Next Generation Kia CUV: The CROSS GT

By Product Expert | Posted in Concept, Kia News on Friday, July 26th, 2019 at 6:54 PM
gateway kia warrington pa cross-gt cuv concept

Kia CUV designers offer us a glimpse into the next generation of vehicles.

Kia suggests plans to design the elegant yet powerful Cross GT. It’s another example of Kia’s world-class design sensibility. The vehicle is a luxury hybrid that’s powered by a state-of-the-art 3.8-liter V6 engine, that features an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. Maybe Telluride’s evolution? Backing the engine is Kia’s parallel hybrid system. Together the engine and the electric motor produce 400 horsepower and an all-electric range of 20 miles.

Cross GT blurs the line between the sleek GT concept car and a luxury Kia CUV.


Inspired. By nature.

The Cross GT’s interior could be described as a modern luxury in harmony with nature. Four Almond-Terra-colored, leather-covered bucket seats feature contrasting stitching and are tanned with vegetable oil—and dyed without chemicals. The instrument panel employs re-harvested American Walnut, which adds to the environmentally-friendly appeal of the cabin.

Exploring everything a CUV could be.

The Kia brand is growing fast. The sophisticated look and approach of the Cross GT are clearly closely related to the Sorento—and its vision of what we may yet offer to the audience that is looking for a fresh take on the CUV.

Warrington Kia Service Tips: Wiper Washer Operation

By Product Expert | Posted in Service Tips on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 at 2:17 PM

In this article, our Quakertown Kia Service specialists describe wiper washer operation. We at Gateway Kia of Quakertown understand how details to operating new features and technologies can be overwhelming and sometimes confusing. Accordingly, Kia dealers collectively strive to educate customers regardless of where the vehicle was purchased. Please be sure to ask your Kia representative to demonstrate wiper washer operation during your perfect Kia delivery.


For safety reasons, it is crucial to ensure you are familiar with the front and rear wiper washer operation, and the Auto Control Rain-Sensing function (if equipped). This is especially true states with harsh climates. After reading this article, watch the video below.

Windshield Wipers Washers Operation

gateway kia warrington service tips wiper washer control

To operate:

  • Move wiper-lever Up/Down to change wiper modes.
  • Push switch “B” to adjust intermittent wipe
  • Pull wiper-lever to spray and wipe

QUICK TIPS

  • Moving switch “B” up increases intermittent wipe frequency and wipe speed.
  • Moving switch down decreases the frequency of wipes

Auto Control (Rain Sensing)*

The rain sensor located on the upper end of the windshield glass senses the amount of rainfall and controls the wiping cycle for the proper interval. The more it rains, the faster the wiper operates. When the rain stops, the wiper stops. To adjust the Auto Rain Sensing speed setting, move the control switch “B” up/down.


Rear Wiper & Washer*

gateway kia warrington service tips wiper washer controlTo operate:

  • Rotate Rear Wiper switch to change Wiper modes
  • Push to spray and wipe

QUICK TIPS

  • On Rear Wipers, intermittent wipe function is not adjustable.

In most models, the wiper mode can be displayed in the instrument cluster as well. Customers can enable or disable this function in the user settings menu. Please also refer to the Owner’s Manual and Features and Functions Guide (FFG) for instructions on how to change wiper blades as some models require the system to be in Service Mode.

Wiper Service Mode

To inspect or replace the windshield wiper blades to prevent damaging the hood, the blades need to be moved to the service position “A”.

gateway kia warrington service tips wiper washer control

With the ignition ON, then turning the engine OFF, within 20 seconds move the wiper switch to the MIST position “B” and hold the switch for more than two seconds until the wiper blade is in the fully up position.

To return wipers to normal position, turn the ignition ON, then activate MIST.


Warrington Kia Service Tips: Shift Before Ready

By Product Expert | Posted in Service Tips, Technology on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 at 1:34 PM
gateway warrington kia service tips shift before ready

If you have a Hybrid (HEV) or Electric vehicle (EV) and never heard of “Shift Before Ready,” then you should read this service tip. To start an HEV or EV vehicle, you must follow a different sequence than that is a traditional gas vehicle?

GAS VEHICLE: To start the vehicle, you must have the shifter in the Park (P) position. Generally, you start the engine and then shift the vehicle into Reverse, Neutral, or Drive.

In comparison…

HYBRID or EV: To start the vehicle, you must have the shifter in the Park (P) position and wait for the computer to show “READY.” After the system is ready, then you can shift into Reverse, Neutral, or Drive. However, you happen to shift before the system shows “READY,” then the vehicle will not start.

Watch the video for a demonstration of the system readiness check and how the vehicle must be in the “READY” mode before being shifted out of “PARK.”

VIDEO

The Shift Before Ready signals

Again, if the vehicle is shifted out of Park (P) before being “READY,” it is termed as “Shift before Ready.”

If “Shift Before Ready” occurs, the Green “READY” symbol (A) will not be illuminated. The vehicle will need to be shifted back into the Park (P) position and then restarted (ignition cycled).

gateway warrington kia service tips shift before ready

Our Gateway Kia of Warrington PA service experts recommends testing the Shift Before Ready sequence. The experience will add to your knowledge about the feature and your vehicle.

As with all features, Kia recommends you test your vehicle features with a Gateway Kia of Warrington PA sales representative. Your Warrington representative is trained to help you navigate through all the features installed in your Kia. Gateway Kia of Warrington PA practices the “Kia Perfect Delivery Process” to ensure you receive an excellent customer experience.

Redesigned Urban Runabout Achieves Top Safety Ratings

  • Soul’s optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist systems earned a “Superior” rating in testing
  • Recent accolade increases the total number of Kia models included in the 2019 IIHS Safety Awards to 11

IRVINE, Calif., July 2, 2019 — The completely redesigned 2020 Kia Soul has earned Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The TSP+ designation was awarded to Soul models equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist1 systems and LED headlights2. On the heels of the Stinger’s recent TSP+ rating, the Soul’s new accolade increases the total number of Kia vehicles with 2019 Top Safety Pick3 or Top Safety Pick Plus4 ratings to 11 when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights.

gateway kia of warrington pa-2020 kia soul top safety pick

“Sales have shown that the newly designed Soul is hitting all the right marks with car shoppers,” said Michael Cole, chief operating officer, and EVP, Kia Motors America (KMA). “The Soul’s unmatched style, driving refinement, and invigorating technology are key factors that have drawn consumers to Kia’s urban car, and this latest safety award is yet another reason the Soul should be considered a top contender in the compact car segment.”

2019 Top Safety Pick

To qualify for a 2019 TSP+ rating, a vehicle must earn “Good” ratings in six crashworthiness tests – driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint – as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention and a “Good” headlight rating. The Soul earned “Good” ratings for all six crashworthiness tests, and a “Superior” rating for the optional front crash prevention systems, which helped it avoid collisions in the IIHS’s 12-mph and 25-mph track tests. The “Good” rating for the headlights applies to LED projector headlights only.

For 2020, the Soul continues to transcend unmatched style, peppy performance, thrilling technology, and urban practicality. With a versatile lineup that includes the LX, S, X-line, GT-Line, EX, GT Turbo, and Soul EV, there’s truly a Soul for everyone.
