Kia Unveils All-New 2017 Sportage at the Los Angeles Auto Show
  • Full details of the 2017 Kia Sportage revealed at the LA Auto Show!

The all new compact cross over Sportage has a more rounded look redesigned for the 2017 model.

The latest Sportage by Kia was released back in August 2015. Now the full details regarding the car were revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2017 Kia Sportage has been completely redesigned in a ground up way.  

The all new Sportage has a more rounded look than the previous model. The grilles of the Sportage remain the same. The tiger nose grilles are the trademark feature of a Kia vehicle. 

The new Sportage is 1.6 inches longer but has the same width as its predecessor. The cabin of the Sportage as a result is more spacious. The cabin is also equipped with more upscale materials and with the latest technologies. The Sportage has been constructed with more high strength steel which helps to optimize rigidity.

The new 201 Sportage will be available in three different trims levels. The trim levels are labeled LX, EX, and SX Turbo. The LX and the EX Sportage will come with a 2.4-liter four good engine. The engine will produce 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.

The SX Turbo Sportage comes with a 2.0-liter turbo kicking engine which produces 241 hp and 260 lb-ft. All three trim levels have improved efficiency and have a six-speed automatic transmission. 

“Simply put, the Sportage is a breed apart in the compact CUV segment,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA.

“Instead of bland utility, the Sportage combines distinctly European and sporty styling with thoughtful design and functionality, including innovative packaging, premium materials, a turbocharged engine and surprising features. Sales of compact CUVs are on a sharply upward trajectory, and the all-new 2017 Sportage hits the sweet spot by providing an alternative for those seeking to express themselves with a vehicle that’s versatile enough to suit their unique lifestyle.” 

The price tag of the 2017 Kia Sportage has not been announced yet. The prices will be revealed by next year.
