Fuel: 20 mpg city / 27 mpg hwy
The 2013 Kia Sportage is carried over from last year with minimal changes. Updates for this model year include LED accent lights standard for LX and EX, LED daytime running lights only offered on the SX, and power folding outside mirrors are now standard on all models. The Sportage features such standard equipment as air conditioning, power locks, power windows/mirrors, and Sirius Satellite radio. The LX upgrades the base with integrated LED turn signal mirrors, and rear tinted windows. The EX comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, and leather-wrapped shifter and steering wheel. The top-of-the-line SX adds a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine producing 260 horsepower, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust, sculpted side sill moldings and unique SX grille. As a result of an audit and investigation by the EPA, Hyundai and Kia have posted reduced mileage ratings for most of their 2012 and 2013 vehicles; if applicable, MPG ratings shown have been adjusted as of November 2012.
