2015 Kia Sportage Continues Its Award-Winning Ways

The Kia Sportage has won numerous awards and honors for its features and versatility -- including being named the top-ranked small CUV in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study -- and Jim Butler Kia is excited to say that the trend will continue.

For the 2015 model, the Kia Sportage is available in three trim levels -- LX, EX and SX. All trims feature standard rear vents and reclining outboard seats, an optional ventilated seat for the front passenger and Apple USB compatibility. Drivers also will enjoy a tilt and telescopic steering column for extra comfort.

The LX trim offers numerous standard features, including 17-inch alloy wheels matched with 225/60R17 low-rolling-resistance silica tires, body-color door handles, Bluetooth Wireless Technology Hands-Free Connectivity, solar glass, privacy glass, keyless entry with folding key and a six-speed electronically controlled Sportmatic automatic transmission. The EX features 18-inch alloy wheels with 235/55R18 tires, LED turn signals on the outside mirrors, high-performance dampers, roof rails, a rear spoiler, fog lamps and chrome body trim and door handles. The SX gets in on the fun, too, with a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI engine producing 260-horsepower, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust, sculpted side sill moldings, LED accent lighting along the headlamps for a sportier, more upscale appearance and a unique SX grille.

Want some great technology? You've got it! In addition to the interior features mentioned above, the EX and SX trims offer the UVO system as standard, which utilizes the advanced eServices telematics suite enabled by an exclusive, free smartphone app that provides drivers with an innovative in-vehicle connectivity experience including diagnostics capabilities and added convenience features. Control music, mobile phone operations and more with your voice, keeping your hands safely on the wheel. The UVO package also is available to LX owners.
