The 2019 KIA Sportage is a real standout in the highly competitive compact crossover segment.

Exterior – 2019 Kia Sportage
The exterior styling of the 2019 Sportage is well-proportioned and handsome. It starts with KIA’s familiar grille that’s bracketed by LED fog lights and plenty of chrome trim. On the SX model, you’ll get a decorative skid plate. Heated mirrors and roof rails are standard equipment on SX and EX models; they’re an available option on LX editions. Premium add-ons like power folding mirrors, panoramic sunroof, and an adjustable power lift gate are available on the EX and they’re standard on the top-tier model. On the SX, you will get adaptive HID headlights, chrome exhaust tips, and satin chrome trim. On all models, you’ll have a choice from seven unique exterior colors, such as Burnished Copper and Hyper Red. Battleground KIA is only a short drive from Winston Salem, so come and see these choices for yourself.
Interior – Kia Sportage near Winston Salem NC
KIA must be doing something right, because the experts are comparing the Sportage’s interior to those found on Audi vehicles. The cabin of the 2019 Sportage is well-crafted, and it’s filled with a blend of functional features and top-quality materials. The interior’s features and layout are unchanged from last year, which isn’t a bad thing, because the Sportage’s cabin is one of the top examples in the class. The optional UVO infotainment setup is both functional and attractive. It’s user-friendly, and it has a long list of optional and standard features. For 2019, the LX Popular package includes a 7-inch UVO touchscreen with smartphone integration through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Base models come with a five-inch touchscreen as standard equipment, but the EX comes with the aforementioned seven-inch unit. On the top-tier SX, you’ll find an eight-inch interactive display, Harman Kardon sound, and navigation built-in. KIA has paid enormous attention to detail as far as the user interface is concerned. Every touch function can be done with knobs and buttons, which will please our not-so-tech-savvy buyers. If this Winston Salem Buyers Guide didn’t answer your questions, we invite you to come to Battleground KIA, which is only a short drive from Winston Salem, to find out more.
Mechanical – Kia Sportage specs near Winston Salem
Along with an increase in power over past models, the 2019 Kia Sportage rolls on an upgraded suspension that stays smooth and quiet even at highway speeds. The chassis is stable and buttoned-down, with firm control and a highly compliant ride. Even the low-spec EX has a surprisingly athletic ride and accurate steering, as well as responsive brakes and more-than-adequate stopping distance.

Powertrain – Kia Sportage specs near Winston Salem NC
The 2019 Sportage line has two different engines: a 2.4L inline four and a turbo 2.0L inline four. Both powerplants are matched to a six-speed auto transmission and are available in all- or front-wheel drive. The 2.4L puts out 181hp and 175 lb. ft. of torque, while the turbo offers 240hp and 260 lb. ft. The transmission offers smooth shifts, and the turbocharged engine offers ample passing power and a 0-60 time of just 6.7 seconds.
Safety – 2019 Kia Sportage dealer
The 2019 Kia Sportage gets high marks in crash testing, having earned a five-star rating from the NHTSA as well as IIHS’ Top Safety Pick designation. It offers almost all the advanced driver assistance and safety features you’d find in a vehicle in this class. The most substantial update for 2019 is the rebalancing of active safety add-ons. In 2017, KIA did not offer the base model with any driver assistance features. However, this year, the Technology package includes rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, auto emergency braking, and lane departure warning. On the EX, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring are standard equipment.
