Redesigned for 2017, the Sportage is now in its fourth generation. The current model builds on the strengths of its predecessor, while offering increased rear passenger room, increased cargo space and improved ride quality. Thanks to excellent build quality and stronger performance, the current model is the most appealing Sportage yet. Discover the ins and outs on used Kia Sportages, available now in Carvana's inventory.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

Engaging Steering, Handling

Though you may not expect it at first glance, the Sportage is actually a surprisingly fun vehicle to drive. This is due in large part to the finely tuned suspension which lends itself to sharper handling and precise steering.

Strong Turbocharged Engine With SX Trim

While the LX and EX models come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, it's the Sportage's SX model equipped with a powerful 2.0-liter engine that's earning all the attention. Capable of producing 260 horsepower, the SX sprinted from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds in Edmunds performance testing.

Chock Full Of Features

Regardless if you go with LX, EX, or SX model, you're sure to get plenty of value in the features for the money you'll spend. Standard with the LX (Sportage's base model) are items such as full power accessories, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, satellite radio, an aux port, and a USB port. The optional Popular package adds notable items like a trip computer, a rearview camera, and a 4.3-inch touchscreen audio system.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Cargo And Passenger Space

Specifically, when it comes to the legroom available in the Sportage's second row, there simply isn't that much when compared to other similarly sized vehicles. And while these seats do recline, the seats do not slide forward and back. Furthermore, cargo space is in short supply, as well. Behind the rear seats is 26.1 cubic feet, and when folded down, that space expands to 54.6 cubic feet.

Ride Quality

For everything you get with the Sportage's sport-tuned suspension, it lacks when it comes to overall ride quality. The chief complaint with the Sportage is its firm ride, which can tend to jostle passengers when traversing rough stretches of road.

Fuel Economy

Depending on which Sportage trim you go with, the fuel economy numbers will differ, though there isn't a huge disparity. The EPA estimates that the front-drive LX and EX get 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city/28 mpg highway), while the all-wheel-drive models drop to 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city/26 mpg highway). The SX model gets similar EPA estimates, getting 22 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and 21 mpg combined with all-wheel. These are subpar numbers compared to class competitors.
