Fun car

We like our new KIA. It looks good and feels good to drive. Easy to get in & out of. It has many features & the location of the command buttons is convenient. It would be nice to have a video to explain all the functions and how to use them. Like the 3 steering selections and the option to shift with the auto Transmission. It's peppy and comfortable. Great brakes! Love the Warrantee. Tony Slow

Good little SUV with some practicality flaws

Reviewed by Mike

I rented the base model Sportage for a 1600 mi road trip and was able to see how the vehicle performs in many driving conditions. The seats are comfortable, there's plenty of room, and my overall driving experience was good. The car handles well at speed on the highway, gets decent gas mileage ( averaged 28.3 on the highway doing 70-75mph ) Road noise was also on the low end of moderate ( probably more in favor of good tires then vehicle sound dampening ) Some flaws I noticed was viewing angle out of the rear view mirror. For some reason, no matter my seating position, I was always looking down, out of the back of the car. This isn't bad around town, but on the open road you can't see whats behind you until the cars begin to get close. I'm 5,10 and could see this being an even bigger problem with tall people. The engine lacks in power around 60mph. I noticed quite a few times I would have to floor it to get up a small hill and maintain anything above 55mph. The A/C vents in the back don't really push any air. Even at max fan-speed you can barely feel the air in the back. The car handled gravel roads and ditches pretty well. A bit stiff for off-road but it was manageable. All in all it's a decent car, but lacks in some simple areas.

Seriously the 'funnist' car I've EVER driven! I buy new about every 3 years... I really think I'll keep this one awhile longer than that! I'm totally happy!!!!!! The sportage has so much bang for the buck (lots of upgrades) and... it's sooooo cute!

My new vehicle

Really comfortable for the driver and the passengers. Great gas mileage and not bad looking. I hate car dealers, but went through the Costco car buying service and got a pretty good price without the hassle of negotiating.

I haven't put many miles on my new Sportage however I had to go on an ambulance call during the "blizzard of 14" and the 4 wheel drive enabled me to get where I needed to go safely. I have driven 4x4 vehicles for many years and was happy to find a new one with the warranty that it has. If you need reliability for the weather give this a try.

I had a Kia Soul which I loved, traded it in for the Sportage since I needed an AWD vehicle in the Colorado weather, have had the snow experience the last couple of weeks and I now feel like I have control of the vehicle in snowy weather. So happy with all the enhanced features (bluetooth, radio via my smart phone) my Soul had but better! Would recommend this car to family and friends!
