Hello All,

I rather like our new Sportage, I did a lot of homework and decided the time was right to switch to Kia after being a Honda/Nissan man for years.
It's a 61 plate Sat-Nav 1.7 CRDi and I'm frankly amazed at how it compares performance wise with my old Civic 2.2 diesel - plus my bum keeps warm!!






Thanks

Mark

You may believe it's black - but it's gun metal, the first I've seen round these here parts! I'm going on a blast down the M6 on Monday, so should see a difference (a nice one I hope) in fuel use compared to my Civic. Mind you, Iregularly got 48 mpg in it, so I'll be happy if my Sportage equals it, or betters it.

Unfortunately it won't be better than that.

Exactly the same as mine. Excellent taste! My MPG is around 45 but when worked out manually it's around 38. Daily 8 mile commute in fairly slow motorway traffic plus the odd longer motorway trip and usual weekend shopping etc.
