We've been driving our 2019 Kia Sportage EX AWD for almost 22,000km and we're ready to hand the keys back to Kia Canada. How has this long-term compact crossover fared? We go over all the maintenance, repairs, and problems we had during our extended time with this vehicle.
After spending nearly 6 months with this 2019 Kia Sportage EX we've come to know it quite well. We spent almost 22,000km driving this compact crossover throughout the streets of Montréal and the highways of Québec, with a mini road trip through upstate New York. This long-term test vehicle gave us the opportunity to see what life would be like with a crossover like this, and if it held up as well as Kia's warranty does.
This Sportage was used as a daily driver, with mostly highway driving done on it. In this episode of TestDrive Garage we discuss what service and maintenance was done on this car during the 22,000km test, and if we had any problems or issues with the car during our time with it. We also talk about our thoughts on this vehicle after spending so much time with it, including the likes and dislikes about it that we omitted from our episode of TestDrive Spotlight earlier on.
We wrap up with some thoughts on what you can expect if you're in the market for a compact crossover and are thinking about considering the Kia Sportage as your next daily driver.
