Crossovers didn’t rise to the coveted spot as America’s favorite vehicle for nothing. Modern SUVs offer families the space and utility of an SUV, with the excellent fuel economy and luxurious comfort features of a sedan. Let’s review the different crossovers in Kia’s lineup and their best features, so you can decide which one you need.
