Is an automatic transmission the key to a better hybrid driving experience?

It has impressive fuel economy and preserves the driving character of its gas-only counterpart. What more do you want?

As the name suggests, the engine is the focus of this upgrade. And it's a successful one.

Look past that funny face and Kia's new Sportage is a well-rounded, competent crossover.

There's nothing revolutionary or super exciting about the 2017 Sportage, and that's fine. Kia's midsize CUV is bound to be a hot seller.
