Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2010 Kia Sportage is a compact crossover SUV that's offered in LX and EX trim levels. Both are offered with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.

The entry-level LX comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, keyless entry and a flip-up rear window that opens independently of the liftgate. The interior features air-conditioning (except on four-cylinder base models), cloth upholstery, full power accessories, cruise control and a six-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with satellite radio capability and auxiliary audio/USB input jacks.

Pony up for the EX and you'll get 17-inch wheels, foglights, a sunroof, heated outside mirrors, upgraded cloth upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, plus a rear cargo area cover and a trip computer. The EX can be decked out with a Luxury package that adds choice extras including rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and an upgraded stereo with six-disc CD changer. A navigation system is also offered on EX models as a stand-alone option.
