2021 Kia Sportage in Danbury, CT

What's New for 2021?

2020 was a big year for our popular crossover. Part of the fourth generation of models for this lineup, the 2020 Sportage received a redesigned frontend, a new rear design, and new safety and tech features standard. As a continuation of that redesign, the 2021 Sportage doesn't get any major updates or overhauls, and stays the course set by last year's model to deliver the quality and style Patterson, NY drivers love.

Trim Options for the 2021 Kia Sportage

When it comes to selecting the perfect Kia Sportage for your daily drives to and from Dutchess County, NY, there are four well-equipped trim levels for you to get to know and choose between. These include:
  • 2021 Kia Sportage LX
  • 2021 Kia Sportage S
  • 2021 Kia Sportage EX
  • 2021 Kia Sportage SX Turbo


Need a few more accessories than the standard equipment for each trim? The 2021 Kia Sportage makes it easy to personalize your ride, with a variety of special packages that are available for add-on. Availability is dependent on the trim level you choose, but some options include the Sunroof Package, which includes not only a panoramic sunroof, but also a windshield wiper de-icer and ambient interior lighting, and the Popular Package for the LX trim, which can equip any base model with sought-after features such as auto climate control and power-folding exterior mirrors


Depending on which of the above trims you prefer, there are two engines available for the 2021 Sportage. Both offer a smooth, responsive drive, with power you'll appreciate, and both have front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive available. Options include:

  • A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque that comes standard on the first three trims.
  • A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder offering 240 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque, that is unique to the top trim, the SX Turbo


A five-passenger, two-row crossover that's slotted size wise between the three-row Kia Sorento and the subcompact Kia Seltos, the Sportage fills a perfect niche for drivers who prefer smaller SUVs, but need a little more space and substance than a subcompact model offers. It has four doors and a wide-opening rear liftgate that makes loading cargo a breeze. Plus, with around 6.4 inches of ground clearance, it's high enough to easily handle any weather and driving conditions in Ridgefield or Carmel, NY, but not so high that you feel like you have to hoist yourself up into a large SUV or truck.


A small SUV that's easy to park and maneuver, the 2021 Sportage is anything but small on the inside. Slip inside the Sportage and marvel at not only its complete roster of features that keep you comfortable, but also its ample amounts of legroom and headroom to keep you, and your passengers happy. Additionally, with 30 cubic feet of space available with the seats up, and around 60 cubic feet with the seats folded, you can easily transport your cargo in this roomy crossover as well.
