The all-new 2017 Sportage wraps a stunning and contemporary design around a structure that is both stiffer and more spacious than ever before.
Advanced driver assistance technologies, significant suspension and steering improvements, and available intelligent AWD vastly improve the Sportage's driving dynamics while premium materials and world-class craftsmanship create a class-up experience in an otherwise utilitarian segment.
The Sportage is roomier, more luxurious cabin features an impressive level of craftsmanship, with high-quality, soft-touch materials and a range of technologies improving overall comfort, convenience, and connectivity.
The 2017 Sportage remains instantly recognizable thanks to its sloping roofline and sharply raked rear window. Short overhangs and wheels pushed to the corners continue to be signature Sportage design elements, while a longer, more aerodynamic spoiler and bolder wheel arches give the compact crossover utility vehicle a more dynamic appearance. Inside, the new Sportage's driver-oriented cockpit features a simple and modern design with clean horizontal lines emphasizing a more spacious interior.
Efficiency and driving performance were two major areas of focus when retuning the GDI engines. The hard-charging 2.0-liter inline-four turbo found on the FWD SX Turbo makes 240 horsepower (237 on AWD models) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and has been retuned to target improved fuel efficiency and offer better midrange torque. The LX and EX use a normally aspirated 2.4-liter engine that produces 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque and is also retuned to target better fuel efficiency. Both FWD and AWD variants are coupled with an updated six-speed Sportmatic transmission.
