    This 2011 Kia Sportage is worth more because it includes ESC, bluetooth, USB port and Sirius. People complain when carmakers don't include certain items in price packages for new vehicles, but, then they're going to complain when they do include them and actually charge the consumer for them? Come on-buy what you like, and have them include what you want, grab your new world order cars, shut up, and drive. Kia just keeps getting better and better with each and every passing model year. Simply it is truth.

    granted it's sticker, but the test car had a price of $29,990--for a vehicle that's been a mainstay of the under-$20,000 crossover market. Other than ESC, bluetooth, USB, and Sirius are maybe a few hundred if you were to go aftermarket. Is ESC worth $9.7K? I'd say that's reason to be a little shocked.

    As nice as Kia has become, I still feel the prices are a bit' further out there than they should be. Of course, that is my opinion but I would not pay any where near 30 grand for this vehicle much less over 30... I don't care if it's got a gold plated usb port. I'm glad to see Kia improving, albeit with Hyundai's help but it seems they are forgetting about the demographic that got them where they are today. I guess it's natural progression to try and marginalize on your volume after you get good but I guess we'll have to see what market forces dictate.
