Front-wheel Drive vs. All-wheel Drive
You can get the 2020 Sportage with traditional front-wheel drive, or you can opt for Dynamax™ all-wheel drive with Locking Center Differential. This system utilizes electronic sensors to monitor various road conditions and provide more traction when needed.
The standard engine powering the new Kia Sportage is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder. This engine is paired with an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission overdrive with Sportmatic® and serves up 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. FWD models achieve up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway while AWD variants yield up to 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*
SX Turbo power
When you opt for the 2020 Kia Sportage SX Turbo trim, you are instead treated to a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, still paired with the six-speed automatic transmission. Power output varies depending on whether you opt for FWD or AWD. FWD models crank out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque while AWD models manage 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, this engine also manages a 2,000-pound towing capacity.
