The 2021 Kia Sportage is a visually attractive and sporty compact crossover, looking to make its mark in a busy segment. Placed between the larger Sorento and smaller Seltos in Kia’s showroom, this vehicle offers an impressive interior with abundant room for passengers, though its storage capacity could be improved. From the top-of-the-line model, you’ll get access to an incredibly fast turbocharged engine, with the usual array of driver aids and infotainment systems included as standard. Even if it bears similarities to its corporate sibling, the Hyundai Tucson, the Sportage shines through with its available all-wheel drive and remarkable style.

With its turbocharged engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the Sportage is one of the fastest compact crossovers around. For most buyers, the non-turbo four-cylinder engine is more than enough to meet their needs. Although the aggressive SX Turbo can turn mundane milk runs into rollicking rides, there’s not a huge difference in driving enjoyment between the engines.

Its tech features are top-notch, with only a few exceptions. We admire the user-friendly touchscreen, smartphone integration and charging options for rear and front passengers, as well as the upgraded stereo, which is among the best in the class. Navigation graphics are clean and crisp. The Sportage’s suite of driver aids works well, handling traffic without false positives or unsettling jerkiness.
