In addition to their outstanding performance and head-turning design, every new Kia is also equipped to deliver the best possible fuel economy for all of your daily commutes. However, there are a number of driving behaviors that can negatively affect your new Kia’s overall fuel economy. To help you get the most out of every drop of fuel, here are some fuel efficient driving tips from your friends at New Motors Kia.
There’s nothing wrong with pushing your new Kia to the limit, especially if considering the performance enhancements that go into every new Kia model. However, the faster you go, the less fuel efficient your car is. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. Not only will you conserve more fuel by slowing down, but you will also be able to respond more quickly to potentially life-threatening driving situations.
Lighten Your Load
Your new Kia may be designed to carry all of your toys, but try to keep everything in the garage or inside your home when you don’t need it. Extra items add up, and the additional weight can cause your vehicle to perform less efficiently. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that an extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your vehicle’s gas mileage by up to 2 percent or more.
If you want to make sure that your new Kia runs strong, bring it in for schedule maintenance that will keep it in tip-top shape. Ignoring routine auto maintenance can cause your vehicle’s engine to become clogged and dirty with sediment and other types of buildup. This means that it will need to work harder to get you from point A to point B, and more work means more gasoline.

It goes without saying, but the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most iconic two-door cars in the world. It’s been in countless commercials, hundreds of television shows, and even starred in a major motion picture. But just because the Beetle is the most easily recognizable vehicle Volkswagen makes doesn’t mean that it can’t get better—and let us tell you, it’s better in 2014. Here is a closer look at some of the new features you’ll enjoy when you visit New Motors Volkswagen to test-drive the 2014 Beetle.
Fuel-Efficient 5-Cylinder Engine
4-cylinder engines are more fuel efficient, while 6-cylinders are more powerful and fun to drive. So what do you get in the middle? The answer is Volkswagen’s 2.5-liter in-line 5-cylinder engine. Not only does this peppy powerplant generate 170 horsepower and 177 lbs. ft. of torque, but it also gets up to 31 mpg on the highway when mated with the standard 5-speed manual transmission.
Clean Diesel Technology
The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most iconic vehicles of the 1970’s, an era marked by peace, love, happiness, and a strong concern for the environment. Fortunately, there’s a new Beetle that captures the spirit of the 70’s. The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle TDI® Clean Diesel is powered by a 2.0-liter in-line 4-cylinder TDI® Clean Diesel engine that gets up to 41 mpg on the highway. And with 140 horsepower, you can help to conserve the environment while also having fun exploring it.
GSR Exclusive Features
Adding on to the heart-racing performance of the R-Line, the new Beetle GSR features exclusive styling cues that help give this special-edition model its breathtaking rally-car appearance. Highlights include the exclusive GSR spoiler, GSR dashboard, GSR side decals, and GSR seating surfaces. And thanks to its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the new 2014 Beetle GSR is as much fun to drive as it is to look at.
This is just a small sampling of the large selection of features available on the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle. To test drive a new Beetle, come to New Motors. In addition to our selection of new and used vehicles from Volkswagen, we also sell models from Kia, Subaru, and BMW. For additional vehicle information, call us at (866) 691-5741.
