2014 Kia Sportage Gets New GDI Engine, Detail Changes

Kia's Style-Forward Crossover Gets a Refresh

Sep 16, 2013
The 2014 Kia Sportage adds new features and styling details that promise to keep it an interesting contender in the compact crossover segment. Since its Peter Schreyer-penned redesign for the 2011 model year, the Sportage has been a stylistic standout in the typically staid small-crossover class. The 2014 model adds a redesigned front grille and optional HID headlights and LED taillights.
Other than the visual upgrades for the 2014 model year, the 2014 Sportage gets a new 182 hp, 177 lb-ft gasoline-direct-injection 2.4-liter engine on the LX and EX models, representing a 6 hp and 9 lb-ft increase in power over last year's port-injected 2.4-liter engine. Final EPA figures have not yet been announced for the new engine, but expect at least a 1-mpg improvement in both city and highway figures over the current model. The 260-hp, 269 lb-ft GDI Turbo 2.0-liter engine offered in the SX trim carries over for 2014.
The other two major changes are on the inside, with the addition of a telescoping function to the tilt steering wheel, and UVO eServices standard on the EX and SX models, and available as a package option on the LX trim. Other features previously optional on lower-trim Sportages are now standard across-the-board, such as high-performance shocks, and rear-seat vents and reclining outboard seats. Pricing for the 2014 Sportage line has not yet been announced.
