2011 Kia Sportage US
I still think it looks fantastic. Not only compared to the previous model, but compared to anything else out there in its class.
Two models will be offered, LX and EX, and they will be both powered by the 2.4 Liter with 176hp
(The same smooth engine I am driving this week in the Forte SX)
6 speed manual or automatic are available on all versions.
The LX includes 16 inch wheels, cloth seats, power doors and locks, USB audio and Bluetooth.
The EX adds 18 inch wheels, more chrome, power seat, leather steering wheel and shift knob and a cooled glove compartment.
Options for the LX include 17 inch wheels and GPS.
While on the EX, you can order leather seats, rear sensors and a glass roof.
A 2.0L turbo engine (similar to the newly released Sonata Turbo) will become an option sometime after launch.
This all sounds really good…
