2009 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


We're looking for a family size car with decent fuel efficiency under 20K. We've checked RAV4, CR-V, Mazda 5, Santa Fe, Rondo, & Sportage. After the test driving, knocked off RAV4, Rondo & Mazda 5. CR-V not chosen simply because we've owned Honda & wanted to make a change + price. Santa Fe looked good but fuel efficiency was somewhat disappointing. This sportage gave us smooth ride, enough power (family of 4), and it was quite spacious for all 4 passengers. The 2nd row seat has three reclining options which are great to our kids during a long ride. On top of that, Kia's 3K incentive made it impossible to find some other alternatives. Purchased around 13K w/ Cash for clunkers.

Best Features

- Safety features (air bags, curtains ..., ranked as top). - Space - Flat folding 2nd row seat + reclining - all the standard features (hard to find what is missing) - Warranty + platinum (if purchased): no extra cost for 10 yrs except maintenance

Worst Features

- Arm rest for drivers - Head rest angle - Cup holders in the middle (equipped for Ex)
