Receiving positive feedback about your hard work is such a nice feeling, even when you are a top automotive company. The 2017 Kia Sportage recently won the Best Buy of the Year award in the Small SUVs/crossovers segment of the Kelley Blue Book’s More than 300 vehicles were tested and evaluated before determining the winner in each segment, so this award speaks volumes of the value of the 2017 Kia Sportage.

“The all-new 2017 Sportage has improved in all the right areas, from its expressive styling and functional interior to its refined performance,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA. “To be recognized by the experts at Kelley Blue Book as a Best Buy among some of the toughest competition demonstrates the all-new Sportage is a breed apart from the CUV segment.”

The Kia Sportage has distinct European styling, innovative packaging, a powerful engine, and an interior packed full of technology. This vehicle was also named an Insurance Institute of Highway Safety Top Safety Pick Plus this year and has continued to impress ever since. Its year over year sales have increased 59.3 percent. Kelley Blue Book specifically cited the versatility, ease-of-use and laudable utility in a fun-to-drive of the Kia Sportage. “Its value-price and the length and comprehensiveness of its warranty were also keys to its 2017 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award win in the red-hot Small SUV/Crossover category,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book.
