We considered the RAV4,Honda,Hundai SantaFe,HundaiTucson(Same Co.as KIA),Nissan,and others. Our New Sportage is the exact size we were looking for in a small suv at the right price. Excellemt build quality. We opted for the EX leather package,with moon roof,stability control,and ABS brakes,Side curtian air bags as well as many other features all standard.Warranty is good selling feature.For the price its the best bang for the buck in todays market.
Leather interior.Upgraded dash w/CD,all the safety features listed and more not listed.Handling is quick and precise. Braking is excellent.Ride is firm to my liking,some people don't care for.Keyless entry and security system.Fit and finish exceeds many competers.I will buy another Kia or Hyundai.
Power seats and a anvagation system like those in the Sorento EX. A little more power,although the v6 is a good performer for our needs.
