2020 Kia Sportage vs 2020 Ford Escape

2020 models are starting to debut from automotive brands around the world. While few have yet to be released, many will be hitting American dealerships over the next few months. From the Kia brand, one 2020 model shortly on its way is the 2020 Kia Sportage compact SUV.

Wanting to find a proper competitor for the 2020 Kia Sportage, the announcement of the 2020 Ford Escape provides the perfect opportunity. Aside from having nearly identical builds and pricing structures, the Ford Escape underwent a redesign for its 2020 model, with its new face looking quite like the iconic look of the Kia Sportage. So, let’s see how they compare. It’s the 2020 Kia Sportage vs the 2020 Ford Escape!

  • Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror with HomeLink®
  • Rear Camera Display
  • Solar and Privacy Glass
  • Hill Start Assist Control
