2018 Kia Sportage EX AWD Review
EVGrimsby 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 Review
RedGuru3S6DV says:
Looks like a compact, feels totally lux. Great finishes and amazing pickup. Handling is great, but when you pop it into Sport mode, it really kicks. The interior is roomy and you cant beat the pano sunroof. I just purchased the SX version...and its really beautiful - in and out. I cant imagine what else it needs. Its a grown up car with plenty of spunk.

"Its very responsive. "
Family Car Ranked 2020 Jeep Compass better.
"In truth, theyre on par with each other...the review just made me pick one. Maybe the fact that Id be less upset with the Compass interior getting destroyed by little ones? I have a teenager....hes respectful of my gorgeous Sportage interior."
