My First Crossover

Strictly a car guy, I just got my first Crossover!

Traded in my '12 Ford Focus (cool car, but hated the tranny) and picked up this Kia Sportage.

Peppy and looks cool, but will take some getting use to the size. I think this will end up way more versatile then the Ford, plus easier for my Dad to get in and out of when I take him places. Since my SLK is silver (you can see it in the background) ....I went with the silver theme!

Kia have come on leaps and bounds over these last few years.

I don't think the pic you posted is its most flattering angle, but when I see them on the road they really do look modern and impressive to my eyes.
