This car has lots of cool stuff. All the features in "drivewise technology" are awesome! That sounds like a very luxurious experience for a car like this.

What's so good about Brembo brakes? And what is torque vectoring?

Brembo is just a premium brand that makes brake hardware. Usually their stuff is sold as aftermarket performance parts, but some manufacturers put them on from the factory.

Torque vectorying refers to controlling the engine power independently for each wheel. It's mostly to help the car carry a lot of speed when cornering, but it can also be good for acceleration in general. Be aware that Kia (as a lot of manufacturers are doing now) has a kind of "poor mans" torque vectoring, where they accomplish it by delivering equal power all around, and then reduce power on individual wheels by applying the brakes at those wheels.

Thank you for the explanation! So Brembo is an aftermarket brake company and people generally install Brembo brakes when they want something better than OEM. Got it! So it's pretty cool when the manufacturer uses them.

Interesting about torque vectoring. I guess the car would need to be all wheel drive. Okay, so I see Kia has sort of a cheap way of doing it. I don't blame them. Keeping the price realistic is important also. And for me, I won't be getting the more powerful V6 or all wheel drive so it won't make a difference to me. Thanks again!

Here's a quick little chart with some more specifications...

I never really thought about it but that 2.0 has a lot of power for such a small, gas sipping motor. The V6 is phenomenal. I notice premium is recommended for both. That's fine with me but I bet it'll make some people uncomfortable.

even the corvette had less horsepower in the late 80s with the L98. although it had a lot of torque. about 350 ft lbs.

While I agree it's impressive for a 4 cylinder (it's more than the BMW 330i I had), pretty much every manufacturer has a turbo 4 with more or less those exact numbers. As far as the premium gas, that's just the way things are going these days. I think the majority of new cars require it at this point. Pretty much everything has gone high compression in order to meet the efficiency standards we have.

Right. Mercedes-Benz has a four cylinder running 375 horsepower in the CLA45 AMG. That's insane. And tunes currently bring it up to about 450...

The Ford Focus RS has 350 horsepower and I'm sure tunes exist for it as well. We've come a long way with little engines!
