Have you ever heard the Beyonce song "Upgrade U"? It's a great song, and even if you haven't heard it, the message is clear: It's always preferable to aim for the best. If you're looking for a small SUV, then that would be the 2018 Kia Sportage, a crossover that underwent a redesign and revamp in 2017 and has had drivers buzzing ever since with its bold design, improved fuel economy and added room in the back for cargo.
The 2018 Sportage continues this quality and performance, with three trims that start with a confident 181 horsepower in the base LX trim and which ramps up to 240 HP in the SX Turbo trim. This is a crossover that not only achieves 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, it also can tow more than the competition in the crossover class, with the ability to haul up to 2,000 pounds. It also can come in all-wheel drive (AWD) models for off-road action!
