It's only been 4 days since I bought the vehicle, but this review might help anyone who is looking to buy an entry level SUV. When buying, the brands I considered were RAV4, CR-V, Santa Fe. The good thing about getting a Kia is the ability to negotiate a suitable price. Honda and Toyota's are a little too stubborn to do so. But really, the vehicle has an awesome build quality and drivability. I was surprised by the quality of the vehicle, especially comparing it to the previous Sportage. I highly recommend anyone to take an informed decision, if you're buying a Rav4 or C-RV just test drive the new Sportage! That's exactly what happened to me!
1) The interior fit and finish. 2) The height of the vehicle. 3) Build, bulk and design.
Fuel economy although good, can be a little better though!
