2015 Kia Sportage exterior
What the greatest advantage of the 2015 Kia Sportage is actually comes down to its exterior design and look. It is an extremely good looking crossover vehicle with a rakish profile that does not compare with many of the cars in its line. The biggest fault for that is the vehicle’s front end which is graced with simplicity yet has enough style to dazzle ever driver. It still uses the same Kia family grille but has an updated headlight set which are seamlessly tucked away along the sides of the grille. The combination of a reverse-bowtie blacked-out grille at the front and a newly updated spoiler at the back make for a perfect mash for the car’s exterior look.
Down its flans you will see some down sculpturing which makes the Sportage’s straight lines look even straighter and make the car slimmer looking. The overall proportions of the car are actually equal to a standard European hatch model. But actually there is one big difference that makes this car more distinguishable than the numerous European hatches and that is its high stance. It gives it more power and attitude and makes it look fresh and when we combine a snubbed nose at the front it rejuvenates the vehicle even more. It will certainly appeal more to the youthful crowd and may seem to be one of the favorites for the younger people.
The inside of the Kia Sportage has a sporty tone to it. It does not only come equipped with many accessories but it has a variety of color sets that you can choose for the inside as well. You will notice first the rectangular dash that has been fitted with big gauges on it. Although the style has changed a bit, the space of the inside hasn’t. Well there could not be any other way that to change the shape of the car altogether in order to do that. Yet as the Sportage is lacking some space inside this does not make it a useless vehicle. It good shoulder and legs spacing at the front and headspace at the back and add some redesigned seats and you get a fully designed interior for the car.
The accessories are numerous and came as standard for all three trim levels of the Kia Sportage. Power windows and lock, keyless entry, tilt/telescope steering wheel, USB/iPod connectivity, keyless entry are all part of the standard equipment that comes introduced inside the vehicle. But if you want a satellite radio, steering-wheel audio and phone controls you will have to opt for a higher trim. on the other hand, A navigation system with UVO eServices comes available in the base LX trim and also in the EX and SX ones as well.
With the 2015 Kia Sportage you will have a choice between two four-cylinder engines, and with the option of adding all-wheel drive as well. The base version is the 2.4-liter direct-injection in-line four engine that can make about 182 horsepower. The best choice is to use the six-speed automatic gearbox with this option as it provides you with smooth and great shifting abilities. If you are opting for a turbocharged version found in the SX trim model, then you will have an added 260 horsepower to play with by using a turbocharged 2.0-liter four under your hood.
