The Kia Sportage 2013 ex awd is a real masterpiece for the value.
What I got, for mid-20's price, is an awd vechicle with a lockable differential (not avail w/CR-V or CX-5), along with 176HP and 6 speeds (not avail w/RAV-4), along with a boatload of extras. And nice extras like: satellite radio, back-up camera, cooling glove box (for soda's), all weather mats, cargo storage cover, roof rails, on-board juke box (uvo), led lights, and much more.
And if you're worried about craftsmenship, don't - because it's got a 10year, 100,000mile drivetrain warranty.
Add to that the mileage I get, on ave 25mpg, and the sporty feel, and nice ride - it's a winner in my book. Yeah!
safety specs, all wheel drive with lockable differential, uvo system, nice exterior look, gas mileage, confortable ride, led lights, nice rims, big wheels, overall quality, interior space
additional use of softer materials inside of vechicle, make led running lights standard on all models, knobby-er tire option for snow, place to mount more running lights, factory nudge bar
