2017 Kia Sportage  limited

The Kia Sportage 2017 enters its fourth generation and with it brings a fun and fresh new design. Yes, it’s a bit pricier than its predecessors but it justifies this with a sleek new look and tons of great features.

The Sportage’s title is apt giving its sporty appeal and fashionable style and it has some noteworthy upgrades. It’s worth mentioning that the Kia Sportage 2017 has done away with manual transmission in all its trims which could be a big contributor to the price increase.

On the downside, the interior seems quite a bit smaller (the back suffers more than the front) and there are mixed feelings about the space in the boot being too little, however there is extra storage space under the boot floor and the rear setbacks are also easily folded down.

Let’s have a look at the specs on the three different trims.

The base level LX comes in at about $22,000 and packs 182 hp and 177 Ib-ft torque with a 2.4 litre 4-cylinder GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine. It also boasts 17” alloy wheels, ABS, cloth seat trim, air conditioning, auto on/off headlights, cruise control, airbags, a USB port and more.
