Maybe all you need to know about the 200 drop-top is that it’s derived from the Sebring, and the overhaul had to be done quickly and on a tight budget.

If you need the size, can afford $60,000 or so and a big premium-fuel appetite (midteens with prayer), can live with the quirky steering and (possibly) numb brakes and like a distinctive, often satisfying machine, you might be a match for the new QX56.

For its good looks, thoughtful packaging, above-average drivetrain, we’d love to give Sportage a hearty recommendation. For its nearly intolerable ride, seats and steering, we’ll do no such thing.
