Featured Vehicle – 2017 Kia Niro

ASK - 2017 KIa Niro

All Star Kia of Baton Rouge loves keeping our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Before you know it, all the 2017 models will be introduced and we will be saying goodbye to the 2016 models. We would like to introduce you to the 2017 Kia Niro!

Combining hybrid efficiency with a sleek body that boasts crossover traits, Kia introduces the Kia Niro as a small hybrid crossover. The attractive appearance with wide and low proportions finished off with a Tiger Nose Grille, will make the Kia Niro look like a car and not a hybrid.

Kia has designed this vehicles to be lightweight yet strong. Over 53% of the Niro is designed from advanced high-strength steel.

Its Atkinson Cycle 1.6-L four-cylinder gas engine pairs with an electric motor for an output of 146 horsepower and 195 pounds of torque. Its estimated fuel efficiency is a combined 50 mpg.

Kia has the designed the Niro to be extra comfortable. With higher seating positions and denser seat cushion, it will provide optimal long-distance support. And to keep the cabin quiet, Kia has built the Niro to have stiffer suspension bushings, more sound insulation, an acoustic windshield and dampers inside the steering wheel hubs to minimize vibration.

The all new Kia Niro will come with the latest technology and safety features including:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Standard UVO3 System with a 7-inch touchscreen including Apple CarPlay and Android Play

One of Kia’s newest features, which will also be included in the Niro, is the Eco-Driver Assistance System. This system is aimed to maximize fuel mileage by coaching the driver about when to coast and when to brake. The Predictive Energy Control uses the navigation and cruise control systems to anticipate geographical changes on the road. This determines when it’s optimal to recharge the battery and when it’s better to apply stored energy towards the wheels.

The official release date of the 2017 Kia Niro has yet to be announced. However, it is estimated that Kia will release the Niro in late 2016 or early 2017.

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in South Louisiana, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Build a Fort

Growing up, we all use to build forts. Now it’s time to teach the kiddos! So grab all the blankets, pillows and stuffed animals in the house to make the ultimate fort! Don’t be afraid to rearrange your house for the day. You’re going to need all the chairs, couches and tables you have! Afterwards, eat dinner, watch movies and make memories!

Hold a Car Wash

Park your car in the driveway and let your children give it a good scrub with a bucket of water and sponge or with a garden house! Either way, your kids will stay cool and you’ll have a clean car!

Volunteer Your Time

Volunteering teaches your children compassion and responsibility –it also keeps them busy. They’re plenty of things your children do to help out the community! For example clean up a green space or collect canned goods. You can also bring your kiddos around the neighborhood and help your elderly neighbors do day-to-day tasks such as watering plants, putting up groceries, cleaning their car and much more! For further information visit your local Food Pantry or Animal Shelter to see if they would like some extra hands to help!

Create a Slip-N-Slide

Grab a tarp out of the garage, a garden house and Dawn dish soap to create the ultimate slip-n-slide. Your kids will stay busy for hours and they’ll love you for it! Just lay down the tarp, pour some soap to make it extra slippery and let it work its magic. If you have a hill on the side of your house we recommend putting the tarp there. You won’t have to use as much soap and the kids will feel like it’s an actual slide!

Hide-N-Seek

For those rainy days or those miserable humid days, hide-n-seek is a great game for the whole family to play! To step it up a notch, invite the neighbor kids over to play. The kids will love playing with their friends.

Crafting Day

Most crafts stores — including chains like Michael’s, A. C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby — offer hands-on activities just for kids such as scrap booking, box decorating, bead stringing, as well as projects using clay, pipe cleaners, and more! Some classes are free; others require a nominal fee — typically $5 or less. For more information about classes, visit Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, you can visit your local craft store!

Relay Races - ASK, Scion

Relay Races

This is a great outdoor and indoor activity! Set up different obstacle courses that the kids have to maneuver through and time them each time! It makes for a little healthy competition and they will have a blast doing it. If you it’s raining, you can set up obstacles courses in different rooms for optimal fun.

Bike around the Neighborhood

If your kiddos are wanting to learn how to ride a bike, the summer is the perfect time to teach them! Biking around the neighborhood or a local park is an easy way to get out energy and enjoy the outdoors! Don’t forget to wear helmets!

Baking Cookies

Baking is always a fun and yummy way to enjoy the summer! Kids always love to help out with baking. Throughout the summer, try different cookie recipes and see which ones you like the best! Whether that be chocolate chip, cookie cut outs or snickerdoodle! We are sure your kids will love this activity.

Go to the Beach - ASK

Go To the Beach

This activity might have to be planned in advance but it’s a great way for your kids to get the best night sleep after a long day in the sand. Make sandcastles, find crabs and splash around in the water! Just don’t forget the sunscreen!

All these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!
