Thinking about getting the new 2020 Kia Sportage? Its affordable price, spacious interior, and extensive warranty have brought it to the top of many consumers’ research lists, but there are other factors to consider. thecarconnection.com – a reputable review and research site – gives the 2020 Kia Sportage a 5 out of 10 for performance and features. It should be no surprise, we believe the new 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is a far better choice.
When it comes to under-the-hood performance, the 2020 Kia Sportage comes standard with a 2.4-liter inline-four engine that pushes 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

Plus, the Tiguan boasts performance-oriented German Engineering and modern styling.
The 2020 Kia Sportage also loses the battle of cargo space. The Sportage gets a total of 60.1 cu. ft. You can get more cargo space with the VW Tiguan; it has a total of 65.7 cu. ft.
The new 2020 Kia Sportage also falls short compared to the 2019 Volkswagen warranty. A 5-year/60,000-mile warranty backs the new Sportage; the Tiguan gets a transferable 6-year/72,00-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
