Kia Sportage FWD: 21/28 mpg (2.4-liter auto); 20/26 mpg (2.0-liter auto)
Kia Sportage AWD: 19/26 mpg (2.4-liter auto); 19/24 mpg (2.0-liter auto)
In fuel-efficiency, the 2014 Kia Sportage is competitive fuel economy with other popular crossovers in its size class; but at a time when some models get well over 30 mpg on the highway, it's by no means class-leading -- and 19 miles per gallon in the city for 4WD models puts this one near the back of the pack.
For 2014, the base 2.4-liter engine has direct injection and makes 182 hp, versus last year's 176 hp. And oddly, that's had a further downward effect on mileage.
The 2014 Kia Sportage is reasonably fuel-efficient--if you skip the all-wheel drive models.
