I have the SX Prestige model and I love my car.

I have the SX Prestige model and I love my car. I love just about everything about my car from the numerous tech feature to the huge dashboard. After two years of owning the vehicle, I’m still finding features that I never knew existed. If I had to think of two things that I hated most about this car, they would have to be the...

Purchased the car over 6 months ago. Loving it so far. Regular gas, lower insurance rates, comfort when driving 4 hours+ trips. Great gas mileage and great in the rain. No issues at all.

2024 Kia Sportage review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2024 Kia Sportage?

The Kia Sportage is a compact SUV with seating for five and a choice of a 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or two hybrid powertrains, each based on a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. The regular hybrid makes 226 hp combined, while the plug-in hybrid makes 261 hp combined and has the added bonus of 34 miles of electric-only driving range. The base engine and regular hybrid are offered with front- or all-wheel drive, but the PHEV is AWD-only. After a complete redesign for the 2023 model year, the Sportage has one of the most daring exteriors in a field of rivals that includes the Chevrolet Equinox, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Volkswagen Tiguan.

What’s New on the 2024 Kia Sportage?

After its redesign for 2023, the Kia Sportage sees only minor revisions in standard equipment for 2024. Rear airbags and LED headlights are now standard on every Sportage. 

What Features in the 2024 Kia Sportage Are Most Important?

  • Bluetooth
  • Front USB-C port
  • Six-speaker stereo
  • Forward collision warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection

  • Front parking sensors
  • Reverse automatic emergency braking
  • 360-degree camera system

Should I Buy the 2024 Kia Sportage?

The Sportage makes a very strong case for itself among compact five-seat SUVs, but the same can be said of a number of similarly well-rounded competitors in this category. The cabin is less polarizing than the exterior; the design is elegant and the trim materials are high-quality. The power and economy of the hybrid versions are impressive, but there’s no getting around the fact that the base four-cylinder quickly runs out of steam and feels unrefined. It’s a shame given how much attention has gone into the finer details of this Kia SUV.
