Aren't they supposed to offer a GDI turbo from the Sonata/Optima in the Tuscon/Sportage? I heard that it would replace the previous V-6 option, and the larger Sante Fe/Sorento on up would continue with V-6s.

The refreshed 2020 Kia Sportage made its debut in the Windy City, boasting a bold new look, a new S trim, more convenience and available driver-assist features, and a standard 8-inch touchscreen for LX, S and EX variants. Following the introduction of the upcoming Telluride, Kia's largest SUV, the Sportage appeals to those who don't need or want the space of a larger vehicle but place a high value on Kia's cutting-edge design, available AWD capability and convenience. Set to go on sale in the first half of 2019.

Euro-focused Design

The design language around Kia Sportage has always been distinctly European and the 2020 model carries on the tradition. From the first pencil stroke it was meant to convey the kind of presence associated with sweeping, thought-provoking curves and an equally aggressive stance. The significant exterior design changes for 2020 include:
  • New headlights with available LED turn indicators
  • Redesigned projector-beam fog lights
  • Available LED headlights with available LED fog lights
  • New front grille, bumper, air intake and skid plate
  • Newly designed 17-, 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Redesigned rear bumper and skid plate
  • New exhaust tip design
  • Redesigned tail light trim
  • A new metallic Steel Grey exterior color
The 2020 Sportage interior design is lightly enhanced and includes:
  • New available SOFINO leatherette seating surfaces
  • Standard 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, available modem-enabled telematics, and available navigation
  • Newly designed steering wheel and vent bezels
  • Available smartphone wireless charging tray
Engineered for Confident Capability

Along with the new S trim, Kia Sportage is offered in LX, EX and SX variants in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Two engines are available: a 2.4-liter GDI producing 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. or torque or a 2.0-liter turbo GDI that's good for up to 2409 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. New to the Kia Sportage are a number of available driver assist features:
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control with Start & Stop
  • Forward Collision Assist with pedestrian detection
  • High beam assist
