2022 Subaru Forester vs. Kia Sportage


The 2022 Subaru Forester gets better fuel efficiency than the 2022 Kia Sportage. Efficient SUVs make the best models for adventures, errands, and commutes, and we want you to get into one that doesn't make you have to stop as often to refuel. The 2022 Forester provides up to 33 MPG highway and 26 MPG city, while the 2022 Sportage maxes out at 30 MPG highway and 23 MPG city. When you look at a 2022 Sportage equipped with all-wheel drive, its fuel efficiency drops even more.

All-Wheel Drive

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard for the 2022 Subaru Forster, while the 2022 Kia Sportage needs a $1,500 upgrade to have all-wheel drive. The strength and capability of the 2022 Forester make it a great option for going off the pavement and towards your favorite campsite or trail. Having nearly two more inches of ground clearance and an off-road-oriented trim that offers even more, the 2022 Subaru Forester is better at tackling tough conditions than the 2022 Kia Sportage.

Passenger and Cargo Space

Being able to bring the items you need is important when looking for a new SUV. When the seats are folded, the 2022 Subaru Forester has more cargo space than the 2022 Kia Sportage. If you keep the seats upright, there is more legroom for front and rear passengers for the 2022 Forester. The 2022 Forester allows you to allocate space to the most important areas for every drive.

Safety Features

Both models come with a wide range of standard safety features, but the 2022 Subaru Forester is standard with some that the 2022 Kia Sportage needs to upgrade for. Adaptive Cruise Control is standard in Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology but only comes from upgraded Kia Sportage trims with Kia Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology.
