If you’re searching for a commuter car, you’re probably considering a variety of factors like fuel economy, comfort, entertainment, and style. Thankfully, the Kia lineup is full of amazing cars and SUVs to meet your needs. Here are our top picks for commuting to your office in Bangor, Maine.
Depending on the model year you choose, your Sportage could bear a wide array of designs. Whether you prefer the rounder fourth-gen version or the latest, more angular fifth-gen model, the Sportage is an ideal commuter vehicle. The last five model years of the Sportage have the ability to get up to 30 mpg on the highway or more.
Other available amenities that you could find on Sportage models include heated seats, smartphone connectivity, and heated outside mirrors for added convenience during cold Maine winters.
The Soul is a great in-between vehicle when it comes to size. While it’s not as large as other Kia SUVs, it still has a large cargo area when the rear seats are folded down — making it a versatile vehicle for work and play. The last three model years of the Soul have the ability to get up to 35 mpg on the highway and come with a host of advanced driver-assist features for in-city driving. On top of all that, the latest Soul is available in a couple of two-tone paint options for added style.
If a sedan is your ideal choice, the third-generation Kia Forte should be on your list of candidates. This sporty car was redesigned in 2018 and even got exciting GT trims that provide a thrilling drive. From the 2019 to the latest 2022 model, the Forte can get up to 41 mpg on the highway, saving you a ton of money at the gas pump. Inside, you could find a large 10.25-inch touch-screen display, wireless smartphone connectivity, Lane Departure Warning, and much more.
