    2019 Kia Sportage OVERVIEW

    The 2019 Kia Sportage continues to offer euro-sporty styling and an impressive feature list. However, efficiency and value are lacking when stacked up next to its rivals.

    What's New for 2019

    The 2019 Kia Sportage receives no significant updates over last year’s model.

    Choosing Your Kia Sportage

    The Sportage is available in three trim levels: LX, EX, and SX Turbo.

    The Sportage, which last saw a full redesign in 2017, maintains a body that’s primarily formed with high-strength steel, utilizes an improved suspension layout, and features an interior that offers soft-touch materials and a stitched dash. With the goal of pushing the Sportage onward and upward in the marketplace, the compact crossover features a wide range of available features and thus price.

    A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is standard equipment on the base LX and mid-level EX. Delivering 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, this non-turbocharged engine comes standard with front-wheel drive and can be had with all-wheel drive across all trims for $1,500.

    The SX Turbo, as the name implies, receives a more powerful, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 240 hp and 260 lb-ft through the front wheels without having to rev the engine – peak figures are maintained from 1,450 to 3,500 rpm. The same advanced AWD system is also available at the same cost, while a six-speed automatic transmission is standard with either engine.

    Fuel economy figures vary with each trim level and drivetrain. The front-wheel-drive LX is the most efficient, achieving an EPA-estimated 23 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 combined. In comparison, the EX trim suffers one mpg in both city and highway driving. The AWD EX achieves 21/25/23 mpg (city/highway/combined), while the base LX gets 21/25/22 mpg.

    The SX Turbo drops these figures significantly. The FWD version achieves 21/26/23 mpg while the AWD SX Turbo gets 20/23/21 mpg. For comparison, Ford’s similarly powered turbocharged Escape achieves two mpg higher in the combined cycle.


    The base Sportage LX trim starts at $24,745 (all prices include the $995 destination charge) and comes with a basic level of modern comforts with a few standouts: 17-inch alloy wheels, a five-inch touchscreen for the six-speaker audio system that features XM radio, a tilt/telescope steering column, body-color mirrors and door handles, and, of course, a federally-mandated rearview camera.

    A single option package is available for the LX trim and many will consider it a worthy upgrade. The LX Popular Package ($1,200) brings Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to a seven-inch touchscreen with Kia’s UVO telecommunications services, heated front seats, a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat, stain resistant fabric treatment, dual-zone temperature control, windshield de-icer, solar control glass, and silver painted roof rails.


    Next in line is the EX trim. Priced from $27,595, it's $2,045 more expensive than the fully-optioned LX. For that extra dough, the EX comes equipped with all of the LX’s available features plus proximity entry, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, leather seating and steering wheel, 18-inch wheels, fog lights, and chrome exterior door handles. There are three option packages available with one that focuses on styling and the other two on features.

    The EX Sport Appearance Package ($990) gains a darker shade of gray color on the 18-inch wheels and satin chrome trim for the window trim, the front and rear bumpers, and along the body’s side sill. Especially noticeable at night, the LED “cube” fog lights, headlights, and rear taillights hint at the Sportage’s higher aspirations.

    Forgoing the appearance package allows the base EX to instead be upgraded with two packages consisting of several notable luxurious features. The EX Premium Package ($1,700) includes a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, LED interior lighting, and HomeLink connectivity. With the Premium Package selected, the EX Technology Package ($2,900) is then available. It comes with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, high beam assist, an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, a Harman/Kardon eight-speaker audio system, ventilated front seats, an eight-way power front passenger seat, a smart power liftgate, a spare tire, and proximity sensors to aid with parking.

    SX Turbo

    The top trim is the SX Turbo that starts at $34,095 and brings together the EX Appearance Package, the EX Technology Package, and, of course, the more powerful but less fuel-efficient turbocharged engine. Furthermore, the SX Turbo gains dynamic projector beam headlights, 19-inch wheels, dual chrome outlet exhaust finishers, and sees a 4.2-inch LCD display between the meter’s gauges. There are no packages available on the Sportage SX Turbo.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The 2019 Kia Sorento becomes pricey very quickly – automatic emergency braking requires breaking the $30,000 mark. Focusing on this car’s strengths, the EX with the Appearance Package brings out this car’s inner euro-sport styling and includes today's expected modern conveniences, making it a good stating point.
