2019 Kia Sportage in Tampa Bay, Florida

2019 Kia Sportage driving on rocky desert terrain

The compact crossover class is perhaps the greatest testament to the perseverance of automotive manufacturers. After all, while it might have been easy for them to fall back on a cliché like “You can’t have your cake and eat it too,” they worked to create a segment of vehicles that seamlessly blends the handling and efficiency of a car with the ride height, safety and cargo carrying abilities of an SUV. It’s a marvel and no wonder that they have become one of the most popular classes in the North American automotive market.

With a fun and easygoing personality, award-winning reliability ratings and Kia’s industry-leading warranty, the Kia Sportage is a hallmark compact crossover. It bucks the trend of competitors who are content to be simply pragmatic, offering drivers a playful ride with an interior that is focused on providing maximum comfort and a top experience for drivers and passengers alike. For 2019, the Sportage gets even better.

With seven exterior color options, several appearance packages and a funky take on a joylessly-designed class, the Kia Sportage is a unique player in a crowded room. Featuring distinct edges, a wide signature grille and sweeping contours, the Sportage sits somewhere between crossover and sports car. Inside, a standard touchscreen infotainment system makes joy the interior theme.
