The fully redesigned Kia Sportage is now on the streets and turning some heads and changing minds. People who are looking for a small crossover SUV are seriously checking out this stylish Sportage with the friendly folks at Round Rock KIA!
Owners of the new Kia Sportage are giving it rave reviews. They have nothing but great things to say about their Sportage and use that three letter word… FUN!
Compliments zero in on how it handles on the road, and how quiet and sturdy the ride is on all kinds of imperfections under its wheels. Many say it feels and looks like one of those expensive European small to medium SUV’s with its sexy body contours and LED lighting; even better than advertised. The Sportage’s bold restyling by the “smarty pants” Kia engineers really make this new Sportage stand out from the rest of the pack. Its grill has that “snarky” grin that seems to say, “let’s put the excitement and fun back in driving…I dare you”.
This new Sportage has also grown in length and wheel base, which makes for a much larger back seat and cargo area. The second row folds down to fit those bags of mulch or garage sale stuff. The Sportage’s suspension has also been reworked to smooth out rough roads with the revision of the electrically assisted steering. That really gives the driver a more confident feel behind the wheel.
Now, what may be powering you down the highways on your test drive is the standard peppy 2.4-liter four cylinder that delivers over 180 horses. The SX model has Kia’s tried and true 2.0-liter turbocharged four that pushes out 240 frisky horses and 160 lb-ft of asphalt gripping torque. Front wheel drive and a six-speed automatic with available paddle shifters are standard. The other solid choice for your test drive is the all-wheel drive setup; many owners with this system say they will always have that AWD in future cars.
Kia also gives you the choice of drive modes with Normal, Sport, and ECO. Many owners of this Sportage like to keep it in Sport as it brings more excitement to your drive times. The new Sportage’s cabin has also been updated and loaded with upscale materials and features. It is equipped with available high quality and tech superior systems that relate to entertainment, communication and a bunch of safety functions. Available goodies, especially with the SX model are leather, touch screen infotainment system, automatic emergency braking, a huge panoramic sunroof and much more.
Choosing the Kia Sportage is all good and one is waiting for your personal attention and evaluation in your favorite color and style at http://www.roundrockkia.com The bet is on that you will leave with a smile on your face, not only because you brought that “Fun Factor” back into your drive times, but for the great deal you received.
