We tried all the big name small sport utes. This vehicle fit our needs perfectly. With the v6 it handles, and rides very well. We got the EX model mainly it was the only one with the upgardes we wanted. It has all the fetures we had in our 15yr old Mazda 929 trade in, and a few more.The leather seats are comfortable,rear seats have all kinds of room we didn't expect. Their is a Toyota RAV4 in the family and this thing has more creature comfort than we expected. The cargo area is much better than we expected. When we decided to purchase a new vehicle we tried the Tribute,Escape,Honda,Suziki,Chevy.what a disapointment.The tribute & Escape are a bad joke. KIA IS THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK.
Standard safety features,front and side curttain airbags,Seat mounted airbags, ABS brakes,Traction control,ESP Stability system.Total array of convenience items.Performance for a small engine is surprising. Interior is quiet.
Power front Seat ala-Sorento. Larger inside rearview mirror. So far this vehicle is a sleeper. Mud Guards should be standard.
