The used car industry has seen a steady growth for the past several years due to its economic benefits of lower purchasing and depreciation. In particular, for young professionals, buying new models require large investments that would most likely depreciate faster than you can drive it. Some dealers and manufacturers even provide certification programs for used cars.
Used auto dealers like Butler Kia of Fishers have an extensive inventory of pre-owned cars and trucks with established knowledge in the industry of used car dealerships in Indianapolis. The pre-owned vehicles of these auto dealers are guaranteed to pass the 60-point stringent inspection for consumer convenience. With their pre-owned program comes providing certified repair and maintenance of different authorized parts and accessories from their car selection.
In 2002, Kia introduced the Kia Sorento. It had two options for transmissions: a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic. Its motor was a 3.5 double overhead cam V6 from Hyundai and pumped out 192 horsepower. Today, it is in its third generation with the 2016 Kia Sorento. It features a stronger body construction, an overall length that’s three inches longer than the previous generation, and a wheelbase that’s 3.1 inches wider. Avid fans of Kia in Indianapolis would surely love this new version.
The 2016 Kia Sorento is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). The six-speed automatic transmission is standard, but there are three engines that are being offered: a 2.4-liter, direct injection four-cylinder, a 3.3-liter direct injection V6, and a 2.0-liter direct injection turbo four-cylinder new to this model. The strongest is the V6 which boasts 290 horsepower, followed by the 2.0-liter giving 240 horsepower.
When it comes to luxury cars, only a handful of brand names come to mind: BMW, Mercedes Benz, and the like. And truly, no other brands have come close—yet. That’s because Kia is gradually easing itself into the game.
Kia in itself is known as an affordable, stylish upstart, which has worked its way up from selling rather cheap cars to its newer, feature-laden vehicles—all of which have been constant surprises in terms of design. One wouldn’t normally associate Kia’s brand identity with luxury, but since it decided to establish a new brand identity, it has proved successful. To date, Kia’s U.S. sales have more than doubled since 2008, which further verifies its slow but sure ascent to being a sophisticated frontrunner. As part of its effort, Kia has unveiled its all-new full-sized 2015 K900 luxury sedan—a car which seems a far-cry from its manufacturer’s former pedigree, yet still competitive enough to be a genuine looker.
Spring’s coming to the Midwest. Clear skies and sunny days ahead.
Visit Indiana recommends the Hoosier Heritage Road Trip, a literal walk (or drive) down Memory Lane that relives the spirit of important locations in America’s history. Start with the Tippecanoe Battlefield Museum in Lafayette, featuring relics from the Battle of Tippecanoe fought by a union of Native American tribes and the U.S. military. While you’re there, drop by Purdue University.
With all the roadwork going on, however, getting there may require detours left and right. Work has begun on expanding the I-65 as part of the state’s Major Moves 2020 project and will carry on throughout the night. On top of that, Spring Break is commonly associated with long-distance trips, not just within Indiana.
