  2. Kia Sportage Is Ugly Korean Trash 26 April, 2020 at 18:27 Reply

    For everyone wondering why the UK's manufacturing has been in decline every month for the last 12 months, this HIDEOUS, badly-designed mess is the reason. More & more morons are choosing this vile-looking mess that is made in South Korea using Korean & Chinese parts, instead of a good-looking, well-designed vehicle that is built in the UK (Nissan Qashqai) or a European vehicle that uses British parts (most European vehicles). These clueless, gullible morons are slowly destroying the UK's manufacturing and economy.

    Can someone explain why the Kia Sportage is the only vehicle I repeatedly see on UK roads at dusk or dark with the front lights fully on and the rear lights off. Even when it is totally dark, I see no rear lights on. Not every Sportage, but quite a lot of them – maybe 5 or 6 in every 10. This is a dangerous design fault and needs to be looked into.

    Behold: The most HIDEOUS-looking vehicle ever produced. Why would anyone buy this mess over it's competitors unless they are total morons?

    The most HIDEOUS, badly-designed car of all time. Kia steal technology from the West, then spout lies and gimmicks to entice gullible morons to buy their terrible awful cars. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs in the UK go on the scrap heap because of the morons that buy these vile things. TOTAL MORONS

    Don't buy this car!
    I did- and I regret it.
    It's all OLD Renault running gear, engine and gearbox.
    The MPG is thru the floor!! (25mpg average on a 1.6 petrol)
    It's built well on the interior, and looks good on the exterior) but that's not enough for me to warrant keeping it.
    I'm changing to the SEAT alternative.

    what about petrol buyers no one reviews the petrol version you say most will buy diesel because of better fuel economy. but you fail to mention they not suited for the school run and short journeys which is what most people use the car for we are not all sales reps

    The headlights makes me think of a frog. 🙂 But this is well made with us drivers in mind, much better than the Jeep compass in reliability and power plus the available options as standard.

    I got this car used from a dealer with only 13000km. It is a great car, cheap, very practical. In Australia, we get 7 years Unlimited KM.

    Thank you! Great video as always. You forgot to tell us ur final verdict like u usually do, should we avoid it, consider it, short list it or buy it?

    The car sounds great when revved. In motoring terms, It sings to you. I don't understand why somebody whose job is a car reviewer complains about it. Review bikes in that case.

    Just rented this for 3 days…the 1.6 petrol..35 the engine is completely gutless…around the lake's it was hopeless dangerous to try and overtake up a small berlingo van is a lot more powerful

    This is one pretty looking little SUVin real life, very smoth and balanced lines, remembers me of a certain old Bmw 325 in terms of design balance. Practical too. I have a 2016 Sonata (Hyundai-Kia.. not really distant companies) and the climate control only allows three combinations of vents, while the way the buttons are designed in Kia, it allows all combinations of 1, 2 or 3 vents at once. Nicely done, you can see Kia engineers actually do their work and not just Facebook during work hours.

    Great Review. Last week we had chance to test drive 2019 Kia Sportage. Find out, if it is better

    Can you please clarify which year you are reviewing? Mat is driving a 15 plate but the video says its a 2018 model? I've seen this descrepency on a lot of your ideals and it's very confusing and detracts from otherwise trustworthy and enjoyable reviews

    Hi Mat, as always I love watching your reviews which are well peresented and witty, but why are there no reviews for Subaru (i.e. Subaru XV). Thanks for the videos

    I love your reviews and rely on them to be accurate. Can you explain why a review of a 2018 car has 65 reg plates on it? You mention that android auto isn't available on the Sportage but it clearly is as of 2017 onwards. Bit confused!
