Since its debut in 1993, the Kia Sportage has thrived in the ultra-competitive SUV market. It has been able to accomplish this by meeting the widespread customer need for a smaller version of full-size SUV, albeit with their main attributes still in place. For 2017, Kia redesigns the Sportage for its fourth production cycle. The crossover vehicle now has three trims: the LX, the EX, and the SX Turbo.

Interior

2017 KIA Sportage Interior Designed and marketed as a compact crossover vehicle, the 2017 Kia Sportage accommodates as many as five adult occupants. Cargo volume in particular is measured at 60.1 cubic feet, and you can always create more space for luggage by folding down the rear seatback. Upgrading to the mid-level EX adds 10-way power adjustability with power lumbar support on the driver's seat, front-seat heating capability, and leather seat covering. And if you move up to the top-level SX Turbo, you also get front-seat cooling capability, steering-wheel heating capability, and 8-way power adjustability on the front passenger seat. At the base level, the Kia Sportage's infotainment comprises a six-speaker stereo system with a 5-inch touchscreen. The EX is upgraded with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay apps to enable you to use your smartphone to control the stereo's head unit. Also, on the EX, a 7-inch color touchscreen replaces the 5-inch display. On the SX Turbo, Kia installs an 8-speaker Harman/Kardon system with an 8-inch color touchscreen. There are a couple of interior conveniences that include Bluetooth, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and steering wheel-mounted controls. Kia adds push-button engine start system, dual-zone automatic climate control with an auto defog system, and a super-fast smartphone-charging USB 2.1 port on the EX. The SX Turbo is unique with its navigation system, HD Radio, a SiriusXM radio subscription, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rear mirror, and a remote garage door opener and closer.

Exterior

Combining sharp edges and smooth surfaces that recall the design language of modern fighter jets, the brand-new, 2017 Kia Sportage is an absolute delight to see. Plus, instead of putting together pieces of metal on the frame, Kia uses a steel unibody construction for the Sportage so that it has true strength and integrity. At the front of the vehicle, there's a black-and-chrome grille flanked by automatic projector beam headlights, which Kia upgrads to bi-xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs on the SX Turbo. Going with the EX adds fog lights, which halogen bulbs are replaced by LEDs on the SX Turbo. By the front doors, the power-adjustable side mirrors get heating capability on the EX and LED turn-signal indicators on the SX Turbo. On the top of the Sportage are sturdy roof rails if you go with the EX, and they are joined by a panoramic sunroof if it's the SX Turbo. A spoiler hovers at the back of the SUV. On the SX Turbo, the rear spoiler is joined by LED combination lamps, a chrome-finished dual exhaust system, and a smart power liftgate. Sportage alloy wheels are 17 inches, 18 inches, and 19 inches on the LX, EX, and SX Turbo, respectively.
