May 19th, 2022 by

If you’re looking for a crossover SUV, then the 2022 Kia Sportage should be at the top of your list to test-drive. With an exquisite cabin, excellent handling, and an affordable price tag, the Sportage comes packed with plenty of features and perks. Kia has four exciting trims available for this vehicle: the basic LX, Nightfall Edition, EX, and SX Turbo. To help you choose the model that’s right for you, our team has broken each of the Kia Sportage trim levels down below.

The 2022 Kia Sportage LX comes with an impressive lineup of equipment for a standard trim level, including 17-inch alloy wheels and power side mirrors. Featuring a 2.4-liter gas engine, the Kia Sportage LX pumps out 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque to get you where you need to go. It’s also backed by Kia’s famous 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. All the Kia Sportage trim levels are available in six colors, including Snow White Pearl, Sparkling Silver, Steel Gray, Pacific Blue, Hyper Red, and Black Cherry.

With body-colored door handles, chrome window trimming, rear privacy glass, and a rear spoiler with a chrome back bumper, the 2022 Kia Sportage LX looks and feels luxurious. While the Sportage LX comes with standard front-wheel drive, you can upgrade to Kia’s Dynamax all-wheel drive, which uses a locking mode that distributes power evenly between the front and rear axles to provide a smooth ride. The Dynamax upgrade also comes with fog lights, a compact spare tire, and a unique front fascia that boasts a 28-approach angle.

Inside the 2022 Kia Sportage LX, you’ll find an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system and a six-speaker, 160-watt audio system that’s compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth. Physical buttons and knobs make the infotainment system accessible and easy to use. A 60/40 split in the back seat provides plenty of room for cargo, and the cloth seats come in your choice of gray or black.

The Kia Sportage LX also provides a wide range of standard safety features, including a rearview camera, lane-departure warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning, and pedestrian detection. The standard trim comes with remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, a telescoping steering column, and cruise control.

2022 Kia Sportage Nightfall Edition

The 2022 Kia Sportage Nightfall Edition features the same 2.4-liter gas engine and optional all-wheel drive as the Sportage LX, but it comes with several additional features, including power-folding heated side mirrors, a flat-bottom steering wheel, paddle shifters, and a power driver’s seat. A windshield wiper de-icer heats the lower portion of the window when the defroster is on to prevent ice from building up even on the coldest days.

LED interior lighting, faux leather upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel make the Nightfall Edition a stylish upgrade from the Sportage LX. Piano black elements create sleek-looking fog lamp surrounds, skid plates, side-sill moldings, and a bumper garnish. To top it all off, the 2022 Kia Sportage Nightfall Edition comes with a glass panoramic sunroof that covers both the front and rear seats. On sunny days, a power sunshade provides protection from UV rays while allowing just enough light inside the cabin.

Additional safety features available with the Nightfall Edition include a blind spot monitor and rear-cross traffic alert system. Elevate this trim level with the Premium Package for smart cruise control, heated front seats, and 18-inch wheels. The Premium Package also offers dual-zone automatic climate control, a push-start button, a wireless charging pad, and welcome lighting. To complete this package, Kia includes SiriusXM satellite radio and UVO telematics.

2022 Kia Sportage EX

The 2022 Kia Sportage EX continues to get its power from a 2.4-liter gas engine, which provides slightly better fuel economy than the SX Turbo. This trim level also includes a proximity-activated power tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Upgrade the Sportage EX with the Technology Package for state-of-the-art features such as a 320-watt Harman Kardon audio system, a powered subwoofer, Clari-Fi technology, and a navigation system that comes with 10 years of complimentary map updates and software upgrades.

This package also comes with a heated and ventilated front seat, an eight-way power passenger seat, a wireless charging pad, and a heated steering wheel. Smart cruise control, luxurious leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, and a compact spare tire round out the Technology Package to create a truly marvelous vehicle.

2022 Kia Sportage SX Turbo

Boasting a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that cranks out 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the 2022 Kia Sportage SX Turbo is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a sleek and powerful SUV crossover. The six-speed automatic transmission is quick and responsive, providing a fun and zippy driving experience. Loaded with all the standard features and everything included in the Kia Sportage EX Technology Package, the SX Turbo has what you need to make the most of your time on the road.

This trim also features 19-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and LED exterior lights that offer nearly as much visibility as most vehicles do when their high beams are on. With improved handling, stability, traction, and cornering, the SX Turbo is a fun vehicle to drive regardless of the weather conditions. Inside the SX Turbo you’ll find a 4.2-inch LCD color cluster display that’s complete with navigation and compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth. The 2022 Kia Sportage SX Turbo also comes with leather upholstery and provides beige as an extra interior color choice.
