Reviews for 2017 Kia Sportage

Overall Rating

4.6 out of 5 (28 reviews)

This car is amazing

This car is amazing. It LOOKS amazing, I get compliments all the time. I purchased it with my animals in mind but get to enjoy "luxury" during the week with my sunroof, leather seats that heat, they are easy to clean, it's sporty and economical, I LOVE the adjustable engine too. So many positives and gets great mileage!


  • Ride and Handling: It's smooth and little to no wind noise even though it's an SUV
  • Cargo Space: Excellent space for groceries, moving a friend and my 3 dogs
  • Power: Even on "eco" it has a lot of power.

Traded One Kia For Another

The Kia line is reliability made solid. I owned my previous Kia Sportage from 2005 to 2019. In that time, I ran up over 216,000 miles on it. It got me and my family through fair weather and foul with never a complaint.


  • Reliability: Put gas in it and go!
  • Dashboard: Great layout. Easy to see.
  • Value: Despite taking some hard knocks, the Sportage keeps on rolling.


  • Visibility: Pillars and head rests make for anxious merges on the highway.
  • Cabin Noise: At highway speeds, it can get a bit noisy inside.

Just one problem with windshield

Wish I had a standard Shift. With an injury My wife suffered we need the automatic. This one car has a defect in the windshield. Likely manufactured with the defect. We did not notice it when purchasing the car. There are bubbles in the glass.


  • Value: Seems like a good price for a used car with low milage
  • Cargo Space: More space then my last car
  • Interior Space: More room than my last car


  • Ride and Handling: Just a car
  • Power: Need a standard shift. Poop power
  • Visibility: Car has a defect in windshield. It will likely have to be replaced. Bet this is way the car was for sale.
