Stand Out in 2017 with the Kia Sportage

The 2017 Kia Sportage has improved on the technology and efficiency features available on the 2016 Kia Sportage. The 2016 Kia Sportage comes with UVO eServices on the SX trim, and is available as an option on the EX trim. The UVO eServices allow you to connect your phone, making it easy to make hands-free phone calls, listen to your music, and use navigation apps. The 2017 Kia Sportage, however, comes with the updated UVO3 software. Available on both the EX and SX Turbo trims, the UVO3 system gives you features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for quicker and easier smartphone connectivity, and access to applications like Pandora and navigation tools.

On top of all the improvements when it comes to the interior features, the engine capability has improved for 2017 Sportage as well. The new trim option, the SX Turbo, features a smaller engine than the other trim levels, but offers a boosted horsepower and torque rating, meaning it’s quicker and more powerful overall. The SX Turbo trim’s 2.0-liter turbo engine offers 241 horsepower, and up to 260 lb-ft of torque. The 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine on the EX and SX trims gets 29 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 miles per gallon in the city. This means you can choose the quick power of the turbo
