Love it!

Comfy seats, roomy enough for 7 but can stow away the 3rd row when not needed. Great gas mileage. The only thing I dislike is the fact that the driver seat isn’t a power seat. (I’m short so I have a hard time reaching the bar to adjust the seat forward after my hubby drives it)

Practical SUV

I love this car. It's the perfect size for my needs- hiking, work-related travel and hauling stuff from one place to another. The back seats aren't super crammed and they are easy to lift and lower. With the third row down, there's lots of trunk space.

Love this SUV!

We were looking for a good highway car with AWD for our retirement road trips. We've already recommended it to friends. It's extremely quiet on the highway, gets 21 mpg city, 33 mpg highway (we have the V6 engine), has lots of back seat room for adult passengers, and lots of rear cargo space. Many more pluses too, with no real drawbacks found so far.


  • Cabin Noise: Quietest car we've ever owned. Friends comment on it too. Easy to have conversation on the highway.
  • Power: V6 engine has good pickup with plenty of highway power.
  • Reliability: Kia's reliability and high ratings were deciding factors in our choice. We had owned Hondas since 1982.
