After a day spent with our new 2020 LX, here are some initial impressions.
1-Love the mars orange color.
2-Really needs a molding to protect paint and break up HUGE door area.
3-Kia nailed the C.V.T./I.V.T. (If you didn't know, you wouldn't know)
4-Ride quality & handling seem greatly improved.
5-In it's simplicity and function over form approach, it feels cheap in some ways.
6-Some sacrifices were penny wise-dollar foolish I.M.O..
(Grab handle, voice dialing, thin spare tire cover, hub caps)
7-Nice to see a spare back in the trunk again.
8-Dealer representation STILL seems sketchy even after so many years on the market. (Your results may vary)
If it's anything like our 2012, reliability wise, I know we will be happy.
