A full-chrome window surround, prominent wheel arches, and a coupe-like roof are just a few of the features that make this crossover a standout.

Idling beneath the hood of this compact crossover awaits the availability of two engines. Standard in the LX and EX trims is the 2.4L 16-valve I4 powerhouse, which renders 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, as well as an impressive 23/30/26 MPG city/hwy/combined1. Taking it to the next level is the 2.0L I4 Turbocharged engine found in the SX turbo trim, which puts 240 horsepower and 237 lb.-ft. of torque at the disposal of your right foot. Not to mention, it also boasts a 21/26/23 MPG city/hwy/combined1 fuel rating. Providing you with the utmost traction and handling when you need it most is the available Dynamax full-time AWD system. By utilizing electronic sensors to monitor road conditions, it distributes power to the appropriate wheels to enhance stability, so taking on a snow-coated I-39 is an easy feat.


The technology found in the 2017 Kia Sportage for sale in Rockford, IL, as at an all-time high. From entertainment, to convenience, the Sportage caters to all of your wants and needs. The standard Remote Keyless Entry lets you open and lock the Sportage by pressing a button on the key fob, while the available push-button start awakens and cuts the engine in one swift motion.

Standard seating for five and a 30.7 cubic ft. of cargo capacity6 in the back make those summer days on Rock River a little more fun with everyone and everything you need in tow. When you’re out for a walk in Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve, feel free to leave your valuables behind in the under-rear-cargo-floor storage compartment, which will keep them safe and out of sight. For some passenger and cargo versatility at the same time, the rear seat boasts a 60/40 split-folding feature, which helps accommodate all of your varying needs.
