The Kia Sportage has been around for as long as Kia has been in Canada, and with every new generation it has gotten better and better. The 2017 Kia Sportage is the latest generation in the Sportage lineage, and it is packed with advanced technologies that make it safer than ever, while also being one of the most refined and fuel-efficient compact SUVs on the market.
Outside, the new 2017 Sportage offers a more modern design that stands out on the road. It’s muscular stance is complemented by its flowing lines, tiger grill in the front and various other esthetic features that ensure that we immediately recognize the 2017 Sportage on the road.
For example, the 2017 Kia Sportage features new headlights that include L.E.D. accents to help you see better, but also to help other vehicles see you better. Optional xenon headlights provide plenty of visibility even on a dark country road, and optional L.E.D. fog lights also help improve visibility, all the while giving the Sportage a unique a noticeably visual signature.
That said, the 2017 Kia Sportage is more than just a pretty face.
The 2017 Kia Sportage is the kind of vehicle that you can take anywhere, and that will always serve you well. Although it is comfortable and refined in city driving and on the highway, it is also very capable when driving off the beaten path.
For example, the 2017 Kia Sportage is offered with the Dynamax all-wheel drive system, once of the most advanced all-wheel drive systems on the market today. The new Sportage also gets a much more rigid chassis along with high-strength steel and a lighter assembly. That means that the Sportage is capable of handling a host of different situations.
The Sportage’s suspension has also been significantly tweaked, and is now a lot more comfortable in the city, but also sportier when driving at higher speeds. This means that you will feel a lot more in control when driving the 2017 Kia Sportage.
The 2017 Kia Sportage will continue to be offered with a base 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque in the LX and EX models. Then we have the new and very powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine is only available paired with all-wheel drive in the SX model, and needless to say that its performance is simply amazing.
