2018 Kia Sportage Near Whitefish Bay, WI

A Look at Why the 2018 Kia Sportage Makes for a Great Whitefish Bay Family Vehicle

Situated not far north of Milwaukee with a decidedly more rural-esque nature, Whitefish Bay remains a popular neighborhood for families and individuals looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. This coastal community, in fact, as many endearing qualities that make it an ideal place to race a family as not only does it boast one of the region's highest-performing educational system, but it also is renown for its very pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods and beautiful parks neighboring Lake Michigan. But while Whitefish Bay may be renown for its walkability and bikability, growing families are still often in want of a reliable family vehicle. One model that might particularly interest Whitefish Bay vehicle buyers is the 2018 Kia Sportage.

Naturally, when it comes to growing family vehicles, most people think first of minivans and large three-row SUVs. Yet, sometimes such large vehicles are just as unwanted as small compact coupes and instead, what's needed is a nice middle balancing of size with comfort and easy drivability. As a dynamic crossover SUV, the 2018 Kia Sportage offers that perfect balance and the following is a quick look at why this vehicle is certainly worthy of a consideration by Whitefish Bay families looking for their next vehicle:

Attributes that Make the 2018 Kia Sportage A Great Pick for Great Whitefish Bay Families

Strong engine performance. The 2018 Kia Sportage base and medium trim come equipped with a spirited 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine delivers an ample 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque that really gives this vehicle a spirited and prompt performance so that Whitefish Bay families will never fell as though they are slogging up a hill even when they have the vehicle fully loaded down.

In fact, this engine paired with a strong body and suspension design enable the model to tow upwards of 1,650 pounds without trailer breaks and 2,000 pounds with them equipped. Furthermore, this engine comes with the available all-wheel drive so that families can feel even more confident in safely traversing over ugly road conditions as well as good ones.

Spacious and comfortable interior. The Kia Sportage is considered a crossover SUV with two rows of seating capable of seating up to five occupants. As with other crossovers its size, the 2018 Kia Sportage prioritizes occupant comfort with an incredible amount of head and legroom to go around. This cavernous cabin extends to the rear area in which an astounding 30.7 cubic feet of space can be found behind the rear seats. Should you need more, the rear seats fold completely flat and a secret cargo space can be accessed in the floor to extend the full cargo hauling possibilities to over 60 cubic feet.

In addition to being spacious, the interior of the 2018 Kia Sportage is designed with comfort in mind. The seats are covered with a premium, soft upholstery over good padding and the design of the dash and center console can best be described as handsome and well-formed. Available interior upgrades include heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery, and power adjustable front seats.
