Customer Service: 5.0 Buying Process: 5.0 Overall Facilities: 5.0

We purchased a 2017 KIA Sorrento this weekend from Ft. Bend Kia. This dealership is first class in ever way. The facility is second to none and the professional staff cant be beat.They worked with us to find the Sorrento that we wanted and the options that we were comfortable with. After selecting the right car they were attentive to make sure we knew how use the many options that are on the car. The trade value was fair and the entire experience was short and concise. This is the 2nd KIA we have purchased at Ft. Bend KIA in 4 years and when we are looking again in the future this is where we will shop.

I've owned this vehicle for two weeks now. I traded in a Hyundai Azera so I was looking for something that felt as comfortable and equally appointed. I wasn't disappointed with the Sportage SX Turbo. From the two tone leather treatment to the center stack this vehicle offers comfort and all of the gadgets that I like. Please don't come to the party expecting good gas mileage, I've owned Korean cars for over a decade now and they're all notorious for poor gas mileage. Accepting that from the start I can find little more to complain about. The turbo is fast and the pedal is responsive. It offers 3 driving modes and if you want to get pushed back in your seat, select sport mode. Handling is responsive and ride quality is good and quiet. I've not yet had the opportunity to see how the AWD handles itself in the snow but living in the NE, it won't be long. For me styling and comfort were two main concerns and this vehicle fits the bill. If you're looking for a vehicle that steps out from the lookalikes and blazes its own path, this vehicle is for you.

Kia Sportage – Joy to Drive but Low on Gas Mileage

I agree with a lot of the other reviewers on the overall happiness with the 2017 Kia Sportage. However, I get no where near the gas mileage that others have reported, even on the base model front wheel drive. Am I missing something? Driving in Eco mode, I am lucky to get 21mpg overall in city driving. I expected a little better in Eco Mode. If I dare to change to standard or sport mode, it takes half a tank to get back up to 20mpg in Eco Mode. I don't drive much, so its not a huge deal, just wondering what I might be doing wrong. Despite the gas mileage, I really love my 2017 Kia Sportage. I bought the front wheel drive LX back in August and it has just the right amount of torque and acceleration that I need for urban driving. Even in Eco mode, I noticed that it performed better than the Nissan Rogue, RAV4 and Honda CRV. However, what really stood out to me was the amount of features I got with the base model LX compared to Toyota, Nissan, Mazda and Honda. I also appreciated the long warranty, reliability ratings and the IIHS top safety report. I really like the overall design of the car (especially the tiger nose grill) and the spacious back seats sealed the deal for me. I used to drive a 2000 Volkswagen Beetle, so pretty much any new car was amazing to me. The first car I test drove was the Mazda CX3 and it was a lot of fun to drive but too compact. I then tried the Nissan Rogue which had a lot of nice features for the price but not much acceleration and it rolled too much. The Honda CRV was a total letdown and a completely boring car. The Toyota RAV4 felt like a very solid and well built car. The quality was very apparent but so was the high price. After testing the 2017 Kia Sportage, seeing all the features and finally the reasonable price, I was sold. Now, I'm not a fan of the gas mileage but I drive so little that it never mattered to me. At the end of the day, the Sportage is a lot of fun to drive and provides a comfortable ride with enough acceleration that I can get around the city without any problems.

Love my new ride!

We don't have snow here so I can not comment on that. I can not seem to adjust the vent to the right of the driver set to my liking for some reason....It just always seems to blow right on me no matter what I do! Not enough of a left to right adjustment available I would guess. Cant speak on maintenance costs as yet and that's a good thing but the mileage seems to be lower than expected. According to the car's internal stats and the amount of times I go to the gas station per month, I am getting less mileage than my 2007 Toyota Camry and that's NOT a good thing! I will evaluate that more closely over the next few months.

The turbo takes off like a rocket. Like zero to sixty in five seconds. Or maybe faster. Only downside is that there is no CD player.

So far so good

My wife just traded her 2014 Mustang for a base 2017 lx Sportage front wheel drive. So far haven't missed the Mustang at all. The Sportage rides extremely comfortable and has been getting 26 to 27 mpg in town. The A/C will run you out. The visibility is terrific with little to no blind spots. The 4 cylinder has ample enough power around town and on highway for a SUV. Negatives? Stereo sound is wimpy and do miss the hid headlights the Mustang had. Overall we are satisfied with the look, ride, and performance of the 2017 Sportage.

