2020 Kia Sportage vs. Its Competition

2020 Kia Sportage
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Compact crossovers are ver popular, and as such, every mainstream brand has at least one.

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 are by far the strongest sellers, and the latter is redesigned for 2019 while the former packs style, comfort, and tons of space.

The Sportage shares a platform and powertrain with the Hyundai Tucson, which is aimed toward even more value-conscious buyers.

Mazda’s stylish CX-5 is a sharp handler and a strong competitor for those looking beyond the top sellers.

Subaru’s popular Forester is spacious but not stylish.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Kia Sportage is refreshed, stylish, and competitive as ever, though its fuel economy is poor.
The 2019 Honda CR-V rewards owners with fantastic utility and great safety scores.
The 2019 Hyundai Tucson hot-swaps one of its 4-cylinder engines, and ups its safety game.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 sates solo drivers with good handling and tasteful lines, but bigger families will want to move up in size.
The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.
With a dollop of refinement, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 would be a solid home run.
