Was quickly wanting to get to the kia website to look at something and typed in kia uk in Google was shocked to see listing for the New kia sportage 2012 under the main site. Dont pick mine up till next week please tell they have not released an updated version already and they have only changed the date from 2011 ?

I picked mine up on the 28th Jan 2012, and
it's the same as 2011, I say that there is a good 5 years without changes also
it's one of the best desirable cars all over <?: prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on">Europe</st1:place>
at the moment,so Kia is on to a winner this baby sells it's self.

Sunglass holder in the roof

<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />
Sort the handbook descriptions / English out


Make all the switch gear / buttons illuminate


Do something with the centre console storage rather than it just being a big hole


Add some more 'hidden from sight' storage for sat nav's, wallets, keys etc



Where possible, make all the aboveavailable to fit the models already out there

Something I don't understand is that heated steering wheel is not available in the nordic/north-europe countries. Iv seen Canadian people have stated that they got it, but hey, we got -20C now and im freezing off my fingers ;)

How about having the 2.0 petrol turbo engine then? Now that would be nice.

Change the feeble horn.
Make the rear seat heater switches turn off like the front ones do!!!

Have to agree the horn is a bit naff - think the 2.0l donk is fine though and certainly flies along !

Good to see KCS are taking an active interest.
My wish list:-
· As everyone else has said, change that poor excuse of a horn.
· Lights on all the buttons, door & roof. (need a light to find the map light)
· Center console lighting where the i-Pod/USB panel is ""“ can't see anything at night ""“ maybe a downwash light a la Mini which is located in the rear view mirror.
· Rear seat heating that resets.
· A better Sat Nav unit ""“ say Pioneer with Telemaps which has free TMC & safety camera data base as well as lots of other features.
· Fold Flat rear seats.
· Brighter turn lights.
· Proper recessed stowage for a Fire Extinguisher ""“ mine is kept were the spare wheel is ""“ not readily accessible but is not in the way of the luggage.
· And maybe as an option, a Webasto heater would be really nice to combat the cold in the age of global warming.
· But please do not change the exterior styling, if anything twin pipes as the Sportage SX in the US market.

It's obviously the button that turns the front ceiling lights on when the front doors are open.

Yours must be broken... mine turns them off.

Wing mirrors that fold away when you lock the car and unfold when you unlock it.

Better horn!

Illuminated door switches!

More realistic MPG in your advertising brochures........
