The Sportage was the vehicle that helped Kia enter the tough US market. Since then, Kia has given the model a make-over and the result is a stylish 2011 Sportage. The NY Auto Show presents the all-new 2011 Sportage for the American market. Kia has announced that they are planning to come out with an improved Sportage Sport, but the regular model is still pretty impressive.
The model released in America has a 176 horsepower variable valve timing 2.4-liter inline-four with the choice of manual or automatic six-speed transmission. Not bad for a Sportage, right? Kia is definitely moving up.
