Vehicle Overview

Arapahoe Kia is the premier Kia dealership serving Denver Littleton Aurora Centennial Colorado, and our team is thrilled to announce the arrival of the 2021 Kia Sportage. Midway through the Sportage's fourth generation, Kia has decided to shake things up a bit. Last model year got some exterior refinements, including new wheel designs, and tweaks to the cabin as well. With the 2021 model, Kia has eliminated the S Sunroof and S Premium packages and replaced them with the Nightfall Edition and the Nightfall Edition Premium. Otherwise, this remains the crossover you know and love: spacious seating up front and in the back, ample cargo space, plenty of technologies and a smooth, fun ride!

Safety - 2021 Kia Sportage dealer

The IIHS had not yet rated the 2021 model when we wrote this review, but in terms of safety, this is essentially the same vehicle that earned Top Safety Pick honors last model year. A big reason for this is the sheer amount of base tech the automaker includes with the 2021 Kia Sportage near Denver: a Kia Uvo infotainment system, an 8-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, Bluetooth capabilities, Android and Apple integration, USB ports and so forth. The base LX also gets automatic headlamps and high beams, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, lane departure mitigation and driver attention monitoring.
