The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Kia hits game reset, and gives the 2011 Sportage an appealing new look and feel. The 2011 Outlander Sport is a pleasant, nimble, and versatile runabout for the city, but road noise and a sluggish powertrain make it a less-than-ideal pick if you do a lot of highway driving.
