Protégé : 2017 Kia Sportage vs 2016 Toyota RAV4 on the South Shore of Montreal

The SUV has been pretty popular for the past few years on Montreal’s South Shore since they are vehicles that are practical, sporty and reliable. From the vast choice that is offered to consumers in Brossard and St-Constant, two giants tower over the others: The RAV4 and the Sportage. According to the Car Guide, there is no doubt that the first eclipses the second; let’s see why.

If we look at their base price, we can see that they are similar since they are both near the $ 25 000 mark. As for the mechanics, once again, we don’t see any noticeable difference. The 2016 RAV4 and the 2017 Sportage produces more than 180 horsepower, but notice that the power to weight ratio of the Toyota is superior (84,9 W/kg against 82,8). The Toyota SUV is also energy efficient, it requires only 10 L/100km in the city and 7,6 L/100km on the highway.

When it comes to security, the 2016 RAV4 for sale in Montreal’s South Shore wins hands down thanks to its unique Toyota Security Star system. In fact, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 offers highly advanced security features such as Smart Stop Technology (SST) and Traction Control (TRAC). That’s why the Car Guide attributes it an impressive and unbeatable 100%, to the 2017 Sportage’s still respectable 80%.

All in all, the 2017 Sportage has the imposing looks of a rebel that adapts to situations you would find in Brossard and in Longueuil. But sadly, the 2016 RAV4 is such a great, reliable performer that it is impossible for it to catch up.  In fact, the Car Guide gave an overall rating of 76% to the 2016 RAV4, while the 2017 Sportage only earned 73%.
