The Turbo model comes in at 21 city/26 highway with FWD and 20 city/23 highway with AWD.
Design of Kia Sportage
The highlight of the 2017 Kia Sportage is its interior space. The newly designed dashboard has a feel of luxury, as well as a sporty look. Materials are of high quality throughout. The base level model, called the LX, provides all the features one would expect for an entry level model, and in many cases, provides everything that a driver would want. It comes standard with Bluetooth, a USB port, an auxiliary input jack, satellite radio, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, and a touchscreen. Move up to the EX trim level and you will get features such as 18-inch wheels, heated mirrors, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, a rear USB charging port and a 7-inch touchscreen with the latest version of Kia's Uvo infotainment system.

It rides on 19-inch wheels and comes standard with adaptive xenon headlights, LED foglights and taillights, a hands-free power tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, LED interior lighting, a navigation system, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and more. The Sportage is a leader in its class for passenger space and comfort. The driver and front passenger have plenty of head and legroom.
