At the Frankfurt Motor Show it’s been announced that by the end of 2016 we should expect to see the new 2017 Kia Sportage Soul more powerful than ever.
Redesign of interior and exterior
The most noticeable thing everybody will notice about the exterior of the 2017 Kia Sportage Soul is the signature Kia Tiger Nose grille which has been added to the front end of the vehicle. Same thing has already been done with the 2016 Kia Optima and the 2016 Kia Sorento. Also, the second thing you won’t miss if you are looking for the exterior changes on the new Kia Sportage Soul are the new headlights which have been raised above the grille. Also we will see and the new front foglights as well. Inside the vehicle we will also see some interesting changes. The new Kia Sportage Soul’s interior will be improved with the highest quality materials and the latest technology features so we should expect much of the drive assist technology. Some of these new features will be a new center console, blind spot detection, lane keep assist, wireless phone charging, redesigned steering wheel, autonomous emergency braking and much more. Seats will be improved with new soft materials so the new Kia Sportage is coming more comfortable than before.
2017 Kia Sportage Soul powertrain
Under the hood of the new 2017 Kia Sportage Soul we will probably see either a 1.2-liter or a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder GDI power unit. This engine is capable to deliver up to 177 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The new model will come with a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission or with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With this new powertrain the vehicle will offer lower fuel consumption than before. Also, it will ensure a sporty driving in manual and smooth driving in automatic mode.
Release date and price
The all-new 2017 Kia Sportage Soul as we have already said should be released by the end of 2016 and its price should start from $23,000.
