The new 2017 Kia Sportage is just as athletic and refined as previous model years; however, there are some unique features on this new model that owners will love. From performance to comfort, the new 2017 Sportage is designed to impress.
While still a compact crossover, the Sportage has some added size. The wheelbase has been extended to 105.1 inches, and the overall length is now up to 176.4 inches. This gives you a little more room inside as well, with more room for passengers and a surprising five cubic feet of cargo space. An auto-opening rear hatch is also an added bonus for owners that love convenience. This feature will let you easily open the rear as long as you have the key in your pocket.
The 2017 Sportage is also quieter thanks to added insulation and design measures. You can now ride down the highway in peace. The body shed weight as well, dropping 55 pounds thanks to the use of high-strength steel alloys. Thanks to this lightweight design and a re-engineered turbocharged engine, you get added torque and acceleration and overall performance.
The interior is elegantly crafted, with exclusive materials available. This is perhaps one of the most noticeable changes, with features like available perforated leather seating that is also climate-controlled, a heated steering wheel, and more. The vehicle is also compatible with updated entertainment systems like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as featuring a third-generation UVO system and available Harman Kardon speakers.
