Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
That mildly surprising price tag is $58,990, which is a lot of money, especially when you can have a Toyota with a meaty V6 in the nose for that kind of cash, along with its bulletproof reputation. The difference being that the Toyota has almost nothing in it, while the GT-Line Kia has quite a bit.
For your hard-earned you will score 19-inch alloys, a 10-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, side window blinds, a substantial safety package, keyless entry and start, active cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, around-view camera, electric front seats with heating and cooling, heated second row seats, sat nav, active LED headlights, fake leather everywhere, power tailgate, heated folding power mirrors, aluminium side steps (a bit useless, I'm afraid), a heated steering wheel, sunroof and a full-size alloy spare.
The 8.0-inch touchscreen is familiar from the Stinger and features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and DAB radio. It's a reasonable system and does the job very nicely, with snappy response and a modern interface.
