Re: KIA Sportage info....help???
I don't own a kia, but I can answer a few questions for you.
Kia is owned by huyndai, and are south korean in origion, both of which are made there.
I don't know much about the engine, except that it's a 2.0L 4cyl. unfortunatley, that doesn't say much since there are some damned impressive n/a four cylinders out there, Nissan, Subaru and mitsubishi all have n/a four cylinders with between 162 and 175 bhp stock. Chances are though, given the general quality of kia's that I've driven, I would guess it's sporting just over 100hp/ft-lb.
