This new engine improved acceleration and fuel economy. The vehicle ride became more comfortable and quiet. Copared with the previous generation, the overal finish, quality and performance were improved. The 2.0-litre I4 diesel engine was not available in the United States. The Kia Sportage came only as a four-door sport utility vehicle. The second generation Sportage recieved a maximum rating in crash tests as per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to 2009 Consumer Reports, the Kia Sportage became one of the most reliable vehicles.
