ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

With a striking look and an attractive sticker, the 2018 Kia Sportage certainly has a lot to offer. Here are some stats on the Sportage, and why you should consider taking one home.

8-Inch UVO Touchscreen

The EX trim level has an 8-in upgraded touchscreen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. There are other impressive upgrades, and we're particularly fond of the available Harmon Kardon Premium sound system. The surround sound system produces great quality sound from the powerful 320 watts and 8 speakers.

2.0-Liter Engine

The base engine in the Sportage is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder good for 181 horsepower. For those who want more power, there's the 2.0-liter 240 horsepower 4-cylinder on the SX Turbo. AWD is also available on both engine choices.

Value

With a starting sticker of less than $24,000, the Sportage is an exceptional value. Kia provides a warranty that's among one of the better ones you'll find. Also, take into consideration the long standard feature list, and its plain to see that the Sportage stands out when talking bang for buck.

39.3 Inches

Inside the Sportage, the headroom is ample at over 39 inches in both the front and the back seats on models not equipped with a sunroof. Overall, the interior has a pleasant vibe, and the seats remain comfortable even after longer drives. The higher trim levels give even more of a premium feel with leather trim, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control.

Con

26 Miles Per Gallon

The Sportage's base engine only returns around 26 mpg combined, and that isn't quite as good as the competition. It could be worth it to move up to the SX Turbo trim level. The 240 horsepower engine only loses three miles per gallon from the base engine, as it has a 23 mpg combined rating.

Autotrader Says

There 's a lot to like about the 2018 Kia Sportage, including unique styling. Looking for something that covers all the bases and then some? The Sportage is definitely worth a good look.
