Kia Sportage vs Nissan Qashqai vs Toyota RAV4

What's the verdict between the 3 competitors?



Quote:
The Contenders

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 114 2 Well equipped and great value to own privately. Can the new Kia finally topple the Qashqai?

Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 110 N-Connecta The current benchmark. Refined, economical, comfortable and enjoyable- it'll take some beating.

Toyota RAV4 2.0 D-4-D Active Refreshed RAV4 is more powerf

Verdict

All three of these SUVs have at least one thing going for them, but the Qashqai remains the best all-rounder. It’s not perfect, but it ticks all the boxes that are highly valued by buyers in this class.

1st - Nissan Qashqai For Well-resolved ride and handling; superb refinement; classy interior; lots of standard kit. Against More expensive than Kia to buy; comparatively short warranty Verdict Still the best small SUV on the markey=t

2nd - Kia Sportage For Great value private buy; smart and practical cabin Against CO2 emissions; noisy engine; choppy ride Verdict Makes sense if you're a private buyer

3rd - Toyota RAV4 For Most spacious; strongest engine; decent discounts Against So-so interior; refinement; sloppy handling Verdict Hard to recommend in light of the competition

Although handling of the Rav4 is lacking as they report it, it's not something that will matter much to the mass of owners in this segment. Much unlike those that are shopping for a sports car. So this just goes to show, not all review will give you the most relevant feedback, looking at multiple reviews is what we have to do. After that broad analysis then you can get a real sense of where these stand and other options in the segment and surrounding segments.

Does handling matter to you?

It'll be nice to have good handling, small and affordable SUV. Along with great fuel economy and interior space (leg room for passengers in the rear). Cargo wouldn't matter so much to me. I like a variety of colors (choices) too

That seems to be the general consensus for the Qashqai, it's just the perfect overall SUV and it's Nissan so you know the car will last you for years to come. Maybe Nissan will come out with different variants of it later on like plug in hybrid.

Even servicing and parts will be priced well since they should have parts that are shared among a number of vehicles, so that's one thing to consider especially if you're someone that plans to own one beyond the original warranty.

I think the Rav4 is about to get knocked out really soon with the C-HR coming out

The Sportage is lacking the automatic collision braking system that the qashqai has and there's no way to add it in. The qashqai is just the overall winner and title holder. Doubt the Toyota C-HR can take it when it is released.
