Kia Announces Pricing for 2017 Sportage
In the automotive industry, it can be difficult to find the perfect mixture of space, technology, and a low price tag—until now. Kia just announced the pricing for the all-new 2017 Sportage crossover, and it’s hard to believe.
The Korean carmaker is selling its popular crossover with a starting price of $22,990. That’s cheaper than some sedans out there.
“In 2015, the final year of production for the outgoing Sportage crossover model, sales were up 25%, which speaks to the appeal and staying power of that vehicle, and with our aggressive pricing strategy for the all-new 2017 model, we’re looking to continue that momentum,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP for Kia Motors America. “In a segment that’s primarily known for utility, we see the Sportage as a very compelling offer to those looking for stand-out design, intelligent packaging, and engaging driving dynamics.”
Kia is making sure that, just because you’re paying an affordable price, doesn’t mean you’re not still getting some pretty awesome standard features. The $22,990 FWD Sportage LX comes with a variety of standard technologies and features, including LED Daytime Running Lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, chrome window surround, 5-inch touchscreen with Rear Camera Display, Bluetooth, a keyless entry system, and much, much more.
Along with these awesome standard features, the base-level Sportage also comes standard with a four-cylinder engine that churns out 181 horsepower, and is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Space, technology, and a low cost? Really, Kia is just pulling all the punches for its newest model year.
