As I headed on down to the Tampa Auto Show to check out and test drive the latest vehicles from Kia (not including their latest reveal, the Kia Stinger…although I wish I had), I was looking forward to our mini road trip. Not only because my mom was with me but also because I was driving in the 2017 Kia Sportage. How could I not be happy?

Road trip in the 2017 Kia Sportage

The Hyper Red 2017 Kia Sportage with its black interior was sweet! Driving it brought back memories of the first time I drove in a Kia Sportage. I was 18 years (so not too long ago) and working at a company who did auto window tinting, so I had to drop it off at our warehouse. I remember thinking that it was a really nice car and given all the features they have added to it over the years, it is even more so now.

I had a fun day road tripping with my Mom and I am hoping we’ll be able to do it again real soon. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the 2017 Kia Sportage!
