The 2018 Kia Sportage, which was all-new for 2017, enters its first model year as a carry-over.  Kia’s award-winning vehicle offers advanced technology and greater options across three trim levels—LX, EX, and SX—in the popular subcompact utility segment.  A new technology package, previously available starting at EX trim, is now available at the LX level, delivering Blind Spot Detection, a Lane Departure Warning System, and Rear Cross Traffic alert1.  The EX trim receives a new Sport Appearance package and optional heated rear seats, while the SX adds an electronic parking brake for 2018.  All trim levels are still available with optional Dynamax full-time all-wheel drive.
