The small but daring 2015 Kia Sportage!

From the Outside (Part I)

 

Jumping into a Kia evokes practicality and sportiness and this 2015 Kia Sportage with all the extensive revisions it undergone, adds to these features eye-catching styling; powerful engines, particularly the turbo engine in the SX trim; sporty handling; good value and generous warranty. This 2015 Kia Sportage presents itself as a physically small version full-size SUV to catch the eyes of the growing number of buyers and asserts its agreeability by combining the practicality of the sport-utility body style with the more civilized ride and handling qualities of a passenger car.

Looking for more than carlike abilities you should head for the turbocharged four-cylinder engine on the SX trim level, in particular, that is a real projection for what the Kia name implies by offering a nimble handling and strong engine, thanks to its 260 horsepower. On the other hand and on other trim levels, this 2015 Kia Sportage using the same suspension that makes the Sportage fun to drive also creates a ride quality that may be a little too firm but it's something to keep in mind if you routinely chauffeur older kids around town or load up bulky gear for weekend camping trips.

 

External Features

Acting as a good bridge between crossovers and sporty hatchbacks, this 2015 Kia Sportage welcomes its commuters with its sleekly detailed shape. This 2015 Kia Sportage is an especially good-looking crossover, with neat, trim proportions and a far rakish profile. In overall appearance the 2015 Kia Sportage’s overall proportions are reminiscent of European hot hatches, so you can rush for its high stance and pursuit those nudges to its external look.

There's some tipped-back attitude on loan from this soul five-door 2015 Kia Sportage, evident in the roofline, and Kia's family grille is of course present, with headlights tucked in seamlessly along its sides. The front end is particularly crisp, with a sort of elegant simplicity in the way the headlights and spoiler play with the reverse-bowtie blacked-out grille. The light sculpturing down its flanks makes the Sportage’s straight lines look even better in relief, too.

 

Engine levels: Their Specs, Abilities and Options

The 2015 Kia Sportage is available with two different four-cylinder engines, the LX and EX models. The LX and EX models come with a 2.4-liter version that produces 182 hp and 177 pound-feet of torque. The SX model gets a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that cranks out 260 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque and allows it to sprint from zero to 60 mph in a quick 6.5 seconds. Both engines come mated to a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available as an option.

EPA fuel economy estimates for the front-drive LX and EX are 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highways). Adding all-wheel drive drops this number to 22 mpg combined (19 city /26 highways). The turbocharged SX model returns EPA estimates of 23 mpg combined (20 city/26 highways) with front-wheel drive and 21 mpg combined (19 city/24 highways) with all-wheel drive.

 

Performance

Having a punchy turbocharged power train in the portfolio of this 2015 Kia Sportage helps it to stand superior in terms of power, while the base non-turbo also four-cylindered is pleasant enough and returns good fuel economy. The tradeoff, of course, is a ride quality that some buyers may find a little too harsh for their taste. You won't go wrong with either engine, the standard 2.4-liter engine that powers LX and EX models has more than enough power to feel zippy in daily driving. But it might be hard to resist the charms of the SX, as its 260-hp turbocharged mill delivers impressively quick acceleration.

That 2.4-liter base engine, included on EX and LX trims, produces 182 hp. It uses direct injection both to maximize output and manage fuel use. It feels plenty perky with the standard six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive, although the all-wheel-drive version can feel a bit taxed. Choosing the Sportage SX specifies a turbocharged 2.0-liter four, and lifts output to a healthy 260 hp. That's more than enough to overpower the front wheels a few rotations before the traction control cuts in on the dance. With the turbo also comes a set of shift paddles, for more natural driving response.
