2020 Kia Sportage vs 2019 Kia Sportage

Serving Tuscaloosa, AL

Over the years, the Kia Sportage has remained one of the most exciting compact crossovers on the market. Drivers have grown to love its lively performance and great value. For the 2020 model year, it benefits from a long list of updates. Let’s examine how the refreshed 2020 Kia Sportage compares to the 2019 Kia Sportage.


The 2020 Kia Sportage offers the same excellent powertrains. Even the standard 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine develops a competitive 181 horsepower. If you desire more performance, step up to the turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine. It elevates driving excitement by producing 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both engines can be paired to an optional Dynamax AWD system. While the standard suspension delivers maximum ride comfort, you can experience sharper handling with the SX trim’s sports-tuned suspension dampers.


In terms of exterior styling, Kia has made some big-time changes to the 2020 Sportage. It looks even more striking than the 2019 Sportage. When making a side-by-side comparison of these models, you’ll immediately notice the 2020 Kia Sportage’s updated front fascia. It features new projector headlights and a restyled grille. A new front skid plate helps further bolster the crossover’s curb appeal. Meanwhile, new taillights help give the rear fascia a more modern look. You can also take advantage of Kia’s new Steel Grey paint option.


The 2019 Kia Sportage already came equipped with a rewarding list of features. However, a few more goodies have been added for 2020. Technology lovers will appreciate the upgraded 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support. Last year’s Sportage came standard with a smaller 5.0-inch touchscreen, which didn’t provide advanced smartphone connectivity. Every new 2020 Kia Sportage also benefits from a new steering wheel. For the first time, wireless device charging is now offered. When equipped with SOFINO leatherette seating, the new Sportage has an exceptionally luxurious feel.
