Although a lot of the Kia lineup has been replaced, dropped, or otherwise changed, the Kia Sportage is one of the longest-running models for the automaker. Since before many young drivers were born, the Kia Sportage has been capturing the hearts of small families, young drivers, and students because of its cargo space and many interior features.
The 2021 Kia Sportage Benefits from a recent facelift and the automaker’s tenacious push to include more safety and interior technology than other automakers without driving the price up.

The Kia Sportage isn’t just a great fit because it is one of the most popular vehicle types on the road, the Sportage also offers plenty of features not normally available in its class, and even makes many of them standard. The Sportage is far from the only Kia out there, but many will chose it over the Seltos or Soul for more space. The Sorento is an attractive alternative, but the Sportage will still draw in many buyers due to its price point. In the end, the question isn’t “is the Kia Sportage right for me,” it is “why didn’t I chose the Kia Sportage sooner?”
