2016 Kia Sportage get four stars from NHTSA


The 2016 Kia Sportage has been tested for safety by the U.S.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and received four stars overall
for the FWD and five stars for the AWD. The new model is expected in our
dealerships soon and this news will likely boost interest in what is an
excellent crossover.

The front wheel drive Sportage received five stars for the
front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test. The all-wheel
drive version received five stars overall, with five stars for the front and
side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

Already one of the better looking crossover SUVs, the 2016
Kia Sportage is only receiving small changes for the next model year. As the
platform itself is proving very successful, the main changes are feature
upgrades including new soft touch interior surfaces and technology features.

2016 Kia Sportage

The is a CUV that is proving very popular with buyers. With
much improved looks and driving dynamics, there is a lot to like about this
car. The design is modern and cutting edge but restrained and has wide appeal.
It looks new, has a nice profile and would look good on any drive.

The power behind the wheels is either a turbocharged
2.0-litre GDI four cylinder that produces 260 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque or a
2.4-litre GDI four that delivers 182 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Both use a six
speed automatic transmission to send power to the front or all wheels.

There three trim levels for the 2016 Kia Sportage, LX, EX
and SX. LX offers 17 inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, power everything, cruise
control, air conditioning, rear privacy glass, Bluetooth and six speaker CD

The EX adds 18 inch alloys, heated door mirrors, fog lights,
automatic climate control, cooled glovebox, heated front seats, upgraded
interior, leather steering wheel and Infinity audio.

taillights, power folding door mirrors, keyless entry and ignition and navigation
