The Kia Sportage is a compact SUV that offers a comprehensive set of safety features, excellent versatility, and tremendous value, costing thousands less than the competition. The Sportage can seat five passengers and comes in front or four-wheel drive. It is available in LX and EX trims. It rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and a four-wheel-independent suspension that gives a 7.7-inch ground clearance. The rear window flips up for rear cabin access. It has the choice of 140 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 173 hp 2.7-liter V-6 engines. The V-6 comes with a four-speed automatic and the four-cylinder has the option of either the automatic or a five-speed manual gearbox. The Kia Sportage is a carryover from 2006.
