2011 Kia Sportage: Mega Photo Gallery (And A Free Zune!)

Follow Marty

We're live in San Francisco to drive the 2011 Kia Sportage -- and to get you as fully psyched as we are, we have all the official photos of the latest crossover from South Korea.

If you missed our coverage of the Sportage from the 2010 New York auto show, here's quick refresher. The Sportage is the mechanical cousin to the 2010 Hyundai Tucson, but it's sharply different inside and out. The Tucson's rounded, flared shape is visual kin to the hot-selling Sonata sedan--while the Sportage's crisp lines clearly tie it into Kia's latest efforts, like the 2011 Sorento crossover and the upcoming 2011 Optima sedan.

Under the skin, there's a big 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 176 horsepower, and a new all-wheel drive option that gives the Sportage good all-weather capability. A six-speed manual's standard, with a six-speed automatic available. Also standard on the Sportage: a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, Sirius satellite radio, and all the safety gear you'd expect.

We'll be at the steering wheel today to bring you our first impressions of the Sportage. Right now, you can catch up on our preview of the 2011 Kia Sportage, then throughout the day, you can flip over to Twitter or our Live Drive page to see what we think and see as we're driving the new crossover. Later this week, we'll bring you our full review, too.

Best of all, you can win a Microsoft Zune 16GB media player by telling us what you think about the new Sportage--or any new car on the market.  Sign up to win right now and stay tuned for more.

  1. Doesn't look like much of an SUV to me - more like a jacked up hatchback. If that's your thing, fine. Why buy an SUV if it doesn't even look like one, though? You're better off getting the new Optima that's coming out.
