Kia Sportage Specs

The Kia Sportage offers two efficient and exciting powertrains. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This works alongside a 6-speed automatic Sportmatic® transmission.

Together they help this SUV get excellent fuel economy. The Kia Sportage can deliver an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city and 30 MPG highway[i].

 Front-wheel drive is standard, but Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive is available on every trim level. With either drivetrain, there's a Drive Mode Select feature that lets you adjust your settings between three modes.

Kia Sportage Passenger & Cargo Room

Inside the Kia Sportage, there's a roomy cabin with space for up to five people. Both rows of passengers can get comfortable with 41.5 inches of front legroom and 38.2 inches of rear legroom.

Behind the back seats, there's a large trunk with 30.7 cubic feet of cargo room. It's easy to load up when you've got your hands full too, thanks to an available Smart-Power Liftgate.

If you ever need to pack more, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats make it easy to nearly double your space. The Kia Sport has a maximum of 60.1 cubic feet of cargo room.

Plus, if you ever want to keep something like your Christmas tree outside, you can use the available roof rails to tie it up top.

Kia Sportage Technology

There's lots of technology available to make your drive in the Kia Sportage as fun and convenient as possible. The UVO eServices system features a 7-inch touchscreen in the center of your dashboard.

It lets you sync up with your cell phone and access your apps with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. It's also Bluetooth® compatible, so you can stream music and make hands-free phone calls.

Kia Sportage Safety

Whether you're backing out of a parking spot, changing lanes, or traveling at high speeds on the highway, there are also driver assistance features available that can watch out for you, including a Rear-Camera Display, a Blind Spot Collision Warning, and a Forward Collison Warning.
