2017 Kia Sportage small SUV 30 mpg highway 240 HP Friendly Kia Tampa FL


2017 Kia Sportage Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL

When we say the Kia Sportage has never looked and performed better, we aren't messing around. The 2017 Kia Sportage, which is available on dealership lots nationwide and in Tampa FL, including the Clearwater and St. Petersburg area, has been redesigned, upgraded and improved for the new model year. Granted, with a machine this fine, there wasn't much to improve on in the first place. So if you're looking for a small SUV and you want power, cargo room and nice design, the Kia Sportage is your ride.

Take for example the 2017 Sportage's redesign, with "ice cube" fog lights and a leaner look overall. The roofline is crouched like a panther and extends to the front to highlight a powertrain with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 240 HP in the new-for-2017 SX Turbo model option. Base LX and EX models come with 181 HP and all models can tow 2,000 pounds, so we're looking at top-notch performance for the small SUV class. Also improved for 2017 is the cargo room, with 60.1 cubic feet so you have even more room to pack your bags for that epic trip with friends.


A wider wheelbase, more interior room with 39.3 inches of headroom and 41.5 inches of legroom in front and bold LED lights make the 2017 Kia Sportage a nice-looking crossover.


Cargo Room

60.1 cubic feet of space in the rear of the 2017 Sportage equals 1700 liters of room for you to pack shopping bags, luggage, or a big box of puppies, and you'll still have room to spare.


Fuel Economy

You'll save even more money on gas with the 2017 Sportage, which averages 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway in base LX models, about 10% better fuel economy than in 2016 models.
