Kia Sportage vs. Ford Edge

  • Looking for a capable, family-oriented SUV that's ready for everything you throw at it for years to come? Kia Sportage is backed by a ten-year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty. The delicate Ford Edge only offers you a five-year, 60-000-mile warranty - nearly half that offered by Kia Sportage.
  • Kia Sportage features an available sunroof that lets sunlight in and dreams out on every family adventure. A choice for Ford Edge is a choice toward the boring - no sunroof is available on any trim level.
  • Looking to save money on gas? You can in Kia Sportage, whose city, highway, and combined MPG ratings each best that of which you'll find in Ford Edge.
  • Kia Sportage doesn't simply offer you a more comfortable, efficient experience with longer durability - it's also considerably more affordable. Kia Sportage's starting MSRP of $26K is nearly half that of Ford Edge, which starts at $41K.










 

Kia Sportage vs. Nissan Murano

  • Nissan Murano is no match for Kia Sportage in the warranty department. Instead of the five-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty with five years of Roadside Assistance you'll get with Kia Sportage, Nissan Murano only offers three-years, 36,000-miles of basic warranty coverage.
  • Looking for park assist technology to get you closer to the restaurant? You have it in a Kia Sportage. Nissan Murano drivers, on the other hand, might be better served by a garage  -no park assist technology is offered at any trim level.
  • When the weather takes a turn for the worse, the available Dynamax fully active all-wheel drive uses electronic sensors to monitor road conditions, and then, for enhanced traction and control, instantly distributes power to the appropriate wheels. You won't find such a dynamic all-wheel drive system on Nissan Murano.
  • Kia Sportage is packed with the brand's elite array of advanced safety systems like Lane Departure Warning. A camera mounted on the windshield senses your lane and warns you when you sway due to drowsy driving or recklessness. It's not just a great way to stay safe; it makes Kia Sportage a great car for families with younger drivers.

Kia Sportage vs. Toyota RAV4

The 2018 Kia Sportage and the Toyota RAV4 are both popular compact SUVs in the Manassas area. Both have available all-wheel drive, both seat five people and have four doors, and both have the elevated position of an SUV that drivers love. But, the Kia comes out ahead of the Toyota in a few key areas, such as:

  • The jumping off point for pricing these two models may be similar, but, the Kia Sportage is actually a little more budget-friendly than the Toyota RAV4. While the Kia entry-level model typically goes for less than 24,000 dollars, the Toyota SUV is closer to 25,000 dollars starting out.
  • The Kia warranty is legendary, and the Toyota warranty doesn't even come close to offering the same peace of mind. In fact, the Kia SUV is backed for a remarkable 5 years or 60,000 basic coverage, and 10 years or 100,000 miles for the drivetrain. Meanwhile, the Toyota RAV4 has basic coverage for just 3 years or 36,000 miles, and drivetrain coverage for only 5 years or 60,000 miles.
  • The Toyota RAV4 offers just one engine for its entire lineup, while the Kia Sportage has two. Not only that, but the sole Toyota engine is only rated for 176 horsepower, which isn't as powerful as either Kia powertrain. The Kia Sportage can be powered by either a 181-horsepower four-cylinder or a 240-horsepower four-cylinder, both of which rate higher than the Toyota's four-cylinder.
