The Sportage was redesigned in 2011, so the 2012 version doesn't change too much. The LX now features slightly larger 17-inch wheels and the EX and SX models feature a premium audio system with HD radio and a subwoofer as well as the new UVO in-dash infotainment system.
Fuel efficiency; connectivity and entertainment features; spacious, versatile interior; ride quality and cabin refinement; strong warranty; value for the money
The recently redesigned Sportage has quickly become one of the leaders in its class of compact SUVs, thanks to its stylish design, generous feature set, connectivity and entertainment systems and strong value for the money. Despite its compact size, the new Sportage is of a size that's large enough for a growing family of four, yet it still fits into a compact-car parking space. The Sportage's 4-wheel drive system combines the best of both worlds with a real locking center differential as well as car-like on-road all-wheel drive finesse. Furthermore, Kia's 10-year warranty on powertrain components brings a peace of mind that's not matched by many other brands.
