2015 KIA Sportage OEM Workshop Service Repair  Manual Within the compact crossover class, the 2015 Kia Sportage is one of the most interesting options from a dynamic and stylistic point of view. Standbys like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 have had longer to evolve, perfecting their craft, but the Kia is fun, even if it isn’t the most space-efficient or practical choice.

Last year brought a mild exterior freshening as well as some additions to standard equipment. The grille and wheel designs were new for 2014, along with new HID headlamps and LED taillamps. It continues into 2015 unchanged, which is just as well since this is one of the more interesting designs in the segment. 2015 KIA Sportage OEM Workshop Service Repair  Manual.

Kia’s entry has no history of SUV roots to uphold, leaving it free to offer a more interesting driving experience in a carlike package. Off-roading isn’t on the activities list for this small crossover, nor is it likely expected of its buyers.

A choice of two four-cylinder engines is available. All-wheel drive is an option across the board, and comes with a differential lock that splits power 50:50 at speeds up to 25 mph.

This manual covers every service and repair imaginable, from oil changes to rebuilding the transmission.

At the base level, the 2.4-liter direct-injection in-line four makes 182 hp. The six-speed automatic isn’t the quickest-shifting, but it’s measured and smooth.

Go for the turbocharged SX, and its 260 hp and hefty mid-range torque are enough to break the front wheels loose from a standing start or out of a tight corner. The automatic gets shift paddles for less distracted driving and better response. 2015 KIA Sportage OEM Workshop Service Repair  Manual

Cabin noise and ride quality have been weaknesses for the Sportage, compared to most other models in its class; but with Kia’s introduction of more noise insulation as well as new high-performance dampers, we’re hoping this will change (and we’ll update our impressions here). EX and SX versions got more sophisticated shocks for 2013, which made a modest improvement. Keep in mind, the big, optional 18-inch wheels don’t help. One of our other ongoing complaints with the Sportage–electric power steering that’s a bit too far on the heavy and lifeless side–was addressed for 2014 with the introduction of a new multi-mode Flex Steer system. It allows the driver to switch between three levels of steering weight, but doesn’t do much if anything to improve feel.

The Sportage lands at the small end of its class, and there’s no magic that makes the interior feel any roomier. But there’s good leg and shoulder room in front (subtract some headroom for the sunroof); and the seats themselves are well-shaped and can be air-cooled on high-line Sportages. Back-seat passengers may be a little tight on headroom and find themselves slumped.
