    My car

    Ok I'll keep it short and sweet. The interior is simply amazing. No car of this price range can match it. The Bluetooth and voice control actually works and recognises my Geordie accent no bother at all. The steering wheel chrome trim looks very bold and impressive. The small engine is surprisingly nippy and tax free. MPG is to be envious of achieving 60mpg combined easily if I'm good, and 48mpg combined if I'm in a real hurry. Holds the road beautifully. Small tyres make it fab in the bad weather. 5dr practicality but keeping its good looks is a plus. Incredible warranty. Holds its money well. Great low insurance. Bad bits next. Never managed to achieve 67.3mpg kia figures. Stereo is not loud enough when using Bluetooth but good using cd or aux usb cable. Bluetooth reads names surname first if you own an iPhone. Overall a very impressive, efficient, spacious, nippy, little pretty car!
