Each year car makers reveal bigger and better versions of their current lineup and if you're a car shopper, sometimes seeing the differences between the model years is difficult. Some models may have just one or two minor updates, however when it comes to the 2017 Kia Sportage vs 2016 Kia Sportage, the new model is by far the bigger and better version.
Redesigned for the 2017 year, the all-new Sportage offers drivers more function, convenience and versatility. Just in cargo space the 2017 Sportage has almost five more cubic feet of storage. The 2017 model is also more efficient with more added safety features as well. On the 2017 Sportage there are a number of advanced driver assistance systems available including Blind Spot Detection, Advanced Smart Cruise Control and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
A major convenience feature available in Kia's 2017 lineup is the latest version of UVO eServices. With the new system, found in the 2017 Sportage, drivers can connect to their smart phones using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
There are some features of the 2016 Sportage that have been carried over to the new model with only a few enhancements. The iconic Kia tiger nose grille has been given a facelift for the 2017 Sportage with the addition of an SX Turbo trim-exclusive design. You can also enjoy some of the same standard features available on the 2016 Sportage such as Drive Mode Select and Bluetooth.
