Kia is unleashing the third generation of the Sportage for the 2017 model year with updated styling outside, including a redefined grille, new fog lamps, new headlights, new taillights and an overall sleek appearance. Inside, the passenger cabin is more driver-oriented, and the dash takes on the same look of width as the exterior. A new instrument cluster boasts a small LCD screen in the middle with the option for different color schemes and the infotainment system is available with a seven- or eight-inch display screen. We have yet to receive engine specifications for the U.S. market, but over in Europe, customers have the option between two gasoline engines and three diesels with output ranging anywhere between 113 horsepower and 182 horsepower.

As a competitor to models like the Nissan Rogue and the Mazda CX-5, the Sportage looks to push the envelope for quality and economy without being too expensive in such a competitive segment. With that said, the Sportage is available in three trim levels with prices ranging from $22,990 for the entry-level LX trim, all the way up to $34,000 for the range-topping Sportage SX. With a long list of optional packages and add-ons, the Sportage could end up being fairly cheap or somewhat expensive if you go for a fully loaded crossover.

The sportage is now and its third generation and only time will tell how well it performs during its lifecycle. But, you can make your own decision about the Sportage for yourself by checking out our detailed review below.

Updated 02/22/2016: Kia announced prices for the all new 2017 Sportgae which will go on sale later this spring. Prices will range from $22,990 to $34,000 depending on the trim version.
