Thinking about a new compact crossover? Check out our new Kia Sportage and see how it stacks up to the competition!

Compact crossovers have practically supplanted sedans and SUVs as some of the most popular cars on the road today. However, if you're starting to explore your compact car options here in the greater Atlanta area, you may find a dizzying array of options out there. But while it may seem hard to know where to start, we might just have a humble suggestion that'll be perfect for you here at Rick Case Kia : The new Kia Sportage.

This stylish, sophisticated, yet eminently capable new compact crossover has been a fan favorite of drivers from Duluth to Norcross, GA for years now, and with a slew of recent updates, it's more attractive than ever before. That being said, the Kia Sportage is not without its competition. So, if you'd like to fully explore your compact crossover options before committing to just one, we've prepared a brief competitive comparison to show you how the new Kia Sportage measures up.

The Kia Sportage vs. The Jeep Compass

Renowned for its ruggedness, the Jeep Compass is a close rival of the Kia Sportage, but how will these two fare when pitted against each other?

  • If you're looking for a more affordable option, you'll be happy to learn that the Kia Sportage has a lower starting MSRP than the Jeep Compass. The Kia Sportage starts at $23,750 MSRP, while the Jeep Compass rings in higher at $24,845 MSRP.
  • Spend a lot of time driving in nearby Atlanta? Well, the Jeep Compass may be suited for countryside driving, but when it comes to EPA-estimated city fuel economy, the Kia Sportage is markedly more efficient.
  • Looking for a more exciting driving experience? The Kia Sportage has more base horsepower than the Jeep Compass, allowing you pass cars on the highway with confidence.
  • If you're like many drivers from nearby Johns Creek, GA, then long-term reliability is of the utmost importance. Happily, with the Kia brand's 10-year / 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, you'll get that reliability you crave with the new Kia Sportage. Unfortunately for Jeep Compass owners, their powertrain limited warranty only runs up to 5 years or 60,000 miles.

The Kia Sportage vs. The Nissan Rogue

Nissan and Kia have always vied for the top spot in the crossover market, but does their Rogue match up to the new Kia Sportage?

  • Much like the Jeep Compass before it, the Nissan Rogue comes in quite a bit pricier than the Kia Sportage, making it a no-go for value-conscious car shoppers from nearby Lawrenceville, GA.
  • Love a nighttime drive? Then you're sure to appreciate the available Dynamic Bending Lights available with the new Kia Sportage, which orient themselves to illuminate around corners and light your pathway. Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue features no such comparable features.
  • The Nissan Rogue is no doubt dynamic, but it's much less powerful than the new Kia Sportage. With up to 181 horsepower available standard, the Kia Sportage leaves the 170 standard horsepower of the new Nissan Rogue in the dust.
  • Planning a road trip with friends? With more second row headroom than the Nissan Rogue, your passengers will be much more comfortable on long drives in the new Kia Sportage.
