Release date

The 2015 Kia Sportage release date is unannounced by Kia officially, but we believe that this car will come in the end of this year as 2015 model year. The starting MSRP which offered starts from $21,750 until $29,600 based on your chosen trims. The standard model has a 2.4 Liter direct injection in-line four engine. It makes a 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. It mated with six-speed automatic engine. You absolutely have no quick-shifting for this gearbox but smooth handling is the best for 2015 Kia Sportage. All-wheel drive is appropriate as long as this is a SUV although Kia called this crossover as CUV. The high trim SX has a turbocharged engine which pumped out 260 horsepower and powerful mid-range torque at 269 pound-feet. It is enough to move the front wheels plus automatic shift paddles in order to help you get less distraction and of course best response ever while driving. There are six trims available which two variants of all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive systems; they are 2WD 4dr LX, AWD 4dr LX, 2WD 4dr EX, AWD 4dr EX, 2WD 4dr SX and AWD 4dr SX.


The 2015 Kia Sportage review will start from the interior. We must say that the weaknesses or minus points of Sportage’s interior are cabin noise and the ride quality. Kia actually gave an effort to solve this with more noise insulation as same as high-performance dampers on the 2015 Kia Sportage and hopefully it will work properly. Another disturbing feature on the outgoing model of Sportage is about the heavy and far electric power steering. Then, Kia introduce us the new multi-mode Flex Steer system. Therefore, you are able to choose one of the three levels of steering weight. The cargo capacity of 2015 new Sportage is 26.1 cubic feet. It makes you cannot feel the better legroom instead. The seats are for five passengers and it clothed with standard materials but comfortable. Overall, the main weakness is on the legroom with limited capability. The exterior is very good or the most stylish one. You can see someone smile when you are in front of this compact crossover. It looks more aggressive than its predecessors, thanks to the larger wheels and beautiful muscular design of this car.
