For serious passenger and cargo hauling matched with impressive fuel efficiency, the 2018 Sportage from Kia has you covered. Choosing the trim level of your new Sportage may seem like a toss-up, since each comes nicely equipped with modern features. First, select between two capable engines: the standard 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder and the available 2.0-liter turbo-four engine. Kia's 2.4-liter engine comes standard on both the Sportage LX base model and the mid-grade EX, while the range-topping Sportage SX Turbo comes fitted with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The base engine is a popular choice for drivers, since it delivers a highly capable 181 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, and can be paired with standard front-wheel drive (FWD) or the available Dynamax All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system.
Opt for the 2.0-liter turbocharged unit in the Sportage SX Turbo model, and performance and capability are enhanced further, to the tune of 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Regardless of engine and trim level choice, every 2018 Sportage shifts through the gears via an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission, complete with Overdrive and Kia's Sportmatic manual-shift mode.
When Kia recently redesigned the Sportage, the interior space of the crossover grew to provide drivers and families with added passenger room and cargo capacity. Fold down the second-row seats, and the 2018 Sportage can hold up to an impressive 60.1 cubic feet of cargo! In the Sportage's cockpit, drivers and front passengers are treated to an easy-to-use center stack featuring a touchscreen display powered by Kia's latest UVO infotainment system, plus a rearview camera to make parking hassle-free.
