About Kia Sportage

For 2016 the Kia Sportage remains one of the most stylish and feature-rich compact-crossover SUVs one can buy. Up against the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and even the new Hyundai Tucson, Kia's 2016 Sportage compact-crossover SUV plays in an increasingly crowded field. All of these competitors offer more interior room, better fuel economy and a smoother ride than the Sportage, so Kia's little SUV has to emphasize its strong points, namely its available 260-horsepower turbocharged engine and sleek exterior styling. Although it offers a bit more horsepower than the Subaru Forester XT, the Sportage is no match for the Subaru's impressive combination of fuel economy, handling and interior accommodations. Then again, the Sportage's styling is superior to the Forester, as is its 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

"Got a used 2014 Sportage with 32000 miles on it. However, it looks and feels almost brand new. Real smooth to drive. Love almost everything about it and it looks absolutely unlike anything on the roads. I feel safe and comfortable in it. The dashboard and centre console is neat and meaningful which is a really big thing for me. I absolutely despise the busy fussy curvy dashboards. Minimal, clearly marked and neatly laid out buttons you push and rotate are what is needed when you are driving. Also love the sound system - its unlike any other car of a similar price range that I have seen. The car feels precise, and a bit sporty. You get an awesome steering feedback, but have to live with a stiff suspension. Seating height is very good and to my liking, though the front seats lack lumbar support. Rear seating space is really good - lots of leg room and head room and a flat floor. Lots of clean cargo space too and the cargo floor is at a perfect height from the ground. Greenhouse is pretty good with great front visibility, but the A-pillars could have been thinner. You have to crane your neck to lookout for an incoming car when taking a left curve on winding roads. I didn't have any issues with rear visibility though - instead I think that curved rear is one of the best looking parts of this car. I'm getting around 20mpg in city. No issues with the car yet. Braking and handling is all to my liking. My only complaint is that it somehow lacks the punch when pressed up from an idling state of 60-75mph. Seems like it went to sleep and I have to press real hard to wake it up out of slumber when it downshifts and accelerates. It may be a driving behaviour thing or a thing with the automatic transmission, but it sometimes makes me less confident while changing to higher speed lanes. That being said, it quickly gathers speed in the 40-60 range, and also feels pretty capable beyond 75. Additionally, the idle engine noise is pretty high for my liking and it only gets higher when accelerating from zero. Feels like i've turned on a truck. The noise can even be heard inside the cabin and does feel uncomfortable having experienced other cars with pretty silent cabins. Inspite of a few negative things that I pointed out, it is a car that gives you greater value for money than any other car out there without cutting down on quality, functionality and reliability. Love it. Its a neat little fun, reliable and meaningful car."

"I'm in love with my 2011 Kia Sportage EX Premium. If you asked me a year ago, I would have told you that I would never drive a Kia. I love everything about it. The styling, handling, features, warranty, etc. The bluetooth is great and easy to use, love the streaming audio, push button start, and especially the panoramic moonroof."
