2012 Kia Sportage EX Review
Audi-esque 4-banger — I like the car and plan on keeping it for it few more years... or at least until I can afford the Lexus I want. It's a really nice looking car. If it drove like it looked, it would be unmatched. That's not to say the drivability is bad; it is about average. I really think you get much for what you pay for; though I would say Nissan tops Kia now in that department.
Pros: Great looking car, lots of amenities, great bang for buck
Cons: Smallish interior; large blind spots; needs more safety features

Don't Love, Don't Hate...

If You're Looking For A Little Suv, I Think You'll Like The Sportage.
It's a great vehicle for the money. I get about 21 mpg around town. We have not taken it out on a long trip as yet. There is plenty of leg room in the back seat. The back seats fold down easy to make... Read More

Pretty Good Car On A Budget But Get The Warrantee, As It Will Eventually Have Issues!
The low mpg was a surprise to me (I didn't do my research) as I was expecting 25-30mpg from a newer 4 cylinder engine but this only gives me 18 on a good average day! Add to that a small transmission... Read More
