The small but daring 2015 Kia Sportage!
Everything inside this 2015 Kia Sportage implies specialty that accompanies that sleek styling it possesses, for that 2015 Kia Sportage also gives you a handsome space with styling that gives it a somewhat bolder look than some of its more traditional competitors, an extensive list of standard features and options and a price tag that typically undercuts the compact crossover competition.
Inside everything you can find. This 2015 Kia Sportage is equipped with gauges, knobs, buttons and other controls that are thoughtfully laid out and easily set to use, especially the navigation system functions accessed via the 7-inch touchscreen. The one aesthetic downside here in this 2015 Kia Sportage is the extensive use of hard plastic throughout the cabin, that is offset by the fact that it's nicely textured and accented by well-placed padding in the places where it's needed most, like the armrest atop the center-console storage bin.
The feel of substantiality in this 2015 Kia Sportage stream to the seating, where the front seats offer good comfort and support, but the three-place rear bench is a different story. Legroom is in short supply in the second row and, though the reclining seatbacks are a plus, it would be nice to be able to slide the bench seat forward and back like those in competitive models.
This 2015 Kia Sportage is still considered sportier and roomier than other competitors in the market of equal caliber although cargo space in this 2015 Kia Sportage also is in short supply compared with other compact crossovers, with just 26.1 cubic feet behind the 60/40-split folding rear seats and only 54.6 cubic feet with both of those sections folded down. A handy divided organizer beneath the cargo floor is good for keeping the inevitable odds-and-ends like jumper cables handy but out of sight, but it can't make up for the cargo hold's overall space deficit, which can be as much as 15 cubic feet less than what's offered by rivals.
Although the back seats can feel cramped, the 2015 Kia Sportage does have good leg and shoulder room in front (subtract some headroom for the sunroof); and the seats themselves are well-shaped and can be air-cooled on high-line Sportages. They're supportive enough and offer adequate adjustment to stay comfortable on even longer rides. Those in back may be a little tight on headroom and find themselves slumped forward, but Kia at least keeps the kids comfortable with recently added rear air vents across all trim levels and its cargo space that measures 26.1 cubic feet, is more than some luxury brutes in the market, but it's a tall space without a particularly large cargo floor, so choose your luggage wisely.
What is well known up to now is that the 2015 Kia Sportage is a small crossover SUV with seating for five passengers. This five door SUV vehicle is offered in three trim levels: LX, EX and SX. Standard equipment on all three trim levels includes air conditioning; power windows, locks, and mirrors; a tilt/telescope steering wheel; keyless entry; 17-inch alloy wheels; Bluetooth phone; and USB/iPod connectivity.
The entry-level LX model's list of additional standard equipment that are also standard on upper levels include rear privacy glass, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seats, full power accessories, cruise control, audio connectivity and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio input jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.
Options on the LX include the Popular package (requires UVO eServices package) that adds side mirrors with built-in turn signals, roof rails, a rear spoiler, a trip computer and rear-seat center armrest. The UVO eServices package includes automatic headlights, a rearview camera and Kia's UVO telematics system.
Adding the EX Premium package gets you power-folding mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 7-inch touch-screen display and a navigation system.
The sportier SX model is equipped much like the EX, but tacks on a turbocharged engine, xenon headlights, daytime running lights and LED taillights, power-folding mirrors, keyless entry and ignition and the navigation system to its list of standard equipment. The SX Luxury option package includes a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The 2015 Kia Sportage has a very strong list of safety features that make the car ideal for family and occasional touring and this list includes dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock disc brakes; traction control and stability control front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and active front head restraints that are standard in all Sportage models. In addition, they have standard hill-start assist and downhill brake assist, which aid and abet all-traction capability.
Because of the significant blind spots inherent to the Sportage's design. we recommend the rear parking sensors and rearview camera here, which are packaged with the available UVO eServices system. Kia's latest version of its UVO telematics system, which is offered as an option on the base LX model and is standard on the rest of the lineup, includes emergency and roadside assistance, stolen vehicle tracking, geo-fencing and speed tracking (allowing parents to set limits for teen drivers) and other smart phone-enabled features accessed via the UVO app.
In government crash tests, the all-wheel-drive Sportage earned a top overall rating of five stars, along with five star ratings for both frontal- and side-impact protection. The front-drive Sportage received a four-star overall rating, but still managed to earn five stars in the frontal- and side-impact tests.
In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash testing, the Sportage received the highest rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. Its head restraints and seats also earned a "Good" rating for whiplash protection in rear impacts.
There's a plethora of interesting compact crossover sportive SUV model cars on the market but the striking 2015 Kia Sportage makes its mark in that crowded peer set and stands out as one of the best thanks to an excellent mix of good road manners, comfortable ride, and value for money and pleasing styling.
