The folks at CarMagazine.co.uk pose the question is the Kia Sportage the SUV of 2022? Then they promptly give it a 3/5 score. I’m going with “no, it isn’t the SUV of 2022”.
There’s no mistaking that the Sportage is now appealingly upmarket in its appearance, powertrain, tech and perceived quality. The problem is that its price has gone up, too. You can get a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid for less than a Sportage HEV, and the Sportage PHEV makes the Ford Kuga and VW Tiguan equivalents look cheap.
