Like: 1. The ride is very smooth 2. I love 12.3-inch digital instrument panels and display quality is amazing 3. The car is loaded with all safety bells 4. The blind-spot monitoring is awesome - never had before 4. A lot of customizations for the existing safety and other features are provided - just need to learn how to do it 5. 227 horsepower is more than enough for me 6. City MPG is good Cons: 1. On the display, the visibility of the controls that are placed on the right upper side is not good (talking about 'EV active' indicator) due to smaller size of wheel and trying to adjust seat and wheel positions is not helping much 2. Switching controls to operate between AC and other features like radio is very user unfriendly due to placing touch controls very close to each other and selecting those controls during driving is very hard and potentially dangerous due to taking eyes out of road and looking down trying to press the right control. - Configuring control to be active by default can help a little but still switching between is hard 3. Freeway MPG is not that good. Still learning a lot about this car

I have had this car for about 2 weeks and already have 1500 miles on it. I leave it in eco mode and am getting the 38 MPG being light on the gas pedal. Sport mode definitely kicks it up a notch! I live in Colorado and the altitude can really impact power in the mountains. I had plenty of power to scoot up the hills on I70. The matte paint is stunning and I have gotten many compliments on it. Beware that the paint requires hand washing only and you will have to get a special soap for it. Fortunately I enjoy washing my car, so not a big deal for me. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Excellent Hybrid SUV

We love our EX Hybrid. It has an excellent interior (comfortable, spacious, and techy) and it's performance is outstanding (gas mileage, speed, handling). We tried out a few other small SUVs (CRV, Tuscon, CX-5) and this one stood out largely because of the quality and function you can get for the price tag.

A better SUV than my Acura Rdx. One problem is the back up light is horrible. There is one small, maybe 3" x 1" located in the middle of the rear bumper. Impossible to see during the day and at night not visible from the side only if you are directly behind the car. So sad that a vehicle that has so many plus has such a huge design flaw......Dangerous

What's up with the windshield...?

Once you see it - you can't unsee it. The "filament" for the front glass defroster is IN YOUR FACE. A terrible design. Hope KIA offers a replacement option. Not even a necessary option in most of the western states. Audio system is sub-par. Unfortunately there's no KIA "Quantum Sound" option for the top-level (Prestige) trim, so if high-end audio is your thing, you won't get it here. No Homelink mirror included in the top trim (you have to pay extra) which is ludicrous. Averaging 29-32 mpg HWY, which is so-so. Car rides nice, looks nice. Handles well. Technology is abundant. Be certain to review KIA's ACTUAL warranty - don't fall for the exaggerated 10-year hyperbole. You only get 1-year bumper-to-bumper.
