Kia Sportage Overview
The Sportage handles nimbly and has a refined powertrain. But it has a stiff ride and pronounced road noise, and acceleration is leisurely. The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder got a decent 22-mpg in our tests. The top-trim SX has a stronger, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that gets 21-mpg overall, but it has a stiffer ride because of different suspension tuning and tires. Though the sporty styling may look appealing, it compromises cargo space and impairs the view out, especially to the rear. Cabin appointments are basic but fit together well. Reliability has been above average. The Sportage scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
