The Kia Sportage - A Capable Crossover

As a vehicle that fills the gap between the sedan and SUV, the Kia Sportage seems to have the answers for everything. It has great style and modern interior features, plus it has an affordable starting price. It's a great option for so many of our customers at Visalia Kia.

Performance

Three out of the four trims - the Kia Sportage LX, Kia Sportage S, and Kia Sportage EX - are equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It has 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. Despite being on the smaller side compared with many SUVs, the Kia Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. This combination of agility and power is one reason why the Kia Sportage has done so well in the greater Clovis area.

The highest trim that we have at our dealership is the Kia Sportage SX Turbo. It's powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 237 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. This would definitely be the trim we recommend to people from Hanford who value performance.

All of our new Kia Sportage models come standard with front-wheel drive, but you have the opportunity to install a Dynamic All-Wheel Drive system in any of them. With all-wheel drive, the car is always monitoring road conditions and vehicle performance, and power will be distributed as needed to the appropriate wheels in order to maintain control. If the road is pretty rough, you can lock the center differential to add low-speed traction.




Features

Driving a Kia Sportage around Porterville gives you the opportunity to carry all kinds of gear with you. You'll be happy having 30.7 cubic-feet of dedicated storage space in the back of the car, and if you need more room for larger items, simply fold down the back row to expand cargo capacity to 60.1 cubic-feet. For those who head up frequently into the mountains to go skiing or who go kayaking at the lake, roof rails are standard on the Kia Sportage S, Kia Sportage EX, and Kia Sportage SX Turbo. A Smart Power Liftgate, which comes with the top two trims, can be very convenient to have when your hands are full.

Interior & Technology

If you like what you're hearing about all of these features, you'll be pleased to know that the interior features are equally impressive. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard on all trims of the Kia Sportage, giving you a simple way to stay connected to the network with access to all of your music and contacts. Another high-tech feature is the infotainment system that comes with an eight-inch touchscreen and voice recognition. The Kia Sportage SX Turbo has an upgraded system that includes voice-command navigation and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Every Kia Sportage comes with at least one USB input and charging port, and a rear charging port can be included as well. For the ultimate in convenience, you can get a wireless charging pad for compatible mobile phones.

Safety & Comfort

Just like the Kia Brand has made a point by focusing on its technology package, it has also prioritized safety. The Kia Sportage has several driver-assist systems that work to prevent you from getting in an accident. Lane Keeping Assist will keep you in our lane, Driver Attention Warning will alert you when it seems like you should re-focus your attention on the road, and Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist will warn you about potential frontal collisions and can even hit the brakes for you. Plus, with the Kia Sportage S trim, you to get blind-spot and rear cross traffic warnings, which should prove invaluable for travel in the greater Tulare area.

As you drive the Kia Sportage around town, you'll be able to do so in comfort. The front seats can be heated and ventilated, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat is available, and the available heated steering wheel can really warm up your hands on chilly days. LED interior lighting can add to the ambience of the cabin, as can the piano black interior trim that the Kia Sportage EX and Kia Sportage SX Turbo come with.
