What You Will Like

The Kia Sportage competes in the increasingly popular compact SUV class, amongst vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V. More and more, buyers are opting for small SUVs in place of more traditional family sedans. Vehicles like the Kia Sportage feature increased off-road and all-weather abilities without paying huge penalties in fuel economy, space or comfort. Unlike full-sized SUVs, the Sportage is relatively easy to park in the city. The 2018 Sportage starts at around $24,000 with a standard equipment list strong enough for even the most skeptical buyer.

What's New For 2018

The Kia Sportage was all-new for 2017 so predictably this year it's mostly carried over from its extensive redesign last year. Notably the base model LX can now be equipped with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear traffic alert and outside turn signals as a part of Kia's Technology Package. This luxury now comes standard on all EX and SX models.

Introduction

The Kia Sportage compact crossover exudes a sporty character, led by its distinctive design but augmented by sharp handling and a turbocharger option.

Redesigned for the 2017 model year, the Sportage sees only minor revisions for 2018. Vital safety technology, including autonomous emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring, is more broadly available on 2018 Sportage models.

The 2018 Kia Sportage comes in three trim levels: LX, EX, and SX Turbo.

Each is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Biased toward the front wheels, the all-wheel-drive system is fully automatic, needing no input from the driver. Like most crossovers in its category, the Sportage promises no off-roading credentials.

Sportage LX and EX versions hold a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, rated to deliver 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. In the SX Turbo, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder produces 240 horsepower (237 hp with all-wheel drive) and 260 pound-feet. Either way, a 6-speed automatic is the sole transmission.

Kia has a long tradition of offering well-equipped vehicles for the price, and the Sportage carries on that standard.

A rearview camera is standard. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts are standard on Sportage EX and SX Turbo. Technology Packages with modern safety features, including autonomous emergency braking and lane-departure warnings, are available for LX and EX trim levels, standard on Sportage SX Turbo.

Ratings of Good for each crash-test performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety resulted in designation of the 2018 Kia Sportage as a Top Safety Pick when fitted with emergency braking.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has rated the Sportage at five stars overall and for the side-impact crash, but just four stars for frontal collision and rollover crash protection (the latter a calculated figure, not based on testing).

Lineup

Sportage LX ($23,600) has front-wheel drive and the 2.4-liter engine. Standard equipment includes a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, basic 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, six-speaker audio, Bluetooth, 17-inch alloy wheels, power windows and locks, and air conditioning. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $990 destination charge.)

All-wheel drive is optional ($1,500) on all models.

Sportage EX ($26,400) adds 18-inch alloy wheels, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, leather upholstery, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, 7.0-inch touchscreen, foglamps, and heated power-folding mirrors. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is included.

Sportage SX Turbo ($32,900) substitutes the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, adding a sport-tuned suspension. Standard features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, parking sensors, paddle shifters, 19-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, and power tailgate.

Walkaround

More than most compact crossovers, the Sportage relies on a swoopy design and a sporty nature. Some consider its bold styling excessive. A relatively long wheelbase and short overhangs gives it a feisty appearance.

The front ends are slightly different on all-wheel-drive models, which have greater ground clearance.

SX Turbos flaunt the most dressed-up look, helped by 19-inch alloy wheels. Slim taillights are tied together by a refined chromes strip. A red panel connects LX and EX rear lamps.

Interior

Within the classy, reasonably roomy Sportage cabin, soft-touch plastics mix with helpful ergonomics, resulting in a sense of high quality, even in basic LX models.

Fabric upholstery in base LX trim is appropriate, if not noteworthy. EX and SX Turbo trim levels move up to leather. Soft-feel surfaces appear on both the dashboard and front doors.

Front seats provide good support. Headroom and knee clearance are satisfying up front and in the outboard rear seats. Out back, a third passenger shouldn’t feel too squeezed, at least for short trips.

Cargo space totals almost 31 cubic feet behind the second row, expanding to 60.1 cubic feet with seatbacks folded. Low liftover height eases luggage loading.

On the cleanly laid-out, driver-oriented dashboard, controls sit within easy reach. Split into upper and lower halves, the dashboard is slightly canted, helping the driver focus on gauges.

Three infotainment screens are available. Clear, high-resolution 7.0- and 8.0-inch touchscreens don’t wash out on sunny days. Kia’s UVO infotainment operates better than most, and is easy to navigate.

Outward visibility is impeded by thick roof pillars and a high beltline.

Driving Impressions

Ride comfort and handling prowess are Sportage strong points. LX editions with 17-inch tires yield the softest ride, but the EX is only a tad stiffer. SX Turbos ride on firmer springs, with different dampers. Steering is set up slightly differently, too, giving the SX a distinctive character.

Handling confidently and predictably, unlike some competitors, the Sportage shows minimal sloppiness. By compact crossover standards, at least, the Sportage feels sure-footed through curves and corners. Steering offers a little more heft than is customary. LX and EX models feel well-planted, without being overly firm.

The Sportage is impressively quiet, thanks to extensive sound-deadening and acoustic glass.

With either engine, performance ranks above average. The basic 2.4-liter engine performs adequately, but cannot be called inspiring. Acceleration is more stirring with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, in the SX Turbo.

Kia’s all-wheel-drive system reacts swiftly on slippery surfaces, to improve grip by the rear tires. A special front bumper that provides slightly more ground clearance goes on AWD models, to help on snow-covered pavement.

The quiet base engine sends only a subdued growl into the cabin. Especially with all-wheel drive, fuel economy trails class-leading rivals. An LX with front-wheel drive is EPA-rated at 23/30 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops that estimate to an unimpressive 21/25/22 mpg. Slightly larger wheels cut EX figures to 22/29/25 mpg with front-wheel drive, or 21/25/23 mpg with all-wheel drive.

SX Turbos consume the most, EPA-rated at 21/26 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined, with front-wheel drive; and only 20/23/21 mpg with all-wheel drive.

Summary

The Kia Sportage is a competent crossover that stands out mostly for styling and value. It has a modestly sporty nature. The cabin feels like refined quality, and front seats promise long-trek comfort. Especially in SX Turbo form, the Sportage performs with a touch of gusto. Kia’s warranty is another plus.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
