2019 Kia Sportage
For its compact size, the 2019 Kia Sportage is fitted with quite a powerful engine block. This crossover SUV gets 181 horsepower from the 2.4 L I-4 engine. A turbocharger controls the propulsion mechanism under the hood of the SX Turbo model. This high-level trim runs on a 2.0 L engine that whips out 240 hp and just less than 240 lb-ft of torque. Gasoline direct injection is a standard technology in the mechanical compartment of the Sportage.
A front-wheel drive could be changed to the optional Dynamax All-Wheel Drive. By adjusting the torque in the front and rear wheels, this patented AWD system increases traction in challenging conditions. Electronic sensors determine the optimum combination of torque in the axles of the adaptive drivetrain. A locking center differential also contributes to optimum handling on wet surfaces.
The 2019 Kia Sportage has a maximum fuel economy of 30 MPG on the highway and 23 MPG in the city. When you add regular unleaded gasoline to the 16.4-gallon fuel tank, you could take a nonstop trip of roughly 500 miles. A 2,000-pound towing capacity is another notable technical specification of this family vehicle.
The UVO infotainment system is the electronic command center inside the 2019 Kia Sportage. Featuring a highly responsive 8-inch touch screen, this multimedia platform is connected to HD Radio and SiriusXM. If you prefer data feeds from Google, just connect a compatible Android smartphone with the Android Auto portal.
Connecting an iPhone should be easy thanks to the Apple CarPlay technology in the UVO suite. This Kia crossover SUV has an eight-speaker audio system that releases 320 booming watts of acoustic power. The Harman Kardon sound system takes advantage of the most recent version of the patented Clari-Fi technology that restores and clarifies audio waves. Measuring 4.2 inches, the Sportage’s Supervision Meter Cluster adds some contemporary utility to the cabin.
This TFT LCD monitor keeps you informed of the car’s mechanical and electronic settings. The 2019 Sportage also has premium amenities that improve comfort, such as the dual-zone temperature control system and Cluster Ionizer. Fabric upholstery by YES Essentials protects the seats from stains and deterioration.
Powered by the next-generation Kia Drive Wise technology, the 2019 Sportage’s active safety features greatly improve your confidence on the highway. The risk of a forward collision is significantly minimized by the Autonomous Emergency Braking. If another car approaches you from behind, the Lane Change Assist will override the steering system. You’ll also be alerted by the Blind Spot Detection technology if another vehicle gets too close to you in an adjacent lane. The all-new Parking Assist includes front and rear sonar sensors that improve handling in tight spaces. Some of the car’s handling-oriented features include the Downhill Brake Control and Brake Assist.
