2017 Kia Sportage Expert Rundown Review

Looking for a small crossover SUV with both style and versatility? The 2017 Kia Sportage might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

[BRYN MACKINNON: ] I'm Bryn MacKinnon and this is an Edmunds expert rundown of the 2017 Kia Sportage. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Sportage looks a bit odd to some of us from the front, kind of like its nose got chopped off by a meat cleaver. [MUSIC PLAYING] We've heard the dreaded Subaru benign Tribeca comparison, too, but from the side and the back, the Sportage redeems itself with taut proportions and a generally upscale vibe. On the road, we've been impressed by the Sportage's agreeable ride and although the optional turbo engine isn't that fast by the numbers, it does add a useful helping of low-end torque for quick stoplight getaways. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Sportage is also athletic around corners and laudably quiet at highway speeds. It's a pleasure to drive, though the fuel economy is less enjoyable. Inside the Sportage, you'll find a remarkably spacious back seat for a small crossover. You could put a couple six-footers back there without a second thought. [MUSIC PLAYING] Moving to the front compartment, the Sportage's dashboard has a modern look and it's canted toward the driver with logically arrayed and easy-to-use controls-- not much to complain about here. The fuel economy numbers might give you pause, but otherwise, the bottom line is that Kia's got a winner with the new Sportage. The good news for you is that this segment is full of appealing options, including the all new Honda CRV, the Mazda CX-5, and the Toyota RAV4. But don't sleep on the Sportage-- it's got a lot going for it. For more Edmunds expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe. [MUSIC PLAYING]
