My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Sportage CUV Surpasses Previous All-Time Annual Sales Total
Year-to-Date Sales Up 3.3%
With 49,220 units sold last month – including best-ever September performances by the Forte family of compact cars and the Sportage CUV.
Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced the highest sales total through the first three quarters in company history.
Year-to-date sales are up 3.3 percent as demand for the Sportage, Kia’s longest-running nameplate in the U.S, has surged to new heights.
“On the strength of double digit gains for the Rio, Forte, Sportage and Sedona nameplates through the first nine months of the year, Kia’s upward trajectory continues despite the industry showing signs of little growth,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA.
