2018 Sportage: Entertainment Options
Inside the Kia Sportage, it will be easy to access your favorite music or other entertainment you want to listen to through the 6-speaker audio system with the 5-inch touchscreen display or through Bluetooth® Wireless Technology Hands-Free Connectivity.
And for an even more customized connection from your smartphone to your Sportage there is the UVO connectivity system. With this, you can use Apple CarPlay™ to send texts on your iPhone® hands-free or talk to Siri®. And if you have a compatible Android smartphone, Android Auto™ will let you access a variety of apps as well and use Google Maps™.
You can also have exceptional sound quality by getting the available Harman Kardon® Premium Surround Sound with Clari-Fi™ System. This 320-watts and 8-speakers system has restoration technology that gives you a clear, concert-like listening experience.
Advanced Safety in the Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage also utilizes innovation in technology to help you navigate safely out on the roads. The Rear-Camera Display will show you a live image of the view behind your vehicle on your display when you put the Sportage in reverse.
You will also have Hill Start Assist Control to keep your car from rolling backwards when you are stopped on a steep hill and need to move your foot off the gas pedal to move again. As for descending down a hill, the Downhill Brake Control will engage the Anti-Lock Braking System to help you stay in control while going down a steep grade.
And to help you stay confident when you are behind the wheel, the available Kia DRIVE WiSE technology will assist you when called upon. Available driver-assistive technologies you can have equipped in the 2018 Sportage are:
- Parking Assist with Front and Rear Sensors
- Blind Spot Detection
- Lane Change Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
- Autonomous Emergency Braking
- Lane Departure Warning
The technology that is available inside the 2018 Kia Sportage doesn’t end there. Other features are provided to make your ride as comfortable as possible.
The available dual-zone automatic temperature control system allows you and your front passenger to set the temperature to what each of you individually enjoy it at. And this system also features the auto de-fog system that will remove any moisture that is on the windshield or front-door windows, so your view stays clear at all times.
There is also an available heated steering wheel and front seats, as well as available ventilated front seats for even more control over the temperature. And sit comfortably by adjusting the seat just the way you like it with the available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support.
