Under the hood of the new Kia Sportage, you'll find a 2.4-liter I-4 engine that produces 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, and when you compare that to the much lower 164 horses under the hood of the equally priced Tucson, you'll find that the Sportage is not only more powerful, but more fun to drive. The size and weight of each vehicle come out to be about the same, but the distinctly modern exteiror of the Sportage looks both rugged and refined at the same time.
