You are in the Kia Sportage
What is this discussion about?
Kia Sportage, SUV

Could someone direct me where to find the specs on the new Sportage? I looked on the Kia site and the pics look GOOD, but couldn't find specs such as exterior and interior measurements. I am interested to see just how much ground clearance this Kia has as my old 2002 Sportage was wonderful. (Sadly, it was totaled in a multi-car accident and I walked away with relatively minor injuries in respect to the severity of the hits the poor Kia sustained). Also... I see that it will be AWD, rather than the manually engaged 4WD. Does anyone know if there is a manual override to lock in 4x4 mode like the system on the Escape/Tribute?
#84 of 704 No, but I read online tonight that the 2005

Sportage with the 2.0L 4 cylinder will be available in AWD only and 5-speed manual transmission. Works well for me! Will keep looking for clearance specs online and at Kia dealerships. Anyone find anything about the 2005 Kia Sportage please post it here!
#87 of 704 I just read that you can get a new 2005 Kia Sportage

with side-curtain airbags and 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 4WD available as an option. That little tidbit of information has solidly put this new rig as #1 on my list. Oh, the Long-Haul Warranty is still available? These guys are absolutely incredible.

#90 of 704 '05 Sportage diesel

I just read in a weekly car magazine that the '05 Sportage will be offered with a 2.4L inline 4, the 2.7 V6, and a 2.0L turbo diesel. Can this be true?? I was crushed to learn that the diesel option on the Jeep Liberty will add about $8000 to the price (the source of this information is from that same weekly car magazine).
Does anyone anyone else heard about this? I never imagined that I would desire so badly a Kia!!

The latest issue of Motor Trend has an article about the Sportage I think. (not quite sure)
