Kia announced today that the pricing for the new 2011 Sportage CUV, will begin at $18,292 (plus a $695 destination charge) for the base trim which includes.

The new car will be available in three trims - Base, LX and EX - air conditioning, power windows, door locks and mirrors, SIRIUS Satellite Radio capabilities with three months complimentary service, MP3 connectivity and Bluetooth.

For the LX version of the Sportage which includes standard outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators and privacy glas, Kia announced a base price of $20,295.

The EX trim level offers a beginning price of $23,295 and includes features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Maybe not all of you folks know what the car has under the hood but we will describe it to you.

The all-new Sportage comes standard with a 2.4-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT), capable to deliver 176 hp and a better fuel economy (22/31) than the previous 2.7-liter V6 engine.