From Prius to Sportage love it

Wow... what a difference the 2017 Sportage EX is compared to the 2016 Sportage...BIG change....world of difference in comfort/road holding/steering/gadgets. Test drove the 2016 and 2017...knew right away...2017 Sportage EX was going to be my pick. Went with the premium package...didn't feel the technology package was worth the extra 2 grand. Only disappointing feature on the 2017 Sportage EX is the lack of cargo compartment space...no pockets in the back for items...everything slides around....no passenger side cargo space-saver under the seat and no coin change holder/personal/dodads draw or compartment to hide small items...just a big deep hole in the console that you probably will never find something in....once you place it in there....

I purchased my 2017 Kia Sportage with 34 miles on it on September 6th. 9 days later it has 347 miles on it, and I am having some problems. The past three mornings the car turns over a few times before starting. This morning after it started, it acted like it wanted to cut off. The car does a lot of transmission shifting when driving in slower traffic, and sometimes it doesn't accelerate unless you press the gas pedal pretty hard. When stopped at red lights, it's starting to have noise and vibration.

And The Winner Is

I’m going into week three with my 2017 Sportage EX with AWD and the EX Premium Package and just enjoy the heck out of it. I had crossed shopped the Kia with the Honda CRV and Mazda CX5. Other then gas mileage, the CRV is lacking in every category from ride quality, to handling, to quiet on the road, to the electronics and design language. In terms of design, Honda’s approach is to add 4 pieces of fake chrome and call it a mid cycle refresh. I happen to have had a 2016 CRV rental for 10 days and found the CVT yet another Honda attempt to convince us that it was worth sacrificing any pleasure at all in the driving experience for gas mileage and it just ain’t so. I’m a 6 time Honda owner including 3 CRVs and if the Kia delivers on the reliability I’m hoping for, those will probably be my last Hondas. The Mazda CX5 Touring with AWD was seemingly a less expensive and attractive alternative to the Kia in spite of it being 4-year-old technology, at least until you go just a bit under the skin. Check out the 61 complaints on the NHSTA website for the 2016 CX5, most of which focus on catastrophic failures of the transmission. In fact, look at blogs across the world including New Zealand and Australia, it's a worldwide problem. And borrowing right from the movie Fight Club, the Old GM Handbook and Ford Pinto Directives, Mazda has taken the position that its cheaper to put their CX5 customers in harms way then to retool and fix the problem. All a Mazda Representative could say about the transmission failures was: the problem usually doesn’t happen twice to the same person. If that wasn’t enough to discourage me, there are the strange interior ergonomics of the vehicle with the cup holder placement too far back and thus impossible to use for your GPS, the poor rearward visibility and the location of the armrest. The Sportage reminds me in a general way of the Audi Q5. It drives and feels planted like a German car. When you close the doors it sounds like a German car. Its nice to know that Peter Schreyer and the engineers he works with instilled more then a look into the vehicle. All the electronics and infotainment work well and are user friendly. The back up camera, rear traffic avoidance and blind spot monitoring are great. Sound quality on the radio us better then expected. Rearward visibility is excellent. At least on paper, the Magna AWD system with locking differential is probably the most sophisticated and capable on the market other then the Quattro and Subaru systems. So all in and all, I’m very pleased with the vehicle and enjoy driving it.

My new Kia is better than the last

The 2017 Kia EX Sportage AWD is the sportiest SUV around. Really like the way it looks. I've owned the car less than 2 weeks so I'm still learning it, but so far it's great! I owned the Sorento previously, never liked it and never thought I'd get another Kia, but after researching and testing multiple vehicles I liked this best and the price was right.

Better mileage than EPA DATA

Took delivery of my 2017 Sportage SX just before the Labor Day weekend and had the opportunity to drive it on 2 trips. The first was a 300 mile round trip, 90% rural highway, speed range between 50 and 65 mph. Result: 28 mpg. The 2nd trip was shorter, approximately 100 miles, 90% highway 60-75 mph. Result: 26 mpg. Both trips had AC on and was in "Eco" mode. The car and driving experience? Wonderful!

Excellent inside and out!

