Best SUV Award
Cars.com is a popular online destination for car shopping and for new and information useful to car owners. For its 2017 Best New Compact SUV award, the Kia Sportage won and took the prize. The model won due to its luxury vehicle-like features, its accessible technology, expansive interior, and elegant styling.
The New Sportage
For better reference, the 2017 iteration of the Sportage features a front crash prevention structure to protect passengers. It has also improved with regards to its steering and suspension components. The 2017 Sportage is an All Wheel Drive with a 2-liter turbocharged engine, although you can also choose a trim with a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine.
New Hybrid on the Block
When the Sportage is not to your liking, you can always turn to Kia’s brand new subcompact hybrid SUV — the Niro. Although the Kia Niro is yet to arrive at dealerships soon, the hybrid is bringing in good reviews. According to a reviewer for one automotive website, the Niro offers an impressive set of features that embodies Kia’s strategy of delivering bang-for-your-buck products.
Five Different Trims
The Kia Niro comes in five trim levels, from the lowest: FE, LX, EX, Touring, and the limited-run Launch Edition. Across all trims, the hybrid packs a fuel economy of 50 miles per gallon. The 50 mpg is a combined highway 49 mpg and a city 50 mpg. You can choose the features you want in your Kia Niro depending on the trim level of choice. The Launch Edition trim is the most expensive level with the best features.
You can continue to shop for other SUVs on the market today. The 2017 Sportage of the new Niro of Kia, however, may just be the perfect new SUVs you have been looking for.
