Cross-industry partnerships could make used Kias in New York hot cars

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Owners of used Kias in New York might get ideas about what to do with their cars if they see a certain late model Soul at the upcoming Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

Kia has partnered up with several names in the music, fashion, skateboard and technology industries this year in order to prepare a car for SEMA. Enthusiasts who are interested in this Kia might like to know that it was first seen during New York’s Fashion Week in September.

“As a head-turning example of modern design, the Soul was the perfect canvas for influential designers and thought leaders to come together and express everything that would make it further befitting of its name,” said Michael Sprague, Kia’s vice president of marketing.

Some of the manufacturer’s partners for this project included the skateboard shoe company Etnies and Antenna magazine. Owners of used Kias in New York who are looking for ideas on how they can modify their rides can visit the magazine’s website for an image of the car.

A used Kia Rondo in New York could be one option for buyers looking for more space

Looking for a used car in New York and other states that has room for more than six passengers but is smaller than most SUVs or minivans was a concern for one user who wrote to for advice.

The main concern for some buyers is that while the two larger vehicle types offer more space than similar wagons or sedans, fuel economy can be reduced because of higher weight.

The editors at were able to pinpoint three models that may fit the bill: the Mazda5, the E-class wagon from Mercedes-Benz and the Kia Rondo.

A used Kia Rondo in New York may be an affordable option for families looking for space for their children, as it is the least costly of the three options.

The wagon has offered seating for up to seven passengers as an option since 2007, with the ability for the second and third row of seats to fold down for cargo, as well as “an abundance of cupholders and storage bins that make the Rondo’s interior that much more useful,” according to
