The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.4
7.6

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 Nissan Rogue offers excellent fuel economy, an upscale interior, and a smooth, but uninspired ride. The available third-row seat is too small for most buyers.
