Pros
Excellent Style,
Cavernous interior,
loads of tech.

Cons
Intrusive adaptive cruise,
no upgraded engine option.

The Sportage stands pat with its unmistakable front-end styling and steadfast powertrain duo for 2018. Instead of changing those, Kia has extended some of its active safety features to lower trims, upgraded several standard features, and reshuffled the contents of option packages.

Pros
Audi-like interior,
long list of features,
speedy turbo engine.

Cons
Poor fuel economy,
limited cargo space,
love-it-or-hate-it styling.
