If you are already looking ahead to your next vehicle and you want one from 2017, you can't go wrong with the fantastic 2017 Kia Sportage. Tackling the crossover SUV concept with full gusto, the 2017 Sportage is all about sporty-driving while also providing for an excellent ride, regardless of the model that you choose. You can choose between the base LX, the mid-range EX and the high-range SX, all which provide great power and fuel economy.
If fuel economy is important to you, the 2017 Sportage provides excellent 20 miles per gallon in the city, and 23 miles per gallon on the highway if you have the all-wheel drive on. If you are at the base LX model and only using front-wheel drive, the mileage increases to 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. If power is what you want, power is what you get with the LX and EX models using 181 horsepower, while the high-end SX uses a whopping 240 horsepower on its model.
Better steering and a more refined look than its predecessors, the 2017 Sportage is also bigger, adding a few inches from its previous model and even increases the wheel base by just over an inch.
If style is important to you, the Kia Sportage provides it to you. The sides of the vehicle are deeply sculpted, the entire vehicle looks sportier, and the high-end 19-inch wheels and fog lamps help to create a great look on the vehicle.
Thanks to its new sportier look, the Kia Sportage provides all-wheel drive that has a locking center differential to control the front-to-rear torque split.
Heading over to the comfort aspect of the 2017 Sportage, the power controls and seat warmers are nice accessories added onto all the models of the Sportage. If cargo space is what you want, then the 30.7 cubic feet of cargo space is going to work really well for you. If a smooth and quiet drive is what you want, you will love the new suspension refinements of the 2017 Sportage, coupled with the soundproofing that is thicker than ever to provide a quiet drive even on a gravel road.
Safety is more important than anything and the 2017 Kia Sportage improves on its already-great predecessor with a strong safety rating. It has received a top five-star rating overall by the federal government in all tests, and it has been given Good ratings in all categories by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It also received a Superior rating for its front crash prevention. As for the actual features, it has blind-spot detection, lane change assist, high-beam assist, autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, rear parking assist and much more. The body structure itself will keep your entire family safe while you drive.
If you want features, you get them with the 2017 Sportage that provides everything from smart key entry and push button start to an infotainment system that comes on an eight-inch display.
You can expect to start seeing a lot of 2017 Sportage's on the road this year and next, and you can be one of them today.
