The 2017 Kia Sportage has been completely redesigned, addressing some concerns of previous models such as interior space and the smoothness of the ride. If you’re searching specifically with a family car in mind, the new Sportage is a superb choice that competes well with other compact crossover SUV’s.
Exterior and interior styling
The exterior of the Kia Sportage has been restyled to feature a bold, modern design. In addition, the new model is slightly bigger, which adds up to a much roomier interior, particularly for back seat passengers (an upgrade that makes the 2017 Kia Sportage especially family-friendly). The interior styling is very elegant, featuring leather upholstery, heated seats and steering wheel, and updated controls. The infotainment touch screen has also been updated, and now includes syncing with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Sportage has received a re-engineered suspension set up, making for a much smoother ride than previous models. In addition, features such as the optional Turbo engine, front or all-wheel-drive, electrically assisted power steering and noise-reducing interior insulation result in a great all round driving experience.
In terms of safety, the 2017 Kia Sportage is on a par with other compact SUV crossovers, offering features such as forward-collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.
