Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the GMC Terrain than the Kia Sportage. The GMC Terrain will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain as you will with the Kia Sportage, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the GMC Terrain or the Kia Sportage, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little narrower than the Kia Sportage, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sportage.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has the same turning radius as the Kia Sportage, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The GMC Terrain has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sportage.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the GMC Terrain does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Sportage.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Kia Sportage. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Kia Sportage, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the GMC Terrain than that of the Kia Sportage.
