Monolithic massive front panel without annoying bright inserts pleases the driver's eye. Information devices projected on the windshield. Multimedia system is equipped with advanced navigation. Hatches occupy the entire roof. All optics in front and behind are made with LEDs. At dusk, they create a truly fantastic spectacle!

Thanks to swallowing any bumps air suspension Quoris goes very soft and quiet. The vibration of the wheels in the cabin is not felt at all. Regardless of speed, the impression when driving is that you are riding a hovercraft. Whatever happens on the road, the body of the car only slightly sways.

If the recommendations prescribed by the manufacturer are followed, the warranty for these cars is one hundred fifty thousand kilometers or eighty-four months of operation (which comes first).

Wonderful Quoris, but still ...

Koreans have flaws. They are inevitable, given that this is the first Kia experience in executive cars.

The driver's seat is not sufficiently height adjustable. Perhaps he is quite satisfied with undersized Koreans, but for Russian warriors, even of medium size, the head almost rests against the ceiling, no matter how you click the keys. If you fill up the back of the driver's seat, you will have to continue to reach for the steering wheel.

We can quite welcome the desire of the authors of the model to the brevity of the dashboard. The readings of the tachometer, speedometer are displayed in the form of analogue scales on the display, the graphics are contrast and easy to read. When you turn on the sport style information monitor changes to digital. Everything is simple and modern.

The joystick control menu of the instrument panel regulates the stiffness of the wheel. When the cursor reaches the last line, it is blocked and does not spin further. A trifle, of course, but rational.

But some messages of the navigation system could be duplicated on the panel. Empty space is more than enough. And for the first time behind the wheel of the novelty, it is not easy to get rid of stereotypes right away.

When restyling cars Koreans improved the stereo system. Now you can not turn a special equalizer - the sound quality is adjusted by itself. Frequency response is suitable for both hard rock and classic.

However, managing the content of the system is still inconvenient. Radio stations each time you need to catch again, making a lot of movements. The manufacturer did not guess to provide buttons on the panel to save the settings of their favorite broadcasters.

The seats have a comfortable profile, the shape of the backrest perfectly fixes the body. But for some reason, they can only be adjusted by raising the chair cushion. On the adjustment back and forth, the authors have forgotten.

The unique softness of the movement has a downside. It saves the driver from any information about the condition of the road, the position of the steering wheel. The impression is that you do not go on a real car, and you play at home in a computer program. It seems that the driver does not control the machine, but the computer, the man behind the wheel only observes the process. There is no danger, but no drive from driving. You should forget about the spectacular turns: it will not allow to quirk Quoris when the system of exchange rate stabilization is on. Even over loose snowdrifts, the car will accelerate confidently, without skids.

But it is necessary to turn off the ESP, and all the advantages will turn to minuses: the car will slip in places where the domestic GAZ will quietly pass like tanks. The control of the machine turns into hard work. Repeat the experiment just does not want.

Only one way out: to trust the automation and go, as ordered by microprocessors. As in the famous joke about rape: relax and try to have fun ...


You can grumble, of course, on anything: there is no limit to perfection. Presumably, the designers Kia identified deficiencies identified and eliminated in the future. With restyling, the updated Quoris has become somewhat better. The engine became more powerful and more economical. It can even fill the ninety second gasoline. But on AI98 the car reacts to gas much better.

But back to the price. Let's go through the market. BMW 7 with an engine of 258 liters. with. will cost 3.7 million. Mercedes S400 with a 333 l engine. with. - about five million. Lexus LS - from 5.35 million. And the seven-year warranty, road support, concierge service? Where did you see such a gorgeous offer for so ridiculous money?

Of course, it seems doubtful that a person who had previously traveled on anything from the German Mercedes-Benz trio, BMW, Audi would suddenly change to a Korean car. For such a decision, Kia has many years to convince customers of the stability of the qualities of the car. But owners of cars of a class below can buy a representative car for its same price, its advantages and the price is quite able to convince.
