I take it that it is a double din unit built into the dash.
Pretty much any double din unit will work, but you will need a cable connector set & possibly a facia unit as well.

If you are going that route then something with Android Auto & Apple Car play is the best option (so long as you have a smart phone) then you use that for navigation on the screen.

do you know if the steering wheel and voice commands worked with it

Thanks
Yes rhe steering wheel did. But the voice command needed the included mic wiring. Vant use the already installed one. Which he didn't do

really stuck as to what to go for, seen some nice ones online but a lot say they only fit the sportage with the older stereo and not the newer touch screen, but they look the same
So confusing

Double din units are roughly the same size on all cars. Like has been said. You may just need a fascia adapter.

Well i went and brought an after market unit, it arrived and guess what, the cables are wrong, what a shock :) and i was assured it would fit the sportage with the newer stereo (which it does, physically)
does anyone know of anywhere i can get the correct adapters.
See pics
Many Thanks

Connects 2.

Even if you buy the likes of pioneer etc. The plugs will not be the same.
