2018 Kia Sportage Passenger and Cargo Storage
The new Kia Sportage crossover SUV offers passengers amazing comfort while being built for life’s adventures. The 2018 Sportage has a striking, driver-oriented design, expandable cargo and Smart Power Liftgate technology. Add in Kia’s great safety features, and the Sportage is a great vehicle for a family trip, offering great passenger and cargo storage.
The new Kia Sportage offers around 39 inches for head room, so you would have to be extremely tall to have crowded head space. The seats also offer a lot of hip room as well, giving those sitting in the back 51 inches in the seat. Plus, there is plenty of leg room—41 inches for those in the front and 38 inches for those in the back. The perfect size and comfort for a family road trip.
The rear-cargo can hold a lot of storage, up to 30 cubic feet. That means that you will have enough room to put in a cooler, some sleeping bags, a tent, and the other necessities for going camping. And putting the rear seats down will double that space! And there isn’t just that space, there is an under rear-cargo storage compartment, allowing for dual-level storing. You could store a road side safety kit there and be ready in case of an emergency.
Besides the rear storage area, there are also cup holders and a storage tray in the center console in the front, and even a sunglasses holder for the driver. The 2018 Kia Sportage also has a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds—giving another option for storing and transporting items.
