The 2012 Kia Sportage comes with a generous list of standard features, no matter which model. And most of them include connectivity features like Bluetooth and a USB port.
Kia offers three versions of the Sportage. The base vehicle is priced at around $19,000 and brings with it air conditioning; power windows, locks and mirrors; and 16-inch wheels. Moving up to more expensive models adds features like keyless start; satellite radio; Bluetooth; steering-wheel audio and phone controls; and a USB port.
Top LX models get a cooled glove box; a power driver seat; 18-inch wheels; leather steering wheel and shifter trim; roof rails; and a rear spoiler. One disappointment--at least for those who choose EX models--is that you have to also step up to the LX to get telescopic steering adjustment.
Major options include leather upholstery; seat heaters; a cooled driver seat; and finally UVO, Kia's version of the Microsoft voice controller sold by Ford as SYNC. Kia's version has a more limited vocabulary and controls fewer functions, but it can search all your media to find the perfect soundtrack to your next drive, whether it lives on your iPod, an SD card, or HD Radio.
