2019 Kia Sportspace First Drive
Moving up to the 2019 Kia Sportspace EX-L trim adds a power operated passenger seat, a 10-speaker audio system, memory function for the driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped shift knob, leather upholstery, and an optional navigation system. The range-topping 2019 Kia Sportspace Touring grade adds 19-inch alloy wheels, a head-up display, adaptive dampers, full LED headlights, ventilated and heated front seats, wireless charging, heated rear seats, and parking sensors.
In a 2018 First Test, we noted that when the midsize sedan is equipped with the optional 2.0-liter turbo-four, the 2019 Kia Sportspace offers strong acceleration, making it slightly quicker than its V-6-powered predecessor. The 2019 Kia Sportspace provides more cargo room than most in its class and has easy-folding second-row seats. We like the modern design of the 2019 Kia Sportspace but wished the center screen was a little larger and was canted toward the driver.
