Kia has one of the most diverse rosters of crossover SUVs, but it is by no means the only automaker that has entered the fray. A comparison of the 2019 Kia Sportage vs. 2019 Toyota C-HR will help buyers looking for a new vehicle find the best option to meet their needs. While both models each fall into the larger umbrella of the crossover SUV class, the 2019 Sportage and 2019 C-HR are vastly different vehicles with vastly disparate capabilities. The 2019 Kia Sportage is able to offer significantly more cargo volume and performance output than its Toyota competitor. Kia has also made more devices compatible with its infotainment system than what is available with the Toyota crossover SUV.

One of the many things that have helped Kia move to the front of the automotive industry is the manufacturer’s commitment to technology. Every trim grade of the 2019 Kia Sportage available at the Classic Kia Carrollton showroom is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen that will control all of the vehicle’s media functions, including smartphone integration. Owners of the 2019 Sportage will be able to connect their compatible devices to the Kia infotainment and access the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ suites of applications. The 2019 Toyota C-HR offers a similar capability, but the Toyota infotainment system in the C-HR will only work with Apple-based applications. A crossover SUV must also be functional to be successful. The 2019 Sportage can configure its interior to offer up to 60.1 cubic-feet, nearly doubling the 36.4 cubic-feet available with the 2019 Toyota C-HR.
