lack of power can be caused by many things, if it is running sluggish under load conditions it may be as simple as a clogged fuel filter. this is the first and cheapest thing to check and replace.

could be alot of thing kia's a/c draind alot of horse power ,plus going up hill.try turn of a/c on hills.thats the owner of 3 kia's opinion . engine lacks power obstructed exhaust ,catylitic converter. defective plugs and or wires. fuel injection needs cleaned , air filter ,automatic transaxle fluid to much or to little and last my favorite the emmision control system . these are just the main culprits . only you can be the judge of how steep the hills are and how bad the power loss is
I had similar problem with mine replaced the air flow meter and gave it a oil change and before putting oil back in I put 3 litres of auto transmission oil in it and ran in on full idle for 15mins drained that and then oil. This was from the advice of my dad who is a mechanic.
