Customers have complained a little about this car, meaning there is a long way to go for Kia. Since it is available as either a Sedan or a Hatchback, it is definitely a good family car.

There is a slight disadvantage as it can be blown away by the wind on a highway. There are suggestions that Kia should add a mode between the normal and sporty for easier driving in high-speed traffic.
