The Sportage is Kia's entry-level compact SUV vehicle. Where the original Sportage was a body-on-frame truck-based SUV, the modern Sportage is stylish crossover vehicle that compares favorably to a wide range of vehicles from the Honda CR-V to the Chevrolet Equinox. Available in FWD and AWD configurations, Sportage LX and EX models are powered by a 2.4l 4-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Sportage SX models equip 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder for a serious bump in power to 256-bhp. The Sportage is unmatched in style with a distinctive look that is unmistakable for other vehicles. Vehicles in this segment offer a fair amount of utility for the money. The rear seats fold flat creating a long load floor. Priced from $19,000, the Sportage is also a good value.
