Kia has finally replaced the Sportage, the model that put the Korean company on the map in the U.S. back in the mid-’90s. However, the all-new Kia Sportage is entirely different from the previous model as it is based off a car platform instead of being a traditional body-on-frame truck-based model as in the past.
Although the Sportage is derived from the Hyundai Tucson it has different styling and Kia has tuned the suspension so it delivers slightly sportier, crisper driving characteristics.
The entry-level Sportage LX comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, manual transmission and front-wheel drive. Apart from this it is well equipped including power door locks, windows and mirrors. And it has more safety features than any other vehicle on the market at this price.
