2017 Kia Sportage vs 2017 Toyota RAV4 in Tallahassee, FL

sportagesportage1


To find your dream vehicle, it usually requires hours and hours of research comparing the top models on your wish list. However, here at Kia of Tallahassee, we have put together a 2017 Kia Sportage vs 2017 Toyota RAV4 in Tallahassee, FL, comparison, so you can see for yourself how these attractive midsize crossovers measure up against each other. Without a doubt, the Sportage takes the lead in this competition with its enduring ride and modernly-appointed cabin. See the Kia Sportage here at your local Kia dealer for yourself!

Under the hood of each midsize crossover, you’ll find similar powertrains that provide a satisfying performance. Taking it to the next level is the Sportages’ 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, which effortlessly churns out a rewarding 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. The Toyota RAV4’s 2.5L 4-cylinder powerhouse can’t keep up, despite its larger size, as it gives a disappointed 176 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. While the RAV4 offers only one engine option, you’ll find two available on the Sportage. Boasting a thrilling 240 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the Kia Sportage’s 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged powerhouse really sets the standard.

As we continue in this comparison between the 2017 Kia Sportage and 2017 Toyota RAV4 in Tallahassee, FL, you’ll find that the Sportage’s cabin is much more spacious for your passengers. With its 38.2 inches of rear legroom, even your tallest back-seaters can stretch out and relax while you’re on your way to Wakulla Beach. The Toyota RAV4 only provides your passengers with 37.2 inches of rear legroom, so they may feel more cramped. Whether you’re hauling for work or play, you can depend on the Kia Sportage’s astonishing 2,000-lb. towing capacity1.You’ll most likely have to leave some of your equipment behind when you drive 2017 RAV4, as it features a 1,750-lb. maximum towing threshold2.

Giving you access to unique features is the Kia Sportage, so each and every drive is worth your while. The UVO eServices3 enables navigation4, roadside assistance, hands-free calling, and more all in one convenient multimedia system, which you won’t find in the Toyota RAV4. Also, dual-zone automatic temperature control comes standard in the Sportage, so you and your front passengers can set individual climate settings. In the Toyota RAV4, you’ll have to opt for the next trim level up if you want this comfort.

With its stand-out performance and exceptional design, the Sportage takes the number one slot in the comparison between the 2017 Kia Sportage vs 2017 Toyota RAV4 in Tallahassee, FL. See Kia of Tallahassee today at our convenient location, 2755 W. Tennessee St. in Tallahassee, FL, for a test drive as soon as today.

Small location with small offerings. The Service Department is fantastic! You are immediately greeted. They keep you informed and they provide fast warranty and recall service. VERY user friendly and affordable. I've lived in Las Vegas and Orlando prior to moving here. All KIA Service Departments have been great. I have to admit this location was superior to the others.

I arrived at 5pm to just see if I would be able to get something new. I left in the late hours of the night with a new 2017 Kia Soul. I am absolutely pleased with everything. The staff worked with me to get me in payments I could afford and in a new car that is awesome. I recommend Kia Tallahassee to anyone.

The staff was very friendly. I was just not told up front everythin that I needed to take with me in order to close the deal. It took us a while to sign the paper work but other than that I have no complaints. This is the 2nd vehicle we have purchased from Kia of Tallahassee.

I wish I could say my customer service was the same as some of the posts on here! What started out as a day long ordeal with sales to getting left hanging once I made the purchase on a used vehicle. I called the manager after a month long ordeal with a surgery and he to this day has not returned my call for 2 service problems I have with my car! I will find another Kia who is hopefully more helpful

1 Towing requires additional equipment. See Owner's Manual for towing capacity and additional information and warnings.

2 Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.

3 Warning: Driving while distracted can result in a loss of vehicle control that may lead to an accident, severe personal injury, and death. The driver's primary responsibility is in the safe and legal operation of a vehicle, and use of any handheld devices, other equipment, or vehicle systems which take the driver's eyes, attention and focus away from the safe operation of a vehicle or which are not permissible by law should never be used during operation of the vehicle.

Caution: Do not enter information into the navigation system while the vehicle is moving. Failure to pay attention to travel conditions and vehicle operation while the vehicle is in motion could result in loss of vehicle control. Operate the system only when it is safe to do so.
