  • Made for First impressions

    Bold design

    From grille to tail, the all-new 2017 Sportage is a true work of art. With available 19-inch machine-finished alloys and eye-catching LED light bar taillights, the features and finishes on Sportage will make even the fiercest competitor do a double take.

  • Made for Seeing beyond

    Dynamic headlights

    The all-new Sportage uses available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon headlights that are strategically placed away from the grille to create a bold and aggressive look, with directionally adaptive headlights that will help illuminate around every corner.

  • Made for Looking good

    Sideview mirrors

    The heated side view mirrors not only improve visibility in frosty climates, they also conveniently tuck away when parked on EX and SX models. Plus, the available integrated turn signal repeaters make your every move well-known.

  • Made for Warmer welcomes

    Welcome lighting system

    Not only does the available Smart key make push-button starts possible, the welcome lighting system automatically senses your key as you approach, unfolds the mirrors and illuminates the door handle pockets and interior lights to provide a welcome reception.

  • Made for drivers

    D-cut steering wheel

    The cabin of the all-new Sportage is completely driver focused. With an available D-cut steering wheel, the cockpit-like feel, and satin chrome accents provide a sportier driving experience.

  • Made for controlled comfort


    The Sportage comes with standard, heated front seats, available heated rear seats and heated steering wheel. Or cool off at the push of a button thanks to available dual-zone climate control and air-cooled front seats.

  • Made for the mobile generation

    Wireless charging

    The all-new Sportage comes with an available inductive wireless charging pad that effortlessly charges your phone while you’re on the go, so you’ll never be left searching for a cable again4.

  • Made for soaking it all in

    Panoramic sunroof

    Nothing says road trip like a rush of fresh air. The available panoramic sunroof with integrated power sunshade is now longer and wider to let you take advantage of everything the outside world has to offer.

  • Made for staying connected

    Multimedia interface

    The remarkably smart available 8-inch multimedia touchscreen interface with integrated voice-activated navigation, and standard Bluetooth® hands-free cell phone connectivity means you’re always connected to the world around you1,3.

  • Made for a richer experience

    Premium audio

    Music just sounds better thanks to the available Harman/Kardon® premium audio system, while true audiophiles will appreciate the optimal acoustics produced by its CLARI-FI digital music restoration technology5.

  • Made for hands-free living

    Android Auto®

    Available Android Auto® lets you listen to your favourite music with Google Play Music, navigate through traffic in Google Maps and check messages with your voice. Plus, Android Auto® is expandable with customized apps available in the Google Play Store4.


Made for uncompromising performance

A 2.4-litre direct-injected engine producing 181 horsepower comes standard, but if you’re looking for even more power, an available 2.0-litre turbocharged engine produces an impressive 237 horses and 260 lb-ft. of torque.

Made for personalizing your drive

Every Sportage comes standard with Drive Mode Select function which adjusts power delivery, transmission shift points and steering feedback to suit road, weather conditions and your driving style. Normal mode is for regular driving, Eco emphasizes fuel efficiency and comfort, while Sport delivers more aggressive, performance-oriented responsiveness.

Made for all-around protection

With six standard air bags and a chassis that’s manufactured with advanced high strength steel, the Sportage is engineered to help direct crash energy away from the cabin. So you can rest assured that the Sportage is built with safety in mind.

Made for more stability

The 2017 Sportage comes with many standard safety features, like Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control, to help keep you safe behind the wheel2.
