Drive the 2016 Kia Sportage in Medicine Hat, AB
Want to know how you pronounce Sportage like a true north, strong, and free Canadian? Our French Canadian roots dictate that we say it spor-TAWJ, instead of our neighbors to the south you are wont to say SPOR-tige. Whether you’re from Canada, U.S., Europe, Asia or Mars, the 2016 Kia Sportage is a ridiculously good-looking compact SUV. Designed by German-born Peter Schreyer (whose resume includes stints at Audi and VW), the 2016 Sportage has angular LED-accented headlights that extend up and accentuate the already strong fenders.
The 2016 Kia Sportage, the highest rated small SUV in initial quality for two years in a row by J.D. Power, is available for a test drive now at Southland Kia in Medicine Hat, Southern Alberta. Contact our sales department or visit us in person to find the ideal 2016 Kia Sportage 4×4 at our dealership lot at 1276 Trans-Canada Way SE. We have a great selection of new 2016 Shortages and a few remaining 2014 models as well.
2016 Kia Sportage Interior
Let there be music! You’ll quickly see that it is good with the UVO (stands for “your voice”) multimedia system powered by Microsoft. Standard on the 2016 Kia Sportage EX and SX, this clever software learns your and another driver’s voice commands so that you can control your tunes hands-free. You’ll also appreciate more conventional conveniences in the 2016 Kia Sportage like an easy-opening rear tailgate and a massive 1,547 litres of space in which to fill up with whatever you need to carry: kids, pets, antique furniture, or home renovation supplieswhatever! But all that free space won’t feel like a stuffy cave with the optional dual panoramic sunroofs that let in all the sun and fresh air you can soak up.
2016 Kia Sportage Engines and Fuel Economy
Do you prefer naturally aspirated or turbocharged engines? Most automotive gearheads have a preference. With the 2015 Kia Sportage, you can have either. But most importantly, both powertrains are peppy and return great fuel economy numbers:
- 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder: 182 horsepower, 177 lb-ft of torque, and 8.3 or 11.4 L/100km on the highway and in the city
- 2.0L turbocharged: 260 horsepower, 269 lb-ft of torque, and 9.7 or 12.6 L/100km on the highway and in the city
And as you would expect in a compact SUV from Kia, the 2016 Sportage can be specified with Dynamax all-wheel drive that’ll keep you from getting stuck in the snow or sliding into the ditch when you’re driving to the mountains in the middle of the winter.
2016 Kia Sportage Safety Features
When you buy a Kia, you don’t have to pay extra for important safety features. The 2016 Kia Sportage has standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, Electronic Stability Control, and six airbags. More specifically, those brakes feature Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). This technology endures that braking power is applied to the wheels with the best traction for the shortest possible stopping distances. And if you like knowing exactly how much room you have to spare when backing up into a parking stall, the 2016 Kia Sportage has an available ultrasonic sensor system built into the rear bumper that sounds a tone as you near an obstacle.
