When you’ve found yourself interested in a new automobile, you’ll want to find an option that not only provides great performance but does so consistently. One option that will provide this kind of reliability is the Kia Sportage.
Could the Sportage be the ride for you on the streets near Novi, Livonia, and Southfield, MI? Find out in this piece from our team at Feldman Kia, where we’ll cover the Kia Sportage reliability.
One area you’ll need to perform great, drive in and drive out, is the powertrain working under the hood. For the Sportage, you’ll find a configuration that does just that, starting with the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This type of balanced performance will have you ready to tackle just about anything the local roadways throw at you.
This engine is mated to an Electronically Controlled 6-Speed Automatic Transmission Overdrive with Sportmatic®. This transmission will work to provide seamless and efficient gear shifting, optimizing performance in various key areas such as fuel efficiency. Here, you’ll find the Sportage earns an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG, consistently keeping you away from the pumps.1
As if the performance put on so far was not enough, the Kia Sportage also comes ready to tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly configured. Having this on your side, you’ll be ready to head out on just about any adventure with the peace of mind knowing your Kia SUV has you covered from a performance standpoint.
Also important to the reliable performance of the Sportage are the safety and driver assistive features included. Of course, you’ll get the standard safety features like airbags, seatbelts, and more. Though, you will also get more advanced safety features.
For instance, the Traction Control System and Electronic Stability Control will work together to provide you with premium traction on the roadways you can count on, despite the everchanging weather conditions accustomed to Michigan residents. You can even pair these with an available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive System to enhance your ability to handle adverse road surfaces.
The Kia Sportage also comes with a Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keeping Assist, a Lane Departure Warning, a Driver Attention Warning, and an available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert Warning.
