2017 Kia Sportage at Federico Kia of Wood River

Are you on the hunt for a new small crossover SUV? If so, we've got a great suggestion: the fully-redesigned 2017 Kia Sportage. The small crossover SUV segment is one of the most competitive around, and the new 2017 Kia Sportage's updates truly make it stand out in the class. First and foremost, Kia offers one of the best warranties on the market, including a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and 5-year or 60,000-mile basic warranty. The Sportage's remodel also has sharpened its looks by keeping its athletic stance and sloping roof but adding a new front end with Kia's signature 'tiger-nose' grille. The Sportage also offers plentiful high-tech comfort features, including sought-after smartphone integration capabilities. All of this is provided at a remarkably low price. To get a closer peek at the 2017 Kia Sportage, check out the information below!

Under the Sportage's Hood

The 2017 Kia Sportage carries over its previous two engine options but has included upgrades to them to improve fuel economy. The first engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that's rated to output 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, with fuel economy that can reach up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway when properly equipped. Alternatively, there's a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates an impressive 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and can reach up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway when properly equipped. Regardless of engine, every Kia Sportage model comes linked up to a six-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. If you have some light-duty towing to do, the 2017 Kia Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds.
