily. Even to the point of the brand stating the Stonic is insta-worthy.
What is worthy of mention is the 1.4 litre MPI petrol engine which the company claims is frugal and delivers fuel efficiency in concert with the Idle Stop and Go function. The Stonic has a good range of standard safety features included with several others available as options.
The Stonic is available in two models – Sport in choice of manual or auto and the GT-Line which has the dual clutch transmission. Peeked your interest?

The other take-out from the Kia ad campaign was the TVC with Carnival, Sportage and Sorrento that had a real advanced driver training session feel with moves you’d expect the team at a certain well-watched TV car show to undertake.
The Sportage is pitched at young families but has the features that would make it suited to the small business owner. A larger SUV with the essential cargo area that seems to be a must-have for many business operators as well as families. The Sportage is available in a number of model variants all with choice of petrol or diesel.
The Sorento is the largest SUV in the Kia range and the most luxurious. It even includes a 12 speaker BOSE sound system! A 7 seater with 187 litres of cargo space or ditch the third row of seating to use the massive 616 litres of cargo area. Power choices are the 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine or the 2.2 litre diesel.
While not appearing to claim AWD capabilities, the Sorento does have a multi-terrain driving mode. A mode that that the company claims provides better stability and traction when driving on surfaces such as snow, mud and sand. With four model variants, there is plenty of choice for Sorento buyers to select a vehicle which specifically meets their requirements.
