Best Blogs of 2016               

December 20th, 2016 by

Kia Country’s blog is designed to inform and entertain. The blog is a vehicle for showcasing new Kia vehicle models, technology, news and awards. But more importantly, it provides an opportunity for us to share our expertise on a wide variety of topics related to buying and owning a car.  It also gives a place to spotlight our concern for local community issues and have some fun. We are delighted that thousands of readers have found it worth following. Remarkably, half of our readership comes from outside the Greater Charleston area.


In compiling this year’s list, we asked what makes a “best blog”. The five most read stories of the year were Where is Your Spare Tire?, 6 Benefits of Window Tinting , Pollen Protection for Your Car Window Sticker Most Reliable Source of Information and Purchase a New Car with Financial Smarts. The first two also generated the most comments from readers.

Our personal favorites are most often about the two subjects most near and dear to us: cars and animals including Ten Classic American Convertibles, Kia Imagines Autonomous Future at SEMA, and multiple blog posts and activities related to our partnership with Charleston Animal Society,  our sponsorship of the Charleston Firefighter Calendar and out long-term commitment to animal welfare.


P2260410We also introduced x new models this year, the Kia Sportage, Kia Niro, Kia Cadenza, Kia Forte, Kia Rio and the Kia Soul Turbo. All of our models won awards or made Top Ten lists this year and Kia nabbed three coveted J.D. Power awards including ranking first among all automotive brands in initial quality. These accolades have led to record sales each month this year.

Let us know which blog posts were your favorites and any story ideas you may have for 2017. Thanks for reading.
