We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

2022 Kia Sportage spy photos

The next-generation 2022 Kia Sportage mid-size SUV has made its European prototyping debut, ahead of a rumoured unveiling in April 2021. The example spotted by our spy photography partners on Germany's Nurburgring racetrack – used by manufacturers to develop vehicle handling and driving dynamics – wears considerably less camouflage than previous Sportage prototypes spied in their home market of South Korea in recent months...

2018 Kia Sportage SLi (FWD) review

The Kia Sportage is a handsome, reliable and well-thought-out car. We picked up our new Kia after having 11-and-a-half months of absolute pain and horror with our Haval H6 Lux. It was love at first sight when we picked up our new Kia: the presentation of the vehicle, quality of the build, and smooth handling helped form an instant bond with this car...

2012 Kia Sportage SLi (AWD) review

I purchased the Sportage in late 2011 to replace my very unreliable (after warranty expiration) 2006 Ford Focus. Living on a dirt road that often has minor flooding, I needed something with a little more ground clearance. Of all the available SUVs at the time in my $30–35K price range, the Sportage in my eyes was the best-looking creature by far...

2016 Kia Sportage GT-line (AWD) Review

Having had the Sportage for a few weeks I am, so far, very impressed with the value for money it offers. The long list of features on the Platinum series has impressed everybody who has seen the vehicle. The safety features are particularly impressive and the quality of the finish is a testament to Kia's commitment to bringing good value to buyers...

2016 Kia Sportage Platinum (AWD) Review

Terrific SUV! The Platinum version's interior comfort compares easily to that of an Audi or BMW. All option buttons are clearly laid out and well lit at night without over-dazzling you. A big disappointment, however, is there is no CD player or hard drive for your music. Although Bluetooth can stream music from your phone, it can be hit and miss getting it to connect...
