2020 Kia Sportage Review
Its exterior design may let you know that the 2020 Kia Sportage is a car that’s ready for drivers who enjoy an active lifestyle. Once you step inside the Sportage, that truly becomes clear. This small SUV knows how to pack in the features for D’lberville, Gulfport, and Hattiesburg drivers.
The latest edition of this car is available right here at Pat Peck Kia. We look forward to seeing you here, whether you’re stopping in for your next Kia or checking one out for the first time.
Driving the Kia Sportage
No two drivers are alike. You may have a different style from the person driving the car next to you—and that’s what makes our experience on the roads unique. The Sportage gives you ways to customize your drive and truly make it feel like your own.
There are two engine choices, for instance. The 2.4L 4-cylinder engine produces 181 horsepower and feels peppy when you press down on the accelerator and head to your destination. If you do seek a bit more power, you’ll enjoy the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder. This turbocharged option delivers up to 240 horsepower, giving you that extra power you need out on the highway.
With Drive Mode Select technology, customize your drive even further. Choose from Normal, Eco, or Sport settings to match the mood you’re in.
A Welcoming Interior
The interior of the 2020 Sportage does a great job of making you feel at home. After all, when we get in our cars every day, we’re trying to find the place that feels like a home away from home. The standard cloth seats are comfortable, but the available leather seat trim gives the cabin a more luxurious feeling.
The cabin is designed for the driver with the large touchscreen right in the center stack, easily accessible climate control knobs, and available Push-Button Start all just a touch away.
The standard touchscreen measures in at eight inches, with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ coming as standard features. With this technology, you’ll have access to your text messages, saved playlists, and navigation functionality right on the 8-inch screen. With just a quick tap, you can respond to a friend, take a call, or choose that next song.
Kia Safety Features
The Sportage measures up well to the competition when it comes to standard safety technology. On the entry-level edition of this car, you’ll enjoy Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist. These features are constantly working to protect you while your eyes are laser-focused on the road. Even though you may have that laser focus, there are still things you might miss, and this tech can pick up on those things.
Beyond the standard features, the available Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning system scans for any cars or motorcycles passing by as you back up. This system will send a visual and/or auditory signal to let you know there may be an object not in your field of view.
