Which you should buy, 2014 or 2015? 2014
The five-passenger Sportage compact SUV received styling changes and a more powerful base engine for 2014, so the changes for 2015 are minimal. The next round of major changes will probably come for the 2017 model year, when it is due for a redesign.
Sportage comes in three models but two basic flavors: The LX and EX use a 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while the SX comes with a 260-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. All come with a standard six-speed automatic transmission and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
