Nice small car with space inside and handy features.
Very good overall vehicle. Not too big, but still has space inside. For example, I can put 8 foot lumber in it with the hatch closed (it has to go on top of the passenger seat but it works for me). I am fairly tall, so I wish it had an inch or two more leg room for the driver, but it is a minor inconvenience. The back seats are good for kids, but putting four adults in it for a long trip might be a bit of a squeeze, especially if your driver and front passenger are tall. Since I drive alone it works well for me. The back has a good amount of cargo space and the seats fold down easily to give you plenty of space for almost anything. The car is efficient; I almost always get at least 30 miles per gallon. It also handles very well. I live in an area with lots of snow and as long as I have good tires I have never had trouble controlling the vehicle. It is also small enough with a tight turning radius to navigate tight quarters. I went with a manual transmission so I do not have cruise control. That is the main thing I miss. Also the stock entertainment center works directly with my iPod (with a Kia cable and an apple branded adaptor for lightning connection) so I can listen to what I want on the road.
