5 Stars out of 5 Stars - '05 Sportage glows
By JR on


2005 Kia Sportage LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


I really couldn't believe I was looking at the new Sportage when I was in the dealer showroom. After test driving the Sorento and the Sportage, I went with the Sportage because: 1 - the Sportage had no hesitation and seemed more powerful upon acceleration. 2 - I thought the Sportage handled beautifully; and 3 - better fuel consumption then its big sister. I am really glad I choose the Sportage. I love the dual exhausts, the safety features at no additional cost which includes the ABS, ESP, side curtain front and rear airbags and the 100,000 mile warranty. The interior room is awesome, and the interior silver trim is sharp. Overall I give this vehicle 5 stars out of 5 stars!

Best Features

Standard safety features, 100,000 mile warranty. Superior, smooth car-like handling, roominess.

Worst Features

Have accessories (like mudflaps, bug deflectors,etc.) available as soon as new vehicle made. With a new model, ordering some accessories can be a challenge (I still love my Sportage!).
