The base 2.4L GDI engine has plenty of pep. The vehicle rides well fully loaded (no change in suspension, handling, acceleration, etc). I would recommend this vehicle to anybody looking for a compact SUV (who has no need for a third row of seating).
My only frustration has been the difficulty of adding fog lamps. There is no wiring harness provided from the factory. This makes it impossible to have a true factory installation integrated into the steering wheel controls. It also makes an aftermarket installation expensive, as well.
I have gone to 18 different dealers through the Bay area, most that I went to wouldn't work with me on the price I wanted to pay for the cars, or would say I they have a car on their lot and when I got their the car would magically be gone. But when I called Josh at Vacaville Kia not only did he work with me on the price of the car he had, but he also had multiples of type of cars I was looking for, and he had a couple options for me when I got there, i finally decided on a 2018 Kia Sorento. Josh got me better than what I wanted for the exact price I wanted to pay. It was worth driving 100 miles away to see a dealer who had honestly and integrity, and I have never worked with more professional and helpful person as Josh, and if more dealers we're like him I wouldnt have been so absolutely frustrated with the car buying process the past few weeks. If I ever go to buy another car I will see Josh at Vacaville Kia!
Josh, thanks for getting me into the car I truly wanted!
Loaded with extras!

Great amentities, lots of extras, has pep, stylish, sporty. Love the lights! Nice leather color interior. Cargo small but adequate. Appreciate the foldable mirrors, heated steering wheel and seats.
This is a top notch company. I contacted them about a used car they had on their lot which I had found online. I had to travel two hours to get to the dealership and when I called about the car I talked to Jeff Perkins who answered all my questions, was very easy to contact when I called back with a question, and when he knew I was serious about the buying the car and I was worried that someone else would buy it out from under me before I could get there, he assured me that he would not let that happen.
The car is an older car but was clean and like new -- and before we drove it away he had it further cleaned up. I feel like I have a new car and I love it. I could not have asked for better service and I would buy again from this dealer and Jeff without hesitation.
I had had an accident in my previous car and I think I was still sort of in shock. But I trusted these people and my trust was not misplaced. They came through for me 100%. I also dealt with their financial person, Victor, who was incredibly easy and enjoyable to deal with. The whole process was smooth and trouble free. They felt like family.
Thank you, Jeff and Kia of Vacaville. You are rare treasures!
Two hours later when we arrived at the dealership he came out to meet us and walked us to the car. I could tell that the car had been lovingly cared for and detailed by the dealership. It was exactly the car I had been looking for but had been unable to find anywhere else. I felt the price was very reasonable.
From truck to car

This car is making my transformation from my truck, and I’ve driven a pick up for about forty years, easier than I thought it would be.
I’m older, 68, and grandkids made me do it!
All wheel drive with four wheel drive priced right!
My sales gal, Rachel at JoeFirment and her I-workers in Anon Ohio made this fun!
I loved the no hassle and great price on warranties. I would recommend CarMax to everyone.
Super impressed with this car!

The 2018 Kia Sportage I purchased is beautify designed and well built. The Brushed Copper finish catches your eye immediately. The car condition was clean and had all the features I was looking for...... All for a very reasonable price. For me it was pretty much love at first sight.
I had a slow leak in my tire. They found a nail in it and repaired guickly, effciently and it didn't cost me "an arm and a leg".
Happy with my purchase

Was reluctant to purchase a Kia, but after driving it I am very pleased with the handling of the car, the interior is comfortable and roomy and purchasing regular gas has put more money in my pocket. Love My Kia
Vallejo Toyota was great. Not only did the find the exact car I was looking for they gave me a fair price. Nataly Diaz did a great job. Would come back and even tell my friends to come all this way to get a car.
Handles very well. Good for all ages.

Exactly what you’d want/ need in a car. It’s my second Kia. Great gas mileage and it’s a good looking vehicle. I’m very happy with it.
Ryan Macoy went above and beyond to make our dream come true. He treated us with dignity and respect. He did everything possible to get us what we wanted with us not having the best qualifications. They treated us like family. I will drive 4 hours again and refer him to everyone I know. We will never go to anyone else. Thank you so much Ryan
Safe and reliable!

Love the car! It has plenty of room. Big trunk, lots of leg room, and the drivers seat is adjustable up and down (I’m really short so I need some height).
Long wait but was kept informed. They even washed my car!!
They just keep getting better!

This is the 3rd Kia Sportage I have had. All 3 have been the EX trim, and all have been different body styles. This current Model, the 2018 is in a world of its own. I still hear negative things about Kias from those who have never owned one. This vehicle is top notch in every way. The amenities are numerous, the ride and drive quality is beyond your expectations, and the versatility is astounding. They are simply fantastic! If you are in the small SUV market, drive everything else first, then drive the Kia Sportage. I think you’ll agree that you’ll quickly forget about the other test drives. It is simply so much more for the price than any other make with similar packages. You will not be disappointed!
