2022 Kia Sportage Review
Under the hood, the Kia Sportage packs a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. This engine configuration comes ready to pump out 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This type of power and acceleration is able to handle just about any adventure you have in mind.
While impressively powerful, the Sportage also performs highly efficiently. This Kia SUV comes ready to earn an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG.* This is due in part to the electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission overdrive with SportmaticÒ.
The Sportage also offers an additional engine option in its SX Turbo trim level. This Kia model comes with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that pumps out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque while still incorporating the 6-speed transmission, perfect if you’re looking for additional power.
The first area of the interior you’ll want to examine is the space available. The Sportage comes with 129.3 cubic feet of interior volume. This breaks down into 98.6 cubic feet of passenger volume and 30.7 cubic feet of cargo volume. This space will handle up to five passengers with plenty of room left over for storage.
If you’re headed on an adventure where you need to prioritize your cargo-carrying abilities, the Sportage will accommodate. Utilizing the 60/40 split-folding woven cloth rear seats, you’ll be able to create up to 60.1 cubic feet of cargo volume.
If your next adventure entails taking equipment that just won’t fit on the inside of the Sportage, the towing abilities of this Kia SUV will prove handy. The Sportage has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds, allowing you to hitch up a moderately sized trailer.
The Sportage will also impress with its interior amenities. Looking at its multimedia setup, you’ll see an 8-inch touchscreen system. This comes with Android Autoä, Apple CarPlayÒ, and SiriÒ Eyes Free capabilities, so you can integrate your mobile device with your Kia vehicle for constant connectivity on the go.
The Sportage also makes a wireless phone charger available on some trim levels. Adding this feature will prove handy as you use your mobile device on the go for music, calling, texting, navigation, and more. Just place your phone on the charging pad and you’re good to go!
The 2022 Sportage also comes configured with a standard Remote Keyless Entry system. This will come in handy if your keys have fallen to the bottom of your purse or pocket, so you won’t have to dig around to find them. As long as the key is on your person and within range, you’ll be able to access your Sportage with ease!
