Towing Capacity

Although the compact SUV class isn't known for its towing capacity, you still need a model that allows you to haul whatever equipment you may need. If you still haven't decided whether you should drive the 2020 Kia Sportage or the 2020 Toyota RAV4, then take a look at their respective towing capacities.

With the Toyota RAV4, you'll be able to tow up to 1,500 pounds, which should be more than enough for most drives. However, this is another category where the Kia Sportage proves itself as the better model, as this SUV provides a max towing capacity of 2,000 pounds-that's 500 more pounds than the Toyota RAV4.

Roomy and Comfortable Interior

One of the main reasons most people want to purchase an SUV is for its abundance of space inside the cabin. Whether you're driving your family around frequently, or love to take road trips, you'll be sure to enjoy all the room these vehicles offer for your passengers and precious cargo.

Stretch out and stay comfortable while riding in the Kia Sportage model's spacious interior, which is 129.3 cubic feet of room to be exact.

Innovative Compact Technology

Technology is one of the areas where the Kia Sportage and the Toyota RAV4 stand out from the rest of the compact class. These tech features are meant to provide you with added convenience on the road and can boost your enjoyment when you go for a drive.

Perhaps the most interesting tech features of the 2020 RAV4 is the available HomeLink® system, which allows you to control your front gate or garage door from your car. While useful, this feature doesn't match up to the 8-Inch Touchscreen of the Kia Sportage, which provides MP3 Playback, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Bluetooth®, and more.
