Used Kia Sportage 2010 - 2016 review

Used Kia Sportage 10 -16
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Sportage 4x4?

The Nissan Qashqai is perhaps the most obvious rival to the Sportage; it's the car that for some time defined this class. That's not surprising; it's practical, has a classy interior, a comfortable ride, excellent refinement and low running costs. It's good to drive too. A question mark does hang over the reliability and build quality of the second-generation cars, though.

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a classy act, too. The first-generation car sold by the bucketload, thanks to its practical, spacious and, above all, smart interior. It's good to drive, has plenty of kit and has an excellent reputation for reliability.
