Model Highlights

The Sportage is offered in Base, LX, EX and SX models. All but the SX come with a new 176-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The SX comes with a direct-injected 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes an astonishing 260 horsepower. All Sportages are available in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic.

The Dynamax 4-wheel drive system in the Sportage combines the ability to lock the power split 50/50 front to rear, or operate in a smart mode for best on-road performance.

Underneath the Sportage, a new MacPherson strut-type front suspension and multi-link rear suspension is tuned for crisp handling yet good ride comfort--and the setup helps maximize cargo and passenger space, Kia says. Kia has also included a new lightweight hydroformed subframe, with isolated front and rear suspensions, to help keep road noise out of the cabin. There's room for five in the Sportage and the back seats fold down neatly for a flat cargo floor.

In addition to front seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags and front active headrests, the Sportage includes electronic stability control plus anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution and brake assist--which helps provide full stopping power in panic-braking situations.

Modern technology and connectivity features are all well-represented in the Sportage as well. Even base trims include auxiliary and USB inputs, as well as Bluetooth with steering-wheel controls, for hands-free calling. Sirius satellite radio is also included with a trial subscription. Kia's new UVO communication and entertainment system is standard on the EX and SX models. Developed with Microsoft, it can bring up music easily through voice controls; the system includes SD-card capability as well as HD radio.

Base models of the Sportage include a surprisingly long list of standard equipment, including power locks and windows, air conditioning and a 6-speaker sound system. LX models add larger alloy wheels side mirror indicators, privacy glass and extra power outlets, with an expanded options list. EX models are equipped like a luxury vehicle, with dual-zone automatic climate control, a telescopic steering wheel, roof rails, leather trim and other upgrades. Heated leather seats are available.


Model News

The Sportage was redesigned in 2011, so the 2012 version doesn't change too much. The LX now features slightly larger 17-inch wheels and the EX and SX models feature a premium audio system with HD radio and a subwoofer as well as the new UVO in-dash infotainment system.


Value Writeup

The recently redesigned Sportage has quickly become one of the leaders in its class of compact SUVs, thanks to its stylish design, generous feature set, connectivity and entertainment systems and strong value for the money. Despite its compact size, the new Sportage is of a size that's large enough for a growing family of four, yet it still fits into a compact-car parking space. The Sportage's 4-wheel drive system combines the best of both worlds with a real locking center differential as well as car-like on-road all-wheel drive finesse.

Furthermore, Kia's 10-year warranty on powertrain components brings a peace of mind that's not matched by many other brands.
