The 2020 Kia Sportage Is Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car Of The Week!
The 2020 Kia Sportage has gone through considerable upgrades and restorations for this year such as a new and trendy front and rear design, added driver-assist technologies, and a new S level trim. This compact also went through some renovations throughout the cabin like a new steering wheel, a standard 8-inch touchscreen, and optional leather seats.
What remains to be business as usual is that the Sportage continues to put on the charm for buyers with its inexpensive prices, excellent 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and liberal amount of both standard and optional features. All of these prizes, in addition to its highly efficient available 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is exactly why the 2020 Kia Sportage LX is Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car Of The Week!
Engine and Drive
The 2020 Sportage uses a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine which has an adequate amount of 181 horsepower. The second option is the available and far more impressive 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which spurts out 240 horsepower. Each model offers the front-wheel or all-wheel-drive, though the 6-speed automatic only transmission available.
In terms of the drive it would seem like getting the Sportage SX model would be the only way to get value but the 2.4-liter actually provides more than enough power and also has far better fuel economy. However, if you have an undying need for speed, then the SX is certainly your best bet. Additionally, the electric-assist has a light and natural feel that makes for a very enjoyable ride.
According to the company, the 2020 Sportage stays in line with its “Euro-focused” style, but still rocks some noticeable changes. Starting off, the front shows off a new grille, bumper, air intake and skid plate. The rear flaunts a reworked bumper and skid plate, allied with tail lights and exhaust for the new trim. Also new are the alloy wheels, which are available in sizes of 17-,18-, and 19-inches.
Interior and Features
On the inside of the Kia’s latest SUV, most will find that it’s quite easy to get comfortable, owing to the support from the seats, especially with the heated rear seats on higher trims. Furthermore, controls are strategically placed for the driver and the red backlighting allows them to see the instrument panel much easier. Backseat passengers will find their seats to be quite plentiful in its amount of legroom, and even more comfortable with its ability to recline. There is plenty of space for small personal items through cubbies and storage areas. Cargo space is also reliable for Costco lovers, as it has 30.7 feet of cargo space.
Furthermore, Kia has a wide range of standard features starting off with the 8-inch touch screen, air conditioning, Normal, Sport and Eco driving modes, emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and automatic high-beam assist which are all featured on every trim. The new Sportage S brings on paddle shifters, 18-inch wheels, power-folding rear view mirrors, roof rails, a black headliner, and leather seating surfaces. The EX trim gifts buyers with heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and genuine dashboard stitching, while the SX Turbo comes with leather seats, navigation, a heated steering wheel, and sport-tuned suspension.
The EX also comes with LED headlights and taillights and a dual exhaust, plus stainless-steel sport pedals, a 320-watt stereo, an electronic parking brake and front and rear parking sensors. At the same time, the S and SX Turbo models include a flat-bottom steering wheel.
