It's Like A Baby Suv With Quite A Bit Of Room And Better Gas Mileage — I like the compac suv crossover feel. Drives great handles the road well , brakes well and great on gas. 6 speed clutch is easy to master feels a little sporty like the name says. I came out of Driving C class Mercedes a little spoiled with a quiet smooth riding car but I have to say still not a bad ride and the price on this used vehicle was terrific

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economical,runs well,nice looking

Cons: 2wd is only ok in snow

Don't Love, Don't Hate... — I think I have a bad taste in my mouth about these vehicles because the first one I purchased was a lemon. It was purchased back by the dealer and that's how I acquired this one. It's okay, but it's not great. It rattles in 3 different places and a lot of the finishes feel "plasticy." I won't be purchasing another Kia in the future.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The style is great...  Love the panoramic sunroof and heated/cooled seats.

Cons: My car rattles and creaks like crazy.  I feel like I'm driving a very "plasticy" car.. All in all, I have been very disappointed.

Prepared To Be Shocked — The build quality shocked me for the make. brilliant miles to the gallon for the size of the car. This must be the best looking crossover on the road today. stylish lines daytime running LED lights makes this car a head turner.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: If it had a BMW badge on it i would of paid £20k more for the level of trim.

Cons: dials dim when full beem is turned on

Best Suv To Own — was surprised to see the Sportage at the top of most "cute ute" lists, but after driving one I was just surprised at what a great car it is. With many not knowing what is under this hood, it is fun shocking those next to you when this turbo kicks in and away you go. Another great aspect is the gas mileage. On a weekend trip I recorded 30mpg on the highway. Avg so far is 26.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sharp styling inside and out; more fun to drive than other crossovers; plenty of premium features; intuitive controls.

Cons: I do not want to sell, but my situation.

I loved my 2006 Sportage, so I bought this second Sportage used in 2014. This vehicle has all the modern bells and whistles (Bluetooth, voice recognition, satellite radio option, auxiliary cable, etc.)
