When it comes to the types of vehicles most drivers have these days, you’d be hard-pressed to find a lot of joy in what’s being driven. With automotive manufacturers striving to balance seemingly-exclusive factors like comfort, speed, safety, capability and agility, the result of blending them together is what happens when you mix a palette of paint together – a sludgy gray mess of nothingness. Luckily, the Kia Sportage is here to save drivers with its infectiously-fun and optimistic personality. When you see the 2020 Kia Sportage, you see a vehicle that is both sophisticated and outgoing – a vehicle that doesn’t submit to the false axiom that you can’t have a fun or exciting crossover.
For 2020, this is not just evident in the updated style, which sees the compact crossover adopt a decidedly-sporty look, but also the features that carry Kia’s signature value across four compelling trim levels. Let’s see how they stack up:

The 2020 Kia Sportage is a vehicle that seems to just “get” the segment. It’s outgoing and sporty on the outside, easily mistaken for a luxury off-road SUV. On the inside, however, it’s composed and sophisticated, bringing drivers standard features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, active safety features and an immersive sound system.
Beyond all of this, the Kia Sportage’s unique style is an invigorating dose of fresh personality and levity for a segment of vehicles that has built itself up to be perfectly content with lackluster performance. The 2020 Kia Sportage goes beyond all of them to prove that it’s possible to love the vehicle you drive, even one as practical as the 2020 Kia Sportage.
