Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I would recommend this car for numerous reasons. I chose a KIA out of practicality. The gas mileage is awesome. I get at least 35mpg & even with an approximate 11 gallon tank, it never feels like I’m constantly refueling. It provides a smooth & quiet drive which is a huge plus. KIA has also came a long way in regards to the overall cosmetics of their vehicles. I love the design & overall specs of this car. For once, I feel like I’m getting what I paid for! :)

Gas is excellent and it drives so smooth. The best part of the car is the sport mode. If I’m ever going on a long drive or vacation the sport mode makes the car go so fast and tight and it’s just plain fun. This is my first Kia and definitely won’t be my last.