The first time I climbed in this car it reminded me of my early 2000's Audi A6 because of the layout of the dash, the shape and comfort of the seats, and the premium feel of the leather seats and steering wheel. However, when I fired it up and drove it around the block, it felt much more planted than said Audi. I have nothing but great things to say about this car! Peter Schreyer did an incredible job designing the interior of the car to make it feel like a much more expensive European SUV, and the exterior resembles the latest offerings in the category from Porsche and Audi, from the glossy black plastic fascia and foglight surroundings, to the excellent LED surrounded projectors and sexy body contours. The climate control is fantastic, and the screen is great. The front and rear seats are great, and the rears even recline for extra comfort. There are a million airbags, and nothing rattles at all. Acceleration is what is to be expected from a heavy 4-cylinder SUV, but the 6 speed auto keeps it in the rev range that maximizes torque and passing power when needed. My wife is 7 months pregnant, and I feel very comfortable knowing she's in this car when she has to go out. Fuel economy is what was to be expected, though it is probably the cars worst aspect. I average about 22MPG combined, but the car only has 2,100 miles on it, so it'll work in a bit and probably increase, but it is what was advertised so I can't complain.

Better than advertised

I was convinced I was going to replace my 2012 Sportage EX with a sedan. I drove the 2017 SX on a lot just because they shared the dealership with the car I was dead set on buying. The 2017 is substantially more smooth and comfortable than my 2012, and I loved the 2012. I hated the idea having to get a sun roof because I am tall but have short legs so all my height is waist up. But I ended up liking it. I hated the idea of 19" wheels and maybe still think it would be smoother with 18s or 17s and more tire but the ride was MUCH better than my 2012 and my 2012 had just gotten new shocks so that ain't it. The features in this vehicle are second to none for the price paid. The fuel economy in my 2017 SX is better than my 2012 EX by at least 1 MPG if not more and it is supposed to be less. The only thing I really hate about the car is the navigation system. It is absolutely useless. I even have the latest map and it has NO idea where I am going and can almost never find a business unless I know the exact address, so out comes the phone. With google maps running next to it on my phone the car always wants to go a longer way. Also, most of the controls cannot be used while driving. This is ridiculous. Did no one surmise that a passenger could program the navi system? It just means I use my phone instead. This vehicle needed an AC reprogramming as the factory program caused the entire system to freeze up. Once that was done it has had no further problems. I never thought I would use ventilated seats but in hot summer driving it is very nice to have. The reclining rear seats are great for kids to sleep but still stay belted, too. The one thing I miss from my 2012? The cooled glove box in the front for my bottled water! The shifting in eco mode is annoying but it gets great mileage and the normal and sport modes are better for spirited driving.

I am 61 and finally decided to buy my 1st new car. Looked on line and on the road. Decided it was between Land Rover and Kia Sportage. The Kia Sportage had better visibility and that Panoramic Sunroof!!! I went on the Kia Motorsports web page and built my own. There weren't any near me that I wanted. It had to be white, with that Panoramic Sunroof. I found 2 at Peoria Kia in Arizona. I called and had one put on hold. I booked a flight, they picked me up at the airport in my new Sportage. Wow Kia has amazing style, features and good power for a 4 cylinder. I formerly had a Honda Ex V6 Accord.

Very much worth buying!

I have a Sportage 2017 SX AWD and I love it so much!. Fantastic design, comfort, and technology. The safety features definitely help to prevent road accidents. The fuel economy is much higher than what is announced because my average on the highway is 30 mpg for driving an hour. My friends were amazed when they saw it!

We have owned a CRV/RAV/Rogue and now a Sportage. All I can tell you is that these three companies better change fast or else this sportage will bury them. Last fall we purchased a used 2014 sportage lx for my daughter, i love the handling and the ease of maintenance. The new 2017 is a knockout power punch for this company, yes we have the means to afford a 40k car but why ? My daughters power window broke on her 2014 with 48K on it and they fixed it for free, just can't beat the warranty . A few of our friends laughed at us, ( lexus, audi ) until they sat in it then took it for a drive, laugh no more. This is a cool vehicle.

Worst New Car ever owned!

Do not buy a Kia, I have had problems since I drove car off show room floor. Check engine light on day 3. 3 different Kia dueler ships before fixing camshaft. Came off production line damaged. Day 3 air conditioner freezes when on longer than 4 hours. Still having problem. Before first oil change. Gas flap will not open at gas stations. So can't always fill with gas. It opens when it wants to. Horrible customer support from Kia. Kia service dept isn't sure how to fix things cause car is to new.

I never asked because to me that's common sense that a tire should be there it has the holder but no tire.

