Coming Soon: 2021 Kia Sportage
The 2021 Sportage is on the way, what do we know.
At Kia of Mankato we are excited for the forthcoming Kia Sportage. We love the current one, and think it’s a great fun and reliable family crossover that offers amazing value for money. However in the world of cars, nothing stands still. While we don’t have a firm date or details on when the 2021 Sportage will arrive in our showrooms we do have ideas of the changes it will bring.
On the outside the Sportage is going to be a little larger. Given that the all new Seltos is similar in size to the current Sportage, and we see what other crossovers in the Sportage’s category have done, we know that it will grow in size outside and inside as well.
We expect more legroom in the front row as well as the second row. We also expect more shoulder room and a much “airier” feeling to the cabin. Cargo room both with second row seats up as well as folded down will grow.
The next generation platform on which the Sportage will be built will stronger and stiffer allowing for a more compliant and controlled ride as well as offering a more quiet cabin.
With the infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto will be offered. There is a possibility of a larger 10-inch screen, and fingers crossed, the possibility of wireless Apple CarPlay, though we are not counting on it.
Because the current drivetrain works so well we expect the 2.4-liter non-turbo and 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engines to continue.
Styling-wise we expect the new Sportage to draw inspiration from the Telluride, however, it will likely have a “sportier” twist on the shape.
As South Central Minnesota’s and the surrounding areas place to go for new, fun, safe and affordable family vehicles contact us today and we will let you know when the new Sportage will arrive. In the meantime, schedule an at home test drive of the current Sportage, or any other of the fantastic Kia’s we have in stock.
