2011 Kia Sportage

2011 Kia Sportage Review

(3 Stars)  New look, new attitude

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Sportage has been Kia's small SUV since it was introduced in 1995. It was a small SUV, which could be taken off road and offered a lot of practicality at a great value. The early Sportages weren't really standouts however, but much of this was corrected after a three year hiatus to design the second generation Sportage. The second generation was bigger and more carlike with a total redesign that left it somewhat less at home off road and didn't do much to help the styling of the vehicle.

The 2011 Sportage addresses the styling issues and have greatly improved the looks of the vehicle. The newest Sportage promises a larger vehicle, with a more refined, car like ride. Its new four cylinder engine is more powerful than the outgoing engine and a still more powerful 2.0 liter, turbocharged version of the four cylinder will be following shortly. All of this and Kia promises that the new model will have further improved fuel economy despite being larger and more powerful than its predecessor.

A wide selection of interior amenities is also promised for the 2011 model.
