Does anyone know if the all of the engine oil can be sucked out of the dipstick tube. I presently use this method on my Picasso and would like to continue on my new Sportage. Tried asking KIA but nobody has answered the query.

Sucking doesn't drain the sump correctly on a vast majority of cars these days, and can cause sludge problems with old deposits and crud staying at base of sump, which builds up and eventually starves engine of oil.
