2017 Kia Sportage vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2017 Nissan Rogue

You want a vehicle that handles like a sedan but can do the dirty work when needed, like hauling a boat or fitting dorm room necessities in back. In other words, you're looking for a small SUV crossover like the 2017 Kia Sportage, 2017 Toyota RAV4 or 2017 Nissan Rogue. We'll compare their performance, towing power and other features so you have a better idea which is the one for you.

The 2017 Kia Sportage is a redesign that has been turning heads since day one on the lot, with a wider and more powerful stance that is enhanced by the new headlight placement and more streamlined look for a bold, new-look vehicle. Available colors like Burnished Copper and Hyper Red ensure your crossover will really pop. But that's only the beginning, as the 2017 Sportage tows up to 2,000 pounds, twice what the 2017 Rogue can and 33 percent more than the 2017 RAV4's 1,500-pound capacity. This is in part because the 2017 Sportage has the most peak power by a large margin, thanks to a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that has a heady 240 HP, which kicks the 2017 Rogue's 170 HP and the 2017 RAV4's 176 HP to the curb.

So far we've seen the 2017 Kia Sportage has the edge in towing power and engine performance, which will make it easier to merge into highway lanes or to go on camping trips with the additional towing ability, but the 2017 Sportage crossover also is built for safety for you and your passengers, with available Autonomous Emergency Braking which stops when you aren't able to, and other features like headlights with Dynamic Bending Light (DBL) tech that can "see" around corners and make turns easier, especially after dark. Neither the 2017 RAV4 nor the 2017 Rogue has Autonomous Emergency Braking or DBLs.

When you add up the benefits of the 2017 Kia Sportage in towing, safety and performance, plus its sedan-like fuel economy at 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and its nice handling, we have a clear winner in the small SUV class and we carry it at Airport Kia, 3325 Westview Drive in Naples, FL.
