Behind the Wheel: 2013 Kia Sportage SX
It's not often when you see automakers taking risks with mainstream products like the 2013 Kia Sportage SX. It looks like nothing else on the road. Weighing a relatively svelte 3,300 pounds and sending 260 turbocharged horsepower to the wheels, it goes a good bit faster than most of its competition. The Kia Sportage was introduced in its current generation in 2011, but it's now the oldie of the Kia lineup with a new Cadenza full-size sedan, Forte compact, and refreshed Optima and Sorento on their way, if not here already. Still, with a host of technology at a reasonable price, it's not like it's a bad deal, either. We had a 2013 Kia Sportage SX for a week, poring over every curve in its sheetmetal and checking out every feature. On paper, it looks to be a winner. But like NCAA brackets, things can change when the game is played in real-time. Read our Road Test of the 2013 Kia Sportage SX to see how.
