Back to the OP's question, I do believe KIA Sportage is value for money. People who are comparing KIA products' repute vis a vis Toyota and Honda often forget that the version of Toyotas and Hondas we have are the lowest in terms of quality of parts, which is also magically deteriorating every year. The Civics and Corollas here cannot be compared at all with their international versions. KIA in its initial years at least will have the benefit of better quality parts, that will mean a stronger more reliable car with less quality defects.
Having said that, one should also realize that perceptions, even though completely wrong, are sometimes a lot stronger than reality. So in a country where majority believes that the world is making plans 24 hours to stop Pakistan's inevitable march towards becoming a superpower, where democracy is kosher, and where Bhutto is still alive, it is highly likely that the market will continue to perceive KIA inferior to Toyota and Honda. That will result in lower resale value compared to the likes of 'masterpieces' assembled at Indus, Atlas and Pak Suzuki, no matter how much more robust and reliable Kia proves out to be.
