Say goodbye to the Mazda5, Say Hello to the Kia Sportage


It looks like the Mazda5 is going away this year. I drove a Mazda5 for a little while, and shortly there after I got my Kia Sportage. I like it so much better. They get the same gas mileage, but the Sportage handles so much better. The Sportage has a much nicer interior, and the technology package is amazing. I can’t live without my UVO! Sure, I lose one passenger, but that’s okay. While my youngest child get’s the most out of her “SmarTrip Metro Card” the rest of the family get to travel in style.

If you were in the market for a new Mazda5, I recommend shopping the 2016 Kia Sportage.
