Exterior Changes – 2018 Kia Sportage

2018 is the year of the EX trim. Start with the fact that you have 10 color options to choose from. Compare that to the 2017 model year where there were only seven color options available. Those three extra colors may be the difference between getting a car that you enjoy driving and getting a vehicle you love. The EX trim also has the option of getting a front grille with gloss black and satin chrome highlights. This was previously not available on the previous model year. To complete the look, you can also get the side-sill trim with satin chrome on the EX model this year. Enjoy the ability to haul more gear with the roof rails that are available on both model years. You’ll also get heated outside mirrors on the EX and SX Turbo trim levels. If you wanted the EX trim last year, but you decided to pass because it didn’t offer LED Front Fog Lights and LED Rear Combination Lamps, you can come back in and pick up the newest Kia Sportage because those features are included. Come down and see how you can save at Battleground KIA. Our dealership is proudly serving Greensboro High Point Winston Salem North Carolina buyers with some exceptional deals right now.

Interior Changes – 2018 Kia Sportage in North Carolina

The 2018 Kia Sportage has some new options on the EX trim that wasn’t available on the 2017 Kia Sportage. For starters, you can get the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the EX trim this year. On the base level trim, you’ll get Tricot cloth seats with YES Essentials Fabric treatment. The previous model year only offered woven cloth seats and the Tricot option was a premium add-on. It’s the small changes like these that make the newer model year a better overall value. When you come down and see us, we will walk you through all of the differences so that you can find the vehicle option that works for you. Give us a call so that you can take a test drive to see the best choice for your individual needs.

Mechanical Changes – Sportage specs in North Carolina

No mechanical changes of significance were made with the release of the 2018 model year. While the 2017 model year offers the same power and capability, the engineers have improved the overall handling and the electronics that go into the creation of this vehicle. The Kia Sportage offers a fantastic value and reliable performance, so you won’t be missing anything substantial if you do go with the early model year. However, we think that the newest release still offers the better value when you consider the upgraded interior and safety features. Come down and save at Battleground KIA serving Greensboro High Point Winston Salem North Carolina shoppers.

Safety Changes – 2018 Kia Sportage

The 2018 Kia Sportage has more safety features than the previous model year. You’ll get blind spot detection as standard equipment on the EX and the EX Turbo trims. The same is true for Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and other smart security and safety features. The 2017 Kia Sportage trims often didn’t have these options available, or they were upgrades that would end up increasing the overall cost of the vehicle. While both the model years are incredibly safe vehicles, you’ll find that the newer model year offers more features and better options than the previous year. When you come down and talk to our professionals, we will walk you through your options to help you get a great deal.
