Interior and Exterior Design

You will find available heated front seats, dual-zone temperature control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror as well as standard satellite radio for the Sportage that is not available for the RAV4.

  • Performance: The Sportage and RAV4 largely have similar engines with direct-injection technology and continuously variable valve timing. However, the RAV4 does offer more horsepower.

Pricing and Coverage

  • Pricing: You will be able to save more money or afford more available features with the Sportage since it has a lower base price than the RAV4.
  • Warranty Options: The Kia Sportage's basic warranty comes with 24,000 extra miles and powertrain warranty offers an extra 40,000 miles than what you will find for the RAV4.
