If you're looking for a new way to get around the Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, and Carlisle, PA, area, one of the best options is a new crossover. With versatility for everyone, the Kia Sportage trim levels offer a surprising amount of cargo space with drivability that will make sedan drivers feel at ease.

Kia crafted the 2021 Kia Sportage with versatility in mind, so you'll have quite a few trim levels to choose from. Find out which would work best for your needs with our comprehensive review of the various Kia Sportage trim levels.

Sportage LX

The standard LX trim offers quite a bit for a base-level model. You start with a 2.4L DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine that produces 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

You also have the option to upgrade to Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive right from the beginning. Towing capacity is also constant across all trim levels at an impressive 2,000 pounds, paired with the proper equipment.

For added safety you have optional Blind-Spot Collision Warning. This system alerts you if there's a possible collision with a vehicle present in your blind spot.

You get a touchscreen right from the beginning with the LX trim's 8-inch screen. It comes equipped with AM/FM/MP3/Bluetooth® capability with a 6-speaker audio system, providing a robust entertainment system.

Additionally, this 8-inch display includes Apple CarPlay® support, so your Sportage infotainment system mirrors your iPhone.

Apple CarPlay® lets you make calls, play your music, and respond to text messages with your voice using Siri® integration. This way, you can stay connected while simultaneously staying safer on the road.

For Android users, you have the added convenience of Android Auto™ integration. Like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ lets you connect to your smartphone and make calls, texts, and listen to your favorite content hands-free.

The base model's technology continues with the standard Rear-Camera Display, which grants you increased visibility when backing up.

Sportage S

Next is the S trim, where you get safety enhancements, premium interior options, and design features.

The features continue with the addition of optional Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. This system allows your Sportage to maintain your desired distance from any vehicle ahead of you in the same lane.  

When you step into the Sportage S, the craftsmanship and luxurious feel invites you to go on a wonderful journey. This trim introduces Sofino Synthetic Leather Seat Trim, letting you sit back and relax in style.

You want your Kia vehicle to make a statement, and the Sportage S delivers. Cruise along the road boasting the beautiful 18-inch Alloy Wheels in a Dark Gray finish.

It's not all about looks, though. Many design features have a useful purpose. If you need to haul equipment, the Roof Rails present on the Sportage S make it easy to strap and transport your gear to keep it secure on your journey.

Roof Rails, paired with the right equipment, help you haul cargo boxes, mountain bikes, and skis. They are the perfect addition to an adventurous set of wheels. If you plan to carry equipment, then the Sportage S trim is an excellent choice for those who want additional cosmetic accessories.

Sportage EX

Upgrade to the Sportage EX, and you'll find a multitude of exciting new features. The engine remains the same, but the interior is remarkably more luxurious. Heated leather seats with 10-way power adjustability comes standard here, and you even have the option to upgrade to ventilated front seats as well.

The advanced technology doesn't end there, though. With the Sportage EX trim, you have a Smart Key with Push-Button Start. This allows you to seamlessly begin your journey without the need to fiddle with keys in the ignition.

Additionally, the Smart Key feature makes it easier to lock and unlock your Sportage model's door. You don't even need to touch your key fob-as long as the key is near your Kia vehicle, you can get in and go in a snap.

Sportage SX Turbo

If you're looking for the top-of-the-line Sportage, it doesn't get any better than the SX Turbo. As the name suggests, you get a nice engine upgrade with the 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4 turbocharged engine. This bad boy can produce up to 240 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque, putting it in a league of its own.

Inside, your infotainment system gets another upgrade, including several additional features, like Voice-Command Navigation and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. With those two systems working together, you can find the most efficient way to your destination without having to take your hands off the wheel.

Let the audio move through you with the Harman Kardon® Premium Surround Sound system available on the Sportage SX Turbo. With this high-quality sound system you can hear your music, podcasts, or navigation clearly.

Additionally, you can put your Sportage SX Turbo back in the groove after it has been stopped, picking right up where you left off with your desired Smart Cruise Control settings.

Alongside the advanced technology and safety features comes the standard leather seat trims, available in three colors: Black, Gray, and Beige.
