Not bad at all. Seems they went down in price in a few models...not a bad thing.

Can't wait till I see these on the road. Sucks they didn't have any open at the Toronto Autoshow. The SX they had there looked amazing though.

I was very impressed with the new Rondo. The Forte is very nice, but the Rondo is an amazing redesign when compared to the old model.

What exactly are the 'Front Positioning Lights'?
I believe its the light band below the headlights, you would have to see a 2013 and 2014 LX model on a lot to see the difference and don't have pictures yet to do that. :) These were a new feature added to the 2013 Sportage vs the 2012 model, check out the difference in that area on these two Sportage's

What? No 7 Seat on the EX model... No Navigation... No Power Tailgate...

I personally like the bottom plastic/rubber finish of the non SX models. Gives it a more "utility" look and is actually very useful as it can withstand some minor hits where paint would simply dent / scratch.

Why did they change their offering. LX = Non-Leather, EX = Leather, SX = Urban Luxury

Will have to wait and see at the dealer...

Thanks for posting this... helped me choose between this and the 2014 Outlander. Ultimately, decided to stick with a Kia.

Interesting...the rear liftgate looks different than others i've seen. Others i've seen have the regular shocks/cylindrs and an extra one that opens and closes the rear door. This has two larger cylindrs that look like they do all the work. Saw something like that when researching adding an auto liftgate to my 2012. I wonder if it cn be retrofitted.

The nav/screen looks much larger too.

According to Kia the 2014 has been restructured in the rear to make it more rigid than the 2012 & 13. This allows for the power liftgate option.
