That’s not the only available engine though. On the top SX Turbo trim, comes a beautifully turbocharged monster. This 2.0-liter engine delivers up to 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque all while still getting up to 21-city mpg and 26-highway mpg.

AWD capability of the Kia Sportage

If you are looking for all-wheel drive, then the Sportage will deliver. Not only does this impressive Kia model offer AWD, but it also offers it at every trim level. This isn’t just any AWD system though. This is Dynamax All-Wheel Drive. With Dynamax AWD, you have a full-time system that continually monitors sensors so that it can adapt to the present road conditions. How cool is that?

Sportage feature highlights

If all that performance and capability wasn’t enough, the Sportage continues to deliver with a wide range of both available and standard features. Of course, you can expect to enjoy a fully-featured infotainment system.
