Compared to its previous versions, the 2017 Kia Sportage is quite luxurious and stylish with its looks. It truly exudes the vibe of a sporty compact SUV with a sloping roof, Kia’s signature tiger nose grille, and an overall aerodynamic shape to reduce drag. This is the fourth generation model of the Sportage that comes with an SX turbo model, a Front Wheel Drive Model, and an All Wheel Drive model.
Good Looking Controls Inside
One of the most notable features of the Sportage is its sharply designed knobs for audio, climate functions, and other similar tasks. While it may look old-school, drivers would appreciate the company for integrating easier to use switches and knobs over touch-based systems that require precision of control while driving.
In addition, the switchgear and the display screen have been angled towards the driver’s seat for better visibility.
Another great aspect of the 2017 Kia Sportage is its extremely luxurious interior that comes with a heated steering wheel and climate-controlled seats for maximum comfort. You also have a Harman/Kardon audio system. Lastly, you have the power tailgate that is usually found in full-sized SUVs.
This version of the Sportage comes with two engine options. The base model is equipped with a 2.4 liter engine producing up to 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The other option is of a 2.0 liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that gives out around 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The 2017 Kia Sportage is definitely a winner when it comes to mid-size or compact SUVs. Why not visit a Kia dealership in Albuquerque and try the Sportage yourself?
