    My car

    This is the best small 4x4 I have driven. I liked it so much, I ended up buying it.

    I've only had it for a couple of days... so my rating will probably change the more I get used to the vehicle.

    My car

    I test-drove this car in Jan 2005 and placed an order the same day, we were that impressed.

    We went for the 2.0 16v XS and got a good deal, paying a little over £15K with mats, paint protection and a full tank of fuel all thrown in.

    Both myself and my wife are caravanners and have used the car to tow with no problem and would recommend this car to anyone looking to tow with it as the ride is perfect either hitched up or not.

    Basically, with what you get for the price, the car has to be one of the best-value cars you can get. I wouldn't bother paying £30K+ for an X5 or Disco even though I can afford it.

    I think Kia has got this car 100% right.

    My car

    I have driven two models of this particular vehicle, the 2.0 16v petrol and the 2.0 diesel with an auto gearbox. Since test-driving these vehciles, we have now placed an order for the 2.0 16v XS model.

    The ride seemed a little hard but not too hard, the road and wind noise were almost silent while driving both an motorway speeds and running around town. The diesel was a little sluggish with the auto box and that's why we went for the petrol.

    The cabin was excellently finished off and even the base model XE comes with loads of equipment, air-con, etc.

    It appears to be value for money at £15k.
