Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The handsome, capable 2019 Kia Sportage does many things well; gas mileage isn’t one of them.

Pros
Distinctive styling
Great ride and handling
Optional turbo power
Quality feel inside
Stellar infotainment

Cons
Lousy fuel economy
Styling not for everyone
So-so visibility
Limited configurability

For 2019, the Sportage loses the previously available Technology package.Some features have been shuffled from optional to standard.

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

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

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Kia Sportage ranked #3 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Kia Sportage has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Spacious, upscale cabin
Smooth ride and agile handling
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Subpar fuel economy
Many rivals have more cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The Kia XCeed has a higher ride height, a range of cheap-to-run engines and lots of kit as standard. There are more comfortable SUVs with better rear space, though.

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Good range of engines
Well equipped as standard

Cons
Bumpy in town
So-so digital dials
Limited back-seat space

By: 
carwow.co.uk

On the styling front, Kia has done a fairly good job.Despite what the cladding may suggest, the XCeed is still front-wheel drive only. it’s a Ceed hatch that has been raised by 44mm to create an almost-crossover. We say almost, because Kia already sells the Sportage as a crossover and the Sorento as a full-size SUV.

Pros
Better looking than a Merc GLA and comparatively much cheaper

Cons
Do you really need a coupé-ified crossover hatchback on stilts?

By: 
topgear.com

If the design, ergonomics and credible dynamics of the most recent Ceed demonstrate that Kia should now be considered alongside any other European maker of mass-market hatchbacks, then the Xceed is the derivative perfectly tailored to the current tastes of European buyers.

Pros
More satisfying to drive than the class average, with good steering
Attractive appearance gives the Xceed a good measure of personality

Cons
Low-speed ride exhibits hard edges, despite the raised ride height
Expensive compared with some rival cars
