Kia will offer the 2017 Sportage in three trim levels, including LX, EX and SX Turbo, in front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Kia has tweaked the two carryover engines to improve fuel economy. Buyers can choose the 2.0L turbo inline-four on the SX Turbo that makes 241 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The LX and EX offer a 2.4L naturally aspirated engine that produces 181 hp and 175 lb.-ft. of torque.
