2011 Kia Sportage Priced at $18,295

July 29, 2010

2011 Kia Sportage At $18,295, the newly redesigned 2011 Kia Sportage may be more expensive than the 2010 model ($1,600 more), but it's still a great deal compared to competitors Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Rouge.

The Sportage comes in three trim levels: Base, LX and EX, each with a potent 176-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four cylinder mated either to a six-speed manual (available only on the base model) or six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard.

The SX trim gets a 270-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (available later this month).

The base model comes with cruise control, Bluetooth, air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels and power windows, locks and mirrors.

The LX costs $20,295 and comes with all of the above options plus automatic transmission, exterior mirrors with LED turn signals, keyless entry and tinted windows.

The EX starts at $23,295 and includes 18-inch alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, automatic folding rear seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, air-conditioned glove box and UVO (like Ford's Sync.)

(Tack on another $695 in destination fees on all the above prices.)

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
