What's New for the Upcoming Year?

This year, the Kia Sportage enters a new generation, and with it comes a newly available hybrid and plug-in-hybrid powertrains. With a new plug-in hybrid engine, the Sportage is now a stronger competitor against other models offering the same engine type.


The Kia Sportage comes with three distinct powertrain options. The base powertrain is a 2.5-liter 187-hp four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While the hybrid variants utilize a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with a single electric motor to generate a combined 226 horsepower. Either powertrain can be paired with front- or all-wheel drive.


The new Kia Sportage separates itself from its various competitors with its unique styling. The Sportage's unconventional external features include a set of alien-looking headlights and a distinct grille design. While its distinctive bodywork is dimensionally bigger, resulting in more cargo space and a spacious cabin.

Inside, the Sportage impresses with a sleek design that's highlighted by a large digital display and various distinct details. The center console uses a rotary shift knob, has a push-to-start button, and offers a myriad of other controls that blend seamlessly into the piano-black bezel. And thanks to the larger dimensions and a longer wheelbase, the Sportage has more rear-seat legroom and 40 cubic feet of cargo space.


The Sportage has a stylish interior with a large digital display and a center console that boasts many controls. This model also provides a lot of amenities to create a comfortable experience for all sitting in its cabin. Standard features for this model include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an upgraded premium sound system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
