The Kia Sportage has received mixed reviews for the past years. This is one of their car segments where Kia is mostly downtrodden and bashed by car enthusiasts. This car manufacturer is trying to turn heads by making it more interesting with their new SX model. Revisions have been done on its exterior to catch up with the current trend of crossovers that are being released today. They also fitted a meaner engine for a more aggressive driving.
This is the high performance model featuring a modified front grille, an all new side skirts and the rear reveals a sporty dual exhaust system. This stands on a sleek styled 18 inch alloy wheels. There are minor revisions done inside the cabin and this includes a new instrument cluster and aluminum door sills.
This is powered by a 2.0 liter GDI engine turbocharged to produce 256 bhp with 264 lb ft of torque. The heart is mated to a six speed automatic transmission and allows the Sportage SX to have an estimated fuel economy rating of 21 mpg city and 25 mpg highway on all wheel drive mode.
To have a more athletic performance on the road they have installed a sport tuned suspension with modified struts.
