2020 KIA Sportage: an Easy -- and Smart -- Choice


The KIA brand is known for its great value. That has less to do with the price (though that doesn't hurt) than it does with what's inside -- a long list of excellent standard and optional features, backed by one of the best warranties in the business. Rather than a sacrifice, it feels like you're treating yourself, especially when you buy or lease a 2020 KIA Sportage SUV from Sames KIA.

2020 KIA Sportage Details

With other new KIA SUVs coming in for redesigns last year, this year the 2020 KIA Sportage gets its turn. There's a new S trim, a sporty facelift for the exterior, and a new steering wheel and available leatherette inside.

This is one of the few SUVs in its class where the base engine doesn't feel like a base engine. The turbocharged mill found in the SX trim -- with its best in class horsepower -- merely sweetens the pot.

Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup, with Dynamax AWD available. Power is routed through a smooth and capable six-speed automatic transmission. Cargo space is ample, starting at 30.7 cubic feet and topping out at 60.1 cubic feet with the seats down.

2020 KIA Sportage Safety and Special Features

Safety ratings are pending for the KIA Sportage, but if past is prologue, we expect high marks. Emergency braking (with pedestrian protection), lane-keep assist and automatic high-beam assist are standard across all trims, but other driver-assist features (like parking sensors) are relegated to the upper trims.

That's a pattern that holds true with other special features as well. The new 8-inch touch screen that's the centerpiece of the redesigned interior is standard, but other bits and bobs -- LED headlights, the rich sound of a Harmon/Kardon sound system, for instance -- are options on lower trims and standard further up the ladder (your Laredo KIA dealer will walk you through the many other great features on offer).

Buying a 2020 KIA Sportage

If it's a midsize crossover you're after, the 2020 KIA Sportage is worth the trip. If, on the other hand, you need something different -- a larger SUV, say, or a compact sedan -- you should probably visit 6621 San Dario Ave in Laredo, TX, anyway. The inventory at Sames KIA is diverse enough to offer something for practically every need and taste. Take your test drive today!
