If you've always wanted to drive off-road, hitch up a trailer or do anything that larger vehicles can do, but were afraid the vehicle would be too large, then the small SUV class is for you. These vehicles, of which we will compare the 2017 Kia Sportage vs. 2016 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2016 Nissan Rogue, can do a lot of the heavy work that SUVs and trucks can do, but come in a small, affordable package. Plus, you'll get better fuel economy with a small SUV, with savings that are sedan-like.

The Toyota RAV4 is one of the more well-established small SUVs on the market, and with 176 HP and the ability to tow 1,500 pounds in 2016 models has some oomph underneath the hood. But the 2016 Kia Sportage is also well-established in the market as Kia's longest-running nameplate, and 2017 models come with a power output that puts the 2016 RAV4 and the 2016 Nissan Rogue to shame, with 240 HP in top-line models, easily besting the 2016 RAV4's 176 and the 2016 Rogue's 170. In addition, the 2017 Sportage can tow twice as much as the 2016 Rogue and 33 percent more than the 2016 RAV4 with a 2,000-pound towing capacity. That's power you can rely on with the 2017 Sportage, whether you need to haul items for a move or you need to change lanes on the highway.

Test Drive a Kia Sportage in Wichita Falls

The 2017 Kia Sportage got an exterior redesign, and features LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and fog lights that come standard in top-line models, as well as expanded interior room without sacrificing its increasingly-sleek look. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 has available DRLs but only in select models, while the 2016 Nissan Rogue has standard DRLs but its fog lights are only an option in one model. Get behind the wheel of a 2017 Sportage and you have the safety that comes with lights that will turn on and stay on, even if you might forget, and enjoy the added security of fog lights for those tricky driving situations. Not only does the 2017 Sportage have better lighting options, it comes with superior features like either a seven-inch or an eight-inch touchscreen, which makes it easier to select music or sync up with available voice-command navigation than the RAV4's and the Rogue's smaller available touchscreens.

What's left to say? The 2017 Kia Sportage is rougher, tougher and more feature-filled than the competition, and we'd love to show you a Kia Sportage on the lot at Patterson Kia of Wichita Falls, which is located at 2910 Old Jacksboro Highway in Wichita Falls TX.
