If you are looking for a great car, you really have to think about the choices that are out there. The Subaru Forester is one of the top-selling cars in the SUV market. For many years, Kia cars were not able to give the Forester a run for its money. Now, however, the 2020 Kia Sportage is poised to give the Forester some real competition. Here are some reasons why the Sportage stacks up well with the Forester in a head to head comparison.
How the Sportage and the Forester Compare
First, the Sportage has two engine options, while the Forester only has one. The base Sportage engine is comparable to the Forester engine, which means that the second engine available will deliver you more power with the Sportage than the Forester. However, the Forester manages to beat the Sportage on gas mileage.
The Sportage has a lot of other features that the Forester just can’t touch. First, the Sportage offers a 6-speed automatic transmission, which gives you more control over your speed. The driver and front-seat passenger seats are heated and ventilated, and the interior also has dual-zone climate control. This is an added touch of luxury that the Sportage is becoming known for. The interior also has an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation and smart cruise control. The Sportage has a great sound system, with clarity technology.
There are other features of the Sportage that will make you sit up and take notice. The Sportage has a fabulous panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade. The SUV also has full-time all-wheel drive, which means you do not have to figure out which setting to put your car on, it does it for you. The Sportage also has smart cruise control, that allows you to stop and go without constantly turning your cruise control off and on.
