Kia-Sportage-2016

Journalists of German AutoBild constantly tests used vehicles to reveal key shortcomings. The testing is done in a detailed way for all the defects, even small, not to hide from attention.

This time they checked the crossovers with over 100,000km (62,137 miles) mileage and compiled the list of 15 most reliable ones (in descending order, from the most to the least reliable car).

The Kia Sportage (pictured above), Volvo XC60 and BMW X1 top the list, and we are not surprised. But the small Peugeot 2008 poses in the middle (8th place).

It is called reliable enough. Huh!.. Noisy front shock absorbers caused the most complaints.

Surprisingly, the Subaru XV ranked 15th. After 100,000 km of run, the Japanese crossover distinguished itself with poorly fixed interior panels and not very good driver’s seat. In addition, the chassis parts began to rust and the clutch wore out.

Full list is the following:

  1. KIA Sportage
  2. Volvo XC60
  3. BMW X1
  4. Hyundai Tucson
  5. Mazda CX-5
  6. Suzuki SX4 S-Cross
  7. Fiat 500 X
  8. Peugeot 2008
  9. Nissan Qashqai
  10. MINI Countryman
  11. Ford Kuga
  12. Suzuki Vitara S
  13. Citroen C4 Cactus
  14. Audi Q3
  15. Subaru XV
