Experts Rave

“It’s hard to find style and versatility in the same place, but the redesigned Kia Sportage delivers on both counts. You’ll like the number of features that Kia has packed into this small crossover, too. It’s one of our top choices for 2017. — Edmunds

“The fourth-generation Kia Sportage has an all-new look wrapping a stronger chassis festooned with more connectivity than you can shake a smart remote at.” — Autoweek

Compared to our Four Seasons 2011 Sportage EX, the new car is roomier, more comfortable, better to drive, quieter, and much more handsome inside.
