We bought this car before out third daughter was born, and the back seat is wide enough that we were able to fit the carseats for our "three under three", albeit with some pushing. My 6' 4" husband is able to comfortably sit in either front seat; the leg room is great! I love the Bluetooth and the steering wheel controls. The trunk has a HUGE amount of space and is able to fit our double stroller and all of our groceries with no problem, and my bread is never smashed. :) The ride is smooth and quiet, and the interior is very comfortable. The A post is a little wide at the base and can cause a bit of a problematic blind spot for shorter drivers. I have also had an occasional problem with the display, radio, and CD player cutting off and not coming on again until the vehicle was restarted, but this has only happened two or three times since we bought this vehicle brand new. All in all, the problems we've had have been very minor.

i love the feel of this car and the handling of car is fantastic!! The car has a lot of room and the backseat is absolutely roomy for a long legged person too! It doesn't bother me , but a short person in the passenger seat in the front complained about not being able to raise the seat higher. Who cares. I love my Kia!!!! Would recommend to all
The important stuff: The car handles nicely and gets great gas mileage. It has great safety ratings. It is very spacious and comfortable. The warranty is unbeatable and the car is reliable. The extras: Stock sound system is loud and clear. Stereo is tilted toward the driver. Heated and cooled seats are perfect for any weather. Backup camera is perfectly calibrated. Panoramic sunroof makes you feel free. The car is visually stunning. On price: Feels like a luxury car but at an affordable price. Great value. What I would change: Less road noise. More visibility out of rear window.
