One of the many reasons we enjoy being a Kia dealer in Evans, GA is that it gives us the chance to introduce local motorists to vehicles like the 2022 Kia Sportage. Outfitted with an upscale cabin and plenty of desirable features, it’s easy to see why the Kia Sportage continues to enjoy a celebrated legacy as a sought-after crossover.
Two Engine Options
When they contact our Georgia Kia dealership, many drivers ask us what’s under the hood of the 2022 Kia Sportage. All of this crossover’s trims are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine except the top model. The base engine produces 181 horsepower. A turbocharged 2.0-liter engine powers the top trim and it generates 240 horsepower in front-wheel drive models and 237 horsepower in crossovers that have all-wheel drive.
Both engines are paired with a responsive six-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of the engine that powers it, the 2022 Kia Sportage has a maximum tow rating of 2,000 pounds.
Standard Active Safety Equipment
We’re proud to tell you that the new Kia Sportage boasts an impressive number of active safety and driver-assistive features. Here are some of the advanced safety features that are standard beginning with the SUV’s base trim:
Some additional safety features are available as you move up through the SUV’s lineup. The Nightfall Edition trim adds a blind-spot monitor with a rear cross-traffic alert while the EX model tacks on front and rear parking sensors.
