Kia Sportage SX Gets 2.0-Liter Turbo Engine in Canada
Share this Article

At the recent Montreal International Auto Show, Kia Canada rolled out a new turbocharged version of the Sportage crossover.

Currently available in only LX and EX trim levels, this new SX model uses the same 2.0L turbocharged gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine found in the new Hyundai Sonata Turbo. No engine specifics have been provided, but in the Sonata it makes 274-hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, which should help this compact crossover really fly.

In the Sonata, that engine makes 22/33-mpg (city/highway) so we expect similar numbers in the Sportage SX.

Standard equipment on the SX trim includes items like a Smart Key Push Button start, Panoramic Sunroof, 18-inch wheels, Driver Ventilated Seat, EVO Infotainment System, 7-speaker audio system and SX Leather Seating.

Arriving at dealers soon, the Sportage SX is priced from $36,995 in Canada. We expect a U.S. version to arrive soon, and this also raises the possibility that the Tucson will get the 2.0T engine.

    Talking to a local dealer here in Durham, NC…, they expect to be getting the Sportage SX in just under 3-months. They should be priced starting at about $32,000.00. Good luck to anyone trying to sell BMW X3s, Volkswagen Tiguans or Touregs,Toyota Rav4s or Bavarian X1s.
    The Koreans are rapidly becoming The Big Dog in this segment. Their combination of price, quality, value, style and performance is proving impossible to beat.
    The other car builders need to either adjust to the rising challenge or watch their sales dwindle away to nothing.
    The consumers are driving this recovery, and this new set of Asian builders is gaining momentum with each passing day. Peter Schreyer’s highly expressive design language is just the icing on the cake.
