Go Up  Kia Retona

Deriving its name from the phrase "ireturn to nature," Retona is a rugged new sport-utility vehicle. With bold, traditional jeep styling, Retona joins Sportage as part of Kia's ambitious plans for the sport-utility market.

Retona is the first sport-utility vehicle to pass the Korean government's regime of safety tests that resulted in its selection as the new multipurpose vehicle of the nation's armed forces. Living up to the sport-utility concept, Retona offers a spacious interior and variety of seating and cargo-carrying possibilities. The practical hardtop features classic, rugged looks and bold styling, while the fun softtop will appeal to younger drivers.

Go Up  Performanse

Available with a choice of 2.0-liter DOHC gasoline or 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled diesel engines, Retona brings a new level of performance to the class. The standard 2.0-liter FED DOHC engine generates a powerful 136 PS (94 kW) and 18.5 kgm (175 Nm) of torque, while the 2.0-liter RFTCi intercooled turbo diesel engine delivers 91 PS (68.4 kW) of power and 20.5 kgm (206 Nm) of torque. And auto-locking hubs ensure you can shift from 2- to 4-wheel drive and back at speeds under 60 km/h--no stopping necessary.
