At Jake Sweeney Kia, we know that as the years pass, our expectations shift. Those that need a sports car at one point of their lives may need a minivan at another point, thanks to new tiny passengers who need special seating they find along life’s road. And today, we want to cover those new drivers not at either of those points: the college graduate.

They’re not newbies, but they’re also at a very unique point in life. They need a reliable vehicle, much like the one that got them through school in the first place. However, with the new career options that graduating college can bring forward, this is a great time to invest in a new vehicle that will be with them for years to come. And wouldn’t you know it, we happen to specialize in reliable and affordable new and used Kia vehicles.

In terms of compact SUVs, the 2019 Kia Niro has several different options that offer longevity and affordability. Its Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle model offers 29 miles of total electric range, making it perfect for small errands, and will also help with those lengthy commutes. It also stands out from the pack of very similar looking plug-in hybrids out there. While most PHEVs seem to subscribe to the “hatchback or nothing” school of aesthetics, this is a PHEV that conforms more to conventional SUV standards while also standing out amongst that very already saturated crowd thanks to its unique grille and cyan highlights at the back and front of the vehicle.

There are so many other great options at our Florence, KY Kia dealership. The 2019 Kia Soul offers a subcompact vehicle with surprising storage space and an amazingly fun drive with impressive gas mileage as well. The iconic boxy style is also unapologetically cool, while there’s plenty of bells and whistles to keep the technology-craving appeased as well.

So come in today to Jake Sweeney Kia for the best deals on both used and new Kia models. It’s a solid investment for your college grad’s future, much like college was in the first place. See you soon!
