    DRIVING:
    Few hundred kilometers
    trBought HTX 1.5 Petrol - Given this is 16L car this had to have more and i am very happy with most of the things. Below are my thoughts 1. Excellent looks of car external and internal, also lots of features like steering wheel adjustment, auto ac, many charging ports, sensors like TPMS. 2. The infotainment system is very good and the instrument cluster is superb. 3. Sunroof was added to this model was definitely and pleasant surprise since we had booked earlier. 4. Excellent driving feel and many times i cant know if the engine is even on 5. Enormous amount of space both for back seat and boot. Overall we are very happy with the car i do feel that at this price point couple feature could have been improved 1. GPS Software needs a lot of improvement. It's not reliable. Example - Lots of search does not work. when starting trip it mentions a time but over the trip its changes drastically e.g. It was showing a 35 mins (based on usually driving and traffic we know it would take about 1hr) and the GPS keeps changing the time. This is not good when we are out of town and rely on GPS heavily. 2. Voice assistant is worst i do not understand well. Also though UVO is definitely good but that also needs improvement there was a trip with a travel time of 1:10 mins but its showing 2hrs 50mins not sure why, 3. Instead of cruise control. The car could have improved safety features a little more like couple more airbag or hill assists feature. 5. When taking right turn I feel a bit difficult too see the opposite traffic due to A-pillar. Not sure maybe need a bit of practice. During test drive please try to check. Minor thing - When AC is ON, the pick up low hence when overtaking i am used to switch off AC at times. The placement of AC on/off is not easily accessibly for driver. May be this is something that i also need to change my way of driving. Most of these like GPS/Voice/UVO can be fixed via software update. I really hope KIA does this. Overall - Excellent Car and Super Happy with the Purchase and a big upgrade for me compared to my previous car, the miss are some few safety features and need software correction/update.
