Kia Sportage offers three models
Consumer Guide

The 2008 Kia Sportage is very well equipped, even in base form, but doesn’t offer the latest entertainment and high-tech features becoming more common at its price point.

Kelley Blue Book says “the Kia Sportage enjoys an almost opulent level of equipment.”
Cars.com reports "standard Kia Sportage equipment includes power windows with one-touch-down for the driver, power mirrors, and a six-speaker CD stereo," adding that the "Kia Sportage EX adds heated mirrors, remote keyless entry, a cargo cover and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. V-6 models get standard cruise control."

The Auto Channel attests that with the Kia 2008 "sunroof, power windows, heated outside mirrors, trip computer, roof rack and keyless entry do not come as an extra cost or better known as an upgrade package, which is nice."

When it comes to options, only Kelley Blue Book has anything of substance to say: "with all that is standard the customer is left with little to add...the less-expensive 2008 Kia Sportage LX gives the customer more variables, although many of those would be dealer-installed." Kelley Blue Book does comment "on the EX, a Luxury Package includes body-colored bumpers, leather seats and trim, heated front seats, automatic headlamps and a six-disc CD changer, amplifier and subwoofer."

Bluetooth, navigation, satellite radio, HD radio, and MP3 player connectivity are not offered on the Sportage.

Conclusion

The 2008 Kia Sportage has the basics covered, but few of the hottest, latest features can be had even as options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
