One of the biggest determining factors of choosing which trim level you want is choosing how much power you need. With the LX and EX, you’ll get a 2.4L I-4 engine that produces 181 hp. But, if you upgrade to the SX Turbo, you’ll get a 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 that gives you the ability to produce 240 hp. This all depends on whether or not it is important for you to have that extra boost of power. All trim levels of the 2017 Kia Sportage have refined handling and impressive performance power, you just need to decide which one you prefer.

There are some design elements that will differ depending on the trim you choose. For example, in the SX Turbo, you can get satin chrome door handle and side-sill trims. This isn’t available in the other trims. Likewise, the EX trim will allow you to have a front grille in gloss black and bright chrome. The LX will allow you to have a matte black and bright chrome. You can choose to add available upgrades on lower trim levels to get some of the details that the upper trim level will have, but you will have to choose the trim depending on what elements are vital to you.

A big perk to picking any trim of the 2017 Kia Sportage is the availability of the AWD system. None of the trim levels have AWD as a standard feature, but all give the availability of adding this feature. This AWD can help you get through the tougher weather conditions and terrain.
