Sportage Enters 2016 as CUV Segment Stand-out with Focus on Features

Sportage doesn’t compromise on space and utility, offers St. Louis CUV fans more

The 2016 KIA Sportage CUV will make fans of the 2015 model just as happy with its 2016 offering. Minor changes to the ’16 Sportage make the CUV better-rounded and a boon for any St. Louis family.

Once again, the Sportage will offer three trim levels for 2016: the LX, EX and SX. The biggest focus for KIA on the 2016 was the features and standards for the trim and option packages.

Even the entry LX trim is getting an upgrade for the new model year. The Popular Package on the LX trim adds a touchscreen display with integrated Rear Camera Display as well as auto on/off headlights. This is in addition to the standard features which include a rear spoiler, roof rails, trip computer, rear armrest with cup holders and illuminated sun visors.

The biggest change to the mid-range EX trim is the standard leather trimmed seats, bringing more comfort to the families of St. Louis at a better value! Along with that, a Smart Key with push-button start comes standard. Those who opt for the EX’s Premium Package, they’ll receive the Infinity Premium audio system, front fog lights, integrated turn signals in the heated outside mirrors and a cooled glove box.

For those who live fully loaded, the 2016 KIA Sportage SX is for them. With the SX, new 2016 Sportage owners get everything in the EX Premium Package along with extra features such as dual exhaust pipes, LED Daytime Running Lamps, LED tail lights, aluminum door-scuff plates, unique wheels and grille design and the standard turbocharged engine!

The two classic engine choices will once again be available. The LX and EX models come standard with the 2.4-liter GDI inline four-cylinder engine. This engine is capable of producing 182 horsepower with a maximum 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The SX trim comes with the aforementioned 2.0-L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with a booming 260 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque.
