2021 Kia Sportage: The 3 variants in detail

kia-sportage

The Kia Sportage is one of the longest running nameplates for the South Korean car brand. If you know who Onemig Bondoc is, then you pretty much have a good idea how long the Sportage has been around.

The Kia Sportage that we’ve got currently is a carryover from 2019. Two engines are available to choose from for Kia Sportage buyers—a 2.0-liter D-CVVT gasoline (153hp and 192Nm) and 2.0-liter CRDI E-VGT diesel (182hp and 400Nm) The lone gas engine variant shifts via a 6-speed automatic, while the two diesel trims manage with an 8-speed automatic with Shiftronic feature. Meanwhile, a Drive Mode Select feature allows the driver to choose between different driving to control different functions including throttle, steering response, and transmission RPM shift points, among others.

Inside, driver controls take on an ergonomic, minimalistic, and intuitive design. Kia smartly kept the Sportage’s dashboard features sparse, giving the crossover a very streamlined look. The roomy interior is made more welcome with comfortable seats and tasteful appointments such as dual zone automatic climate control with rear vents, Push Start convenience, and Smart Entry (GT-Line AT only), plus a standard 6-speaker, 8-inch infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility for the diesel variants.

If you’re wondering what else the Kia Sportage has in store, below is the breakdown of the features contained in each of the vehicle’s three variants, with pricing included.
