Good choice Albatross for a daily driver! What were you using before this?
I'm guessing your Base is an automatic. You must admit, it comes very well equipped for what Kia calls a "Base." Glad you didn't fall for the marketing designed to lighten your wallet
I often think when I'm driving home, air conditioned (or good heater), listening to satellite radio, changing stations with a voice command, a Starbucks in the drink holder and taking a hands free phone call now and then, that I'm driving what the salesman sadly called a "Base." You'd think from his dramatics that I just bought a car with hand crank windows, pull up door locks and non power steering. Hahahaha!!
