Kia has made a name for itself as a forward-thinking automaker with a special focus on safety and technology. The 2021 Kia Sportage is no exception, but it is quickly becoming one of the last models to be redesigned. The wave of redesigns that helped propel Kia to its current position as a favorite automaker is already on its way out, but the Sportage remains unchanged since 2017, so if you prefer the sleek, smooth design of the current Sportage over the angular, aggressive redesigns in most of the rest of the lineup, now is the time to get a new Sportage before they change too.
Exterior design isn’t everything though. The real advantage to choosing Kia remains whether your favorite model gets redesigned or not because Kia is keeping safety and technology at the forefront. Even the lowest trim of the Sportage contains a treasure trove of great tech. The following chart is designed to help verse you in the vehicle’s available features and other highlights.

With how many compact crossovers there are out there, shoppers should hold each model to the highest standards to ensure they find the best model. The Kia Sportage will hold up to scrutiny, especially with the achievements of trims like the EX Premium and SX. Even the LX with its budget-minded MSRP can deliver a welcome complement of features.
