2010 Kia Sportage Overview.

Though the Kia Sportage SUV was first launched in 2005, it went through a series of modifications last year to enhance the drivability, fuel economy and styling. Hence, with the 2010 Kia Sportage SUV, there isn’t much to expect, except a few changes here and there. The latest 2010 Kia Sportage SUV has two trims in base and EX and an optional all-wheel drive. The transformations integrated from last year include a new grille design, body color-matching front and rear bumpers, new alloy wheels, fog lights and new headlamps. Nevertheless, the Sportage has maintained the same essential shape that it has had over the years.

The 2010 Kia Sportage SUV Reviews:

The 2010 Kia Sportage SUV has been launched this year in two trim levels of base and EX and has the optional all-wheel drive. The SUV looks impressive with its basic shape unchanged yet under the hood; users get to choose between either the fuel efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder-engine with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) Technology and a decent 140 HP on tap, or the 2.7-liter V-6 engine with 173 HP.

The 2010 Kia Sportage SUV is great value for money within its class and provides solid driving dynamics; expensive materials and styling that can give many other compact SUVs of its class a big complex! The cherry on the cake however is affordability and low price when compared to its rivals and the 2010 Kia Sportage SUV offers a big bundle of warranties too.

The Style and Statement that the 2010 Kia Sportage SUV makes along with its neatly arranged interiors and many other regular features make it value for money, however; many feel that the underpowered base engine sticks out like a sore thumb and its general value is also destabilized by its fuel economy, which makes it the usual run of the mill for its class. Though it is not in the league with other compact SUVs, the 2010 Kia Sportage SUV does create a niche for itself with its highly responsive steering and handling abilities, stylish and roomy interiors and an extensive powertrain warranty.
Styling, Trims and Other Options:

The 2010 Kia Sportage SUV is offered in two trims of LX and EX and both have the option of a front or all-wheel drive.

The base level LX is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, flip-up rear window which automatically opens the liftgate, rear privacy glass and keyless entry. On the inside one can find regular features like air-conditioning (except for the four-cylinder base model) complete power accessories, six-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with satellite radio capability, cloth upholstery, cruise control and auxiliary audio/ USB input jacks.

Moving a little higher with the EX SUV model and one can get 17-inch wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a trip computer, a sunroof, upgraded cloth upholstery, rear cargo area cover and heated outside mirrors. The EX SUV can be adorned with a Luxury Package that provides extra features like leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and an upgraded stereo with six-disc CD changer. An optional stand-alone navigation system is also being offered with the EX SUV models.

  • Extended powertrain warranty.
  • Great Value for Money!
