The 2015 Kia Sportage is the last model year of the current platform, which will be replaced by an all-new model for 2016, sharing its underpinnings with its corporate cousin, the Hyundai Tucson. But that doesn’t mean there’s necessarily anything wrong with the current Sportage. Introduced in 2011, the current model’s styling is still sharp and distinctive for the compact-crossover class, and an available 260hp 2.0L gasoline-direct-injection (GDI) turbo gives the Sportage ample power. While the current Sportage is stylish and fun to drive, its noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) characteristics make it one of the noisier entries in the class. The Sportage is available with a number of comfort and convenience options, including a heated and ventilated driver seat, navigation, and Bluetooth streaming audio, but recent updates to class leaders such as the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V put the current Sportage mid-pack in terms of features. If you’re a bargain hunter, expect special offers on the outgoing ’15 models to make room for the ’16 Sportage coming later in the year.
