What is a KN Car? It's a KIA!

It recently came to my attention that my Kia Telluride logo looks like it says "KN" to some people.

I have had people ask what is a KN car.

But, it does not say KN, it is actually Kia's new logo, which they unveiled in January 2021.

I have never owned a Kia in my life until I got my Kia Telluride.

I have to say I love the new logo over the older logo.

While the older one clearly says Kia, this one may be a little harder to read and has some people confused.

I personally think the new logo looks much more stylish!

Here is what Kia had to say about it's new logo back at the unveiling:

  • Kia celebrates its new face and slogan, declaring the brand’s future transformation
  • The new logo features ‘symmetry’, ‘rhythm’ and ‘rising’ elements that embody Kia’s confidence and commitment to customers
  • Kia discloses new brand slogan: ‘Movement that inspires’
  • Kia sets new Guinness World Record for ‘Most unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) launching fireworks simultaneously’ during logo unveiling show
  • The new brand purpose and strategy will be presented to the world on January 15

Kia Telluride

By the way, I also really love my Telluride.

We have a 2022 Kia Telluride SX Prestige Nightfall Edition.

Since I started having kids ten years ago my cars have been getting bigger and bigger.

When I was pregnant with my second baby I gave in and got a minivan. And, I will admit I loved it for that stage of life.

Going from a sports car to a minivan is always a little hard. But oh did that van make life easier with babies.

When it comes to installing multiple car seats, hauling strollers around, being able to open the doors hands free with sliding doors, and not generally caring about the messes made by toddlers, you cannot beat a minivan.

Last year the lease was coming due on my third minivan, and I decided it was time for something different.

My kids are elementary age, two of them are in backless boosters, and I only have one left in a full harness car seat.

I don't really need to haul strollers around anymore, so I made the jump from minivan to SUV.

Now I know tons of moms never want to drive a minivan, and prefer SUVs from the start, but for me the minivan was great for a stage in my life.

Now that the kids are a little older we upgraded to a 2022 Kia Telluride SXP Nightfall and I have never been happier. I did not LOVE my vans like I love my Telluride.

My three kids still fit just fine, except now I yell at them a little louder if they drop food on the floor haha.

The tech in the car is wonderful. The kids can charge all of their devices while using them, and it has everything we need to keep a family of five happy.

In fact it has some features I probably could have used when my kids were younger too.

Features like being able to turn the audio and speakers down in the back area of the car, turning on white noise or nature sounds, ambient lighting in the car, built in sun shades, heated and cooling seats in the second row, and many other cool features that make life a little easier with kids.

KN Car is a KIA

So when you see a new car with a KN logo remember it's Kia.

Considering I had never had a Kia, I was slightly hesitant to make the jump from minivan to SUV.

But honestly I love it so much more than any of my recent minivans.

Kia has truly stepped it up in terms of quality and style.

What do you think of the new Kia logo? Does it look like a KN? Or does it look new and stylish and still obviously Kia?

Let me know your thoughts!
