Independent online reviews of the 2019 Kia Sportage have a lot of positive things to say about the crossover SUV. Some of the top-line praise for the Kia vehicle is centered around its smooth ride quality and very generous seating dimensions. This is very clearly demonstrated in the rear legroom measurements for the 2019 Sportage and 2019 Rogue. The Kia crossover SUV can offer up to 38.2 inches for rear passengers to stretch their legs, depending on how far back the driver and front passenger set their seats. The 2019 Nissan Rogue comes up short in that area. One area where the 2019 Sportage and 2019 Rogue share some capability is with each model’s available drivetrain equipment. Both crossover SUVs offer front- and all-wheel-drive. Additionally, Kia and Nissan have outfitted their crossover SUVs with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
