The 2017 Kia Sportage Is Designed for Adventure
The 2017 Kia Sportage was truly designed to take you to all of life’s adventures with its compact crossover design. The Sportage catches the eye with sleek lines, contemporary features, and sweeping curves, and its dynamic design allows it to go nearly anywhere.
Kia’s Dynamax All-Wheel Drive
If your adventure will take you through less than ideal weather or poorly maintained roads, then opt for the Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system, which is available across the 2017 Sportage lineup. This system can actually sense your traction requirements and adjust them for the weather and road conditions. The system is predictive and never fully front-wheel drive. Instead, some power is sent to the rear wheels automatically. The system will divide the power 50:50 between the front and back when needed.
The 2017 Kia Sportage: Powerful and Efficient
With the choice of engines, the Kia Sportage always has enough power to take you to your destination with ease. The base LX trim and the EX run on a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. It gives you 175 pound-feet of torque and 181 horsepower. Opting for the Sportage SX gives you a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. It has 240 or 237 horsepower, depending on drivetrain, and 260 pound-feet. The Sport mode sharpens your throttle response if your idea of an adventure is just enjoying the drive.
Keeps You Safe on Adventures
With a range of standard and available safety features, the 2017 Kia Sportage is also ready to keep you safe when you go on any type of adventure. The available Autonomous Emergency Braking system works to prevent collisions or reduce their impact. Other available features include lane departure warning, lane change assist, parking sensors in the front and rear, blind spot detection, and a rear cross-traffic alert system.
