PROS
Standard all-wheel drive delivers secure handling and wet-weather traction
The cabin is quiet, comfortable and surprisingly roomy for a compact car

Available manual transmission for those who want to row their own gears

CONS

The 2018 Subaru Impreza offers all-wheel drive for all of us in a comfortable, refined, tech-savvy package.

Comfortable, quiet ride
Polished handling, especially in Sport trim
Roomy hatchback option
Lots of safety and convenience tech

There’s a lot to like about the sharp-handling, attractive 2018 Kia Sportage, even if its fuel economy doesn’t impress.

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

The 2018 Kia Sportage ranked #4 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Kia Sportage has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Premium interior
Two rows of spacious seats
Agile handling and smooth ride
Excellent warranty and predicted reliability rating

Cons
Unimpressive engines
Below-average fuel economy
Smaller cargo hold than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

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.
