    Amazing and super spacious – looks small on the outside but is massive on the inside. Even has a 591-litre boot so lots of space, love it!👍

    So I got a Kia Sportage 2022 plug-in hybrid GT-Line delivered. Its smooth and looks nice, there are so many beeps, bongs and dings for a million things you don't need, though. I get a terrible 34-35.5mpg per tank of full and a full charge. It’s utterly terrible on fuel so if your buying to save money please don't and buy any diesel built in 2018-2020 instead. My last company car, a Vauxhall Astra estate, did an average of 59.9mpg over 48,000 miles with 74.4 a 81.8mpg on motorways - with a massive boot that was amazing for a family not these tiny boots you get on all SUVs. You can feel the change between the ev mode and combined mode constantly which is a bit irritating, you have to turn lane assistance and steering assistance off before you set off on every drive or it will steer you into drains at the side on the road and follow old line markings as well as old speed signs. It is not in any way driver focused. It would be great for people who have lots of crashes & car park incidents but i miss the Nissan Qashqai, Toyota CHR and Astra Estate i had previously. Mainly for feel, less driver interference and mpg all got well over 50mpg.
    What's the one thing you like most about your car?
    Looks
    If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
    MPG and keep gadgets fully turned off when you turn them of not reset on every journey
