2017 Kia Sportage Starts at $23,885

Aggressive Styling, Bigger Engines Differentiate It From Tucson

Feb 22, 2016
Emphasizing Kia’s positioning as the sportier, more expressive of the Korean auto brands, the 2017 Sportage comes to market with a mini-Macan front fascia and larger, more powerful engines than its Hyundai counterpart, the Tucson. Pricing also starts incrementally higher on the Sportage than the Tucson at $23,885 for an entry-level 2WD Sportage LX, compared to $23,595 for a 2016 Tucson SE.
The Sportage’s standard engine for 2017 is a direct-injected 2.4L I-4 making 181 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The SX Turbo sees the return of the sprightly 2.0L GDI turbo I-4, making 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The midpack EX model starts at $26,395 including destination, and the top-of-the-line SX turbo starts at $33,395 including destination. All-wheel drive is available on all trims for an additional $1,500. All-wheel-drive models feature a unique front fascia improving approach angle.
Multiple option packages are available ranging from the $900 Cool and Connected package, featuring dual-zone climate control with a 7-inch UVO touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, to the $2,700 Technology package, which features a 320-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system, front and rear park assist, power rear liftgate, lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking, ventilated front seats, and an eight-way power passenger seat.
