2017 Kia Sportage

It’s easy to see why car buyers around the country are quickly embracing the new Kia Sportage crossover. When it comes to these two members of the Kia SUV family, the Kia Sportage is the nimbler, more efficient, and more affordable model in the lineup. Its 26 EPA estimated combined MPG lets you get the stylish sport utility vehicle you’re after, without the worry of high fuel costs and short times between visits to the pump. Extreme confidence also comes standard in the Kia Sportage, with available Dynamax™ all-wheel drive system, and Iso-Structure™ steel unibody for a flexible yet secure ride when traveling off the beaten path. Ultimate intelligence is found throughout the cabin, with state-of-the-art driver assistance and entertainment at your fingertips. And all for a starting price under of $25k, the Kia Sportage is clearly on top of its game.


2017 Kia Sorento

Research-oriented Kia shoppers typically compare the Sportage to its considerable counterpart, the Kia Sorento, which packs a more powerful punch with 185 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. The Sorento is also certainly suited for shoppers seeking sizable storage space. With over ten cubic feet greater of maximum cargo volume than the Sportage, it’s ideal for the family hauling multiple strollers or the couple with numerous furry friends. Beyond its relative largesse, the Kia Sorento has three separate engine options to fully customize your driving experience. One such available scenario, for the haulers out there among you, includes a 3.3-liter V6 AWD with up to 5,000-pound towing capacity. Overall, the Kia Sorento’s unique sophistication is found throughout, from the available Smart Power Liftgate to the available Surround View Monitor, which controls four mounted cameras to give you a birds-eye view of your vehicle. When considering all of the above, it’s obvious that the Kia Sorento is the perfect getaway vehicle.
