2017 Kia Sportage | Baierl Automotive | Wexford, PA

The 2017 Kia Sportage lives up to its sporty reputation. This is the 4th generation for this model which is noted for being Kia's leading vehicle. With great appearance, lots of safety and comfort and even more technology, Kia leads the pack of crossover SUVs. With your Sportage you get high quality and style in addition to a superb warranty all packaged in a compact vehicle you will love. Typical warranties run for 3 years or 36,000 miles whichever comes first. But take a good look at the Kia Sportage Warranty. In these days of rapid change, few people even think of owning a vehicle for 10 years and a 5 year roadside assistance warranty is exceptional.

Warranty Information

Basic

5 years or 60,000 miles

Powertrain

5 years or 60,000 miles

Corrosion/Rust Thru

5 years or 100,000 miles

Roadside Assistance Program

5 years or 60,000 miles

Non-Transferable Powertrain

10 years or 100,000 miles

COST

Your 2017 Kia Sportage is priced competitively in the range of $23,646 to $24,527. The warranty alone is worth a lot more than that. So, with this great value and appearance, you can readily compare it with other SUVs and come out pleased. All of the extra amenities like a heated steering wheel, a power tailgate and a Harmon/Kardon audio system are just extras, not essentials. Even the turbocharged engine can make this Kia Sportage feel like a luxury SUV. Did you know the 2017 Kia Sportage originated and is assembled in Korea? 

Consumers rate the 2017 Kia Sportage at 9.7 out of 10 points. That is hard to beat in any class of vehicles. This 4 door Small Sport Utility Vehicle comfortably seats 5 people. You may wish for more fuel economy, since it averages 23 miles per gallon of gasoline.

ENGINE

The standard 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine yields 181 horsepower very efficiently. It works well with the 6 speed automatic transmission including overdrive and Sportmatic. There is a 240 horsepower Sportage Turbo engine but you probably don't need it. The standard engine is highly recommended for this All Wheel Drive SUV.

SAFETY

Expect your 2017 Kia Sportage to have all of the updated safety features available. Automatic emergency braking is a must-have in today's technological world. Child door locks are standard. Airbags for driver and passengers are standard plus the front seat has side and head curtains.

You know that the most important safety feature in every vehicle is a driver who has taken good care of the vehicle and who is alert and aware of all of the conditions and surroundings during transit.

Every vehicle, even the 2017 Kia Sportage, needs fuel and under the hood attention on a regular basis. Tires with the proper pressure will improve fuel economy. Since the Sportage is not the most fuel-efficient SUV, every step you take to maximize fuel economy is highly valued.

Remember to check the oil and know when your Owner's Manual recommends getting it changed. Understand what the other essential fluids are and how to care for them, like transmission fluid, brake fluid, etc. Even the windshield wipers' condition is very important.

Rely on Baierl 360 Total Service if you need an oil change, state inspection, a tune-up, brake repair, or any other regular maintenance. You will find Baierl Automotive in Wexford, PA.

CARE
