Kelley Blue Book recently published a list of the 12 best family cars, and the 2017 Kia Sportage made the list. With a combination of comfort and quality interior with an affordable price, the Kia Sportage is an excellent compact SUV for families. Let’s take a look at it from the top.

Power

The standard engine for the 2017 Kia Sportage is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that generates up to 181 horsepower and has an average fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway. Buyers that want a little more kick can opt for the Sportage SX Turbo that is equipped with a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, but the 2.4-liter is already pretty powerful. Available on a front-wheel drivetrain or all-wheel drive, both engines are paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Trims and Price

First thing’s first – how many choices does each vehicle provide, and what is the cost to own? The 2017 Kia Sportage SUV is available in three trims and the base trim starts at $22,990.

The 2017 Kia Sorento SUV is available in seven trims. The MSRP starts at $25,400 and climbs through the lineup.
