Great for City, No Gas Saver When Traveling
By Dieguex on


2005 Kia Sportage LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this 5 speed manual model because most of the time I am driving in the city, great performance, handling, brakes etc. But when traveling the gas economy is very low, especially if you go between 55-80MPH, because the 5 speed is too short, the engine runs at 4K RPM when you are around 75 mph. That means no more than 24 MPG, same at the city. The rest is great.

Best Features

All in general, sound system, stability, 4 cylinder engine is very powerful, interior-exterior quality is great, best city car.

Worst Features

Better 5th speed ratio, too short!
