Yet Again Three Kia Models Earn 2015 Good Design Awards

It seems as if Kia models are being praised more and more each year, with 2015 being no exception. Just recently, three Kia models earned 2015 GOOD DESIGN awards for–you guessed it–really good designs.

The models honored were the 2016 Kia Sorento, 2016 Optima, and Soul-based Trail’ster concept car, thanks to a jury that included design professionals, industry specialists, and design media.

Plus, this is the second year in a row in which three Kia models earned the GOOD DESIGN awards, with the Kia K900, Soul EV, and GT4 Stinger concept car being honored last year. It’s truly a testament to Kia’s top-notch design to have six distinct vehicles honored in such a small period of time.

Before You Get Stuck, Check Out These Tips for Driving in the Snow!

snowy roadWhen the snowy weather starts to pick up, it’s easy to assume you can avoid driving when there’s precipitation on the road. But what if you leave when the roads are clear, and quickly find yourself in the midst of a downfall?

Here are some tips for driving in the snow to help you out:

  • Slow down immediately. Some of the most dangerous, icy conditions occur right as the snowfall begins–especially if black ice begins to form on the road.
  • In general, drive slower than the speed limit, which is not determined with snow in mind.
  • Keep an additional distance between your car and all of the cars around you. If someone needs to stop, the snow will prevent them from doing so quickly.
  • Don’t make any sharp twists or turns, which could cause your car to skid on or off the road.
  • If you do find yourself sliding, steer in the direction of the skid in the hope that your tires will sync back up and give you control.
