When it comes to getting adventure-ready capability and road-worthy performance into a vehicle that is comfortable to drive and park, compact crossovers excel. These small wonders shrink down the features for which you may choose a larger SUV into a size that is able to comfortably carry five passengers with plenty of interior amenities and features. They also have available all-wheel drive, making it easy to go places other vehicles and SUVs just can’t. Simply, they’re a great balance between small cars and big SUVs, bringing the best qualities of each.

As one of the oldest models in this fairly-young class, the Kia Sportage has seen a lot of roads and trails. In its 2019 iteration, it brings even more advanced technology, an industry-leading all-wheel-drive platform and a luxury car’s interior to the masses. Up against the 2019 Kia Sportage today is the 2019 Mazda CX-5 – the product of another brand seeking to move upmarket. Let’s see how they compare!

Comfort, Convenience and Capability Converge in the 2019 Kia Sportage

For drivers who don’t like choosing between a comfortable ride that’s easily parked in the busy downtown and an athletic trail-roamer that can take you anywhere, the Kia Sportage is clearly superior to the Mazda CX-5.

Not only does the 2019 Kia Sportage give you more available horsepower, more interior space for both passengers and stuff and more technology, but it’s also a better long-term value. After all, with the 2019 Kia Sportage, you get a bumper-to-bumper warranty that’s nearly twice as long as that offered by Mazda. With the engine/powertrain warranty, you are covered for twice as many years.

Think about how much you’ll change in a decade. You know what won’t? The amount of security you feel getting behind the wheel of a vehicle that the manufacturer still stands behind.

Best of all, with Friendly Kia’s VIP price, you’ll get the 2019 Kia Sportage at a significantly lower price than the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is available for. Test-drive the Sportage today and find out how being Friendly makes all the difference.
