Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Bronco Sport is an all-new model that's intended to serve as a smaller alternative to the larger Bronco. Although neither Ford has been officially revealed, we've heard lots of rumors and seen a lot of spy photos. The most recent images appear to show a production-ready Bronco Sport before its official debut in April, which is expected to follow the big Bronco's reveal date.

The 2020 Kia Sportage comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Updated front and rear styling.New safety features, including adaptive cruise control.Standard 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Smooth ride quality
Spacious front and rear seating
Attractive dashboard layout with appealing features
Quiet interior at highway speeds

Cons
Fuel economy isn't as good as mpg of some top rivals
Relatively modest cargo capacity

By:

For 2020, Kia tweaks the Sportage's already bold styling and adds more standard and optional features. While the exterior revisions aren't transformative, they give the Sportage a fresher and more assertive look than the previous year. Along with a new S trim level and different wheel designs, the interior receives some new content. Upgraded leatherette seats and wireless charging are now optional. Likewise, every cabin features an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as an updated steering wheel and air-vent surrounds. The Sportage also adds more driver assists that include automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology, driver-attention warning, pedestrian detection, and lane-keeping assist.
