Does it run normally with the A/C off? The A/C takes a significant amount of power. Most noticeable on hills. The Sportage is heavy and the engine is somewhat underpowered. Add A/C and it's like dragging an anchor.

If you have a stick shift you'll have to downshift more to keep the rev's up. If you have an automatic you may want to select "power" mode.
