I purchased this vehicle as I was in need of a commuter car (I drive 200 mile/day). I also own a Sorento and Have been very happy with it. There is plenty of room even in the back seat (my wife is nearly 6 ft and she felt comfortable in the back with our two kids). After driving most of the competition, I just had to go with kia again. For the money there is none better.
sporty styling and lots of interior space
More storage on the inside. A better sound system (rear speakers are a joke) And where is the ashtray?
