Dec 29, 2016 07:22 AM EST | Luna C


If one wishes to buy the 2017 Kia Sportage, then they will be in for a big, surprise as new owners will get more than what is expected. Kia has been working hard to earn consumer trust by considering bolder designs at a great price. The $33,000 EX AWD model will treat would-be buyers as it is pretty much loaded. There are also lower variants that still exceed expectations.

What are the overflowing features of the 2017 Kia Sportage?

The 2017 Sportage EX, for instance, will cost $27,000 but throws in a plethora of useful stuff. It already has shiny 18-inch wheels, leather seats that are heated (front only, power driver's seat that supports power lumbar), and last but not least: keyless access. There's also an option to choose a drive-mode; this is equipped on all 2017 Sportage. On top of that, there's the usual 5-year or 60,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first.

2017 Kia Sportage Dashboard

The 7-inch touchscreen may not occupy the dashboard well compared to the 8-inch variant but it does offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. That said, the audio/visual system will offer a handful of awesome features, according to Motor Trend. This includes a free Kia Sportage navigation system when hooked up with a smart phone - all it needs to work properly is a good data signal.

2017 Kia Sportage Premium Features

Kia car buyers can also add cash on top of the basic 2017 Kia Sportage price to get more goodies. The all-wheel-drive system will cost $1,500, a panoramic sunroof will cost another $1,900, other packages feature blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, power-folding side mirrors, heated steering wheel, LED interior lights, and a rearview mirror that automatically dims when a new driver does a high beam from the rear. The automatic emergency break system is also available for variants past the $31,000 price range.

The 2017 Kia Sportage features listed above are considered basic or sub-premium. For those who are willing to pay more, say the EX Premium package, expect more awesome features. More review stuff below:
