2016 Kia Sportage is Pure Driving Bliss

Very rarely would you expect a compact crossover to feel very sporty to drive. That’s why it’s quite a treat to be behind the wheel of the 2016 Kia Sportage. With a 182-horsepower 2.4L engine, it offers pure driving bliss and a notably smooth ride. What makes it a pleasure to drive is the technology behind it.

All-Wheel Drive

The Sportage is a remarkable all-wheel drive vehicle thanks to its Dynamax feature. It is a highly advanced system that helps distribute power to the appropriate wheels based on the traction needs. Through its electronic sensors and control unit, the system proactively anticipates the driver’s needs and continuously analyzes the data. This results in a stable driving experience whatever the driving condition is.

Sporty Transmission

The 2016 Sportage comes with a six-speed automatic transmission comparable to some of the most luxurious sports cars out there.  At automatic mode, going from one gear to the next is not a workout since it provides smooth shifting all around. For drivers looking for a sportier driving experience, switch to automatic mode for the clutch-free manual shifting. Both modes are available because of the Sportmatic transmission design.

Precise Handling

Of course, the shifting ease and all-wheel drive capabilities of the Sportage would mean nothing if it didn’t handle just as well. Rest assured that handling will be smooth and precise due to the high-performance dampers, front MacPherson struts, and rear multi-link design that comes with the four wheel independent suspension.
