In connection with the previous article, here are more crossovers that have flourished in 2017. You may want to check them out if you’re going to buy a car that is safe but not too expensive.
Kia Sportage LX
The 2017 Kia Sportage LX runs with 181 HP and can cross 26 MPG on both highway and city. You can ideally purchase it at $22,990. This is better than the 2016 Kia Sportage LX in a lot of respect, such as engine size, fuel capacity, and mileage.
The model is accessible in seven different colors. The wheels’ diameter is 17 inches. The door handles somewhat blend seamlessly to the body of the car since they are of the same hue. The front glass saturates the noise that comes from the outside. The rear glass, on the other hand, is paparazzi-proof and has a timer to adjust the number of minutes it will be heated.
There is a digital display for the backend camera in the central console. It has armrests ready for all the passengers, as well as cup and bottle holders. The coverings of the seats are high-quality fabric, and the rear ones can be inclined backward in seven angles.
It offers remote entry, one-touch window power, and hands-free control of your smartphone. The car has six speakers and a touchscreen monitor, too.
The interior has airbags, stability controls, and brake assistance for diverse environments.
Nissan Murano S
The 2017 Nissan Murano S deserves the price tag amounting to $29,740 due to its high-performance 260-HP engine. It has a fuel efficiency of 28 MPG when driving on the highways.
The newer version of Nissan Murano S now has Vehicle Dynamic Control apart from the Traction Control, which the 2016 model has had.
The alloy wheels of the vehicle have the dimensions of 18 inches by 7.5 inches. LED lights have been utilized for the lamps and indicator signals, as they consume considerably less energy than the others. The tinted backend glass offers privacy to the riders. The driver can also view the rear side of the car through the camera installed there.
The fabrics for the interior can be mocha, cashmere, or graphite. The trimmings that can match those colors are Brushed Silver or Jasper Pearlescent. The backseats can be folded to create a flat surface at the rear.
You can power up the car and open the compartment or doors without using any key. The digital display and central monitor are beautifully colored too. The temperature can be differentiated as well for the driver and front passenger.
The crossover has an anti-lock braking system and electronic brake-force distribution.
The 2017 Ford Explorer is a seven-seater crossover that has a standard mileage of 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. Its MSRP amounts to $31,660.
Ford has upgraded the SYNC function in the 2017 model to allow iPhone’s Siri to be integrated into the car and the use of normal speaking voice to make commands.
Since it is a medium-sized vehicle, the diameter of the wheels is 20 inches. There are upper side rails where you can mount a detachable roof rack. The new colors to choose from are white gold, smoked quartz, and canyon ridge.
Three rows of seats can be found inside this car. While the wooden steering wheel is leather-covered and heated, the seats are enveloped in quilted leather. They are also perforated to let some air pass through.
Near the left side are several illuminated buttons, which gives the driver the power to fold the backseat automatically for extra room. The liftgate can be activated by placing your foot underneath the rear compartment.
The steering wheel will vibrate when the sensors notice that you are veering away from the right lane. A 180-degree camera is fixed on the front part of the vehicle for greater visibility.
Buying a 2017 model is not the worst thing that you can do. That is especially true if you are thinking of getting one of the crossovers mentioned here and in the previous article.
