That the design of its predecessor and even already of the new is been awarded, is written almost like a maxim in the press release. As much as the Kia Design Center has endeavoured in California, whether European taste was hit, remains doubtful. Already Daihatsu has failed with the Materia and Nissan with the Qube.

Good bearable springing

It is of course not a SUV, as Kia claims, at most a Crossover. After all, amazing how one has brought the edged shape to a drag coefficient of at least 0.34. Too bad that with such a bow to the cube is coming out not a bit more rear headroom and especially a larger tailgate.

Nevertheless, it will considerably more attractive inside. The standard equipment is technically in terms of safety, the seats and the audio system together with the manually operated air conditioning already quite satisfactorily. Typical for cars far produced by the customers is a summary of many amenities to the Spirit equipment that costs at least 5,800 euros. Who wants, e.g, the diesel engine, has to take this equipment and pays overall 8,000 euros more.

Inside, everything is somehow round.

But if you afford the luxurious amenities, then for this class of vehicle, you come into the unusual enjoyment of heated seats, electrical adjustment, a heated steering wheel and an 8-inch, pin sharp screen with the corresponding multimedia accessories. For outside, there are still significantly wider tyres, roof rails and a lane departure warning.

Automatic only for the Diesel

Either it is a printing error, or the CO2 emissions are really increased by 20 percent for the diesel with automatic compared to the without. That is probably an indication that this is a converter automatic transmission with questionable efficiency. Advised therefore the diesel with manual transmission, a little more expensive than a Mini Countryman, but better equipped and with more performance. 04/14
