See the Benefits of the 2020 Kia Sportage

The 2020 Kia Sportage gets fewer MPG than the 2019 Nissan Rogue does, with 23 city/30 highway MPG in its base LX trim, vs. The 2019 Rogue’s 26 city/33 highway in its base S trim, but the Sportage overcomes that with far superior engine power and towing ability. Take for starters the 2020 Kia Sportage’s peak performance which is 240 horsepower in its top-line SX Turbo trim, vs. the 2019 Rogue’s 170 HP across all of its trims.

Then consider the towing discrepancy, as the 2019 Rogue can tow a little more than 1,000 lbs. with a 1,102-lb. towing capacity, while the 2020 Sportage nearly doubles the towing power at a maximum 2,000 pounds so you can move more items at one time, and with ease. In addition, the 2020 Sportage has an 8-inch touchscreen in all trims so you can easily choose what songs to play or get navigation directions, while the 2019 Rogue’s screen tops out at 7 inches. And if you like knowing your vehicle is covered for a good long while, check out the 2020 Sportage’s industry-leading 10-year or 100,000-mile limited warranty, which easily outlasts the 2019 Rogue’s 5-year or 60,000-mile limited warranty coverage. Some other benefits of the 2020 Sportage: It comes with 60.1 cubic feet in back for cargo, and handles like a sedan, with a butter-smooth 34.8-foot turning circle.
