I purchased the car new in June 2012 and on the whole am very pleased with it. The fact of having 6 forward gears I found to be confusing at first but all you have to remember is that they are closer together in ratios than 4 geared cars. In general driving I rarely us 5th gear and can go straight from 4th to 6th and back again. I usually manage to get 46 to 48 mpg as I keep to a maximum of 65mph, over this figure the consumption goes up alarmingly. The car is both comfortable in surprisingly spacious inside with a fair amount of boot space (usually used for shopping!) So far the car has been reliable and a good value for money.
Running costs are reasonable. I have had no problems with reliability and have incurred little maintenance cost. It is very spacious and carries a lot of gear when the seats are down. I bought a shelf to put over the rather deep boot space and this is recommended as it provides a good space to store shopping bags and other items as well as giving some security. It is not the most comfortable of cars - suspension is hard. It is not a high performance car but it is a good runner. I find it very practical.
This car is no speed freek but is reliable, economic, practical, good looking Reliable - NO breakdowns in 7 months Economic - returns 40 mpg on mixed runs 30 miles daily Practical - ample boot space comfortable 5 seats Good Looking - I will admit some think its a Mini on steroids but I like it
Most reliable car I have ever owned. Fuel economy good, not excellent, but good High driving position suits me (and not only because it let's me think I'm driving a Range Rover!) Small boot - OK for touring for 2 persons, but no more I'll be getting another, I expect, when I change.
Another excellent car from the Kia range I am now on my 3rd KIA as is my wife .very comfortable car to drive the high seat position gives excellent all round visibility and it is so easy to get in and out of . The 7 year warranty and prepaid service plan make it good value for money.
Practical mid sized car, plenty of room in the cabin, boot area a little small. Engine slightly underpowered especially when loaded. Good vision. Not as economical as I would like, but I do tend to make several short journeys(5 miles or less a week).
A reliable practical vehicle, a little under powered when fully loaded. Would be much more practical if the back seat was removable or folded flat. A little thirsty in this day and age.
probably best car ive owned so far and ive had a fair few inc. audi subaru volkswagen. very smoothe, comfy, refined car. looking forward to getting similar for next car.
The space in the boot is slightly limited and I have trouble fitting in my husband's collapsible wheelchair - otherwise we love the car
comfortable roomy & reasonably economical pleasant to drive interesting styling which is part of the appeal bonus of 7 year warranty
A very hard ride that makes you feel all the bumps and ridges. Holds the road well on corners and has good boot space. Very reliable.
I would highly recomend this car. It's a smooth drive and very spacious inside without being too big as in a four by four.
A great car well appointed excellent access good visibility
Lovely little car to run
