Kia’s “A Good Vibe” Commercial Goes Viral

When you turn on this spring’s two-and-a-half minute ad spot for the Kia brand, the first thing you’ll hear is “I don’t wanna go.” It’s the catchphrase and title of a catchy, charming song by artists Kate Kim and Lee Radde. You’re practically guaranteed to get the tune stuck in your head, but you’re liable to sound conflicted. You’re singing “I don’t want to go,” yet all you do want to do is go and drive one of the recently redesigned Kia Rio and Kia Picanto that are advertised in the commercial.

The upbeat and memorable Kia commercial follows around Kate Kim and Lee Radde as they each climb into their own Kia vehicles. The all-new Kia Picanto—a super efficient, five-door hatchback—and the compact Kia Rio sedan both prove to serve as the perfect city cars for the musical artists. The “good vibe” association seems to promise that only the best journeys can be had in these updated Kia vehicles. Meanwhile, the fun, split-screen video and the perfect pop song have kept viewers wanting more, making this Kia commercial a viral hit.

If you do want to go in the Kia Rio or Kia Picanto, don’t worry—we have plenty on the lot at Gossett Kia, and we won’t mind if you sing “I Don’t Want to Go” by Kate Kim and Lee Radde while you shop.

2017 Kia Niro Design Features Make It One of the Smartest Cars Around

The 2017 Kia Niro is a crossover hybrid with some of the most innovative design features you’ll see in the segment. From its materials to its storage options, the Kia Niro design features make it a fantastic buy for any driver.

The Niro is made to be lightweight, not only further improving fuel economy but making it more fun to drive as well. It’s the most fuel-efficient crossover on the market thanks in part to the light aluminum in the hood and tailgate and advanced strength steel that supports the core.

It also boosts fuel economy with smart aerodynamics. Air vents placed in front of the front wheels help redirect air around the wheels to let the air glide through easily instead of causing resistance. The Niro even has a flap on the grille that closes to reduce drag at highway speeds.

The Niro gets size and space perfect. It’s not so big as to make it difficult to drive and less agile on the road like some other compact crossovers, but it’s bigger than subcompacts that might not have enough cargo or passenger space. As if that wasn’t enough, you get even more cargo space with a concealed storage compartment underneath the cargo floor.

2017 Kia Niro Review

2017 Kia Niro
Available in five trims, the 2017 Kia Niro offers a strong set of excellent premium features at a price few competitors can match.

The 2017 Niro is the latest model to arrive in Kia’s lineup and it’s performing wonderfully when it comes to reviews. The all-new hybrid SUV is the most affordable model on the market and earns up to an EPA-estimated 50 mpg combined*. Available in five trims, the 2017 Kia Niro offers a strong set of premium features at a price few competitors can match.

The all-new Kia Niro starts at $23,875 MSRP and comes equipped with seating for up to five passengers. A four-cylinder engine paired to an electric motor and paired with an automatic transmission produces a total of 139 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Drivers will also see a standard 7-inch touchscreen, keyless entry, a rearview camera, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and much more for that price.

The Niro easily undercuts many premium SUVs with a full offering of luxury features at an affordable price. Adding a premium sound system, navigation system, heated steering wheel, and leather-trimmed seats won’t put the Niro’s price over $31,000.

The new Kia Niro lands under the Sportage, making it the South Korean brand’s smallest SUV. Even so, it offers plenty of space and is comparable to the Honda HR-V.

We here at Gossett Kia South are pumped to see the 2017 Niro doing so well!
