The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once. The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan is a little conservative in look and feel, but otherwise it has everything that urban crossover shoppers want.
