KIA Sportage EX, V6

Vehicle
2005 Kia Sportage EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Review
The re-designed look of the Sportage is beautiful. KIA went all out to make it look better and suceeded. It has the appearance of the Sorento but still maintains the lines and concept of the original Sportage. The handling is excellent and very responsive. The location of all the functional buttions is very convenient for use. The upgraded sound system that comes standard is excellent. It sounds like a very expensive stereo without the big speakers taking up space. I like the fact that the spare tire has been moved and is no longer on the back door. You can also enter the Sportage via the rear window instead of the entire hatchback. Way to go KIA!
Favorite Features
I like the fact that Sportage now has EPS to help in the event you go into a skid. The vehicle will help you to straighten out of the skid by adding speed to certain wheels and braking the others. Nice safety feature.
Suggested Improvements
The Sportage still has a road noise problem on certain road surfaces. It not annoying but it is noticable. Add some sound insulation at the wheel well. Some drivers like to have a CB to listen to while traveling. The Sportage has no place to install anything under the dash. Add a place for CB's
