Each year, Autotrader’s editorial experts selects vehicles that they think drivers should take the time to test drive before making their ultimate decision. In order to be recognized, the vehicle must be the current or next-year model. It must be available for purchase at the time of the awards announcement with a starting price under $75,000. The vehicles chosen did not score lower than 3.5 on Autotrader’s five-point scale.


“The redesigned Kia Sportage is on our Must Test Drive list mainly because it’s so good at so many things. The Sportage has a wide range of prices and options, has a unique look and comfortable interior. The 240 horsepower Sportage SX turbo is simply a blast to drive, something we were not expecting from a small SUV,” said Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader.
