2018 Kia Sportage EX AWD Review
says:
Owned this vehicle for about 6 months and then traded it for a 2018 Ford Escape. Lacking in too many necessities. My first major disappointment - NO SPARE TIRE, just a can of sealant and a small compressor. Not very helpful if you have a highway blow-out. Secondly despite to-days reasonable cost, safety technology is sadly lacking. No blind spot monitoring, no rear audible alarm, etc. etc.

2018 Kia Sportage EX AWD Review
says:
Is a good vehicle if you want more cargo space and just AWD. However I didn’t feel like this vehicle had as much interior space or leg room for the driver and front seat passenger. Also felt like I was up in the windshield when I drove it.