I just purchased my 2017Sportage EX in May 2016. I traded in my 2005 Nissan Murano AWD for it. I wanted something that was spacious enough for my daughter and her friends yet still stylish and AWD like my previous Murano. I looked at several models and based on research and my test drive, decided on the Sportage. I have NOT one regret yet! It is a 4 cylinder model so it doesn't have as much punch as my Murano but thats okay.. i'm not in a hurry.. My gas mileage (although low compared to other crossovers) is still better than my Murano. I love the design of the outside of the Sportage and the inside is just as nice. My only small complaint is regarding the USB. It doesn't seem to charge phones as rapidly as I would like and I don't think it is the actual cord. It worked better in the Murano, but this isn't a huge issue for me as long as i can get some charge.

Let me start by saying my wife and I have owned 2 kias and we have loved them. You cant beat the warranty and I think the build quality is good. There is only 2 dealers near where we live so we went to the closest one first to take the 2017 out for a test drive. When we first seen the car we loved the way it looked and the inside was even better (we looked at a Hyundai before we went to the kia dealer and they are almost the same) the problem I had was when I turned the key and heard the noise the engine made. It was HORRIBLE, I have a strong mechanical background and the tapping noise the car makes inside and out is unacceptable to me. What it is is the high pressure injection system (fuel pump and injectors) . Now if you know nothing about machinery you may not notice the noise this makes and if so buy the car it is a good car I am just giving my opinion about the fuel system. Now the dealer will try to tell you that this noise will stop after the car has warmed up but this is just not true, They may also say that this is new technology but this is also false. All I am asking is you research direct inject systems and educate yourself on the positives (and there are a bunch) and on the negatives. Sorry to be such a downer on this I love the car but they could have relocated the fuel pump and insulated the firewall better to quiet the tapping noise..

No longer an Acura owner!

Love this SUV. Test drove one a few months ago and liked it. Drove other SUV's in the mean time- RDX, CX5, RAV4 Hybrid etc. and none of them really appealed to me. Test drove the EX with premium and tech packages- so all the goodies, and I loved it. White with grey interior looks awesome and the infotainment system is very nice. Fuel economy is lousy so lets hope the fuel prices don't go sky high for a while.

2017 Kia Sportage SX AWD is amazing, after doing my homework, new Sportage offers best new car for price. Plenty of power when needed and gas mileage which was my main concern has not been much of an issue. One 600 mile drive on mostly cruise I got 27 MPG. Very luxurious interior with good placement of controls. Love the ventilated seats, heated steering. Everything I need with one exception, adaptive cruise control. Other than that all the safety features are included. We own a Kia Optima as well which we have loved but had roof noise which took 2 trips to the service dept. to repair. Sportage is much quieter and the moon roof is very large, very nice. Easy to get in and out of, plenty of back storage with seats forward or about the same size as my last Subaru Outback.

My new SX turbo rocks!

This has everything I was looking for (SUV, size, power, styling, tech, etc.). I like German makes, but for for this level of equipment you'll be spending north of $45,000. I like that this trim includes everything, no nickel and diming for options. Mine is Pacific Blue with the beige interior. I think the cool grey interior would be nice as well. Kia reliability is up there with the best in the latest surveys. Looking forward to a long ownership.

We have a 2011 Sportage and still love it. This represents the first radical change since that model came out. It meets my entire checklist of must have items except for adaptive radar cruise, which is only available in larger models. We were willing to forgo that option in favor of the size of the Sportage which is just right for us. We couldn't be happier. Kia has worked on every feature to make it smoother, softer and more advanced while still intuitive.

What a sexy little beast!

This is actually my 5th Kia. I have owned a 2003 Kia Spectra, 2013 Kia Optima, 2016 Kia Optima, 2016 Kia Sorento, and not this beautiful 2017 Kia Sportage. I got the Sportage to replace the Sorento. I owned the Sorento for only 2 months before things started to break. It only had 1000 miles on it before the sun roof broke, and the trim pieces around the door started falling off. I never could get the UVO system to work properly. When I went to the dealership the Sportage was what I wanted, but they didn't have it in the trim level that I wanted and when they did get one in I wasn't impressed. When I took my Sorento in for repairs that's when I saw the 2017 Sportage and decided that this was a huge upgrade from the 2016. So I went all in. So far I'm really impressed with this car. The look is sexy and sporty, and fun. The interior feels expensive (in most places), the tech package and all of the upgrades are awesome. This car has it all. It drives and handles great, and I love that the turbo engine give me all of the power I need to pass easily, and move in and through traffic without worrying about having the get up to make it into tight spaces. I can see myself driving this car for 10+ years. Pros: Excellent technology package, TONS of features like autonomous breaking, front collision warning, ventilated and heated seats, beautiful styling and I LOVE the dark brown leather seats. Lots of power and speed when it's needed, comfortable ride, and the car feels spacious. Placement of all of the controls is perfect, everything is easy to find and easy to use. Android Auto is AWESOME!!! Cons: Some of the finishes feel a little cheap. I would have been willing to pay a little more for visors that don't feel like they are made of cheap plastic, The lack of the memory seat function, and the lack of the easy entry seat also gives the car a little bit of a cheap feeling. These things are very noticeable because the rest of the finishes are better quality. It would be nice if this car had the same luxury feel that the Sorento has. UVO system is still troublesome. I can only get the eServices portion to sync to my phone sporadically, and it's a bummer that you need to have the phone plugged in to use it. Same with Android Auto there seem to be a few glitches like after taking a call the Google Play Music won't restart. I believe some of these things will be fixed throughout the year as updates are released. Still it would be nice to be able to use these functions via Bluetooth instead of needing to plug the phone in. More road noise than the Sorento, and the Optima. Bottom line this is a GREAT car, and I look forward to many years of enjoyment from it.

