Kia makes a better BMW and charges less for it.

Pros
Gutsy optional V-6 engine,
flashy exterior styling,
big-time bang for the buck.

Cons
Nervous handling at the edge of its envelope,
won't satisfy badge snobs,
less than posh interior.

A few high-end features trickle down to the new mid-range SEL Plus model for 2020. Previously only available on the top-spec Ultimate, the SEL Plus comes with a 4.2-inch color display located between the two analog gauges and a wireless charging pad for smartphones. The auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink is now standard on both the Limited and Ultimate models as well as a new orange interior accent kit that automatically is added to either trim if the Sunset Orange or Ultra Black exterior colors are chosen.

Pros
Standout styling, punchy turbo four, packed with features.

Cons
Tight cargo space, numb steering.
