ABS available, standard from 2005. ESC, side and head protection air bags standard from 2005.
The revived Sportage and its Hyundai Tucson cousin are both based on the Hyundai Elantra sedan. The base model comes equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. The 2.7-liter V6 model is priced below the four-cylinder versions of most competitors. It is very similar to the Hyundai Tucson, other than interior and exterior styling details and slight suspension tuning differences. ABS, stability control, and head-curtain air bags are all standard.
