TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Kia Sportage is nice to look at and good fun to drive when equipped with the turbo engine; it's proof that crossovers don't have to be uninteresting. The 2015 Nissan Rogue may have a small third row, but it's a better car than the previous generation in virtually every way.
