The Kia Sportage, well what can I say ? This vehicle has the grunt of a Range Rover but at a very affordable price!
I have had this vehicle for 18 months and put it through all sorts of terrains, Sea, Rivers, Sand , Mud and normal Condtions. The Sportage handled all situations with guts and ease.
Being a sports boat owner I use my Kia to tow the boat taking it from county to county, country to country and again in all situation the Kia pulls as if there is nothing there.
The Kia's petrol consumption is good in all environments whether round town, or long distance, the Kia always gives you 265 miles per tank regardless.
Being aimed at the consumer who wants great value at an affordable price, the Kia comes with a considerable amount of extras that you would normally expect to pay extra for.
These include:-
Air Conditioning.
Alloy Wheels.
Spare Wheel cover.
Electric windows all round.

For an additional charge, you can have fitted:-
Tow bar.
Side steps.
Front Bull Bar.
Stainless Steel rear Wheel cover.

Overall, I consider the Kia to be an absolute bargain.
Its a dream to drive and its affordable to most pockets.
