I got the first 2011 Sportage in this area. It is an EX AWD model, 18" wheels, 6 spd automatic, 4 cyl 176 hp engine. The ride is great, handling and power far better than my previous vehicles, Found this SUV while actually looking at another make. It was just off the delivery truck and not even on the lot yet. The appearance of this car is outstanding. I enjoy getting all the looks while driving around town. Am looking forward to this winter when I can get out on the roads. Have only had it for a week or so, getting 22 mpg in city driving.
Appearance, style, handling. Did I say how great it looks?
A remote trunk release would be nice. Perhaps a larger fuel tank. Not really that much is needed.
