Set a Course for Adventure Out of Alexandria, LA in a Capable Orienteer: The New Kia Sportage

When it comes to a highway cruise likewise ready to go off the beaten path, one doesn't necessarily first think "compact SUV" for a model up to the challenge. However, the new Kia Sportage aims to dispel that illusion. The new Kia SUV remains a showcase of all the advanced tech, safety features, and amenities one could hope to find for an Alexandria, LA area getaway. Here at Walker Kia, you can conveniently explore the entirety of the line before stopping by for a visit, whether you're browsing the base Sportage LX from Pineville, taking a look at a new Sportage EX in Leesville, or discovering your high-performance Sportage SX Turbo options out of Avoyelles Parish.


Among new Kia SUVs here in Alexandria, Kia Sportage is a standout, from sleek exterior design lines to well-equipped interior. Your experience begins with a Smart Welcome, a mainstay in upper trims. This system detects the proximity of your Smart Key, automatically unfolding Sportage's outside mirrors and illuminating its door pocket lights, making your entry inviting. Just activate the SUV's available panoramic sunroof, adjust its power sunshade to Mother Nature's friendliness, and hit the road.

You'll find control of apps, entertainment, and vehicle functions at your fingertips along the way thanks to a 5-inch touchscreen-equipped, six-speaker audio system with SiriusXM support. Ascend to a higher Sportage trim, and it becomes a 7-inch UVO touchscreen infotainment system. An 8-inch variant comes standard in SX Turbo with built-in SiriusXM Traffic navigation, voice command, and an HD Radio, incorporating eight-speaker, 320-watt Harman/Kardon premium audio to take your road mixes off the map. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay even come standard in Sportage EX and later, simplifying integration of a smartphone. When you arrive at your venue, a height-adjustable, hands-free Smart Power LiftgateĀ® makes unloading a breeze.


For the ride, Kia shows in its new Sportage its dedication to keeping you and yours secure. Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, and a Traction Control System put the compact SUV on even footing with diverse terrain and inclement weather, and Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control come together to manage slopes with reliability. Factor in driver-assist technologies like available Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a Lane Departure Warning System, and Autonomous Emergency Braking, and it's easy to keep eyes on your surroundings while avoiding accidents. Even options like Parking Assist make sliding into that sweet spot with situational awareness a matter of course.

Engine and Performance

No excursion can go off without the energetics to make it a pleasure cruise. Kia Sportage builds in a 2.4-liter inline-four engine to keep things spirited, and it graduates to a turbocharged 2.0-liter variant in Sportage SX Turbo, running the gamut from 181 to 240 horsepower and 175 to 260 pound-feet of torque for adrenalized thrills. An available locking center differential helps you make the most of traction along the way, and with excellent fuel economy to go the distance. Count on up to an estimated 21-23 mpg city, 26-30 mpg highway, and 23-26 mpg combined, depending on trim and choice of front- or Dynamax all-wheel drivetrain. The new Kia Sportage can even tow up to 2,000 pounds maximum when properly equipped.
