Built for life’s adventures, the new Kia Sportage does not disapoint. Kia has spent countless hours and research refining every component on this vehicle. The Sportage achieves the perfect mixture of being luxurious, efficient, rugged, and practical. It has also achieved 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award as well as 2016 Red Dot Award for Product Design.
Kia takes a powerful approach with the Sportage. All Wheel Drive models of the Sportage come standard with the Dynamax Smart All Wheel Drive System. This advanced driving system uses sensors on each wheel to constantly monitor road conditions and transfer power accordingly. This power transfer happens between all four wheels independently, not just front and back like other “all-wheel drive” systems. This technology also contributes to more stability around curves even on normal road conditions.
The Sportage comes with two powerplant options. The two engines consist of the more fuel efficient 2.4L 4-cylinder engine at a reasonable 181 hp, and the more powerful 2.0L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine boasting 240 hp. The LX and EX models come standard with the 2.4L engine, while the SX Turbo model gets the 2.0L engine. Both engines have been meticulously engineered to reduce friction and weight to improve efficiency, performance, and reliability. Coupled with the upgraded 6-Speed automatic transmission and key brake enhancements, the finished product is one that will for sure impress.
The innovation doesn’t stop with the powertrain and exterior. Inside you will experience an interior specifically design with every functional need in mind. With the ease of use, scientifically engineered, and just down right comfortable seats, you’ll be well suited for long expeditions. From the driver seat, you’ll notice a dash specifically geared to driver perspective making it easy to quickly adjust anything you need.
If you get all of the packages, the New Sportage comes packed with innovative technology.
As you approach the liftgate, the Smart Power Liftgate simply detects the key in your pocket or purse and opens the door automatically without you having to push any buttons or make any publically entertaining motions with your hands full.
The new Sportage knows your boundaries. With the optional Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), the vehicle will monitor vehicles in front of you to prevent a collision or, if unavoidable, reduce the impact.
With the available drivers-assistance technology, you can experience true convenience that you can count on. The new Sportage now has the capability of watching your blind spot with BSD (Blind Spot Detection), warning against and gently correcting accidental lane drift with LDWS/LCA (Lane Departure Warning System/Lane Change Assist), and helping you park with Front- and Rear-Parking Assist.
The new Sportage now comes optionally equipped with Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. Just plug your device into the USB port and enjoy full voice-activated integration with your device.
Kia continues to raise the standard by producing sophisticated, feature-rich, and safe vehicles. The 2017 Sportage is a perfect example of where Kia is headed as a brand.
