The 4th generation of Kia’s longest-running nameplate has arrived. The all-new 2017 Sportage resides in the ultra-competitive compact crossover utility segment and has upped its game with a stiffer structure, new suspension, advanced driver assistance systems and premium materials. The wheelbase and overall length has been stretched leading to more space and comfort as well as substantially increased cargo capacity. Listening to owners, Kia also mounted the side mirrors lower on the doors and have used thinner A- and C-pillars to improve outward visibility. Noise, vibration and harshness have been reduced as has wind noise. With a starting price of $23,885 including destination, the Sportage doesn’t skimp on tech with a wide range of available features headlined by a forward collision warning system and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
