          Now I’m told my25 kia sportage gts does not have accustic glass, yet other brands do , I understand 30th addition korea had it, anyone know why it’s not included ,is it that hev is quiet anyway ?.

          Two weeks in my Sportage HEV, Micky, And I have to say it’s as quiet as a nunnery at midnight!!  While I agree with @kezo regarding the attributes of acoustic glass, the Sportage is still a quiet and comfortable drive. We will just have to wait another 3 years to compare!!

            Drive sensibly it’s no different to any mainstream car, it’s only when the engine is called for at higher rev’s they becomes quite vocal. Hyundai also improved the sound insulation around the wheels arches and firewall, which I believe Kia has also done (read somewhere) on the 25 Sportage. Acoustic glass has just added an extra layer of hush, however unlike EV’s its only the windscreen a front passengers side windows that are acoustic.

            What is good on these cars is, you won’t be wanting for additional factory options seen with other brands, as everthing is included, including @rse cooler’s, which if you have never had them are a god send in warm weather.

                                      Sounds like he knows more than all the dealerships put together within the UK.

                                      heres hoping we get our cars soon been 3 weeks since I got the shipping email and dealer knows fff all.

                                        You can track the names vehicle carriers Kia use, that are in port or are scheduled to arrive on x date to immigram with realtive ease. However, knowing what and who’s cars are actually on the ship is anyone’s guess and something only Kia can tell you.

                                                Any time now, Micky, and you’ll be getting the call to arrange pick up. Nearly 3 weeks in and the silly grin is still there.  Especially as I’ve now ceramic coated the car, what a huge difference, it just doesn’t stop gleaming. Mind you, it nearly killed me doing it, but so worthwhile.

                                                Hope you get the call soon.

                                                      My dealer used Diamond Brite nano ceramic finish to our car before collection, twisted his arm to do it before placing order. Would recommend it.
