Car shoppers typically respond to stylish sheet metal, and the 2014 Kia Sportage is undeniably gifted in this area. The Sportage also rewards buyers with sharp handling.
The 2014 Kia Sportage is a compact crossover that accommodates five passengers, and it’s sold in LX, EX and SX trims. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available.
For 2014, the Sportage slims its trim lineup from four to three by dropping last year’s base trim. Kia’s small crossover also benefits from a new 2.4-liter engine, exterior enhancements and the addition of available HID headlights. Finally, the navigation system has been upgraded, and the Sportage adds standard second-row air-conditioning vents and an available Infinity sound system.
This Kia’s sheet metal looks handsome and crisp. In profile, the Sportage display a beltline that rises toward a gently sloping roof. Sculpted surfaces lend a three-dimensional look to the crossover’s side panels and hood, and the Sportage travels on standard 17-inch alloy wheels.
Base models come equipped with projection headlights, privacy glass, body-colored door handles and power-adjustable side mirrors. Upgrades include 18-inch wheels, fog lights, HID headlights, a rear spoiler, chrome body trim, a panoramic sunroof, LED taillights and side mirrors with integrated turn signals.
The Sportage’s cabin brings ample panache, with attractive design and lots of textured plastics. There’s a roomy front seat on board, but the rear seat may be a tight fit for taller adults. With all seats in place, the Sportage provides 26.1 cubic feet of cargo space. This figure grows to 54.6 cubic feet when the second row is lowered.
Base LX models feature air conditioning with second-row air vents, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, manually adjustable front seats and 60/40-split folding rear seats that recline. You can upgrade your Sportage with leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a chilled glove box and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
With its agile handling and peppy acceleration, the 2014 Kia Sportage delivers a thoroughly agreeable driving experience. LX and EX models are motivated by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine good for 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The top SX trim features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that provides 260 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. All trims utilize a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available.
The 2014 Kia Sportage has an EPA rating of up to 21/28 mpg city/highway, and it’s capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds.
Sportage buyers enjoy a respectable range of technology features. Base LX models come with Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, USB connectivity and auxiliary input jacks.
Available features include navigation, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, rear parking sensors, voice recognition and a premium Infiniti sound system.

Nice small SUV
"I like my Sportage, it runs great, haven't had a issue with it yet. Only thing i wish was it had little more storage room in the back. Although mean Sportage doesn't really indicate being able to haul tons of crap. " Read Less
