Kia has sent ripples through the crossover SUV class of the automotive industry with its newest platform. Most automakers would have introduced a new model and simply carried over the rest of its lineup from the previous model year. That is simply an unacceptable way to do business in Kia’s eyes. The 2020 Kia Sportage in Carrollton, TX will be available later this year at the Classic Kia Carrollton showroom. As one of the manufacturer’s most popular models, engineers and designers knew they had a strong foundation to start with, but they were able to make several noticeable changes to the 2020 Sportage that will make it more appealing to more buyers. Classic Kia Carrollton customers can start the pre-ordering process for the 2020 Kia Sportage before it arrives today by calling, 866-559-8140.
The Kia Sportage has always had a distinctly European look since the first crossover SUV rolled off of the manufacturer’s assembly line. For the upcoming model year, the 2020 Kia Sportage offers redesigned headlights that can also be combined with available LED blinkers. Buyers can also choose trims of the 2020 Sportage with LED headlights and LED fog lights. Three sizes of wheels are available to future owners of the 2020 Sportage – depending on which version they choose to take home. Other new elements include a revised grille, bumper, air intake and skid plate. The rear bumper and rear skid plate have also been redesigned for the 2020 Kia Sportage. On the inside, upper trims can be outfitted with SOFINO leatherette upholstery and a wireless smartphone charging tray.
Future owners of the 2020 Kia Sportage will have a pair of power plant options to choose from when they’re shopping for the new crossover SUV. The base powertrain is a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine making 181 horsepower. A turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine also available with a peak output of 240 horsepower.
No modern crossover SUV can be successful without access to cutting-edge connectivity equipment. This will be most noticeable on the base LX trim of the 2020 Kia Sportage which is now equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen interface. Not only will the interface be easier to use, but it will also be compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
