A compact SUV with seating for five, the 2016 Kia Sportage appeals to customers with an attractive design and a relatively high level of available content.
Kia provides two engine choices for the 2016 Sportage. The base LX and EX grades have a standard, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine and the SX trim relies on a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. All three trims have standard front-wheel-drive configurations, with all-wheel drive available throughout the lineup.
For 2016, the LX Popular package now bundles a touch-screen audio system, a rearview camera and automatic headlights, while the Sportage EX and SX receive additional standard equipment as compared with the 2015 model. The EX trim welcomes standard leather-trimmed seats and keyless entry/ignition, while options include a revised Premium package. The SX also has been upgraded with ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof and a HomeLink system, as well as the leather-trimmed seating surfaces.
The 2016 Sportage has an athletic, rugged look that’s emphasized by Kia’s “tiger nose” grille and the way its fog-light pockets are visually connected by the lower intake. LED positioning lights and an LED high-mounted stop lamp are standard in all Sportage trims. The top SX grade includes standard LED taillights and daytime running lights. Each trim also gets distinct wheels: 17-inch alloy wheels for the LX, 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels for the EX and 18-inch sport-alloy wheels for the SX.
Additionally available to highlight the Sportage are a chrome-tipped dual exhaust system and heated, power-folding side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators.
In the cabin, the 2016 Sportage starts with standard features like air conditioning, a multifunction steering wheel and a rear-seat air vent. More comfort and convenience can be found on the up-level trims, which supply power-adjustable and heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear-shift knob and a center armrest with cup holders for the rear seats. A number of notable premium cues also detail the Sportage SX. Here, standard content includes a cooling glove box and heated and ventilated front seats.
In terms of cargo capacity, the Sportage has 26.1 cubic feet behind its 60/40-split rear seats and 54.6 cubic feet in total.
The Sportage puts its focus on a dynamic driving experience with standard high-performance dampers for its suspension and, under its hood, a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The alternate engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit, increases output to 260 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard for both engines.
The 2016 Sportage has standard EPA grades of 21/28 mpg city/highway. That’s acceptable for the class, though competitors like the slightly larger 2016 Honda CR-V use less fuel. The Sportage with a turbocharged engine has EPA grades that peak at 20/26 mpg highway. With all-wheel drive, the EPA ratings for the Sportage are 19/26 mpg with the standard engine and 19/25 mpg highway with the optional power plant.
Standard technologies for the Sportage are Bluetooth connectivity and a six-speaker sound system with USB port. The Sportage offers options such as an Infinity premium audio system, a rearview camera system and rear parking sensors. Also, Kia’s Uvo telematics system is standard on the Sportage SX and available on the EX. It’s bundled with a navigation system and can provide vehicle diagnostics.
"THIS VEHICLE WOULD REQUIRE AWD WITH THE 2.4L ALONG WITH BACKUP CAMERA DRIVE CAPABILITY, HEATED CLOTH SEATS AND SIDE MIRRORS, As well as any another standard bells and whistles standard with the vehicle."
specious roomy stylish interior. As well as very comfortable.
I like the rolling swaying curves that do not crowd another
Also, the way the curves just seem to flow into one another.
I enjoyed the side to side command stability as well as the engines performance when asked to thrust forward in a moments notice.
There always seems to be room to breath in the cabin area no matter what.
the cost effectiveness of the vehicle appears to be well within a tolerant range as compared to other competitors boasting the same claims and them some.
