Well i clocked a hundred today and apart from some niggles im happy with it Clap 
on the plus's very easy to drive, smooth through the gears, and i've accumulated a few bits and extras to put on over the next couple of days (ill post pics)


On the negatives not overly impressed with the return on the mpg at the mo (hoping it will improve) the lack of door storage space (when its such a large door!!) & whats with the tiny glove box?? and lastly the arm rest is it just the open and you have the storage or is there a small tray hidden?

bear in mind that im coming from an s-max 



** had a mare uploading this pic, do you guys not allow photobucket? **

Mpg sounds like it could be a serious issue. I would take it back to the dealer.

Figures on dash will only reflect your own driving style,especially if your car is the 1.6tgdi, as stated give it time to bed and then do an mpg on a decent runwith best results from tank to tank fillup calculation. the arm rest is annoying when forward it interferes with handbrake so only use on long runs.

Kias engines are not frugal. This is well documented. But the Sporty has to be taken as a package, I think. And it still comes out as good value. If MPG was everything to me, I would have plumped for a BMW X1. But for less money, I get a very well equipped car which is a decent all-rounder.
Just renewed the car tax which is £210.00. But I knew about this in advance!
MPG improves over time - this is also well documented!!

If people on here are that concerned about mpg figures then do your homework and get a hybrid or even go full electric then you can dribble at mpg figures. There are people on here rambling on that they have a 1.6 petrol turbo shortage and worried out mpg?! What? Even the diesel engine owners, it's heavy car and maybe not the most highly engineered engines but it is what it is people. Just enjoy it!
