Cars.com names 2017 Kia Sportage “Best New Compact SUV”

It’s an exciting time for the Kia Sportage as it enters into its fourth generation. This all-new, completely redesigned model has been awarded the “Best New Compact SUV” title from Cars.com at the North American International Auto Show, and it’s in the running for the “Best of 2017” as well. With models available across the country, drivers don’t want to miss out on this trustworthy and affordable new SUV.

What makes the 2017 Kia Sportage the “Best New Compact SUV”?

“With all of the improvements made for the 2017 model year, it’s hard to ignore the Sportage” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA. “Instead of bland utility, the Sportage combines distinctly European and sporty styling with an impressive level of craftsmanship and surprising features, all for an excellent value. To be recognized by the experts at Cars.com as ‘Best Compact SUV’ and as a ‘Best Of’ nominee represents how far the Kia brand has come in its continued commitment to world-class quality and top-notch design.”

In order to be chosen for these awards, the Kia Sportage had to prove its quality, innovation and value. As for the “Best of” nominee, the vehicle has to be either all-new or fully redesigned, which is why the Sportage qualifies for this award as well.

The completely redesigned 2017 Kia Sportage is stronger and more spacious than it’s ever been before. There are tons of new safety and technology features to look forward to including optional front crash prevention.
