2012 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6M)

Review

After 14 years of driving small hatchback cars, I made the leap into a compact SUV. I'm a long time Hyundai owner and they never failed me, so I credited Kia with the same reliability. The interior of the sportage looks classy and sleek, even at the base model. I have the 6 speed manual and the pickup is great, you do have to hit 4-5000 rpms for max power but its got some kick. The cargo space fits my surfboard and bike so I'm set. I just had to get used to "more car" and less visibility...but now that I'm comfortable I really like it. I average 23 mph in city driving. I would recommend it to a friend hands down. Did I mention its pretty fast as well.

Favorite Features

Features, bluetooth, interior design and sporty/sleek exterior design. Pick up is good and the car handles well. The electric steering does a great job of provided a weighty feeling at speed, but the car is VERY nimble at lower speeds

Suggested Improvements

A little more cargo space and a larger back window.
