Kia now makes a quality mid sized SUV. True it is truck based and rides over hops a bit unsteady, but all SUVs built on a truck chassis do. On the beach or the trails this SUV shines. It truly handles light trails like a Jeep, albeit more refined in cabin and appearance to boot. Gas mileage is better than advertised with 26 highway and 20 around town. After I get sick of this vehicle I will use it to tow stuff with, the engine is awesome.
Power, rugged on the trails and sharp looking.
Radio is a bit weak and 17" wheels as a standard would have been nice.
