Kia Forte and Kia Stinger are Canada’s Best Small Car and Best Large Car for 2019

Montreal, QC – January 17, 2019 – At a presentation today in Montreal, the Kia Forte has been named Best Small Car in Canada for 2019 and the Kia Stinger has been named Best Large Car in Canada for 2019, winning their respective categories as part of the judging for AJAC’s Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year and qualifying them both for the overall awards to be named in February.

Bringing home both mainstream car awards is a huge accomplishment for the brand and a testament to the award-winning design and quality investments that Kia has, and continues to put into its entire lineup of vehicles.

“It’s a great achievement for a vehicle to win one of AJAC’s coveted Canadian Car of the Year awards, but it’s exceptional for the same automaker to make two award-winning vehicles in the same year,” said Mark Richardson, President, Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. “Congratulations to Kia for the well-deserved success of the Stinger and Forte.”

How to Prepare Your Finances When You Want a Kia Rio

Purchasing a car can be an exciting endeavor. It feels good to get behind the wheel of a reliable vehicle, especially if it’s one you’ve had your eye on and that comes with the features you need. However, it’s no secret that purchasing a car requires a financial commitment. If you don’t want this transaction to be a burden, make sure you take some financial steps in advance.

Bring Some Cash With You


Though you may not like the thought of parting with a few thousand dollars up front, if you can put down a sizable down payment, it will make it much easier to afford your 2018 Kia Rio 5-door. The more you can put down, the less you’ll pay per month. Also, if you’re right on the threshold of affordability, putting some money down can put you over the edge into a comfortable range.


Pay off Your Debt

The dealer will feel much more comfortable approving your loan if you have few other financial obligations. This will also make your monthly payments more manageable.

See Why the 2018 Kia Sorento Is the Best Choice for Families

The days of clunky family cars are gone. First there were station wagons, then minivans, and now the vehicles used to transport families don’t look anything like the typical family car that many people think of. With that in mind, here are some reasons the 2018 Kia Sorento might actually be the perfect choice for your family vehicle.

Multiple Configurations

One of our favorite things about the 2018 Kia Sorento is that it comes in many different configurations. There is a seven-passenger model with a V6 engine. There are also two-row option models that fits five people with a lot of cargo space.

Ride in Comfort

Our customers often say that one thing they love about the Sorento especially is the smoothness of the ride that you get. While other SUVs of all sizes bounce and jostle quite a bit, particularly towards the back of the car. However, the 2018 model includes a well-designed shock system, which means that infants and children in the back won’t be jostled around and will be able to fall asleep and stay napping.

Improved Acoustics

If you have kids sleeping, watching a movie, or playing a game in the backseat, you will likely appreciate the acoustic technology that dampens road noise, making the Sorento a quiet option in more ways than one. This super quiet interior is something that Kia has incorporated into its 2018 models, including the 2018 Sorento.

Budget Friendly Trims and Features

The Sorento has a lot of budget friendly options. Even its most basic trim is equipped with top of the line technology. So, if you’re looking at this vehicle for your family, there are likely many bells and whistles that you can choose some and skip past others.

At Kia North Bay, we sell a lot of family cars: our lot is full of mid- and full-sized SUVs and minivans. But one vehicle consistently strikes us as being the perfect match for drivers with families: the 2018 Mazda MX-5. Keep reading to explore some of the options and features that make this vehicle perfect for you.

What’s New for Kia For The 2018 Kia Soul

When choosing to get a new car, many people may be tempted to stick with brand loyalty. For example, if your last car came from a Kia in North Bay, you may be tempted to go there again for your next car. For those that stay loyal to Kia, you may be familiar with the Soul model. Here are some ways that the 2018 Kia Soul has upgraded from its prior model year.


The Soul had a very successful year in 2017, and the 2018 model is a way to try and carry over that success. Some features that are carrying over include the large cargo space, the fuel economy and the excellent performance. In fact, if the 2018 model is just a little out of your budget, the 2017 could be a great way to get some of that quality for a price you can afford.


One way that the 2018 Kia Soul has improved over its predecessor is that the technology seen in last year’s models is now more readily available. This includes but is not limited to the technology that allows your phone to sync up to the car. Where this technology only came standard in the Exclaim trim or optional in the Plus, it is not more available in the other trim options this year.


Another change to the Soul this year is that there is a new color option called Wild Orange. This option replaces last year’s Brownstone, which is no longer an option. Some enthusiasts seem to think this new color is very fitting for the model.


There are a lot of changes that came out in the 2018 Kia Soul that made it just a little bit better than the prior year. If you are in the market for a new car, it may be worth your while to check out what Kia has to offer this year, as they seem to just keep improving as time goes on.
