Kia Sportage 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Sportage 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What car is big enough to sleep in the back of?

    It's hard to give you a definite recommendation, as most cargo measurements are in litres rather than floor length, but I reckon most mid-size wagons and large SUVs would do the job for you. 

    Most of these have a flat boot floor with the seats folded, and likely have ample body length for sleeping. 

    So Mazda6, Skoda Superb or Ford Mondeo wagons are worth a look, plus large SUVs like the Mazda CX-9, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe

    Don't be afraid to try them out for size at the dealers either. You'd certainly test out a mattress before buying right?!

  • Kia Sportage or Subaru XV?

    Both would be well suited on the basis of what you have told us. The top Sportage is more expensive than the top XV, but it’s more economical, the service intervals are a little longer, and it comes with a 7-year warranty compared to the XV’s 3-year deal. If you planned to keep the car for a number of years I would suggest the Sportage is the better choice, but if you turn your cars over regularly I would probably go for the XV.

  • What's the best family SUV to buy?

    As you say, the choice is bewildering. All the models you have been looking would be suitable; you could also look at the Nissan X-Trail. I would go for either the Mazda CX-5 or the Kia Sportage, but that's not to say the others aren't worth considering. Why don't you go shopping and check each of them out to see how they fit your needs.

  • What midsize SUV has good fuel economy?

    All of them would be good choices, but I would prefer the Mazda CX-5 or the Kia Sportage. Either would be fine.
