The all-new 2011 Kia Sportage is completely and beautifully redesigned, Sportage offers more urban and fluid silhouettes than its predecessor while retaining the desirable benefits and functional features of the popular CUV.
Sportage also offers increased levels of performance and efficiency, comfort and convenience and the latest in-vehicle technologies incorporated into all of Kia’s latest new vehicles.
The 2011 Sportage offers image-conscious yet practical consumers more power and improved fuel economy along with the options of a panoramic sunroof, navigation, push-button start, rear camera display, LED daytime running lights and an air-cooled driver’s seat (a compact CUV segment first).
With a high beltline, sweeping angles and more pronounced wheel flares the 2011 Sportage conveys a demanding road presence within its compact size by emphasizing its hunkered-down position.
Sportage comes with a host of convenience features including air conditioning, power windows, 12-volt power outlets in the front and cargo areas, power side mirrors with integrated LED indicators, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, keyless entry with panic alarm and multi-way adjustable front seats.
The all-new Sportage comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with Continuously Variable Valve Timing, offering more power (176 hp) and better fuel economy than the previous 2.7-liter V6 engine. A more powerful but extremely fuel efficient 2.0-liter turbo GDI engine delivers V6-type power with a four-cylinder engine that produces 270-plus horsepower.
Base model estimated mpg: 22/31
Estimated starting price: $18,295
