The 2019 Kia Sportage features awe-inspiring state-of-the-art technology as standard equipment. Innovations for the ultimate in convenience, entertainment, and driver assistance turn driving the Sportage into pure pleasure.
For your convenience, the Sportage LX has illuminated remote keyless entry. The EX adds windshield wiper de-icer for those cold morning starts, and remotely activated approach lights with door handle pockets that light up for easy access in the dark.
If your hands are full, the available hands-free liftgate gives you easy access to the rear cargo area. The push-button ignition will get you started without fumbling for your keys and, once you’re on the road, the available paddle gear shifters give you fingertip control of the transmission. The steering wheel has cruise and audio controls as well as buttons for hands-free calling.
The Sportage gives you a world of entertainment and connectivity. The LX has a 5-inch touch screen with Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling and media streaming. The six-speaker audio system features satellite radio, a CD player, USB port, and there are three 12-volt power outlets.
The EX trim gets you a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration, and an additional USB charging port for rear seat passengers. You’ll also get access to Kia’s UVO eServices app which provides you with many services directly from your phone. Roadside assist, vehicle diagnostics, parking minder, and analytics of your driving habits are just a few of the accessible features.
The top-of-the-range SX offers an 8-inch touch screen and a premium eight-speaker surround sound Harman Kardon audio system with a 320W amplifier. You’ll get true, concert hall quality sound which will enable you to not only hear every note but to feel it too.
To enhance your driving experience, the Sportage has many safety and assistance features as standard equipment. Cruise control allows you to concentrate on your driving while the car takes care of your speed. Automatic headlights make sure that you’ll always be seen and not left in the dark. Your tires are your only connection to the road, and the tire pressure sensors let you know as soon as there’s a loss of pressure. When you’re backing up, you’ll always know what’s behind you with the standard rear-view camera.
Stepping up to the EX and SX trims brings you additional safety features which, although they are like having another pair of eyes, are no substitute for safe and responsible driving. EX offers blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.
The SX has adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and automatic braking, lane departure warning system, automatic high beams, an auto dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, and electronic parking brake with auto hold. Inside, you get a 4.2-inch driver information color LCD display and a navigation system with voice control.
Many of the standard features on higher spec trims are available with optional packages on the other trims. To experience the technological features of the 2019 Kia Sportage for yourself, head down to Kia of Lincoln for a closer look.
