2005 Kia Sportage EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


This vehicle is a huge improvement over the original Sportage. Fit and finish is superb, and the suspension is tight as a drum. The highway ride is smoother than many of the larger so- called "luxury" cars I've tried. Cornering is effortless, with none of the "about to roll-over" feeling from the bigger SUVs. Interior room is astonishing; even big folks are comfortable in the back seat. The 6 Cyl engine is peppy, if a little less than economical (so far I am getting 19 MPG combined, but it's still a new engine). The 6-speaker CD sound system is worth the price of admission, with amazing bass response.

Best Features

Fit and finish, engine power, CD system, interior room and comfort.

Worst Features

A little more cargo space would be nice, although for most applications it seems adequate.
