We've known it for a while, but now we have the hardware to prove it. The 2017 Kia Sportage earned the 2017 AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award. From space to power, this award should come as no surprise to Sunrise and Fort Lauderdale drivers.

Annually, AutoPacific surveys new vehicle owners for a variety of awards. For the Ideal Vehicle Award specifically, the survey focuses on 15 vehicle aspects, and asks owners which aspects they'd like to change about their vehicle. The vehicle with the fewest suggested changes is the winner of the Ideal Vehicle Award. And after more than 54,000 responses - you guessed it - the winner is the Kia Sportage.

With up to 240 horsepower from the available 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the Sportage rules every road in Davie, Plantation, and Hollywood. When you partner its powerful engine with Dynamax all-wheel drive, there's plenty of capability to go around.

Inside, you'll find 60/40 flat-folding rear seats with a dual-level cargo floor that allows for a variety of cargo configurations. And while you carry passengers and cargo alike, you'll get to choose your favorite music and get turn-by-turn directions on an available eight-inch color display.
