With its stylish exterior, spacious interior and impressive inventory of equipment, it is easy to see why the Kia Sportage has won a long list of awards over the years since it was first launched in 1993.
The new Sportage brings Kia’s popular Crossover right up to date, with bold, contemporary styling. All models have alloy wheels, starting with 16-inch alloys for the entry level trim and increasing to 19-inches on the high-end specs. Premium quality black cloth upholstery gives the cabin a sophisticated appearance, complemented by smart interior finishes.
Trims 1, 2, KX-2, and GT-Line get a six-speaker audio system with DAB radio and MP3 compatibility. All other models feature an eight-speaker JBL sound system with front centre speaker, external amp and subwoofer. A seven-inch touchscreen satnav system is fitted on the 2, KX2, and the GT-Line edition.
You can choose either a petrol or a diesel engine for the Kia Sportage. The line-up includes a 1.6-litre GDi naturally aspirated petrol engine and a turbocharged edition. If you prefer a diesel engine you have a choice between a 1.7-litre CRDi and a 2.0-litre edition. The fastest to accelerate is the 1.6-litre T-GDi, which travels from 0-60mph in under nine seconds.
ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, and ESC with downhill brake control are provided as standard on the Sportage. All models also get emergency stop signalling, trailer stability assist and tyre pressure monitoring. Trims 2 and above add lane keep assist, and a speed limit information feature.
As for all of its new cars, Kia provides a seven year/100,000-mile warranty for the Sportage, so you can buy with complete confidence.

2016 Diesel Car Awards, Car of the Year and Best Medium SUV
