Kia Sportage Receives 2.0-liter Turbo Engine
The new engine will be offered with a newly-introduced equipment trim called SX, sold in Canada with a price tag of $36,995. Currently available exclusively in Canada, the SX version is likely to arrive into other markets as well, with the United States one of the most probable destinations for the near future.
"The addition of the SX package to the all-new 2011 Sportage further enhances our positive momentum on the vehicle while introducing a whole new dimension to both design and power including exception fuel economy," said Robert Staffieri, Marketing Director of Kia Canada Inc.
"The Sportage SX completes our powertrain offering for Canadians and the 2.0L Turbo GDI provides a high level of world-class technology. The Sportage is the first vehicle in Canada to debut this all-new flagship engine."
Standard features on the SX trim level include all equipment offerings available on the EX Luxury version, such as Smart Key Push Button Start, Panoramic Sunroof, 18" Alloy wheels, Driver Ventilated Seat, UVO Infotainment System powered by Microsoft, Premium Sound (7 speakers), Rear Spoiler, Deluxe Door Scuff, SX Leather Seating and Auto Dimming Mirror with Homelink.
