Model Highlights

The Sportage is offered in LX, EX and SX models. All but the SX come with a new 182-horsepower, gasoline direct-injected 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that returns 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The SX comes with a turbocharged gasoline direct-injected 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes a very competitive 260 horsepower. All Sportages are available in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, with a 6-speed automatic transmission tasked with putting power to the wheels.

Kia's Dynamax intelligent all-wheel-drive system 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 MacPherson strut-type front suspension and multi-link rear suspension with improved damping help provide crisp handling yet good ride comfort -- and the setup helps maximize cargo and passenger space, Kia says. Kia has also included a lightweight hydro-formed 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. The LX trim includes 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.

The Sportage includes a surprisingly long list of standard equipment, including power locks and windows, air conditioning and a 6-speaker sound system. EX models add larger alloy wheels side mirror indicators, privacy glass and extra power outlets, with an expanded options list. SX 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

For 2014, the Kia Sportage has an improved direct-injection 2.4L engine, which increases power output from 176 to 182 horsepower. The base trim goes away, leaving only LX, EX and SX models. New high-performance dampers, which improve handling and ride quality, are standard, as is rear ventilation, while an Infinity audio system, HID headlights, LED taillights and a new navigation system are available. A new front grille and new wheel designs round out the changes.


Value Writeup

The Kia Sportage has become a leader 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 Sportage is of a size that's large enough for a 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 true locking center differential as well as car-like on-road all-wheel-drive finesse. Kia's 10-year warranty on powertrain components brings a peace of mind not easily matched by many other brands.

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2014 Kia Sportage vehicles manufactured September 30, 2013, through January 11, 2014. The certification label has incorrect tire pressure information printed on it, listing a specification that is 1 or 2 psi below the correct information. Thus, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."

Consequence
Maintaining tire pressure below the recommmend specification could result in premature tire wear, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will correct the label information, and owners will also receive a sticker to put into the owners manual, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February 2014. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall campaign number is SC103.

Dates of Manufacture

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
