2021 Sportage Performance Specs 

The 2021 Kia Sportage can be equipped with one of two available power plants.

Potential buyers looking for more power can take the SX Turbo trim grade home with its turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.

Both engines can be equipped with front- or all-wheel-drive, depending on what the customer would like to have. Every 2021 Sportage will be able to get around 20 miles per gallon in the city (give or take) and nearly 30 miles per gallon on the highway, when equipped with front-wheel-drive. Highway fuel economy scores for all-wheel-drive-equipped versions will hover around 25 mpg. 

When a 2021 Sportage is pulling a trailer with trailer brakes, the load can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds. Trailers without brakes will limit the towing capacity of the 2021 Sportage to 1,653 pounds.
