Expert Quotes:

As is often the case with Kias, there is a lot of value in this vehicle.
Motor Trend

Other thoughtful touches abound, including rear-parking assist, back-up camera, dual-zone climate control, ionized filtration A/C, a cooled glove box, a giant panoramic sunroof and a bottom-hinged throttle pedal, just like a Porsche.
Autoblog

Unlike with Sync, though, there's no navigation feature, and due to a planning oversight, you won't be able to get UVO with the factory nav system until the 2012 model year.
Inside Line

UVO searches all of your media sources, finds the song you want then plays it. Pretty slick.
Autoblog

The spot where you plug in the key fob for pushbutton start is in the center console storage area and the iPod jack is just below the center stack.
Motor Trend

The Sportage is an entry-level crossover for the brand, although you'll find most of the same features that grace the larger Sorento here as well.

Even the base Sportage, for around $20k, gets power windows, locks, and mirrors; 16-inch wheels; and air conditioning. The more expensive trim levels get telescoping steering; satellite radio; a USB port; Bluetooth; steering-wheel controls for audio and phone; and keyless start.

Top SX versions add a power driver seat; a rear spoiler; a cooled glove box; 18-inch wheels; and a leather steering wheel and shifter trim. They also carry a base pricetag that sits around $30,000. Major options include leather upholstery; seat heaters; and cooled front seats.

Kia has added a number of new features to the 2014 Sportage, including a new Supervision gauge cluster for top models, along with a new navigation system and UVO eServices, with apps and expanded services. Although the final feature set hasn't yet been released, we're expecting the array of models to carry over for the most part.

Conclusion

Infinity premium audio, a new navigation system, and revised infotainment systems add even more value to the lineup for 2014.

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.
