Just when you thought the Kia Sportage couldn’t get any better, it does. The 2017 Kia Sportage was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in April. This is the fourth-generation Sportage, and it boasts an updated design, new technologies, improvements in suspension and steering, and is more spacious than the previous Kia Sportage.

There are two engines to choose from on the 2017 Kia Sportage. The LX and EX models have a 2.4L engine that produces 181 hp and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, and the SX turbo model features a 2.0L inline-four turbo engine that produces 241 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The ride quality of the 2017 Kia Sportage is smooth and stable. It has a redesigned independent front suspension, an independent rear suspension that has dual-member shock absorbed housing, and is offered in front or all-wheel-drive.

Inside you’ll find spaciousness never before seen in a Kia Sportage. Passenger space and cargo space has increased, and with options like three-level front seat heaters, 10-way power control with lumbar control for the driver’s seat and eight-way passenger control for the passenger seat, you won’t want to arrive at your destination too quickly.

Advanced technology is packed into the 2017 Kia Sportage. There are available features that increase safety like autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning system, blind sport detection with lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and Bi-HUD headlights with dynamic bending light technology. There are a wide variety of entertainment technologies that come standard, like a 5-inch color touchscreen with Bluetooth and rear camera display in the LX trim level, and a 7-inch touchscreen with UVO3 in the EX trim level. UVO features 14 telematics services, up to 8 GB of music storage, onscreen apps and Wi-Fi tethering capability.
