I’m not an expert, but an owner. I never ever have owned a Kia before this one, and to be honest, I was very suspicious about Kia's car, but we were in the market for find the best SUV that we could afford. After a lot of searching, we found this 2014 Kia sportage with 13k miles for only 20k, and I gave myself the opportunity to check it out in person. I'm not regretting after 3k miles. If you don’t have money to spend on fancy car, the Sportage is the way to go. Best small SUV out there for money vs quality. Kia put together a nice package at a very good price which is why I bought the EX model with the premium package. The sportage is not as roomy inside, and is not a gas saver car as other SUV’s but if you are looking for an SUV with a turn head and sporty good look, a great pick up, fully load, comfortable, real smooth to drive and inexpensive, then you must to check the sportage, it is a car that gives you greater value for the money than any other car out there without cutting down on quality, functionality and reliability, plus, the warranty offered by Kia. But nothing is perfect, so I want to point out something that displeases me, it is that there is no good visibility through the rear window of the car, when you use the rear view mirror found inside the car on the windshield, to see something in the rear view mirror there has to be perfect angle between the mirror, your eye sight and back window; instead that, you would like to use your side view mirrors while you are driving and a back up camera when you go forward. Anyway this is not a big issue, just something to point.

I really regret buying this car. Its not good on gas. not comfortable and rattles like old car. Cant believe the way it drives. Its like a matchbox.its 4 cyl but it use gas than my old big truck. Seats are so rough making my drive uncomfortable. I have a loan on it but I have to swallow bitter pill of paying for it. Its not worth the amount because most of the car its fiberglass. don't recommend someone to buy that car. lok for other models.

love the style of the 2014 body! It looks mean! The rims are so up to date. So roomy inside. The only improvements I see that could be made are the material the inside door panels are made of, easy to scratch, and too much road noise. Would love to have one just like the 2014 w/o road noise!

I rented the base model Sportage for a 1600 mi road trip and was able to see how the vehicle performs in many driving conditions. The seats are comfortable, there's plenty of room, and my overall driving experience was good. The car handles well at speed on the highway, gets decent gas mileage ( averaged 28.3 on the highway doing 70-75mph ) Road noise was also on the low end of moderate ( probably more in favor of good tires then vehicle sound dampening ) Some flaws I noticed was viewing angle out of the rear view mirror. For some reason, no matter my seating position, I was always looking down, out of the back of the car. This isn't bad around town, but on the open road you can't see whats behind you until the cars begin to get close. I'm 5,10 and could see this being an even bigger problem with tall people. The engine lacks in power around 60mph. I noticed quite a few times I would have to floor it to get up a small hill and maintain anything above 55mph. The A/C vents in the back don't really push any air. Even at max fan-speed you can barely feel the air in the back. The car handled gravel roads and ditches pretty well. A bit stiff for off-road but it was manageable. All in all it's a decent car, but lacks in some simple areas.

Love my new KIA sportage. Every day I discover something new. The speech command is great for making basic calls and radio choices. Pressing your Siri button will do everything else! The light accents around the cup holders and other items are just cool. Speed is great - excellent pickup and great turn radius. On top of all the it has cool led light on the front and back ... But the best part... I'm 6'3" and after getting everything just right I still had room to push the seat back. Plus it just feels great to drive - feels solid.

Got a great deal on a 2014. Many luxury features - seat warmer, back-up cam, phone synch, etc. Torn between this and an Escape. This is slightly smaller, but more manageable to park. A little more "bounce" when driving, but overall a great ride. can't beat the safety features and warranty, that's for sure! Highly recommend.
