2018 Kia SUVs: Kia Soul vs. Kia Sportage vs. Kia Sorento

Kia SUVs and crossovers provide sweet handling, fine design and power that will make the drive experience exhilarating! We'll look at the three new Kia crossovers and SUVs for the 2018 model year, and see if we can help you find the one that works best for you!

The 2018 Kia Sportage returns with a carryover from 2017, with solid fuel economy at 26 combined MPG that when paired with its sleek design and versatility such as its 2,000-pound towing power, makes for a formidable small SUV. The 2018 Kia Soul is a fun-loving, utterly unique boxy crossover, with a new engine option that debuted in the 2017 model year, with a turbo-powered 201-HP beast for the top trim level, the Exclaim. Pair that with its spacious interior for such a low price (MSRP of around $16,000) and you have a vehicle that can satisfy anyone.
