Combined MPG: 23 FWD / 21 AWD
Fun Factor: 8/10
Performance: 8/10 240 hp & 260 lb-ft of torque in this small package mean plenty of fun for the real driver, despite the automatic-only transmission
Practicality: 4/10 At over $33k for a small crossover that's really fun, this car is out of budget for most commuter car duties. It barely squeaks in at 21MPG combined for the AWD version.
Overall the 2017 Kia Sportage SX is a really fun car for those that have the means. Sticker shock will get you though, considering a good used vehicle with plenty of power & fun can be had for much less. Still, if you're in the market for a nice, shiny, new mini-speedster crossover, take a look at this Kia!
In the end? Drive It
