Wherever your adventures take you, the Sportage is ready to handle the bumps along the way. Its Iso-Structure™ delivers rigidity. Along with extended body insulation and other features, this creates a smoother, quieter ride for the driver and passengers alike.
Available on all 2018 Sportage trims, the Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system senses and adjusts traction requirements for changing road and weather conditions.
Nimble handling and impressive power converge with surprising fuel-efficiency. Take your pick from two four-cylinder engines: the LX and EX come standard with a high-output 2.4-liter engine that is among the segment leaders, while the SX Turbo model gets an even more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. And the 6-speed automatic transmission delivers a smoother, more efficient ride.
Upgraded and unforgettable, the striking good looks of the Sportage begin with its front exterior. Elongated headlights sweep back gracefully into the body, perched above a distinctive tiger-nose grille and available quad LED fog lights that invite adventure.
Available Dynamic Bending Light (DBL) helps illuminate the road as you drive around curves and corners.
The sporty, bold character of the Sportage expresses itself to the very end, culminating in the dashing, sculpted lines of the rear exterior.
