2007 Kia Sportage

The Sportage, along with the Sephia, was Kia's first vehicle introduced in the U.S. This crossover SUV with two rows of seating for five passengers got a more aggressive redesign in 2005, and the 2007 Kia Sportage offers very few changes. Chief among them are chrome accents on the rear fascia and a new Sport Package for the LX trims, featuring a rear spoiler, foglights, sporty instrument gauges, leather trim, and a mesh grille.

The 2007 Sportage packs a lot of standard features at a pricetag lower than many of its competitors', making it attractive to families. It's available with two engines. The 2.0-liter, 140-hp inline four comes in LX trims only, with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Unfortunately, an automatic transmission isn't offered for the 4-cylinder four-wheel drive model. The 2.7-liter, 173-hp V6 is available in LX or fancier EX trims, with only the automatic transmission. All trims are offered in front-wheel or four-wheel drive.

ABS, traction control, six airbags, and stability control are all standard, as are 16-inch tires, power features, cruise control, a rear wiper, roof rails, and a tailgate and rear window that open independently. EX trims add some luxury with a sunroof, leather trim, keyless entry, MP3 capability, and foglights.

In 2005, the Kia Sportage was made longer and wider for more stability and more interior leg and shoulder room. The rear seat folds down to expand cargo capacity to 66.6 cubic feet, and the front passenger seat also folds to fit longer objects. Aside from its sluggish acceleration, particularly with the inline-four engine, and its expected so-so gas mileage, most owners love their 2007 Sportage. They particularly point out its highly rated safety features (it received a five-star crash rating from the NHTSA), easy and light handling, and quiet ride. They also like how well even base trims are equipped.
