I was not as happy with my 2002 Kia sportage Ex 4x4. I was looking at honda crvs when I heard of the new 2005 Sportage. Almost certain I wouldn't buy another one I went and test drove one. First of all it looks more expensive than my 2002. It is built much better and more expensive interior parts are used. I am amazed at what I got for $21,000. (and yes this is the top of the line model!) Lets just hope its better mechanically than my old one. Only time will tell.
New design, 4x4, sunroof, alot less expensive than its competion. (was going to pay about $5,000 more for a honda).
My old 2002 was a piece of junk. I am hoping this one is better. I've only had it a couple weeks so time will tell.
