The Kia Sportage isn't pure SUV nor is it all sport, it fits a niche between driving to work and touring the Rockies during winter. Thanks to its fun-to-drive temperament, the 2012 Kia Sportage is a realistic alternative to other small crossover SUVs on the market. Yet, this year it has earned a decided edge in that particular category. The 2012 Kia Sportage garnered the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's top safety rating, making Kia's compact SUV the latest vehicle to earn an overall five stars out of five in NHTSA's crash tests.

The NHTSA recently adopted more stringent guidelines and rigorous testing practices, making the Sportage's accomplishment that much more impressive. In fact, for the entire 2012 model year, only 11 total vehicles were awarded NHTSA's highest combined star rating.

The Kia delivers intelligent styling inside and out, and we can't forget the aforementioned fun factor which makes it more enjoyable to drive than many other crossovers. It offers a powerful and efficient turbo engine option in SX trim, and lots of premium features with intuitive controls. An additional crossover advantage for both the 2011 and 2012 Kia Sportage with 2.0 liter engine is enhanced performance benefits, gained by merely swapping the OEM air filter with K&N's 33-2469 reusable replacement air filter.

K&N's 33-2469 reusable replacement air filter fits into the existing air box just like the stock factory filter, no modifications of any kind are required. K&N replacement air filters have low restriction and less restriction can result in power and torque all while the filter provides outstanding air filtration.

The K&N 33-2469 can be used for up to 50,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. It comes with a million mile limited warranty. That's how much faith K&N puts into their product. Hello fun and performance, adios dirty, coughing engine.
