The 2011 Sportage has come far from it's predecessors. I am a middle school administrator, and each morning, one of my students is dropped off by a parent driving one of the early Sportages. I look past that older one to my brand new one sitting in the parking lot, and I can't believe they wear the same label. I drove an '06 for three years and only got rid of it because my lease was up. I bought a high mileage accord because I didn't want a payment, but after a year and a half, I decided it was time for something new. I checked out the Soul but decided it was too small. I saw the new designs for the Sportage last spring and decided it was worth the wait.
Everything! The panoramic sunroofs are great, the sound system is amazing, and it is fun to drive.
