2020 Kia Sportage 2.4L Inline 4-Cylinder Engine

The primary engine available on the 2020 Kia Sportage is a 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine. This 181-horsepower engine comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and is able to generate up to 175 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, this engine comes standard with front-wheel drive. The 2.4L engine can achieve an EPA-estimated city fuel economy rating of 23 mpg and an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg.

The 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine can be upgraded with the optional Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system. With this AWD system equipped, the 2.4L engine offers slightly lower fuel economy of 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The LX, S, and EX trim levels of the 2020 Kia Sportage come standard with the 2.4L engine option.

2020 Kia Sportage 2.0L Turbo Inline 4-Cylinder Engine

The 2020 Kia Sportage secondary engine is a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. This engine offers more power, 240 horsepower, and more torque, 260 pound-feet, than the 2.4L engine option. However, this engine—paired with the 6-speed transmission and front-wheel drive—offers a lower EPA-estimated fuel economy in the city and on the highway. The 2.0L turbo engine can achieve a city fuel economy rating of 20 mpg and a highway fuel economy rating of 28 mpg.

Like its counterpart, the 2.0L turbo inline 4-cylinder engine can be paired with the Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system. When paired with this AWD system, the 2.0L turbo engine achieves fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The SX-Turbo trim level is the only trim level of the 2020 Kia Sportage that features the 2.0L turbo inline 4-cylinder engine.
