Will the Kia Optima Sportswagon Be Available in Redding?

 457 × 459

Sadly, Grumpy Cat is right. The all-new Optima Sportswagon won't be available in Redding, or even in North America as a whole; they're keeping the stunning new estate car tucked away in the new European model lineup for the time being.

That's exactly how we feel, Grumpy Cat. The idea of no Sportswagon in the states is a big old "No" for us, too.

California to Soon Welcome a New Hybrid--And This One is a Little Different


The greater Redding area--along with most of California, really--is known for our ready acceptance of hybrid, all-electric, and eco-conscious cars and SUVs. But, it seems like with every hybrid comes a little bit of compromise; less storage capacity, tighter passenger room, or weaker fuel savings.

And it could be all yours.

Squash Those Fuel Economy Myths With

As we travel further into the 21st century, the notions we've held dear about maintaining vehicle fuel economy begin to fall by the wayside. Models gain new features and capabilities that alter their performances. Letting your car warm up before driving it in the cold might not actually save you any gas, especially if you driver a newer model.
