Have you ever seen the Bradley Cooper movie, "Limitless"? The one where he pops pills, then writes a novel in days and beats the stock market, all because he has access to his full potential? Well, the 2017 Kia Sportage is much the same for the small SUV market, as it lives up to its full potential, and with none of the side effects of the pills that Cooper's character took. Exhibit A: The 2017 Sportage is available at Friendly Kia with our VIP Price for less than $19,000, while the competition is looking for more than $26,000 and up for the 2017 Terrain.
Exhibit B: The base 2017 Sportage model option can tow a ton - 2,000 pounds – while the 2017 Terrain can only manage 1,500 in base model options. Exhibit C: The 2017 Sportage has increased its fuel economy and available cargo room 10 percent from the 2016 model year, with a money-saving 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 60.1 cubic feet of cargo room.

Another example of this limitless behavior is the 2017 Sportage's available power, 240 HP, which dwarfs most small SUVs, let alone some of the competition's midsize SUVs. The 2017 GMC Terrain is a small SUV with about the same power in base model options as the 2017 Sportage, though it can go higher - except that it will cost you around $30,000 to $38,000 to move up to this peak power at the competition, while our Friendly Kia VIP Price is around $27,000 for a 2017 Sportage SX Turbo with 240 HP.
As further proof of the value of the 2017 Sportage, you get the industry's leading warranty, with your Kia covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles for limited powertrain warranty. If you want a small SUV with power, performance, sedan-like handling and a nice low price, then you need to go for the 2017 Kia Sportage. We carry the Sportage at Friendly Kia, 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL.
