See and Be Seen with the 2017 Sportage Exterior

Looking at the 2017 Sportage, you will see a modern compact crossover that avoids stereotypes of what this class should look like. The Sportage was completely redesigned for 2017 and it will likely set the standards other compact crossovers need to live up to. The side contours are elegant and pair nicely with the prominent wheel arches, striking grille, extended wheelbase, full-chrome window surround, and coupe-like roof. The result is the perfect combination of dynamic sportiness and sophistication with a hint of a premium feel. Never worry about seeing or being seen with the elongated headlights and optional quad LED foglights on the Sportage. The 2017 Sportage also offers an available Smart Power Liftgate that will automatically open when your key is near for the appropriate amount of time. Most drivers will find this even more convenient than the competitors’ foot-activated tailgate, as no balancing on one foot is required.

The 2017 Kia Sportage Interior Features

With the updates for the 2017 model year, the Kia Sportage’s interior got even better. There is premium craftsmanship at every turn, including upgraded seats that feature scientifically calibrated touch points and new soft-touch materials. The cabin is driver-oriented, with the console angled slightly in your direction and all the buttons and displays ergonomically optimized as well. The 2017 Sportage does more than just bring you and your friends or family everywhere in comfort; it also lets you take your stuff with you. The rear seats split 60/40 and fold flat, and there are multiple smart compartments spread throughout the cabin. When the rear seats are folded down, you get 60.1 cubic feet for your surfboard, skis, or other items. Even with the second row in place, you have 30.7 cubic feet for luggage and groceries. For added comfort wherever you go, upgrade from air conditioning to dual-zone automatic temperature control, which comes on all but the base trim. You can also upgrade from the standard 6-way adjustable driver’s seat to 10-way power adjustment plus power lumbar and 8-way power adjustment for the front passenger.

The Sporty Performance of the 2017 Sportage

The fun performance of the 2017 Kia Sportage begins with its engineering, with the Iso-Structure providing rigidity. This rigidity combines with other features such as the extended body insulation to give you a quieter, smoother ride. You can configure any Sportage trim with Dynamax all-wheel-drive, which senses then adjusts traction requirements based on the weather and road conditions as they change. Depending on the trim you choose, you will get one of two engines in this 2017 Kia. The standard 2.4-liter is a segment leader with its high output of 181 horsepower, or you can upgrade to the 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine on the SX Turbo.
