2016 Kia Sportage Review

The 2016 Kia Sportage remains a leader in the crossover field because it lives up to the “Sport” in its name. With options for a turbocharged engine and All Wheel Drive, the Sportage goes where others can’t. With America’s Best Warranty and the great low payments available at Waikem Kia, this is the Sportage is a great choice to park in your driveway. 

So what’s new?

The new Sportage offers more high line options at lower price. For instance, leather seats and keyless push button ignition are now standard on the middle EX trim. The base level LX trims adds a popular package which includes touch screen display, rear camera, auto on and off headlights, rear spoiler, roof rails and rear cup holders. 

Driving Dynamics

The Crossover Segment can be criticized for its timidness, so luckily the Sportage can do what others cannot. The standard 2.4L GDI engine produces 182 horsepower, or you can upgrade to the Sportage SX with a turbocharged 260 horsepower 2.0L GDI engine. It feels like a sports car hitting the curve at Daytona when you really let this Turbocharged Sportage do what it’s supposed to do, but the standard isn’t a slouch either. Both engines are unlike anything else in this class. Get any Sportage with either Front Wheel Drive or All Wheel Drive. Living in this area, we shouldn’t have to tell you how important All Wheel Drive is to your morning commute. 


Loaded with Tech 

Like all Kias, the Sportage is loaded up with technology to keep you safe and make the drive to work even more enjoyable. Using advanced voice activation technology, you tell UVO what to do and it just does it. UVO will make hands-free calls, play your favorite song and more. When paired with voice activated navigation, UVO makes sure you never get lost, and SIRUSXM Traffic uses real-time traffic data to help you avoid gridlock and get home to your family on time. 

The Kia Sportage adds other great tech and safety options like a rear view camera and back-up warning systems. 

Comfort Features

It’s not just all tech with the 2016 Kia Sportage, as it also offers all the comfort features you want in your next vehicle. With the available heated and cooled leather seats, you are ready for all weather conditions. The Sportage also offers a huge panoramic sunroof that stretches from the front to the back seat, so when it’s hot out everyone will have a better drive. The Sportage also has an optional cooled glove box, which is pretty neat because you can store a few bottles of water or cans of pop and have a cold beverage on a hot drive. 

America’s Best Warranty

The Kia Sportage has America’s Best Warranty, 10-years and 100,000 miles. The Sportage has five exterior and four interior color and fabric choices.
