What do we here at Kia AutoSport Pensacola appreciate about the all-new 2017 Sportage, our esteemed South Korean automaker's redesigned compact crossover?

Well, to be honest ... just about everything. It seems to us that Kia pulled out all the stops in conceiving this one.

And we believe you'll understand what we mean after watching the video below. Pair up with Autotrader personality, as he tries the Sportage on for size:

On the LX and EX models, the Sportage receives a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine as standard. Joining with a six-speed automatic gearbox, the base four-banger generates 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.

The top-of-the-line SX Turbo trim, meanwhile, gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. It, too, couples with the six-speed automatic transmission, but instead makes a massive 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

For more information about this striking SUV, or to take the wheel of one, we invite you to swing by our Pensacola FL showroom. Our seasoned staff is available to address your every question regarding the Sportage, or any other Kia model throughout the current catalog.
