Model Highlights

The Sportage is available in two trim levels, LX and EX, and features a choice of two engines: a 2.0L 4-cylinder making 140 hp and 135 lb-ft of torque or a 2.7-liter V6 with 173 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, available only in the EX. Two-wheel drive with a 4-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission is standard, but the LX can be had with 4-wheel drive and a 5-speed manual with overdrive.

The list of standard safety is lengthy. Dual front airbags and seat-mounted side airbags are included, plus full-length side curtain airbags and front active headrests. The Sportage also has active safety measures, such as anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control and tire pressure monitoring.

The base model LX has 16-inch wheels, roof rails, front and rear tow hooks and a front-end skid plate. The EX adds a sunroof, fog lamps and outside mirrors, plus the larger 6-cylinder engine. The Drop & Fold rear seat is a 60/40 split seat that folds flush with the trunk floor for maximum cargo space when it's needed.

Standard interior equipment includes power windows, power mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors, rear privacy glass and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 sound system with Sirius satellite radio are found in the LX. The EX will upgrade the seat fabric and cover the shift knob and steering wheel with leather, plus add a sunroof, floor mats, and cargo cover. The EX and LX both have optional iPod integration and navigation system.


Model News

Since the Sportage got a facelift for 2009, there weren't very many changes to make for 2010. It has an EcoMinder in the dash to tell drivers when their habits are helping with fuel efficiency. An optional back-up warning system is now available as well.


Value Writeup

Kia's small utility vehicle is comparable to a Honda CR-V, but is priced about $5000 less. The EPA rates the Sportage as high as 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway for the 4-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission, and it comes with Kia's stellar 10-year/100,000-mile warranty.

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Rondo and Sportage, model year 2007-2011 Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and causing the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of PARK without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Kia will send an interim notification to owners in May 2013. When parts are available, owners will receive a second notification and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall campaign number is SC098.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
