What You’ll Love About the 2019 Kia Sportage
Under the Hood
The 2019 Kia Sportage comes with the choice of either a 181-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder or a 240-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged engine. That means it has the performance to tackle school drop-offs, everyday commutes, and weekend camping trips alike. A 6-speed automatic transmission delivers smooth shifting, and the available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system ensures you have the optimal grip you need where the rubber meets the road.
You can easily stay on top of important information with the Kia UVO eServices system. With a press of a finger on the touch-screen, you can schedule maintenance visits, receive emergency assistance, and access data related to your driving habits.
With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, you can connect your smartphone to the touch-screen display to receive text messages, play your favorite playlists, or navigate to your destination.
The Sportage offers cozy seating for five. Its 60/40-split rear seats can be folded down to produce up to 60.1 cu. ft. of cargo space. If your hands are full when you reach the rear of the vehicle, the Sportage will sense the key in your pocket and open the available Smart Power Liftgate®.
Kia Drive Wise
Driving is much easier and safer when you have an extra set of eyes out there with you. Kia Drive Wise is a suite of safety features that help you remain protected from the unexpected while you navigate city streets, highways, and back roads.
Using a windshield-mounted camera, the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) keeps an eye on the position of the Sportage in your driving lane. If it detects veering toward the outside of the lane without the use of the turn signal, the system will deliver audible and visual warnings.
When you’re ready to leave for your destination, getting out of a parking spot can be a bit tricky. That’s why every Sportage model comes equipped with a Rear-Camera Display. When you shift the SUV into reverse, you’ll be able to view what is behind the vehicle.
Additional available Kia Drive Wise features include:
- Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
- Blind-Spot Detection (BSD)
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
- Front and Rear Parking Assist System
- Dynamic Bending Light (DBL)
- High-beam assist (HBA)
