2012 Kia Sportage is one stylish (both exterior & interior) modern affordable compact SUV fitted with better practical plus better conservative than 2011 Kia Sportage the previous model. We particularly liked its powerful higher trim & efficient powertrains, multitude high-technology features, intuitional UVOâ€™s hands-free controls, and fun-to-drive experience. Complaints summaries from some automotive press, such as: less energetic base engines, a bit stiff-legged ride, than other crossover cars it has small cargo space, and poor rear visibility. The five-seat Kia Sportage 2012 brings up four models: base Sportage, LX, EX, and SX for the lethal level.
