2017 Kia Sportage Dog-Friendly Features Smart Power Liftgate
The 2017 Kia Sportage has ran the gamut from great to exceptional this model year, with improved fuel economy and cargo room, as well as awards from Cars.com for “Best New Compact SUV” and Kelley Book’s KBB.com for “Best Buy” – Small SUV. But there’s more to this urban SUV, as the new commercial “Smart Power Liftgate – Dog Walkers” so ably demonstrates.
If you are unable to reach for the rear hatch of your vehicle, the Sportage has an available feature where the liftgate will open if it senses your Smart Key is nearby. See how handy this feature is for people with their hands full in their roles as dog walkers, below!
Smart Power Liftgate – Dog Walkers Commercial
As the commercial shows, the 2017 Kia Sportage will respond and open its Smart Power Liftgate in trim options with the feature – it is optional in the EX trim and standard in the SX Turbo trim.
Just a few ways how the Smart Power Liftgate comes in handy:
- Your hands are full of groceries.
- You are placing large items into the back of the vehicle for a move.
- If you are bringing a pet (or pets) along for a drive, or for a trip to the vet.
- There’s also a programmable height adjustment, so the liftgate can open wider or more narrow, depending on your preference.
Plus, with features likes the 2017 Sportage’s 34.8-foot turning circle and 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway, plus its ample room in back (60.1 cubic feet), this is an overall versatile vehicle for your next adventure!
