The Sportage first entered the market about 30 years ago in 1993. It soon became a staple of the South Korean carmaker’s SUV family and is currently on its fifth generation.
The latest of these was unveiled in 2021. Before this, it did receive a facelift in 2019.
As with many Korean vehicles, trim levels have varied depending on the region sold and the generation in question.
For the latest version sold in North America, these consist of the base LX, followed by the EX, SX, and SX Prestige.
Similar to trim levels, there have been a wide array of engine options offered over the years. These have included various petrol and diesel engines, as well as the hybrid versions that were introduced with the fifth generation.
For this generation, conventional petrol and diesel options, as well as hybrid variants, have all consisted of 1.6 L inline-4, 2.0 L inline-4, and 2.5 L inline-4 engines. Interestingly, there has even been a diesel hybrid version released, which is fairly uncommon.
These have been mated with a number of transmissions. For manual options, only a 6-speed has been given. Automatic options have included either a 6-speed or an 8-speed. There has also been a 7-speed DCT.
