2017 Sportage is here!

The all-new Kia Sportage.

The 2017 Kia Sportage is shaping up to be the one that they all have to beat. It’s just right. Sporty-driving, but without a sacrifice in ride; versatile and accommodating in all the right ways; and far quieter and more refined than its predecessor.

It’s the fourth generation and the marque has made quite a name for itself with its Optima mid-size sedan and Sorento crossover; and now the brand has brought some of the same refinement magic that’s graced recent redesigns of those models into the Sportage, Kia’s compact crossover model that takes on models such as the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Ford Escape.

Design-wise,  the Sportage is flamboyant, but not so much as to ever impress as garish or over-the-top. There is,  maybe a little too much of an overt, kitchy sci-fi look to the front lamps, though we’ll give credit where credit’s due for being truly bold.  

Overall, the stance is sportier; the affect of pushing the wheels farther out to the corners, while the sides are more deeply sculpted than before, and the upright rear pillar's been re-proportioned for a squatter, more substantial look, more like the one on the current Kia Soul. 

This generation keeps the flattened upkick to the rear door cuts; a design choice that’s also functional in yielding easier ingress and egress.  And inside, it’s all about bringing in more soft-touch surfaces, better trims, and a layout that’s somewhat sporty and cockpit-oriented and pointed towards the driver, slightly, yet pushed out at the corners for more passenger space.
