The Sportage is Well-Designed - Inside and Out

The Sportage's interior is thoughtfully designed, with great outward visibility. Well-designed storage cabinets abound, and there's a 12-volt power outlet and USB port for second-row passengers. Cargo space is quite good for a compact crossover: 30.7 cubic feet with the rear seat up and 60.1 cubic feet with it down.

Three Different Trim Levels, Each Well-Equipped

The 2017 Kia Sportage is available in three trim levels: LX, EX and SX Turbo. The base Sportage LX is well-equipped, with a 5-inch touch-screen display and rearview camera, 6-speaker AM/FM/CD player with USB input and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, drive mode selector (Sport, Normal and Eco), and automatic headlights. The mid-trim Sportage EX adds Kia's newest UVO infotainment system with 7-inch capacitive touch screen, CarPlay and Android Auto phone connectivity, power-adjustable driver's seat, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, roof rails and solar-control glass to reduce heat buildup. All Sportage models come with Kia's excellent 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

In addition to the lineup's most powerful engine, the top-line Sportage SX Turbo model includes many features that are optional on the EX: navigation with 8-inch touch screen, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, automatic emergency braking, panoramic sunroof, power liftgate with programmable height adjustment and hands-free operation, heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. The premium 320-watt harman/kardon sound system features Clari-Fi technology that improves the sound of digital music files.
