Product Overview

Kia Sportage 2 is an affordable subcompact crossover in production from 2004 to 2010. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 2.7 liters.
Unlike the Mk1 Sportage, the Mk2 is no longer a real SUV. Unfortunately, while Kia managed to keep some of its vehicles decently-styled, the Sportage became exceedingly ugly.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Kia Sportage II is hardly the "offroader" that Kia would like you to think. Owners may find that at speed the vehicle consumes a lot more than the numbers indicate, thanks to a disappointing 0.40 coefficient of drag to show for it.
