To grab a larger slice of the pie from Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, the fifth generation Kia Sportage gets a big redesign. Literally. It goes from smallest to among the largest in class with best-in-class rear legroom and cargo room. There's also a fuel efficient hybrid powertrain (a plug-in is coming), plus there's a new X-Pro model designed to travel rugged terrain to get you to the good mountain biking trails. Sportage is now a serious contender. Tom Voelk travels to Palm Springs, CA to check out a Sportage EX AWD Hybrid, an SX Prestige AWD Hybrid and the rough and ready X-Pro AWD on a challenging off-road course.
