The Kia Sportage has been one of the most popular crossover SUV platforms that the automaker has ever produced. Kia put the Sportage through a mild refresh process last year. However, that hasn’t stopped the automaker from making even more changes to the 2021 Kia Sportage in Kenosha, WI that is coming to Palmen Kia. When the 2021 Sportage is available, it will feature a couple of new high-end accessory packages, called the Nightfall Edition and Nightfall Edition Premium. These packages can be applied to the S trim and owners will see piano black accent pieces added to the front bumper, side sills, skid plates and fog light housing. From there, the automaker is carrying over everything that has made the Sportage such a strong performer in a very competitive segment of the automotive industry.
