The latest creative entry to bear Kia’s new brand positioning Give It Everything, 'The World’s Shortest Test Drive,' illustrates how Kia gives it everything by putting the Sorento through its paces, showcasing many available features.

The answer lies in the latest spot by Kia Motors America (KMA) which demonstrates 17 features on a 335-foot straightaway in 22-seconds flat, making it the shortest test drive ever.

In the spot, titled 'The World’s Shortest Test Drive,' KMA leverages the ever-dwindling attention spans of consumers by turning the typical test drive on its head and challenging the usual car features ad by literally packing the most innovative and desired features into it. Because life’s too short for boring test drives.
