2019 Kia Sportage Review

When shopping for a new compact SUV, you may have three items on your mind: comfort, space, and features. Although this could be describing lots of vehicles, it's the Sportage that may have everything you're looking for, and more.

We here at Maguire Kia created this 2019 Kia Sportage review to show you what this automobile has to offer. See how it could elevate your drives around Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton, and contact us when you want to see it in person.

Interior Design & Amenities

The quality of the 2019 Kia Sportage interior is evident as soon as you step inside the cabin. It's filled with lots of high-quality materials, like available leather seating and Gloss Black interior trim.

Heated and ventilated front seats are available, along with a heated steering wheel. With these features in place, you can quickly warm up or cool down with just the touch of a button. Plus, dual-automatic climate control is another useful feature that's available. This one will let you and your co-pilot adjust individual cabin temperatures, so no one has to stay too hot or too cold.

What the vehicle really tries to do is put the driver at the center of its universe. It does this through its overall cabin design, with an angled console, displays, and buttons. Everything is ergonomically designed so that you get complete comfort and control throughout every drive.

Kia Sportage Technologies

The technologies found in the 2019 Sportage are designed to help keep you connected, entertained, and safe through your daily commutes.

A UVO infotainment system is available with an 8-inch color touchscreen, navigation system, and SiriusXM® Traffic. If you prefer the mapping system on your phone, just plug it into the vehicle's USB port to activate Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™.

You can also enjoy SiriusXM® Satellite Radio that comes standard. You'll have over 130 channels to choose from, 69 of which are 100% commercial-free. Plus, the available 8-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Surround Sound system allows you to hear everything in crisp, crystal-clear quality.

Furthermore, there's a large selection of available driver-assisting technologies that can offer you some great peace of mind. With Kia Drive Wise, you'll get help with parking, changing lanes, avoiding a head-on collision, and more.

2019 Sportage Interior Space

Of the many features found inside the Kia Sportage, the one that's probably most appreciated is the amount of interior room.

This SUV comfortably seats five, with great visibility from the front seats and room for even taller passengers in the back seats. Up front, you get 39.3 inches of headroom and 41.5 inches of legroom. Then, in the back, there are 39.1 inches of headroom and 38.2 inches of legroom.

There's lots of cargo room, as well, which is great for work, errands, or vacation. Behind the back row, you get 30.7 cubic feet of space. Fold that row down, and the space expands to 60.1 cubic feet for your larger items.

In addition, you can easily access the cargo area with the available Smart Power Liftgate®. As long as your key fob is on you, the liftgate will detect it and automatically open, allowing for quick and easy loading.
