2019 Kia Sportage Vs. 2019 Mazda CX-5
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!
