Kia is not just a fuel-efficient car, because in the near future the brand plans to integrate in the vehicle lineups a start-stop engine.
That means if somebody is stuck in traffic jam, thanks to this start-stop engine, the driver can automatically restart the power plant when the brake or clutch is released.
This new technology is already popular overseas. Owners will be happy to drive a start-stop-equipped vehicle which adds safeties in urban driving.
For the South Korean automakers’ campaign this move destined to improve the fuel efficiency of their vehicles it’s just a move.
Kia brand begun shifting away from the use of big V-6 engine in key product lines and is including Kia Optima, which is the first hybrid from Kia.
The two sedans offer four-cylinder engines for this year, with high-performance cars to rely on turbocharging for added power.
