The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Kia Sportage offers good looks, a quality interior, and the fun of available turbocharged power, but it is small inside and it's falling behind in safety ratings. The 2016 Hyundai Tucson caters to drivers that put styling and features at the top of their crossover-SUV wish list.
