What’s Inside the 2019 Sportage?

Performance is a big factor when it comes to picking out the right SUV. Luckily, the Sportage has options for drivers who are looking for more power. While the fuel-efficient 2.4L engine is a superb choice, the turbocharged 2.0L engine provides more power for a greater towing capacity. This option is better for drivers who want to tow heavy loads on the back, such as a boat, ATVs, a camper, or whatever you like to bring along.

Another strong component of the Sportage is its 10 year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, more than the 5 year/60,000 miles offered by Honda. This is about more than just covering you if something happens under the hood. It’s meant to exploit the confidence Kia has in their engineers and the durability of each Sportage that rolls off the lot.

You really need to come in and see the 2019 Sportage for yourself. It has so much to offer in terms of exterior aesthetics, performance, technology, and more. Schedule a test drive on our website today for a firsthand look at what the 2019 Sportage can do for you!
