So what can you expect from the 2017 Kia Sportage CUV? This vehicle will be offered in three trim levels the LX, the EX and the SX. Some features that come standard on the base LX trim include LED Daytime Running Lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, chrome window surround, rear privacy glass, 5-inch touchscreen with Rear Camera Display2, Bluetooth®3, 3.5-inch LCD cluster, keyless entry system, auto-on/off dual projector headlights, and Drive Mode Select (DMS). It is powered by a 181-horsepower GDI four-cylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. There are a variety of packages that will be available for you to choose from including the Popular Package, the Technology Package and the Cool & Connected Package.

“In 2015, the final year of production for the outgoing Sportage model, sales were up 25 percent, which speaks to the appeal and staying power of that vehicle, and with our aggressive pricing strategy for the all-new 2017 model, we’re looking to continue that momentum,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA.  “In a segment that’s primarily known for utility, we see the Sportage as a very compelling offer to those looking for stand-out design, intelligent packaging and engaging driving dynamics.”
