Kia sportage  bolder bodywork is also dimensionally bigger than before, which translates to more cargo space and a roomier interior.

Inside, the new Kia Sportage is both attractive and packed with tech that includes a massive dash-mounted screen. Motivation comes from a 187-hp four-cylinder, a 226-hp hybrid powertrain

The Kia Sportage default powertrain is a 187-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder that mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The only all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid available for the Kia Sportage has the same gasoline engine as the standard hybrid but has a stronger electric motor and a larger battery pack.

We expect it to use the same setup as the plug-in hybrid variant of the Hyundai Tucson, so expect a 13.8-kWh battery pack and 261 combined horsepower. Kia sportage

The KIa  Sportage with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder is rated for 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway when equipped with front-wheel drive

Inside, the Kia  Sportage makes an impression with a snazzy design highlighted by a huge digital display on the dashboard and other various eye-catching details.

Kia sportage  interior is available in an attractive two-tone color scheme as an option, but if you prefer an all-black cabin that's available too.

Thanks to bigger dimensions overall as well as a longer wheelbase, the  kia Sportage has more rear-seat legroom and 40 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back seat.

On the infotainment front, the kia  Sportage comes standard with desirable features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

We'd suggest upgrading to the larger infotainment display, though, which measures 12.3 inches in diameter and provides more connectivity and crisper graphics. Kia sportage
