I purchased a 2016 Kia Sportage and was pleasantly surprised at the handling and peppiness of the sportage. There are many vehicles that use the word "Sport" but they rarely live up to the billing. I was really impressed by the sporty ride and handling of the Sportage. I have the model before the redesign that I love (the new style not so much). I have had no problems with the vehicle and have taken it on several road trips and she held up well.The seats are comfortable for long trips. The area where the Sportage does not shine is fuel economy. If the MPG's were a little better it would be a near perfect vehicle.
not as good as has mileage. Dangerous blind spots. I love on a hill, and can barely see over the top until I almost get to the top. Have to easeout very slow. Very very dissatisfied with the remote start. It won't lock after it starts. Real big big deal. Very, very, disappointed on this feature.
