The Sportage styling is bold and messy. The establishment is brave and planted. The Grill is pronounced and the pillar is swept back. The design works because it is simple, unlike rivals who are trying too hard to be tense. Clarity is refreshing.
With a shorter wheelbase of 105.1 inches and an overall length of 176.4 inches with a short overhang, it somehow looks longer than rivals, even with high beltlines and a thick roof pillar.
The LX wheels are 17 inches, ex wheels are not too shabby at 18 inches, and SX Turbo is a stylized wheel at 19.
2021 KIA Sportage SX Turbo Interior
The instrument panels are also neat, predominantly on ex and SX by large, bright touch screens and compartments of glossy black plastic. It’s skewed towards the driver and laid out well. The dashboard is divided horizontally, with the upper half for the gauge and the Infotainment, the lower half for the rest.
Despite the expensive options at LX, UVO Infotainment systems have a simple interface, and the larger touchscreen has a high resolution.
The front of the seats has a nice, comfortable contour for long distances. Fabrics in LX look durable. The driver seat can be adjusted in six ways, with optional 10-Way adjustments on the LX and standard on EX and SX, which also has skins available.
The back seat is just a bench that is technically three seats, but comfortable only two. Sportage offers 30.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and 60.1 cubic feet when folded. Low cargo floors, and high open tailgate power, make things easy and flexible. Extensive lethal sound and acoustic glass make the cab very quiet for a crossover.
2021 KIA Sportage SX Engine
The 2.4-liter engine in LX and ex delivers regular acceleration, with its 181 horsepower and 175 pound-foot torque. It’s quiet but also quiet, with a soft growled just entering the cabin.
Most of the time our seats are in SX Turbo, the 2.0-liter turbo-4 delivers 240 horsepower and an awesome 260 pound-foot torque.
Although the handling can not be called sporty, by the crossover standard the Sportage likes curved roads. It rides well, without much hardness, especially the LX with a softer tire-sidewall on 17-inch wheels.
SX Turbo has different cornering characters – confident and predictable, precise and footed – with revised shock, firmer springs, and slightly modified steering settings.
