  • All controls are within easy reach of the driver; for both manual and automatic transmissions, the gear lever is located within easy reach on the center console.

  • The Sportage scores on the safety front by including standard four-wheel disc brakes, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front occupants and front and rear head-protecting curtain airbags.

  • The stylish interior features quality materials and great ergonomics.

  • ...offers generous interior space for passengers and cargo, a benefit of its long wheelbase. Its design also allows the doors to be wider than they might otherwise be for better access, especially in the rear seats.
