Each year, AutoPacific hosts the Ideal Vehicle Awards by handing out a national survey. In the survey, more than 54,000 people who own vehicles belonging to the 2016 or 2017 model year are asked about fifteen specific areas of their vehicle. The question that AutoPacific asks of their survey takers is what about these areas – including things like cabin storage, safety features, performance and ride quality – they would like to change in their vehicle. AutoPacific then determines their winners by awarding the vehicles with the fewest change suggestions or requests. This year, the 2017 Kia Sportage was named among the award-winning vehicles.

The Kia Sportage is currently in its fourth generation, and it’s the brand’s longest-running nameplate. Not only did it win this exciting award, but it was also honored in the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards earlier in the year as well. It’s touted for its striking, modern design combined with a spacious yet sturdy architecture. On the inside, it’s packed with driver-assistive safety features, performance and ride quality enhancements and plenty of features to enhance convenience and comfortability.
