Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) August 02, 2011
Cars.com, a leading online information source for car shoppers, has released its list of the Top 10 Urban Cars. Kia is the only vehicle manufacturer to place two models picked as winners.
Both the Kia Soul and Kia Forte were named as part of the Top 10 Urban Cars for 2011. Yonkers Kia in Yonkers, N.Y. is celebrating the win by signing up customers for test drives on the city streets to get the firsthand experience of how the vehicles handle in a real urban setting. The New York dealer knows that Kias make great city cars.
"We're one of the largest city-based Kia dealers. Our urban customers love vehicles like the Forte and Soul because they're made with a city dweller in mind – they're small on the outside and roomy on the inside with great city MPG and trendy styling," says Josh Aaronson, Manager of Yonkers Kia.
Cars.com praises the Kia Soul for its "trendy interior", assisted steering, and loads of available features. The Soul was also chosen for its 26 MPG city and roomy five-passenger interior while keeping its exterior small enough for easy city driving.
The Kia Forte five-door was recognized for its "well-designed and capable engine" in combination with ample cargo room not found on competitors like the Mazda3 and Toyota Matrix. Cars.com also favored the Kia Forte because it "costs significantly less and delivers better gas mileage."
"Being the only brand to place two vehicles on the Cars.com 'Top 10 Urban Cars' list underscores the importance of flexible, versatile, and fuel-efficient vehicles for on-the-go urban dwellers," says Kia Motors America Vice President Michael Sprague.
Editors at Cars.com thoroughly surveyed more than 50 vehicles and selected the top ten based on their urban-friendly characteristics, vehicle length, driving visibility, turning radius, parking aids, and city MPG. Selections were picked for "making city living easier."
