This fourth-generation compact CUV features a refined interior, new design and improvements on ride and handling. Additional changes include an advanced driver assistance system, UVO3 and additional technological features.
Updates that you’ll notice right away across the line include soft-touch materials, a more spacious and luxurious cabin and better efficiency and performance. The new generation has three trim levels: the LX, EX and SX Turbo.
The 2017 Kia Sportage has new body panels, higher-positioned headlights, a new sharply detailed hood, lower and wider front clip for better cooling, and a new planted, aggressive stance. The width remains the same at 73 inches but the wheelbase is 1.2 inches longer at 105.1 inches. The overall length of the Sportage is now 176.4 inches, 1.6 inches longer than the 2016 model year.
The Sportage retained its sloping roof line and raked rear window, plus the signature short overhangs and wheels pushed out to the corners. The SX Turbo adds “ice cube” LED fog lights, LED tail lights, satin exterior trim, HID headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels and metal-look skid plates.
The interior now features a driver-oriented cockpit including a laterally designed dashboard, a color touch screen that is angled 10 degrees toward the driver, switches for the dual-zone climate control that are easily identifiable for the driver and secondary audio controls.
Additionally, the Sportage features leather on the EX and SX Turbo trim levels and a D-shaped heated leather-wrapped steering wheel on the SX Turbo.
The headroom has increased by 0.2 inches in the front and 0.6 inches in the rear. Legroom has also increased to 38.2 inches in the rear. You also have more cargo room, including a dual-level cargo floor and a wider luggage area. This increased the cargo room from 26.1 cubic feet to 30.7 cubic feet.
