The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2023 Kia Sportage grows into mid-size SUV proportions, and is loaded with standard safety and convenience features. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
