When it comes to small, truck-based SUVs, this primitive model is among the worst of an unimpressive lot. With its body-on-frame construction, it isn't nearly as sophisticated as competitors like the Toyota RAV4. The Sportage's ride is stiff and jittery, and its handling is clumsy, with slow steering and lots of body lean. The overtaxed 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is crude, weak, and noisy.
