Model Highlights

The 2019 Kia Sportage is available in one of three different trims. LX and EX models feature a 2.4L 4-cylinder, making 181 horsepower, while the top-of-the-line SX Turbo uses a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder rated at 240 horsepower in 4-wheel drive trim. All three trim levels are available with all-wheel drive as a $1,500 option, but opting for AWD on the SX Turbo does decrease power slightly (it's rated at 237 horsepower) and costs only a couple of miles per gallons. Generally, though, the Sportage is pretty miserly with its fuel as it can achieve up to 30 mpg on the highway when configured correctly. The only transmission choice is a 6-speed automatic.

Even base Kia models tend to be pretty well-equipped and the Sportage LX is no exception. Some surprising standard features are available on the under-24,000 dollar vehicle. 17-inch alloy wheels come as standard equipment as do daytime running lights, power adjustable outside mirrors, a rear spoiler, body-colored door handles, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, a backup camera and steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls.

Midlevel EX models build on the LX by adding roof rails, heated exterior mirrors, 18-inch wheels and additional chrome work to the exterior. Inside, EX-trimmed Sportages include a 7-inch touchscreen display, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats and leather seating surfaces.

The top-of-the-line SX Turbo comes with everything on the EX while jazzing up the interior with a bigger touchscreen in the center console, a harman-kardon sound system, a built-in navigation system, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a built-in garage door opener and LED interior lighting. The SX Turbo also comes with a full sensor suite, including a blind spot warning system, a lane departure warning system, an emergency autonomous braking system and rear cross-traffic alert. These sensors also make a very handy self-parking mode possible on the SX Turbo, again included as standard equipment. The SX Turbo looks upscale too, with bigger 19-inch wheels, a unique gloss-black grille, power-folding mirrors with integrated turn signals, a big panoramic sunroof, a powered liftgate and Bi-Xenon HID headlights.

Model News

The Kia Sportage continues into 2019 mostly unchanged, though a few of the options and packages have seen some minor shuffling. The biggest change is the deletion of the technology package, which is no longer available for 2019.

Value Writeup

The Kia Sportage competes in the increasingly popular compact SUV class, amongst vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V. More and more, buyers are opting for small SUVs in place of traditional family sedans. Vehicles like the Kia Sportage feature increased off-road and all-weather abilities without paying huge penalties in fuel economy, space or comfort. Unlike full-sized SUVs, the Sportage is relatively easy to park in the city. The 2019 Sportage starts at around $24,000 with a standard equipment list strong enough for even the most skeptical buyer.
