Available in three trims namely LX, EX, and SX Turbo, Kia has completely redesigned the Sportage crossover giving an attractive and modern look inside-out, loads of technology, safety, and comfort amenities.

2017 Kia Sportage Buying Advice
The redesigned 2017 Kia Sportage marked the start of a new generation, which comes with updated interior and exterior styling, more interior room, and several more standard and available features and technology. The 2018 and 2017 models are mostly similar, apart from some new features in the former. Therefore, we recommend the 2017 Sportage instead of a 2018 model. If you are thinking of opting for an older model, though it will save money it will be a significantly different vehicle. The popular Sportage EX offers the best value for money but if you can shell more money, the SX Turbo's performance is something more desirable.
