I have owned a Sportage since 1998. I loved my first one but my new Sportage is way beyond comparison. The ride is smooth, the exterior is beautiful. I wanted something that didn't look like you were driving a box around and I found it in the new Sportage; it's classy looking yet sporty. This car is even approved by my teenage grandson. The performance of the car is more that I expected and so far I haven't found anything that I dislike about it. You've got a hit in this one!
The better horsepower, the leather interior, tilt stirring wheel (I'm short), dual exhaust, moon roof,over all handling of the car.
A little better gas mileage, with the price of gas. I'm getting 17-18 in city and about 23 on the road. Not complaining, worth the switch out of the extra comfort versus a little less gas mileage per mile.
