2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo: Where are all the Kias?

June 24, 2011

I drove 72 miles on the 405 freeway yesterday, spent time in both L.A. and Orange counties.

And not once did I pass another Kia.

I counted 13 Hyundais, nearly a 50/50 mix of old and new, but not a single Kia.

It wouldn't surprise me in, say, Detroit, but in Southern California, I found it a little sad. Especially since Kia's headquarters is located in Orange County.

Is the new Hyundai that far ahead of the new Kia?
