Consider a used 2017 Kia Sportage, if you want a crossover that delivers a stellar driving performance, whatever the setting.
With the wet Seattle winter just around the corner, you need a vehicle that will keep you on your intended path. Luckily, the Sportage comes with all-wheel drive so you stay upright when the roads get slick. Should the vehicle detect wheel spin, this newly improved system can send as much as 100% of engine output to either of the axles. This Kia also uses torque transfer when you make sudden turns.
If you want to have a bit of fun, this crossover is down for some light off-road adventures. According to Autobytel, you can lock the Sportage’s torque split to 50/50 by simply pushing a button. Once engaged, gravel streets, muddy potholes, and stretching puddles are no match for this Kia.
To further customize your behind the wheel experience, you can pick between three different driving modes: Normal, Eco, and Sport. If you choose the last one, the Sportage will sharpen steering, increase throttle, and hold lower gears longer, so your can add a touch of thrill to your trip to the corner store.
