Drive outside of the box in a modern compact crossover that defies conventions with an elegant, extroverted exterior distinguished by sweeping curves, sleek lines, and thoroughly contemporary features. Designed for the bold, the 2019 Sportage captivates the eye and inspires a sense of adventure with its dynamic styling.
The Sportage sets its own aesthetic standards for the compact crossover. Its striking tiger-nose grille, elegant side contours, prominent wheel arches, coupe-like roof, extended wheelbase, and satin silver touches achieve a precise balance between luxurious sophistication and dynamic sportiness.
Upgraded and unforgettable, the striking good looks of the Sportage begin with its front exterior. Elongated headlights sweep back gracefully into the body, perched above a distinctive tiger-nose grille and available quad LED fog lights that invite adventure.
Chiseled lines accentuate Sportage's athletic stance.
The available slim, horizontal LED Rear Combination Lamps complement the swept-back headlights.
The Sportage transports you in a sumptuous driving environment, while serving every functional need with inventiveness and ease. Premium craftsmanship imbues every detail, from the soft-touch materials to the upgraded seats with scientifically calibrated touch points.
Designed for the utmost control and comfort on every journey, the 2019 Sportage puts you at the center of its universe. The angled console, displays, and buttons are all ergonomically optimized.
With state-of-the-art technology powering driver assistance, convenience, and entertainment, the everyday drive is anything but average.

The Sportage offers a suite of Kia Drive Wise technologies designed not only to alert you of potential accidents, but also to help avoid some altogether. Every move will be made with greater awareness so you can just enjoy the feeling of being behind the wheel.
The Sportage knows when you need a brake. Its available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) monitors vehicles ahead of you to help prevent a collision or, if unavoidable, reduce the impact.
The available Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) system helps reduce the blind spots on the side of your Sportage. And the available Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) system scans for passing cars, motorcycles, and/or other vehicles as you back up. The advanced radar-based detection system issues visual or auditory signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view.
Drive confidently with added eyes on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) intelligently monitors the position of your Sportage using a windshield-mounted camera. If the system detects you veering from your lane, without the turn signal on, it will provide audible and visual warnings.
Conveniently maneuver in and out of tight spaces. In addition to available parking assist systems, every Sportage comes equipped with Rear-Camera Display so you can reverse with confidence.
Available Dynamic Bending Light (DBL) illuminates around corners in conjunction with the amount of steering angle applied. The available High Beam Assist (HBA) goes one step further by automatically dimming the high beams when oncoming vehicles are detected.
Wherever your adventures take you, the Sportage is ready to handle the bumps along the way. Its Iso-Structure™ delivers rigidity. Along with extended body insulation and other features, this creates a smoother, quieter ride for the driver and passengers alike.
Available on all 2019 Sportage trims, the Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system senses and adjusts traction requirements for changing road and weather conditions.
Nimble handling and impressive power converge with surprising fuel-efficiency. Take your pick from two four-cylinder engines: the LX and EX come standard with a high-output 2.4-liter engine that is among the segment leaders, while the SX Turbo model gets an even more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. And the 6-speed automatic transmission delivers a smoother, more efficient ride.
The 2019 Sportage ensures a sense of security on every journey. Its Iso-Structure™ unibody boasts chassis rigidity based on Advanced High-Strength Steel. Inside, a complete array of active and passive safety systems help assure that your protection is the priority.
A cushion of protection surround you and your passengers in the Sportage. Front and side airbags are controlled by an advanced sensor system that is designed to respond with the utmost immediacy.
Engineered to help keep you on track and in control. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) adjusts acceleration and braking in emergency situations. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your vehicle in place as you move off an incline.
Advanced braking provides enhanced control. When activated in off-road conditions, Downhill Brake Control (DBC) individually applies the brakes to maintain a constant speed down hills or slippery surfaces. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce skidding by modulating the brakes in emergency braking situations.
