What engine does the 2019 Kia Sportage have?
The answer to that question depends on the trim level you choose. The LX (base) and EX models come with a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 181 horsepower and 175 pound-foot of torque. Both trims come available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drivetrains. This is also the most efficient option as it contributes to 30 highway mpg, 23 city mpg, and 25 combined mpg. If you’d like to maximize your power and sacrifice a bit of efficiency, the top-of-the-line 2019 Kia Sportage SX features a 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine. The SX is also available with front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Those who upgrade their horsepower will still see up to 26 highway mpg, 21 city mpg, and 23 combined mpg. When properly equipped, the 2019 Sportage can also tow up to 1,650 lbs.
