Benefits of Driving a 2013 Kia Sportage Sport Utility Crossover

The recently redesigned Sportage has quickly become one of the leaders 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 new Sportage is of a size that's large enough for a growing 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.

What's new for 2013?

The Kia Sportage gets only a few changes for 2013. Power folding mirrors are now standard across all trims while EX and LX models get new LED accent lights. The SX also gets lighting improvements with LED daytime running lights. Also new for 2013 is a funky blue interior package for EX models featuring blue cloth seats and a black headliner.

Model Review

The Sportage is offered in Base, LX, EX and SX models. All but the SX come with a 176-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The SX comes with a 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 and with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
