Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The Kia Sportage remains a good choice for buyers looking for a small crossover with good design and a lot of equipment. It successfully marries a premium look with a well-packaged interior and efficient powertrains. That's why it's been a great success for Kia and remains a solid pick in the competitive -- and growing -- segment.

What's New for 2015

Changes to the Sportage for 2015 include Kia's UVO voice recognition system becoming a separate option from the LX Popular Package. On SX models, new black inserts are included on the 18-inch wheels, and keyless entry and start, power folding mirrors and navigation are now standard.

Choosing Your Kia Sportage

Buyers can opt for one of three trim levels, and there are some serious differences to consider:

Kia Sportage


The Sportage LX starts off with a 182-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth handsfree, privacy glass, remote keyless entry and a telescopic steering wheel. All-wheel drive is available, as is UVO eServices, a backup camera and automatic headlights. The Popular Package includes the features mentioned above, as well as a rear spoiler, roof rails, body-color side mirrors with turn indicators, rear center armrest and dual lighted vanity mirrors.

Kia Sportage


The EX trims adds more comfort and convenience features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, UVO eServices, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED turn signals, upgraded dampers, roof rails, a rear spoiler, fog lights and chrome exterior trim. All-wheel drive is available. The Premium Package includes leather upholstery, power folding side mirrors, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and start, ventilated front seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, backup sensors and a navigation system.

Kia Sportage


The sporty SX trim gets a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 260 horsepower. It also includes features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust, LED accent lights and a unique grille, power-folding side mirrors, keyless entry and start and a navigation system. All-wheel drive is available. The SX Luxury Package bundles leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a panoramic sunroof.

CarsDirect Tip

The SX is quick, but it quickly gets expensive, too. The more moderately priced EX gets you a lot of features and the Premium Package is well worth the price -- you'll get a loaded compact crossover for around $30,000.
