Perfect SUV for SUV fans that need an efficient small SUV

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I changed from a larger SUV to the Kia Sportage, which is a smaller SUV and could not be happier. It is the perfect SUV for me now that kids are gone and I don't need to haul a lot of stuff. However, it still has enough storage for my needs. I love the AWD and FWD capabilities. Especially living in an area that gets a lot of inclement weather. The interior features are very impressive, such as the hands free cell phone ability. Which puts your cell phone through the cars speakers, so you can have a conversation while still having both hands and both eyes on the wheel. The car also has individual heating and Air Conditioning controls in the back seats. It also has multiple power plugs for cell phones, laptops, tablets and misc. The exterior is quite attractive. Mine is Black which I think looks great. It has great power for a 4 cylinder SUV. I would have never known it was a 4 cylinder engine. Not to mention the savings on fuel, which is much less expensive than a 6 or 8 cylinder SUV. Another feature is the indicator light alerting of me about low tire pressure.

Smooth Riding - The Comfort of a Kia Sportage.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I really like the 2016 Kia Sportage. For the interior, front seats are comfortable with adjustable lumbar, height, and lean support. In the center is an arm rest that is also a storage unit. The stereo system can play CD's, radio, Bluetooth connectability and satellite if you choose to purchase. There is plenty of room in the back for passengers and plenty of trunk storage. If I lay the back seats down I can even fit bikes in the car for outdoor adventures. Treading is awesome. When you are driving the car feels really smooth, like it is gliding, especially over bumps or potholes. Overall I am very satisfied with my vehicle and would recommend it to anyone.

The Kia is a reliable vehicle offering ample room and decent gas mileage.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

We purchased our Kia after owning mostly Honda's over the years. We decided to purchase because of the similarity to the Honda CR-V and because of the price. I like driving the Kia, it runs smooth and has a lot of cargo space. I miss my front wheel drive especially in PA winters. Overall, it is a good reliable vehicle that offers about 23 mpg in the city and 28 or better on the highway.

- Jean C

Just keeps going with no issues and has 100k miles but still operates like new.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I have never had any problems. It is been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. Just keep maintenance up to date and she drives like a dream. The seats are comfortable and have warmers in front seats. Plenty of legroom. Back seats lay down completely for transporting large items. I would purchase a Sportage again when car shopping in the future.

Kia 2016 good for just a mommy car and a family car

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I have non as of now. I love the way it drive and it's just right for my family. It is reliability and it is very nice looking and good on gas. I love the look and how much room that's inside and outside. I have 2 kids and it work well with my growing kids no one is kicking my seat and all in the front when they rally in the back

- Crystal C

The seats have the option to be heated or cooled.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

My vehicle runs smoothly. It has leather seats that have both air conditioned and heated capabilities. The back seat is rather spacious so when we travel with 4 people it is comfortable. The front seats are very form fitting and are comfortable. I have had no issues with the vehicle mechanically and I enjoy driving it.

- Robin F

Amazing, the best car I've ever owned!

2016 Kia Sportage LX

It rides smoothly, hardly uses any gas, doesn't take much money to fill up the tank 100% either! I love that the -driver- seat can be pumped up or down although I do wish the passenger seat could do that same. It also has a backup camera which comes in handy when you can't see, or even to check your blind spots .

- Melissa C

An interesting detail about my vehicle is that the interior is black.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

My vehicle is very good it drives smooth it warns me when I need to change something or when tires are low it is comfortable for me and my kids has a lot of space and I can tote some heavy things by letting the seats down. The gas is real good and I like that the interior is black.

- Tina H

Like it but might not buy again

2016 Kia Sportage LX

Car electronics seem dated for a 2016 I've seen 09's with newer tech. No power seats, No turbo AWD model. Paint job is black cherry but you can only see red when the car is wet and in direct sunlight. Paint job finish looks like it was buffed with 80 grit sandpaper

- Thomas D

Kia Sportage! I would go for it!

2016 Kia Sportage LX

The Kia Sportage is an economy sized SUV. A 2 row vehicle that seats 5. Perfect for people transitioning from a car to an SUV. The gas mileage is amazing! I love the Bluetooth feature as well as the Sirius radio. I also love the built in cup holders in the doors.

- Courtney C

The space it has been a compact SUV

2016 Kia Sportage LX

No problems so far, it is very economic on gas and it is a very comfortable compact SUV has lots of space and gadgets that makes my ride enjoyable. Perfect and economic for road trips. Me and my daughter have the most fun when we go on a road trip. Love my car.

- Patria N

Kia Sportage: Great Lakes- lowlights.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I dislike the lights. It is very hard to see no matter if you have them on high or low beam lights. I added led lights and it is still hard to see. I also dislike how the lighting is in the inside of the vehicle as well. Other than the lighting I enjoy the car.

- Heather T

Had my Kia for 3 years-will definitely buy another!

2016 Kia Sportage LX

Do not care for uvo. Great gas mileage, folding back seats provide tons of room, performance is good, great pickup on freeways. Comfortable, can see all around vehicle. Oil changes are not expensive. Love the black exterior color and black cloth interior.

- Jeanie B

Perfect size for our family!

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I love my car, the only thing I don't like is the running board. It is too big for such a small SUV. I am short so when I get out of the car it rubs my calves. If it's been raining I get mud on my clothes or legs. Everything else I absolutely love it!!

- April C

It has a secret compartment in the back.

2016 Kia Sportage LX

I love the Bluetooth to be able to connect my phone to listen to music, being able to move the driver seat up so I can be a little taller. It's a comfortable ride. I love how you can pull down the seats. It has helped me moving three different times.
