2019 kia sportage vs 2019 gmc terrain comparison image

Small crossovers bridge the gap between the all-weather, multi-terrain performance we expect out of a large SUV and the convenience and value we expect from a small car. This has made the class extremely competitive and packed with models from manufacturers like Toyota, Honda and Kia all the way up to supercar manufacturers like Lamborghini. If there was an “automotive class” stock market, you would have wanted to invest in this segment back when it launched in the early 2000s, when there were only a few small crossovers on the market.

One of those early models was the Kia Sportage. Having undergone significant upgrades from generation to generation, the Kia Sportage is now better than ever in its 2019 iteration. With plenty of standard technology, an interior that looks like it was plucked from a luxury vehicle and a range of performance options, the 2019 Kia Sportage is a small SUV with enormous potential. Going up against the Sportage today is the 2019 GMC Terrain. Let’s see how they compare!