Fun car with lots to offer

I've owned my Sportage for about a month now and I am in love. I had a 2007 Mazda3 for 9 years, so this car to me is luxurious and an upgrade in every way. Having the extra packages makes me feel like I have the SX for the EX price (minus the turbo too, obviously). It's a really fun car, looks different, I feel like I don't need to use a muscle. It's just everything I ever wanted!

My Sportage is SeXy!

I have had my 2017 Sportage SX (FWD) for 4 weeks, and 1500 miles. I love it. I had a 2015 Honda CR-V[ibrate]. The Sportage feels like such an upgrade with all of the luxury and technology features, the turbo engine, the quiet interior, the better sound system, the improved handling. Honda is supposed to be the reliability king - I had problems and dealers unwilling to figure out the causes. As a loyal Honda customer (I've had 5), I was nervous about moving to Kia. So far, so good. I'm really happy that I made the move. Kia engineers seem to be really trying to put out a quality vehicle, and so far with the Sportage, they have. Comfortable seats, engaging driving dymamic. Honestly, it feels a little like a grown-up version of my 2010 VW GTI. Friends have been giving me sh!t about moving to a Kia...until they ride in it, and drive it. They're surprised. My only complaints thus far are the fuel efficiency (or lack thereof) and the numb steering.

I like it!

Oh my Goodness! I love this Car! I got the Bronze EX with black leather interior that comes standard with Android auto play . The comfort goes on and beyond my expectations and it is easy to get in and out without having to slouch. It is a smooth ride and has a killer sound system. For my first SUV, switching from a sedan, it was the best decision I have ever made.

Almost purchased the LX but ran into the EX on the show room floor and thought it was worth the extra money. Push start, Beautiful touch screen, power seats, fog lights, and leather did it for us. Got 30 mpg on the way home for a 2 hour drive. Look forward to many years with this sexy beast

I absolutely love this car from the mean exterior to the plush interior, you get in and cannot believe its a Kia! The drive is smooth- could use a bit more power but not complaining. I bought from the Kia Depot in santa ana , ca and they were accommodating and strait up..Good

Catch a Sport!

I have only owned this vehicle a coulple of days. Fit Finish, performance, this Vehicle is a must see on your list of cross over SuV's. Even includes a Backup camera on the LX Models! Long Warranty. Test Drive it! You will be pleasantly Surprised! Just added another Review on 10/5/16---Have owned this Sportage now for 5 months and I still stand behind my review above. DRIVE IT!

I previously had a Kia Sportage 2013, this new model is so much more advanced. I went in to purchase the 2016 and seen this one on the show room floor and had to have it. It has so much more than I would have hoped for and the price was still under 30 thousand.

As named, a Sporty SUV

I already have a Sorento so as a commuter vehicle for myself, I wasn't looking for lots of family room. Also, I'm not young anymore, but not quite dead yet, so the radical sporty lines on the '17 Sportage were very appealing to me. I just got the EX model, and although I would not challenge any high end power cars out threre, it does zip nicely through traffic and allows for some competitive driving. The suspension is very stiff, lending to excellent road handling. I drive in Europe several times a year and often rent the BMW X3. I've got to say, the Sportage handles every bit as well. The interior is great looking and ergonomic. I can't speak for reliability as I have not had the vehicle long enough, but you can't beat the long term warranty. For those in my neck of the woods, I have to stick a plug in for Mike at KIA Smithtown NY. He made the purchasing process a pleasure.
