2022 Kia Sportage - Rowe Kia Auburn

The Kia Sportage continues the Kia heritage of tech-savvy versatility that ensure modern comfort and connectedness. The 2022 Kia Sportage provides drivers with a sporty and versatile compact SUV that features a new Nightfall Edition trim level, a standard bundle of driver assistance features, and a long, long list of interior features. If you're in the market for a new SUV that manages to combine classic reliability and modern versatility, then the 2022 Kia Sportage is an excellent model to consider. The 2022 Kia Sportage is available in four trim levels: LX, Nightfall Edition, EX, and SX Turbo.

 


Performance

The latest model year of the Kia Sportage features two gas engine options, available all-wheel drive, and a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. The base iteration of the Kia Sportage is powered by a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that manages 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. If you're after a bit more power, then there's an available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that manages 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both engines offer drivers a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The new Kia Sportage offers up to 2,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity,

 

Interior

The base LX trim of the Kia Sportage comes to drivers with a wide variety of tech, comfort, and safety features. Many other SUVs require upgrades to achieve what the Kia Sportage offers up as standard. The LX trim comes outfitted with air conditioning with rear vents, remote keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, dual illuminated sun visor vanity mirrors, Tricot cloth seat trim with YES Essentials Fabric Treatment, and heated front seats. If you're interested in increasing interior comfort for your daily trip to Planet Fitness, then the Nightfall Edition might be a good trim to check out. The Nightfall Edition trim level includes SynTex seat trim, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support adjustment, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather wrapped shift knob, and leatherette door armrest coverings. If the Nightfall Edition doesn't meet your comfort and convenience needs, then the EX or SX Turbo might. The EX slots in as the second highest trim level, offering up nifty features like LED interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, leather-trimmed seats, and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat with 17-step recline. Now, if you're after the most luxuriously equipped version of the 2022 Kia Sportage, then the SX Turbo trim is for you. The SX Turbo trim comes with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters, heated/ventilated front seats, leather-trimmed seats, a heated steering wheel, a flat-bottom sport steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

 

Technology

The Kia Sportage wouldn't be a modern SUV without all the latest in automotive technology features. Even the base LX trim level of the Kia Sportage helps ensure that drivers can stay connected and entertained while on the go. The base Kia Sportage LX trim comes outfitted with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, a 6-speaker audio system, and a 12-volt power outlet. Stepping to the Nightfall Edition trim takes things a bit further by adding in a UVO link infotainment system, SiriusXM satellite radio, voice recognition, and wireless phone charging. Technology features stay about the same until the top-level SX Turbo trim, which adds a Harman/Kardon premium audio system while also including an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display with UVO link and Siri Eyes Free.

 

Safety

If you've ever driving around Auburn, then you likely know how busy traffic can be at times. The 2022 Kia Sportage ensures modern driving confidence that can help with taking on busy streets like Joline Dr or Stetson rd. The Kia Sportage comes standard with a whole bundle of driver assistance features. The Kia Sportage LX trim comes outfitted with forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, and high beam assist. The Nightfall Edition trim comes standard with the same set of driver assistance features as the LX trim while also adding in a few additional features. The Nightfall Edition also includes rear cross traffic collision warning and blind spot collision warning. The EX and SX Turbo trim levels add in smart cruise control with stop/go.
