2022 Kia Forte arrives with a bold, new face and some welcome tech updates

The 2022 Kia Forte has debuted sporting an aggressive new maw and a host of new tech enhancements. You may think the compact sedan is dead but look again. The 2022 Honda Civic is more of the same and much more, and it seems the new Kia Forte has a lot going for it if you refuse to pay more money for a small (and generic-looking) crossover.

Hyundai Factory Safety Service Robot puts Spot on factory patrol

Boston Dynamic's first "BigDog" robot may have been the stuff of robotic nightmares, but its smaller Spot has received mixed feedback both from people and companies. The quadruped's more streamlined appearance still doesn't easily remind one of a dog (or any living creature for that matter), but it has become more approachable and a teeny bit more affordable to the point that companies, hospitals, and even governments have put it to some use. The latest to join that list of clientele is the Hyundai Motor Group, employing Spot as a late-night safety officer.

2022 Kia Carnival Review

2022 Kia Carnival Review

You could accuse Kia of trickery with the 2022 Carnival, a minivan that pretends to be an SUV, but sometimes you have to sugar the medicine that people need to take. Practical, flexible, and capable modern minivans may be, but for many drivers they're still far from desirable, even if in a lot of cases they'd be the most sensible option.

Take the Kia K5, for instance, or the all-new Carnival minivan and EV6 crossover. As expected, the all-new Sportage is no different, even trumping its Hyundai Tucson stablemate in the design aspect.
