Some editors have compared the interior of this Kia to that of Audi products, indicating that Kia is doing something right. The cabin of the Sportage is well-executed, with a pleasing mix of quality materials and useful, functional features. It's a large enough space for passengers but not cargo. The rear-seat accommodations will accommodate adults, but some may complain about the seat cushion's low placement. Cargo space is limited for the class, and storage for small items is limited, but its seats-down carry-on luggage capacity and adjustable load floor make up for some of that.

Kia Sportage Cargo Space

The cargo space in the Kia Sportage is less than that of many other compact SUVs. When you fold down the second row, you get 30.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats (class leaders have about 38 or 39 cubic feet) and 60.1 cubic feet when you fold down the third row. Though this is below average for the class, the maximum cargo area is spacious and open, making it simple to load large or heavy items into the vehicle. A cargo floor that can be adjusted is standard, and a hands-free power liftgate is available as an option.

How Many People Does the Kia Sportage Seat?

This Kia crossover has two rows of seating for five people. Both the front and rear seats are spacious and comfortable. Adults have plenty of head- and legroom, and entry and egress are simple.

Kia Sportage and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the back outboard seats, as well as a tether anchor for the back middle seat. For its ease of use, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable. The upper tether anchors are easily accessible and clearly marked, but the lower anchors are hidden deep within the seats.
