Kia Sportage 2013 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – The Kia Sportage slips easily into the latter group, like a size 7 foot into a Nike cross trainer. It packs convenience and features into a body that’s as much a hatchback as it is a trim little utility vehicle, and offers all wheel drive for the few who really need it and the significantly higher number of people who’ll pay for it when they really don’t. Bigger than in its first run around the neighborhood, the second-generation Sportage is still on the compact end of its class, and relatively unchanged for the 2013 model year, while it takes on other incumbents like the Chevy Equinox and Hyundai Tucson, as well as newer entries like the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V.

Kia Sportage 2013 Interior and Exterior :
Kia Sportage 2013 Interior and Exterior. – With its wider footprint, the Sportage delivers more interior space than its ancestors, but it’s still on the smaller side of crossovers. The front seats benefit from the relatively high dash, and have good leg and shoulder room. As usual, add a sunroof, subtract headroom. The seats themselves are well-shaped and can be air cooled on high line Sportages. The back seat’s like that in the Tucson bigger adults will slouch a bit to find a good seating position perched on the otherwise nicely angled cushions. Cargo space measures 26.1 cubic feet, more than some luxury utes, and the rear end styling means more of the cargo space is hidden behind sheetmetal great for valuables, not so great if you carry pets often.

Moving up to more expensive models adds features like keyless start, satellite radio, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio and phone controls, and a USB port.

Major options include leather upholstery, seat heaters, a cooled driver seat; and finally UVO, Kia’s version of the Microsoft voice controller sold by Ford as SYNC.

Opt for the turbocharged SX and the Sportage’s output rises to a breathy 260 hp, enough to spin the front wheels a little before traction control mellows out the party, and the automatic gets shift paddles for less distracted driving and better response. All-wheel drive is an option across the board, and comes with a differential lock that splits power 50:50 at speeds up to 25 mph. Gas mileage ranges from 22/32 mpg with the front drive four cylinder, to 20/27 mpg with the SX AWD. Source: thecarconnection.com, autocarrelease.com.
