Kia's midsized sedan packs a lot of substance and value. It drives nicely, with a firm yet absorbent ride and responsive, secure handling. The mainstream 2.4-liter four-cylinder is pleasant and unobtrusive, and returned 28 mpg overall in our tests, and the uplevel 2.0-liter turbo four packs more punch. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is new. The EX trim features comfortable leather seats, automatic climate control, a roomy rear seat, and heating for the seats and steering wheel. The controls are very intuitive to use. Low-positioned dash vents are our only gripe. The latest version of Kia's UVO touch-screen infotainment system works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions are also available. New for 2018, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on all models. However, forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking are optional only on top trims.
