The Kia Sportage won outright in 2016, and we still think it should be a frontrunner if you’re considering a medium SUV. We love its distinctive design, and the way that the Sportage drives with real verve, attacking corners with almost no body roll and responsive steering. Spacious and comfortable inside, it has a smart dashboard design, intuitive infotainment system and clear navigation. Popularity and a great reputation for reliability has boosted residual values, and there is, of course, Kia’s incredible seven-year warranty to fall back on.
