Powertrains & Performance
The 2018 Sportage offers two engine options that are sure to please. The first is the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and gets 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.
The second engine choice is only available on the SX Turbo, and is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This is also paired with a six-speed automatic and its output depends on the drivetrain option you’ve chosen. Front-wheel drive models put out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, while all-wheel drive models put out 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
Inside the cabin of the 2018 Sportage, you will find a modern, simple, stylish interior that will appeal to consumers across the board. This interior is only enhanced by the Sportage’s practicality. It has room for both passengers and cargo, thanks to the 31 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. When the rear seats are folded down, this space nearly doubles to 60 cubic feet, which means you can easily haul whatever you need around town.
Standard & Available Features
When you purchase the base Sportage trim, you will find a slew of standard features. This includes a rearview camera, Bluetooth®, an AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM® six-speaker audio system with a 5-inch touchscreen, and steering-wheel-mounted controls. As you move up the trim levels, you will find other features like Kia’s UVO infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen (8-inch touchscreen on the SX Turbo trim), heated front seats, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a Harman/Kardon® premium surround sound with Clari-Fi™.
