Performance

The 2020 Kia Sportage gives you a choice between two powertrains, both mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® and a front-wheel drivetrain. The base powertrain utilizes a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder to generate 181-hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and earn an estimated 30 mpg on the Texas highways and 23 mpg of city driving in Huntington, Crockett, and Livingston. Normal, Eco, and Sport driving modes come standard, and the Kia Sportage can manage a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. A 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI engine with paddle shifters churns out 240-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and is optional, along with a Dynamax™ all-wheel drivetrain.

The Kia Sportage has two spacious rows of seating for five providing a generous amount of head- and legroom. The second-row seats include a 17-step reclining feature for added comfort.
