2017 Kia Sportage Lehighton, PA
Thanks to a brand-new design, the 2017 Sportage looks distinctive from any angle. From the bold new grille to the athletic stance and the luxurious attention to detail. This is the car for the urban adventurer who wants to roll out in style. For passengers of the Sportage, comfort and control are main priorities. Kia has incorporated new soft-touch materials everywhere in the interior. Buttons and screens are all subtly pointed at the driver’s seat to make you feel like the center of the universe.
The Sportage’s standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine makes 181 hp and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. Longtime Kia fans will notice that those figures are each 1 less than the output of last year’s model. That’s because the engine has been optimized for improved fuel economy. It now achieves 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, for a combined average of 26. Compare that to the 2016 model’s 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 24 mpg average.
