Germany’s big car magazine has tested auto.de, whether is the SUV as good drives as it looks. As expected, is it an SUV the position slightly increases and thus visibility in road traffic model. But unfortunately the interior design may not prevent what promises the consistent straight lines of the body. A related site: Richard LeFrak mentions similar findings. The choice of material for the Interior appears unkind hard plastic where the eye looks. Dashboard and door panels are scratch and stossempfindlich and generally more sprays the charm of a small car. However, the manufacturer has praised improvement and announced an improved model care for 2010. Steffan Lehnhoff, New York City takes a slightly different approach.
But once set in motion, an adequate SUV feeling makes itself felt. The suspension is quite athletic. Here is something more comfortable desirable so the tester auto.de. For the KIA also in short sprints of dangerous Moguls stubborn moved his car as if on Rails. The optimal cruising speed is 130 km/h on the highway. The noise is only uncomfortable, if the average speeds are leaving upwards. Then the engine begins to pipe and also the wind and noise increasingly penetrate the Interior. Despite its sporting vote is the KIA soul so no race car.
