Why Buy the 2017 Kia Sportage?
The 2017 Kia Sportage arrives this year fully redesigned. This means it has new styling, new technology, and new engineering. Buyers will particularly love its smooth and quiet ride, spacious interior, nimble driving, and appealing features.
Under the hood, the Kia Sportage comes with a choice of two engines. Buyers can choose between a 2.4-liter four-cylinder rated at 181 horsepower or a 240-horespower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The 2.4-liter engine comes standard on the LX and EX trims, while the SX Turbo is powered by the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission.
For drivers looking for a firmer hold on the road, all Sportage trims can be had with the available Dynamax all-wheel drive system. This system constantly tracks road and weather conditions to automatically adjust traction, as needed.
Inside, passengers will find a plush, comfortable cabin with fine craftsmanship in every detail. The seats have been redesigned to offer superior comfort and even come with scientifically-calibrated touch points.
Technology-wise, the Sportage will not disappoint. It is packed with features to please any modern driver. Options like the Autonomous Emergency Braking system, the Smart Power Liftgate, and Kia’s subscription-free UVO eServices will quickly become owner favorites.
