In the driveway this week is the 2011 Kia Sportage EX AWD. The original Kia Sportage could've been classified as a bona-fide subcompact. Although this all-new model has grown quite a bit since the Sportage's 1993 introduction, it's also evolved into quite a nice crossover.
Still compact, this Sportage EX features all-wheel drive, leather, panoramic roof, and much more. Initial impressions are that it is much nicer than I expected. Plus, I think it looks fantastic.
